This has to be one of the most immature comments i've ever heard. Can we keep the discussion at the adult level? It's fine to support your preferred product, but there is no need for name calling.

Yea, I know the convention is to use the emoticons to denote joking, but I don't always do it because I expect people to just get it... It kind of ruins any humor to have to tell people where the punch line is!

A friend of mine got a 12 inch PB delivered last Friday. She said that she ordered the newest model. I told her to check and make sure that they didn't send her an old one as it seemed a little early, but who knows, maybe she got one of the firsts!

I was going to get the 12" but ended up going for the 15" and it came two days later - I was amazed ... and this is down here in Oz!!

Still glad to hear the 12"s are out now too - I haven't regretted getting the new PB once - it's a truly sweet machine. :D

This is a sore subject for some of us; they have been shipping in a strange order. Many reports are coming from people who ordered theirs on 9/16 after the keynote who are receiving theirs, when many others (myself included) who ordered as early as the 4th (or the 10th in my case) are still waiting for shipment.

But from what I hear, the new 12" is great! Can't wait to get mine!

I want to add that my Powerbook has made it out of custums, and has no been moved up to tommorow morning to receive. Too bad I don't get home until 7 pm tommorow! :(

I ordered mine the day after the announcement, but I'm an education user. That might of moved me up in priority.

I ordered mine the morning after the announcement and I've been pushed back to the 3rd. I think it's because Apple hates me. I got a 10gig ipod a couple days ago and I'm just playing solitaire until my pb comes to give it some meaning. I was also wondering how all you people know that your shipping options have changed?

Sep 30, 2003, 12:26 AM
Yea, I got my 10gig iPod a few days ago, and apple also postponed my PB12 to the 3rd, and im in canada so their overnight shipping is 3-6 days :-/ Either way, I did call and bitch and atleast Im getting my overnight shipping money back (22 dollars) but I have a secret plan to call and whine once Panther is out - I want it for free for having to wait :( I ordered... a LONG time ago ... I think atleast three weeks ish if not longer.

Is this about 'the emoticon denotes a joke so people will get it'? And did you get it? Now I'm curious... :p

M.

PS. if a joke is so lame it needs an emoticon for people to get it, reconsider posting it. Shucks, that goes for this post too. Sorry about that.
I thought that emoticons were an awkward way to replace body language, which of course is utterly absent in a forum like this... *shrugs*

If you ordered from Apple, the standard 2 day shipping they are upgrading everyone to is 2nd day once it reaches the US and clears Customs. Mine was shipped from Taiwan on the 22nd and I still don't have it.

Just gave the Apple Store a call, because my 15'' PB was supposed to be here already (ordered on september 18th).

However, because of shortage of AE cards, it is now due for delivery somewhere early in the week of the 13th of October :(

I can't wait anymore!!!:mad:

i ordered mine on the 3rd of sept. but have not received it yet. the free upgrade to 1GHz model has made it worth the wait, don't you think?

When I ordered my 12" powerbook from an independant retailer, he said that if I ordered it with the 1gb module of ram it'd take a quite cause those modules aren't readily available yet, not even to apple. So that might be the cause of some people's delays.

slightly off topic, but does anyone know if there's a way to put in a better video card in the powerbooks? I know you can't order a better one to come with it, but I was wondering if you could open it up and put in one yourself. Never owned a powerbook, unfortunately, but I am definitely thinking of getting one. I just wanted it to have a better video card when I got it.

My 12" just shipped via Fed-Ex from Taiwan. I ordered 9/10 (and was upgraded to the new model 9/16).

It's a combo, 60 gig hard drive, Airport Extreme.

Fed-Ex tracking says it should be delivered Friday morning :D

The 15" and 17" have a Radeon 9600. Doesn't get much better than that :D

Hi,

New to these forums...

Shipping date of my 15" (ordered Sept. 20) has just been bumped from Sept. 29 to Oct. 6.

