Was this the $20 version or the full priced 10.2?

Yes this was the full priced version, sort of. I got the education discount but it's still the same thing. I ordered on the 14th of this month!:D :D :D

Has anyone else noticed that the "Being Assembled" icon still depicts an old beige G3 tower? "Retro". :p

(Or is that a tribute to how long it takes them to assemble it? :eek: :D )

1999? I thought they were 1699...

I would have gotten the 166MHz Bus, just because....

But hell, thats about 5 times faster than my G4 400MHz!

is there any way to check the status of my order if i ordered it over the phone? when i check my online history it doesn't list it....

i guess i'll check the email and see... i haven't received a shipped email yet though... and i did get that email saying i'd get the tracking number and it'd be valid as of wednesday. so i don't know what's up...

edit: yeah, i found it... the other thing i ordered at the same time shipped awhile ago so it says "partially shipped" but really i have no idea how the jaguar end of the deal is actually progressing yet... dang!

Still waiting. So much for receiving my tracking details by Wednesday or Thursday. So much for having it before Saturday. So much for paying $23.50 for overnight shipping.

I think, in retrospect, Apple shouldn't have made with the pre-charging of shipping and sending out the nice little e-mails saying people would get tracking numbers on Thursday or Friday. If I'd seen nothing until a ship notification next Monday, it would have been what I originally expected, so I wouldn't have been disappointed. However, all they seem to have ended up doing (in my case at least, I know others have tracking numbers and that some people have already received it) with pre-charging and telling people they'd get their copies in time is create false hopes that I might have it this week.

:(

So your tracking number is 96118080476556317? Got it.
:D :rolleyes:

[Given this thread was about OS X shipping...]

I'm so curious to find out why so many people are willing to pay $129 (or get discounts) and are willing to post threads on it when originally many here wanted a free upgrade to Jaguar. :D :p

It's called "accepting reality" :D

Hmm, it gets better. The little pictures now show my item as "Shipped" (whereas previously it was just "Partially Shipped").

However, under the two copies of Jaguar in the actual manifest it says "No items shipped'.

So apparently my order has both shipped and not shipped. Seems Schrodinger's Cat was a Jaguar.

Mine's installed. I am impressed.

Lucky...looks like mine will arrive tomorrow.

Although the tracking information says it arrived locally this morning, but was "not due to be delivered" today. :confused:

Ah, well. Tomorrow I'll be happy! :)

Well, we finally got tracking numbers - it looks like it'll be here tomorrow.

However, some poor Apple Customer Service Rep is going to get an earful early tomorrow morning. We paid for next day service - which came to $23 for the two copies. They shipped it yesterday - second-day air. Second-day air shipping for two copies of Jaguar is $5.

Now, since it'll be here on Friday I've no real problem with them downgrading the shipping, as long as it gets here in time. What I do have a serious problem with is Apple pocketing $23 and then sending it via the $5 shipping option. They already charged the shipping on the 18th, which is handy as it'll thus be a separate charge on the card from the actual software.

We are going to get that extra $18 back, even if it means disputing the charge with Amex, just on principle. I wouldn't even have complained if they'd shipped it today so it'd get here tomorrow, but..grrrrr, think I need to go calm down.

On the phone. Got the e-mail with the tracking number last night (i.e. Thursday night) telling me that it had in fact shipped on Wednesday.

Oh, and my bitching to Apple Customer Service (well, my wife's bitching, she's better at it than me) about them sending it 2nd day when we'd paid for overnight had results - we ended up getting the overnight shipping fee refunded.
