    Mine said preparing shipment all day, then I got an E-mail saying shipped about 2 hours ago. Checking the tracking number with fedex, they received it this morning many hours before the site updated to shipped. So even though yours may still say preparing shipment, fedex may already be shipping it out to you.

    While I am mad mine hasn't shipped yet(according to apple), many people are saying their copy is coming from Tennessee. Tennessee is about 10 hours away from me. So they can ship it tomorrow and still have it by the 29th.

    I ordered mine last Friday and its shipped out already. I live in upstate NY and mine's coming from Pennsylvania. Keep in mind that its being shipped 2nd day air if needed so even it the warehouse is 10 hours away, thats nothing with 2nd day air. Apple WILL make sure its shipped out. After that, its out of Apple's hands. So if it shipped out today and you don't get it Friday, then thats not Apple's fault.

    Well, that is why if I don't get mine by 6 pm on Friday, I am going down to the Apple store down the street and refusing delivery when it does arrive.

    My copy is still at the "Open" stage, despite the money being taken 5 days ago! I thought they took payment when it shipped?

    Depends how you paid. If you pay by credit card they take payment on shipment if you pay by debit card they can take payment on order I believe.

    My order is back to 'Open' it's been 'preparing order' a few times this week but each time just returns to 'Open'. Doesn't look like I'll be getting it on Friday which is a real pain 'cause I'm on holiday from Saturday and wanted to load it to my iBook before leaving. :(

    My status is still at "Order Recieved." But, then again, I did order last Friday, and paid by money order since I don't have a credit card. I guess I should look into getting one one of these day.

    I was just making sure that they were shipping California orders, from california, today. I was nervous that they might have been holding Californian orders until Thursday.

    Thanks for confirming.

    Still on "Preparing Order" here. No biggie, I won't actually get home until May 8 anyway.

    What is strange is that my copy is currently in the sort facility for my town as of earlier today, but the estimated ship date says Friday.

    It's possible the delivery date is a "it will be delivered no later than this date and time" kind of thing.

    Still "Preparing Shipment"...

    Nothing I order from Apple has ever arrived on time. I don't know whether Apple or FedEx is to blame, but it sure does hack me off. If I don't get it in the mail by Friday afternoon I'm going to my local reseller and keep my fingers crossed that they will have it. Then I probably won't ever order through Apple's website again.

    And yes, I pre-ordered within a couple of hours of Apple announcing it, so you'd think it would have shipped already.