Funny if it's because of a shortage of AE cards (as was mentioned earlier)... I ordered an AE base at the same time and that arrived last week.

Gus
Sep 30, 2003, 10:47 AM
Yep, got my 12" PB yesterday around 9 AM CDT.

I think if you ordered through the Ed Stoe you were given priority, because I ordered on 9/16, and got it fairly quickly.

Love this machine!!!!

Finally, WarCraft II with no lags. Whew!

Regards,
Gus

Good news for those who ordered early.

Guys with big powerbooks are likely trying to compensate for something alright.

I'm trying to compensate for the lack of an external monitor to use in extended desktop mode - especially one that travels.

Sep 30, 2003, 11:43 AM
I ordered mine on the 17th and my date has been bumped from the 26th to 10/3. For me, at least, the ed store doesn't seem to be getting any priority. 12", Superdrive, AE, 256MB Base RAM. 60GB. The sooner for me the better, we have fall break next week and I want it before then. This is my first PowerBook and I am very excited!

To those who have recieved theirs, how long does transit take after shipment?

i visited the apple store at CompUSA in Tallahassee, FL yesterday, Sept 29, and they had all of the new model powerbooks (1GHz 12", 1.25GHz 15", and 1.33GHz 17") and they had a few in stock. i asked the lady about it and theyve had them for a few days apparently. also, they've got a good supply of 1.6 and 1.8GHz powermac G5s, but are still waiting on the dual 2.0. i also got to use the isight. not too shabby, but the colors weren't very vivid at all. my crappy intel webcam has better colors than it... or maybe it was just a bad model or there was some setting set or something. who knows...

I ordered my 15" Powerbook through the Educational Store on the 17th and still do not have it (and it is a standard config) so apparently they did not give all Educational people priority.

well, i learned my lesson with ordering from the apple store with the g5. i bought ordered a 1.8 stock g5 from the apple store edu style, and i walked into the easton apple store and they were in stock when my ship date got pushed back to 3 weeks after that... needless to say i just cancelled my order and picked one up at the store. i'm sure that'll be the case with a lot of people.

things to note with the delays: airport extreme cards as well as 1GB mem chips are the main causes of delays here, so expect a wait if you ordered these components. if you ordered a stock machine, expect to get yours first, regardless of when you ordered it.

I ordered the exact same configuration, trox, and mine was bumped to Oct. 3 too. That is, until this morning, when it shipped via FedEx. :D

It looks like the 60GB BTO models are starting to roll off the assembly line, so keep your fingers crossed and try to limit your visits to the order status page to one every couple of hours.

FedEx thinks they'll have the powerbook here (Vancouver) by Friday lunch. Which suggests a staggeringly unproductive weekend awaits me.

My edu store today got at least 9 12inch powerbooks today. They said they ordered about 100 15inch powerbooks too.

no lag on warcraft 2? It's a 2d game from the 90s. There's no way a 867mhz wouldn't have been able to run it smoothly. Maybe you were talking about warcraft 3? :)

The only laptop where you can upgrade your graphics card is the voodoopc/alienware laptops i think.

I know for sure that you cant upgrade your graphics card for apple powerbooks/ibooks. (and yes, it kinda sux that the new 12inches didn't get the 9600. One reason why i'm going to get the 15inch when panther gets released)

my 12" battery order just got delayed as well... does this mean that apple doesn't have enough 12" batteries, or are they just going to send it with the pb (if and) when it ships?

