    They don't have any 8GB configs of the new Air at the Apple store near me :mad: and I asked the "Genius" how long it would take to get to the store if I ordered one, she said 2 weeks! WTF

    Any of you all ordered from the Apple website yet? Received your new stuff yet? Or even got a tracking number/shipping estimate? The Apple website says "free FAST shipping" so... Not sure what to think here.

    $100 and a wait for some future-proofing is worth it I think.

    I just ordered a MacBook Air 13" with the 2.0 Ghz i7, 8GB, 256GB and estimated pickup date is July 21. I ordered it on July 12 at about 1am. Apparently, it's on the way to the apple store since yesterday.


    Also make sure to use the educational pricing, you get cheaper MacBook air and cheaper apple care and a free 100$ gift card for back to school. I did it and just put my old college, last time I went to school was 2008.

    Why do you think it is a good idea to recommend/admit illicit behavior on a public forum?

    Would you steal a Porsche and then write a letter to Car & Driver boasting about it?

    Maybe you would. Maybe you're stupid.

    I ordered on the 17th early evening configured with 8gb ram. Gift card shipped on the 18th, got notification computer shipped this morning 19th.

    Supposed to get on the 25th. Would've been faster, but I opted for regular shipping.

    6 days from BTO order on to arrival on my doorstep. Paid the $14 expedited shipping. Well worth it.

    I ordered mine last Saturday (July 14th). And it's now at Oakland, CA. Fortunately I live in the bay area so I might just get it tomorrow even though the estimated delivery says July 23rd.

    Oh, I didn't expedite the shipment.

    Yay! I can't wait!

    Once the item is in your cart, you have two shipping options:
    1) Ship to home address or pick up at an Apple store. I selected ship to home. 2) Standard shipping - free or 2-3 business day shipping - $14.
    I opted for the faster $14 shipping.

    You bought something, selected faster shipping, and completed checkout. What else do you think you should be able to do? What else have you been able to do after completing online purchases at other site?

    Only some countries allow for expedited shipping, if you live in the US then it shouldn't be a problem but for example me (I live in Hong Kong) the expedited shipping is not an option.
    Hope this helps.

    What? The guy already selected expedited shipping, so clearly his country allows it. He was asking what else he could do, i.e., a post-purchase change to make the product arrive even faster than expedited. Sounds like this is his first online purchase. :rolleyes:
