I just read on the Apple Discussions Forums that someone said that there MBA was "Prepared for Shipment". Just checking to see if this is true ? I hope they will be in the stores by next week.

Just checked mine..
"prepared for shipment as well"
however I don't know what it said before that as I never checked it..
I would think that if they had a bunch out for display at macworld...more than likely the stock was being prepared, if not already prepared at that time.
Hopefully they will be shipping soon!

I got the 1.6/80GB model.

Order placed at 1/15 1:09pm MST, mine also shows "Prepared for Shipment".

Any guesses where these are shipping from? SE Asia?

Mine is Prepared as well. Ordered 7:16 PM Pacific on Tuesday. 1.6/80 gig model.

Awesome that Apple is getting them out quicker than expected. Hope the Apple TV update will be out sooner as well.

If they're prepared I can't see Apple sitting on them for two weeks! That would suck:eek:

I emailed Amazon to see what the update is with them. Maybe by tomorrow Amazon will have something.
