Status now says "Sent To Manufacturing". Makes sense, I upgraded the hard drive to 60GB. Still August 2 delivery though.

Same exact thing here too. Same status and date and same upgrade. I can't wait to get it!

Mine will ship on.....August 2nd.

At least my printer shipped today, and my 60-gig iPod will ship later this week (tomorrow?).

If we're lucky they just threw the 2nd out there as a date they were sure they could ship them by. On the other hand...demand may be way ahead of supply... :rolleyes: :confused:

Oh well, good luck to us all!

Thanks for all the replies, it's good to know where things stand...

My 20 gig iPod shipped this evening, the only thing that sucks is that I will be going on vacation for the first part of next week, and that my summer job and apartment are an hour away from my home, where I had my stuff shipped (no permanent address up here :-\)

So yeah, stock 12" for me
Can't F'n wait!

August 2nd for me as well.... Planning for 1gb of RAM... Does anyone think this is overkill or too little?

MINE JUST GOT DELIVERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So Itasor, I assume you are getting the new one, right? I called and they are only discounting them $100. For $100, it seems to me a no brainer to take the new one especially since it has more built in RAM. The BT is a nice bonus too.

As far as the question on 1GB of RAM, seems about right to me for this config. Adding an extra 512MB is probably the perfect thing to do.

Yeah, I had a choice, but $100 for faster processor, native scrolling, SMS, BT, newer hardware, and bragging rights was enough to justify the extra. I also paid $50 for the 60GB.

I've ordered the 12" with 80 gigs as well and i'm seeing August 2nd. Too bad i'm gonna be out of town from August 1st to the 4th. I'm gonna be so excited to get back. This is my first mac since the growing up with the Apple IIGS. So excited to make the switch.

I ordered the standard one from the UK apple store and my status is "Shipped" :D (it was sitting on 02/08 for about 24 hours then changed).

It says:

Carrier : Kuhne & Nagel Spedition s.a r.
Tracking Number(s) :

I tried that tracking number on their site but it didnt work. Am i right in thinking that its with Kuhne & Nagel in a bulk shipment thats heading to Europe/UK?

My iPod shipped from a PA Warehouse late last night, so that means it'll be rolling into my area mid-morning and hopefully make it out for the afternoon run!

tsk
Jul 27, 2005, 06:55 PM
So does Apple really not have any stock of any BTO configs? It just seems to me insane that they don't have a stack of iBooks with all different size drives ready to ship. With BT built in, it's not like there are really that many options (HD + RAM are pretty much it).

My iBook was listed as August 2nd, but about an hour ago it was changed from Manufacturing to Preparing Shipment, I think I can expect it to ship tomorrow afternoon. I wish I could go back and expedite it now.

I may be one of the firsts though, I ordered an old iBook July 17th, and I think I was one of the firsts to be moved to the updated iBook.

I think only if you paid for overnight shipping or something like that.

FedEx Home and Express are basically two seperate companies.

FedEx Home delivery does I believe deliver on Saturday.

But with FedEX Express (the overnight, 2 Day or 2-3 day delivery), they only deliver on Saturday if you pay $10 extra.

This may have changed recently. I don't ship as much as I used to and many of the shipping companies seem to be doing stuff on Saturday (my Dell 2005FPW was shipped on a Saturday).

PS. I called FedEx and talked to the Apple Shipping rep (I guess they have one, or at least someone who works with apple a lot) and though my package is sitting in China, she told me that it'll be in my area on 8/2... she also said new PowerBooks next Tuesday, but I think that is a stretch

Same order here o/! Still in Processing Order, too. Hopefully I can get my hands on my brand new ibook next week :p. But I am afraid it will be delayed to week after that..

How long have they manufactured your machines guys? It says 3-5 days but can they be faster? And the shipping is 3-7 days :o. Are they any faster :D?

Sofar my standard 12" is still stuck in China (Suzhou, near Shanghai). The tracking status hasn't changed for over a day now.

Did anyone who ordered online/phone already saw his iBook on the tracking page leaving China? Or are they piling them up there to ship them out all in one go somewhere next week?

I'm not sure where you are... but i'm in california... i assume if it catches the plane on Saturday morning (which is NOW PST)... then it can arrive at the CA sorting center by Sunday.... sort and ship.. I might even get it on the 2nd... that is IF it ships out of Shanghai today... i'll be doing alot of refreshing off of the FEDEX site.. ;)

Edit: I read that FEDEX might use a processing sight in Alaska... which means it might take longer to get here... they also might not have updated the FEDEX site... the next line could just read 'arrived at sorting center' or something....

Now that's Customer Service!!

I expected it to go to manufacturing first. Got an e-mail confirming today but it says delivery should be in 6-7 business days :(

I spoke with customer service supervisors at both Apple and FedEx today (I didn't ask to speak with them, but was transfered to them). Both came back after significant hold times and said that the division of FedEx handling the Apple containers to and from the US from China is open only on weekdays. However, the direct number for that division is 800-455-4588. They recommended I call on Monday.

Good luck to everyone else.

Does that mean nothing goes through on weekends? I hope that explains why my iBook is still in their facility after 3 days.

Honestly, I wouldn't necessarily trust the shipping info. It seems as if there is some lag in all of this. I would suspect we'll all have a better idea of where we sit come Monday morning.

Mine's shipped and I'm patiently waiting for it as well. Honestly I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to hit reload every 30 seconds on the tracking info.

Jul 30, 2005, 02:38 PM
Quite a long shipping times, as it seems. I thought shipping would take 3-5 days after completing the payment! My payment got confirmed in 29th, product shipped today (30th) but my Shipment notification says "The expected delivery time for your order is 5 - 6 days." which indeed sucks. 1-2 days +1 days more shows that apple is indeed battling with quite a demand right now.

