Has your Mac Pro w/ 8800 GT been shipped or received?
Assumption: You already ordered a MP with 8800GT.

The "mine hasn't shipped yet" threads are dying quickly. It seems like the majority of buyers either have their machine in hand or it's on the way.

Poll up!

Yes, this mornings email from Apple tells me mine has now shipped. It wont actually ship until tomorrow, because it's sunday, but monday is 10 days sooner than my original ship date given from Apple.

I do know a lot of us have been calling and complaining that Feb orders have been received, and Apple may have started looking at why this is happening. I called Apple about it yesterday, and suddenly today mine is ready to go. I'm so happy right now.

Well, I'm glad more people have theirs in hand on on the way now than don't. I may call Apple tonight to see what they say. Last time I called the guy was overseas and offered 2-3 day expedited shipping w/o me asking. He also volunteered that was the most he could do. Since he was overseas, 2-3 day expedited was the best option on his screen. Domestic call centers could do overnight and more...

I, as always, am neither for both. I think when I see a different status my mind might go into shock :eek:

Good idea for a thread, but the poll will be inaccurate as no one can change their poll status once their mac actually is package and ships.

I, as always, am neither for both. I think when I see a different status my mind might go into shock :eek:

I've been following your status, checking to see when your system is packaged and ships. It's really unfortunate you're still waiting (as for everyone else waiting as well). Of course, you'll have to let us know when it does get packaged.

I think "eyecool" is misreading things here. The last thread I posted on was dozens and dozens of people that ordered in January *before* the MacWorld and still haven't seen a ship notice.

Also we are not even half-way through February and most of the ship dates on that thread were March. Seems unrealistic to expect them to ship almost a month early.

We'll do a new poll tomorrow afternoon... Hopefully more of us get shipping notification. We can tell how fast they're working at Apple. Wow, No's are growing tonight. Could it really still be 50/50?

Honestly, I think if you do a re-poll, you should do it Wednesday/Thursday.

Those threads have slowed down considerably because a lot of people received a shipping notice or work station since that poll/thread started. Check out the results of that poll: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=430373&page=7

Sure, this one isn't scientific, but it updates the #'s from the previous poll.

I think it's fair to say that these things are finally flying out the door... to those whose MP hasn't yet shipped, fear not, she'll be "en route" in no time.

Ordered Jan, 17th. Got an e-mail w/tracking number on Feb. 9th. FedEx does not have the tracking number on file yet, but the Apple rep I talked to assured me it has indeed shipped and the FedEx ground items sometimes get scanned in batches and will not show up right away. She said I should have it by the 14th.

I just called Apple. Annie answered. She was older. I couldn't be mean to her. She apologized so many times and told me it must be the wifi card, but thats her only guess. Then she went down the rest of my order that hasn't shipped, one by one, reading the ship and receive dates. Damnit, I should have requested overnight shipping. All I could think about was going for the $150 back jugular but I pussed out. I gave her the "but everyone around here already has theirs" and other stories, but all she did was apologize.

I am set to ship on the 13th and receive the 15th. If it doesn't show shipped at 12:00:01 AM, feb 13th, I am going to call and rip whoever answers the phone an new one.

Hope more of you received yours today and even more get them tomorrow.

Wow, it is soooo beautiful. I'm impressed, with so many CPU's nothing so far has maxed all 8 of them. I'm in Canada (Toronto) if anyone is curious of when you should be getting yours. I ordered mine at the end of Jan.

So, did you get the MP on the 14th? I'm kind of in the same boat - I had my shipping notice sent on on Friday 2/29, but can't see any tracking information on FedEx...
