Wiis demand still has not matched supply, so you gotta hit the right store at the right time to snag one. If you need help locating one, look around here for rumors and links to store inventory:

As far as insider info, was that link what you're looking for? Your question is kinda vague.

Spend the extra bucks and get some rechargeable batteries. It'll save you money in the long run.

That and have fun!

Insider info, eh?

If you see a Wiimote and a Nunchuk, BUY IT! Do not pass go, do not collect $200. 'cause odds are that you won't see them again.

Some games have a learning curve. Don't get frustrated. Just spend some extra time. You'll get it eventually.

Wear your wrist strap! Wear it diligently.

Buy a rechargable battery kit. It will save you money in the long run.

I think that's about it
