    Cool
    Do you remember when it shipped out for ya?:)

    May have to take a day off, but only if it will be here tommrow(which it should because I did 2 day shipping, and it shipped on the 12th) But I went to fedx.com and tracked it, and last scanned looked to be in Tawain somewhere:(

    it shipped thursday

    my ibook shipped thursday, it left from taiwan, i did free ground shipping and it took me like thursday-monday, I guess its cuz i ordered as early as possible. so thats like the morning of the third business day. don't watch the tracking too much, it only updates once a day i think

    Shafted in the UK

    I ordered within an hour of release and if I'm luckt it might arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. 13-14 days. What a pain. All due to alleged problems with flights. I am most unhappy :(

    Ordered from ClubMac.com, got it next day

    I just ordered my iBook 12.1" 800MHz w/Combo Drive from ClubMac.com on Monday, and got it the next day (granted, FedEx shipping was $45). I had originally put in an order on the Apple Store last Friday, but cancelled it after I realized that buying from a reseller like ClubMac.com or MacMall.com I got an even better deal than using Apple's Student Developer discount (when you factor in the $120 savings in sales tax and the 256MB extra RAM ClubMac threw in for $40).

    As for my impressions, coming from the PC world:

    The iBook is one SWEET machine. It's even smaller and lighter than I had expected, and it runs OSX 10.2 faaaaaast. Running Chimera 0.6, I can definitely say that my browsing is at least as fast as IE6 on my PC - except it looks 10x better, what with the font smoothing and all....

    I'm serious, this is the best $1333 I ever spent. If you're thinking about buying one - I would recommend buying it RIGHT NOW! The sooner you buy it, the better value it'll be since they just upgraded the line, and the sooner you can enjoy it :D

    i got mine yesterday and i've been playing with it ever since,

    its real neat, very speedy and responsive,

    been playing with all the settings etc...

    i LIKE the new video card, runs jedi knight II fine,

    the 800 mhz isnt that big of a step but its plenty

    all in all im very happy with my new ibook + ipod.

    a great combo

    Damn You All

    I just got off the phone to Apple. My iBook should arrive in Luxemburg (why?) this evening. So I might get it on Monday or Tuesday next week. I can't stand the wait :(
