Unless you got incredibly drunk last night and you don’t know what day it is, you’re probably already aware of the fact that the iPad Air launches today. And if you don’t want to venture out and wait in line to get one, you can order yours now from the Apple online store.

The device is available in a whole host of countries — we’ve listed them below for your convenience — and prices start at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model. The 32GB Wi-Fi model is $599, the 64GB model is $699, and the 128GB model is $799. If you want 4G connectivity, you’ll pay $629 for the 16GB model, $729 for the 32GB model, $829 for the 64GB model, and $949 for the 128GB model.

As you might expect, demand for the iPad Air is high, so shipping times have already slipped. In the U.S., the devices won’t be dispatched until November 4 now, but in certain countries — including the U.K. — they’re still being shipped “within 24 hours.”

You’ll need to act fast if you don’t want a lengthy wait for your device, then. The quickest way to get your hands on one, of course, is to visit your local Apple store, or a third-party retailer that sells Apple devices. But you’re likely to find lines, and there’s no guarantee you’ll get one. Having said that, it appears Apple has lots to go around.

If you’re hoping to pick up a Retina iPad mini instead, don’t forget that that’s not available until “later in November,” so you won’t find those in stores today.

Countries getting the iPad Air today: U.S., Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China (Wi-Fi models only), Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macao (Wi-Fi models only), Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K.
