Out of curiousity, does anyone know how long--on average--it takes for the Apple Store online to fulfill an order? I'm just wondering what the experience of Apple Store online shoppers has been. I had just placed an order for a 550/512/30 TiBook on Monday night. It is currently "being assembled." I am not impatient (I was fully aware of the potential 7 day wait time), but just curious what the experience of other shoppers have been. Thanks.

For me,

Longest wait: 5 days (G4 733)
Shortest wait: 2 days (Pismo)

It depends on how many people ordered the same configed Powerbook as you did. First come, first shipped

Here in UK -

Placed order for Dual 1Ghz with AppleStore online on Monday PM.
They called me today (Wednesday) AM to confirm CC/Del details.
It's in the 'post' 6 hours later ....

For once I'm impressed - it took AppleStore FOUR WEEKS to ship my 10.1 update CD!!

this is like straight out of the Twilight Zone ...

1. Monday: Apple presents the new Powermacs

2. Tuesday: I see tha prices at my Apple Dealer

3. Wednesday:I switch from 933 to DualGhz (pure lust)
4. Wed evening: I order my machine
5. Wed night: I pay my machine by online banking

6. Thursday: Pure Agony ...

7. Friday morning 8.30 AM: BINGO!!! The Postman brings my DualGhz!!

This is record breaking by Apple ... never have gotten any Dell machine faster than that ...

I ordered my 1Ghz tower + apple declined the order!! Anyway, I fixed the problem, then re-ordered (on friday) and it still says under review! How long will this stay like this?
