I don't live that close to a Wal-Mart, so I had this shipped to a FedEx store near me. The price on Wal-Mart was too good to beat! I saw ONE review that the shipping was terrible, but I hoped that the ship-to-store option would be better. Wrong. :( The iPad mini seems fine so far, but I was so anxious when I opened the box and tested the iPad. The delivery box was much bigger, and had very little padding inside. It was dented, the tape was coming off, and even the FedEx worker commented on how badly the box was beaten up. To top it off, the shipping was delayed from a Thursday/Friday to a late Monday afternoon. Not terrible... but if they can't promise the given delivery date, they should overestimate. The delay, I think, was due to the fact that they only processed my order that Thursday afternoon. (They called to confirm my purchase, which was nice for an order this large, but took way too long!) The iPad mini is great so far though! It's the perfect size for me. 10" was a little too heavy for me over long periods of time, and the 7" seemed too skinny. The 7.9 is a great compromise between the two standard sizes, and it's VERY light. If purchasing from Wal-mart, I'd suggest buying it in-store or at least ship-to-store using a Wal-mart option.
