Have you been looking for one ? Good luck, you and countless others. With a retail of $329 they're available right here on Amazon for $440 from a third party dealer - plus S&H.
I figured I'd give Apple a shot and just order it from their website since I didn't need it for Christmas but for a birthday on Dec. 27. I ordered it on Saturday December 15 from and paid $329 + tax with free shipping. They said they'd inform me when it became available. On Monday Dec. 17 I received a tracking number from Apple with a link to FedEx saying it had been picked up and was on it's way, be there Dec. 21. On Tuesday it was in Shanghai, China (!) but still guaranteed to be there Friday. Lo and behold, on the afternoon of Thursday Dec. 20 about noon FedEx knocked on the door with my mini iPad, a mere 48 hours after it left China. Will this happen again if Amazon is out of an Apple product and I need it quickly? I'm not sure, but I'll at least know I have other options if I need them. Thanks Apple and FedEx!

I ordered a Mac Mini last Wednesday afternoon. It was at my door on Thursday. With free shipping.

That's insane.

Say what you want about Apple products but they know how to treat their customers.
