    I just read on the Apple Discussions Forums that someone said that there MBA was "Prepared for Shipment". Just checking to see if this is true ? I hope they will be in the stores by next week.

    Just checked mine..
    "prepared for shipment as well"
    however I don't know what it said before that as I never checked it..
    I would think that if they had a bunch out for display at macworld...more than likely the stock was being prepared, if not already prepared at that time.
    Hopefully they will be shipping soon!

    mine says "not yet shipped"

    but i ordered the 1.8 with SSD, and ordered it at about midnight, not right after the keynote


    ... please post your order time / config if your's says "repaired for shipment"


    ... hopfully this means mine will be in that state by tomorrow afternoon :)

    "Thank you for shopping at the Apple Online Store
    Apple's Online and phone Order Status services are temporarily unavailable due to a scheduled upgrade to our systems.

    We apologize for any inconvenience."

    I got the 1.6/80GB model.

    Order placed at 1/15 1:09pm MST, mine also shows "Prepared for Shipment".

    Any guesses where these are shipping from? SE Asia?

    Mine is Prepared as well. Ordered 7:16 PM Pacific on Tuesday. 1.6/80 gig model.

    Awesome that Apple is getting them out quicker than expected. Hope the Apple TV update will be out sooner as well.

    mine also said not yet shipped, now prepared for shipment!

    would be great if these shipped sooner than the expected 2-3 weeks!

    If they're prepared I can't see Apple sitting on them for two weeks! That would suck:eek:

    I emailed Amazon to see what the update is with them. Maybe by tomorrow Amazon will have something.