Peej
Sep 30, 2003, 05:53 PM
I ordered it on the 17th through Ed Store and got it yesterday. It's so sweet! They had changed my shipping date from 9.25 to 10.3 but when I called them they said that Apple would probably send it sooner, and it went out on the 26th. I went with the 12" combo drive stock, b/c I figured that any customizations would kill my ship time. I'll pick up an AE card and RAM from mac-warehouse, and an extra battery if needs dictate. I also went with the 2-day shipping, and it shipped fedex. Also, I called about the Apple Education Bundle offer and they told me that as long as it was purchased by the 27th, I would have 30 days from the ship date to complete the rebate. So, my printer shipped UPS right away from Cali, the iPod shipped Airborne the next day from Asia, and the 12" shipped like I said, and they only charged me $22. All in all it's been a pleasant experience, and I'm really looking forward to loading Protools, and the Adobe Creative Suite and seeing how well this little baby runs! By the way, My Dell 5100 laptop that my lab owns and I use looks like a Univac in comparison. Viva les Macs!!:D

Well, I type this to you now the proud owner of a new 12" from lovely downtown Toronto, so they are obviously shipping some orders here. However, I'm a student and ordered through the UofT campus computer store, so that may have given me priority.

Some things to note on this new baby, it's running 10.2.7 which if I recall was at first thought only to be for the new G5's? Though I may be wrong. Also, I'm not sure if previous PB's had this, but on the F7 key there is a graphic of two offset rectangles - am I wrong in thinking this may have something to do with Panther's Expose feature? Or I could be totally wrong on both counts...

At our campus' Mac Users Group, a rep from Apple came to demo both a new G5 and a prerelease version of Panther. The F7 key does control a function of expose to answer your question. I must say, after a preview of it, it is SWEEEEET! Hopefully the rumors are true and we will get panther sometime next month.

The thought of those people whom buy expensive cars to compensate for things come to mind...


Seriously - the correlation between manhood size and (the fact) that one could think another is inferior by the size of their computer (!) is amazing to me.


Then again, it's human material nature. Sure, you are such a man with your 17" powerbook. You can go ahead and think that. Works for me. I own a 12" powerbook, however, and it works perfectly for my business and pleasurable computing needs.

I'd say no you can't change the graphics card. BTW even though the FX5200Go is no Radeon Mobility 9600, it should be much better than anything previously available in PowerBooks. The 32MB shouldn't be a problem, because the resolution on the 12" is only 1024*768.
Let us know how it goes and if UT2003 runs well on it.

All in good fun, I hope. I love Canada. In fact, I stayed up until 1am to watch "Kids in the Hall" on Comedy Central. You've got Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet, and a bunch of other amazing bands. So, Canada's a great place to be. Besides, I'm from California. Fire away. I'm used to it.

I have now received two emails from Apple saying the delivery of the Powerbook 12" has been further delayed. Here we go again, Apple always being late in delivering their new equipment... I will stick with Apple but they could learn a lot about contacting their customers in a nicer way, not just 'it's delayed, best wishes blah blah blah'. No phone number, email address, zilch. grrrr
Additionally even though the iPod is ready they won't ship it to me because I paid with a credit card, which means that all has to be sent at the same time. GREAT!

I realise that this is a 12" topic, but the 1GB chips were mentioned...
i ordered my 15" on the 18th Sep... but i also included a 1GB chip... and i have a feeling that the '2-3 weeks' time delivery that i was told is not so reliable.... 2 weeks have gone already... if i am thinking i will be getting it some time next week, is this wishful thinking?? are these chips actually available at all?, or just in low supply...:confused: i am losing sleep waiting for this machine!!! :o
oh yeah, and im in australia too... often things are delayed here. :rolleyes:
any ideas or comments greatly appreciated!:)

my 15'' that I've also ordered on the 18th, with 1 Gig RAM and 5200 rpm HD is expected to ship late next week. So I guess that I can expect it to be here (netherlands) early somewhere in the week after that (14th/15th October?)

If I were you, I would count on something like the same planning

Oh well, i've already been waiting for 9 months or so to get this machine, so this extra week I'll manage to get through....

i ordered the 12" 1ghz pb w/768mb on sept. 3. i checked my order tracking page at the apple web site and it said my order had shipped this morning:D :D :D :D :D they shipped it fedex and have a tracking # posted. talk about a long wait. they have not sent me an email conformation yet, however.
