    I want to "be in possession" of my PowerBook by June 25, so that I qualify for the $100 education rebate... if I order online, how long does it usually take to ship? Will I get it in time? I only have about a week left. Would I be better off going into a store and purchasing my PB? Also, if I do that... can I get it customized (i.e. 128MB upgraded VRAM) in store? Thanks in advance.

    If it's a stock config, then it only takes a few days. A week at the most.

    Nope. Only a BTO via the online store.

    Mine took about 3 days to BTO, then 1 week to ship here in the UK.

    I ordered mine on the 12th(Sunday). It shipped late on the 15th(Wednesday), so didn't leave till the 16th (Thursday). Arrived in my city on the 18th (yesterday/Saturday), all the way from China. Scheduled for delivery on the 21st(Tuesday). Tried to pick it up yesterday but I wasn't able to. Going to try to get it tomorrow, if not I'll just wait till Tuesday.

    i ordered my powerbook thursday night over the 800 number. the rep told me i that i would get the $100 back because the order would ship before the 25th.

    from the rebate terms & conditions
    but from what i gather from the fine print the 30 day limit to get the rebate back to them starts when you order the item. not when you receive it.
