    Star track express says it is to be delivered tomorrow.

    Have you got your 'item shipped' email notification yet?

    I have been told that my PB will arrive either this Friday or the following Friday.

    Better be this Friday coming! I just dont understand why it takes so long if I ordered mine on the 20th & you guys order later then me but get to receive it any day now :rolleyes: :confused: .

    Anyway let me know when you receive your PB guys!

    Cheers,

    Reuven,

    Ring DJ's tomorrow. I bet it'll be there. It seems like apple must have shipped all of the last few weeks orders this weekend in one batch. Also remember that you ordered yours thru a store so they may not have been too quick about ordering the Powerbook in the first place :( . I will definately let you know when mine arrives. I'll do a review of the beast tomorrow.

    :eek: :eek:

    ps - tonight maybe a sleepless one.... :p

    I am buying through Macmall and they didn't order it until last Tuesday (I put done $1500 down payment on the Saturday of Anzac long weekend) so its only been in the system a week... :(

    They also said they would probably only get a days headsup, but the impression I got was that they wouldn't let me know until it actually arrived in the store and got processed... :eek:

    So I am in the dark.

    Good news is that my most excellent BLACK screensavRz (www.radtech.us) arrived yesterday, and my Jaz J1321 portable speakers (cheap but superior to the internals peakers and very portable - www.eyo.com.au) arrived today.

    I got an e-mail from AppleCentre Chatswood today and they said they would start delivering 12" combo drive systems (the ones I was enquiring about) this afternoon. So it looks like the new PowerBooks have hit Sydney as of today, at least.

    Powerbook Arrived..

    hey all,

    The powerbook arrived today at 3:57 pm! :D :D :D Absolutely amazing!! There are no design flaws - no dead pixels, no warped lid, latch works fine, no uneven illumination etc etc. It seems that Apple has ironed out all the bugs. I am so happy I prolonged the purchase for this model.

    I performed an xbench test and it scored 133 with 512Mb ram out of the box.

    Well done apple - you've made my day (again) considering it is 1 week from order to delivery.

    hope you all get yours soon, ;)
