    iJon probably knows this, because his parents got a shipping notification for their store.

    Yeah, I just saw the MacNN and came here. Hooray, I can't believe it, but this is good news.

    Great, now they can sell more of them that they don't have.

    My order date hasn't changed. Still skeptical of them getting to consumers anytime soon.

    Correct

    I spent a day at the orlando millennia apple store on thursday and the saleslady I flirted with said that they were shipping back the non-functioning unit and receiving a real-working model of the 17inch pb on monday or tuesday. The only reason she told me I think was because she wanted me; she kind of whispered it to me passionately. I mean not that it's a big secret but you wouldn't just tell anyone that. ;) Right???

    Dear B -

    Perhaps it's not a 'big secret' but remember it's your secret and you don't have to tell anyone about it until you're good and ready. My uncle Benny had a 'big secret' too.

    Some women are just naturally drawn to the kind of men who can spend a whole day in a retail store. But even though she's a woman, it doesn't mean she doesn't have feelings too.

    Tell her your 'big secret' when it's appropriate, but do it before she gets too involved with you and gets her poor heart broken.

    - Abby

    great advice. If she gets higher up on the apple command line,
    dont dump her. ;). Or if she's hot....

    Got to love them apple girls. The apple store near me is better than hooters! :D I have one that I may ask out as well. She didnt whisper passionately in my ear, however. 15% off...and lets not forget Christmas and my birthday.:D

    Y am I sitting here typing when I can be there asking?

    Just a comment - it's awfully cruel of them to ship on a saturday when the FedEx tracking information won't be up until Monday.

    I'm so excited I can barely stand it. Think Cocker Spaniel when their owner gets home...

    I just checked the status of my order, and it was changed from on or before 26 March to 'OPEN"!! Sounds promising, i guess.

    Amazon used to say releasing on the 15th. Today it says shipping within 2-3 days!! They must have a bunch of them. So perhaps early orders will be shipped next week? I hope.
