    Can anyone give me a yes or no....I mean if you ordered it, what does it say under "order stats"


    The reason I think it is is....this was on Apple Bussiness Store

    It still says February on the store. My guess is they started shipping pre-orders and as February is two days away, it will be shipping this week if or next if you order now.

    I saw someone with a ship date of Feb. 24. I wouldn't be surprised, businesses always say "shipping in ___" and then they don't ship till practically the last day of the month. Clever.

    Online store has changed from Feb to 3-4 weeks. Interesting wordplay given 3-4 weeks is STILL February.

    3-4 weeks is basically the end of February! I guess we'll have to see who starts getting their Airport Extemes.

    I'm guessing that they have started shipping pre-orders and with the volume of them anyone who orders now is looking at 3-4 weeks and even some people who ordered after the annoucement but not until a week or ten days ago might still be waiting till the 3rd week of February.

    So what should be the fastest way of getting one? Ordering on-line or in person at a brick-and-mortar apple store?

    I haven't received any emails yet from the U.S. store regarding my order, but I did notice that the ship time has changed from February to "2-3 weeks".

    No, even worse. I am in Australia.

    I was kinda surprised because we aussies are always the last to get anything. I ordered on the day it was announced :)