Oh well, if it is due to be shipped in next Friday or Saturday it suits me just fine. I usually work long days except on friday anyway.

It is now Monday morning in Shanghai. I am predicting the iBooks held up there will begin moving out today.

Just a reminder, if you ordered your iBook on Tuesday of last week and it shipped on the the 29th like mine, it has only been in the FedEx system one business day. If it doesn't arrive until the 2nd, it would have been 3 business days, exactly what you paid for with expedited shipping. It's not late per se, although it would of been nice if they didn't have to come all the way from China.


My status just changed to "picked up", and the estimated ship is August 3rd, 10:30AM, so I guess they should be shipping out today.

Remember, you paid for 2-3 *business* day shipping, business days do not include Saturday and Sunday. Be patient, if it arrives by Tuesday, you're getting what you paid for.

Ok...if it shipped on the 27th then two days later would be what? THE 29TH...or maybe even the 30th if it was running a little late....even if it was running really late it would be here by August 1st...but even the second is just too late

Mine didn't ship until the 29th and I ordered immediately after the Apple Store came back online on the 26th.

Well mine still says the ship date was the 27th of June

Does the UK Apple store have a tracking facility? Because if it does, I'm not seeing it. On my shipping email though I was given a 'delivery reference number' (or something like that anyway) which I have tried on the TNT website but it doesn't recognise it. Also, on my order status page, under shipping method, it says 'Merge in Transit NL'. Does that mean it's going via the Netherlands or something?

Nice. My iBook entered the system on the 29th, so I can hope it will be here by the 4th.

I am seeing a 15 to 16 hour delay on information posting to the tracking site, adjusting for the time difference. It is now 5am on Monday in China. Knowing how Fedex likes doing things in the early morning, I hope it's on it's way across the Pacific, however at the current rate, I won't know until 7am tomorrow morning my time.

Yeh, I'm just gonna stop checking my tracking until late monday and see if moved. Good luck, hope ya get it soon.

FedEx is based out of Memphis, like Delta is based out of Atlanta. It's their main hub for North America and most of their Express packages are routed through Memphis overnight.

Thanks for the info!

I spoke to someone in Shanghai. She said the bulk shipment my iBook is a part of is being loaded on a plane at Shanghai International Airport and will be flying out of Shanghai tonight, in about 12 hours.

Departing Shanghai -> 12 hours (10am Monday EDT)
Shanghai to the West Coast -> 12 hours (10pm Monday EDT)
West Coast to Memphis to Savannah -> 7 hours (5am Tuesday EDT)
Savannah Depot to Tybee Island -> 5 hours (by 10:30am Tuesday EDT)

Just to recap, my iBook was first scanned on the 29th at 11:30pm.

Does your tracking have an estimated delivery yet? I was kind of skeptical it would make my August 3rd, 10:30AM delivery considering I only got the free shipping, but now it looks like i'll be a happy camper come Wednesday afternoon. Yesssss, finally, I know the wait will be worth it. Good luck to all in getting your iBooks.

Hey, how does the tracking system work?

Got two numbers... I enter the one starting with a W and it tells me my order has shipped. The other one I guess can tell me where it is - but where do I type this number? I am using the euro store. I feel very stupid.

Can someone give me pointers?

Its not very clear for UK orders, but go to here (http://www.tnt.com/webtracker/tracker.do?navigation=1&respLang=en&respCountry=GB&genericSiteIdent=) and enter your delivery reference number (make sure you click the ref number radio button) then submit.

This works a charm. The TNT site also says not found for me too - but apecode gives a delivery estimate of 8th Aug for my iB so I guess TNT don't know about it yet...

Anyone got the new ibook?

Today is August 1, 2005 in Hongkong. I got the new 12in ibook right at 7pm (HK Time).

Unluckily we don't have an official Apple Store, so we can only buy through the very few resellers. I was looking at the stock moving in the reseller shop at 7pm and was the first one who bought the new ibook.

In Hongkong, it's pretty much the same shipping time of buying from Apple Online Store and from a reseller. So, our earliest arrival date should be today.

Did you guys get yours?

Heres my tracking, do you think mine will still ship Wednesday like it says? Does yours have an estimated delivery yet?

Your package shows the same shipment exception mine does. From reading past posts I seem to recall that the : "Package received after FedEx cutoff" note is a code FedEX uses for a variety of reasons and does not necessarily indicate the package didn't get shipped. I believe that both our packages are enroute and will probably arrive in the US later today. I wouldn't guarantee when it gets delivered, but I think sometime this week for sure.

Then I get online to track my package today and it still didnt update. My package shipped on the 27th and it still says its in China!!! So I call today and they dont know exactly where it is and they tell me it will be at my house by 10:30 am on wednesday....do these FedEx people not communicate with each other or what!! One person tells me tuesday, then one tells me wednesday, and then one doesnt know where the hell it is. I paid for 2-3 day shipping and even though i got a refund it wasnt about the money in the first place, i paid the extra amount bc i wanted it faster. And it does make me feel a little better that i got a refund but I still think it is ridiculous how it still is not here and isnt expected here till wednesday (or tuesday; depends on which Fed Ex person u talk to)

Pay by wire is what stupid people do. Know why? Because I pay by credit card I get an extra 2 year warranty without paying for it.

And to answer your other smart comment. I can't have it delivered to work because they won't accept personal packages.

I ordered standard 3-5 day shipping so I can't comment on that.

What I am curious on is whether this is a FedEX or FedEX Ground shipment. It seems like this is FedEX meaning I expect to see it in 2 days.

Mine is in Indianapolis. Left Indianapolis at 10:30 AM EST Monday, sooooo I'm hoping that it is on the east coast now, and will be delivered tomorrow.

But Fedex is estimating that it will be here on Wednesday.
