The new iPad mini with Retina display is still quite hard to find and generally only available through Apple's online store.  However, in a sign that the rollout of the product may be expanding in time for the Black Friday holiday shopping frenzy, an analyst reports that the device can now be found for purchase in some New York City Apple stores.  Need a laugh? Let this website come up with your next Facebook status "Three weeks after the iPad Air became available at Apple Retail Stores, the iPad mini with Retina Display has made its way to a few Apple Retail Stores in NYC for walk-in customers, possibly portending a wider rollout in the U.S. and around the world over the next week," wrote Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White in a note to clients Friday.  Even before Apple unveiled the new version of the iPad mini with the higher-resolution display last month, analysts had expected it would be in short supply this holiday season.

Apple Retina displays are reportedly already in the supply channel for the rumored redesigned MacBook Pros, but they are not going to come cheap. Retina displays for the revamped MacBook Pros could cost Apple almost $100 more per unit than the current screens it uses for its 15-inch Pro, which is the model expected to launch as early as next month. Apple pays $68 per display on the 15-inch models now, and would pay $160 for the Retina display, according to DisplaySearch senior analyst Richard Shim.
