Apple starts shipping 4G iPad mini models

Customers have begun receiving shipping notifications for their 4G LTE compatible iPad orders

Apple has begun notifying customers who have ordered 4G LTE compatible iPad minis that their devices have been shipped.

Apple Insider reports that several of its readers in the US have received emails from Apple that read: "We're happy to let you know that the items below are on their way to you."

The orders are scheduled to arrive this Friday, 16 November, and it looks like both the black and slate and white and silver colour options are being sent out.

On the UK online Apple Store, the dispatch estimate is still stating 'Late November'.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
