The company unveiled the second generation iPad mini tablet late last month, saying at the time it would be available in "late November".

Apple says the iPad mini with Retina display is available to order through its online store, via online reservation for pick up at its retail stores, and through select Apple authorised resellers.

The Apple store currently lists a shipping time of 1-3 business days for the 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi only models of the device, with all other models listing a ship time of 5-10 business days.

Initial stock levels are unknown, though various reports suggest Apple could struggle with the supply of the Retina display component on the tablet.

Hardware analyst firm IHS Suppli said Apple would ship less than four million iPad mini with Retina display tablets in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Pricing of the iPad mini with Retina Display is more expensive than the previous model in both Australia and New Zealand, and is as follows.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
