    It is stuck in Indianapolis right now with a shipping status of "Clearance Delay." Anyone else have this message showing up in their fedex tracking info?

    it is almost here! i called apple and they verified this is completely normal and i will receive my powerbook tomorrow per the fedex estimated ship date. i hope so. i want my powerbook. ;)

    Nothing worse than sitting and waiting. Oh but the feeling when it gets there and you open that box. MMmmmmmmm. Love it.

    Just sit and wait or watch a movie to get your mind of it.

    Could be worse, your ship date could be November 22nd like mine.

    tekmoe, or anyone else who can answer, I just order my powerbook on Sunday and it's currently in "sent to manufacturing" with an estimated ship date of Oct. 27th. What was your estimated shipping time from FedEx once it left the warehouse? I'm EXTREMELY ANXIOUS and was hoping I would have it by the end of the week, but I'm beginning to give up hope. :(

    i ordered 20 minutes after the apple store came back up last wednesday. the estimated ship date said on or before 10/25 which would be today. my order changed to shipped on saturday morning which was about 4 days ahead of schedule. after i received the tracking number, the fedex estimated delivery date has been set for 10/26 10:30 AM. it has not changed and i am hoping it does not change either. if it holds true, i will have my 17" tomorrow morning!!!

    what did you order?

    Thanks for the info. I've ordered (my first Mac!!) a 15" powerbook with a 100GB 7200rpm drive with an extra Crucial 1GB RAM, hopefully all on its way soon! Good luck to receiving your new powerbook tomorrow. p.s. I went to the local Apple Store over the weekend, and the new HD screens on the 17" are unbelievable!! Enjoy!
