    Does anyone have any idea how long it would take for Apple to ship a built to order powerbook 15" if I were to order it today? I'm thinking about going to an apple store, but I dunno if they do custom builds. Anyone have any info on this?

    I got my brother to order mine yesterday from the online store and it said 5-7 working days

    EDIT: BTW it's 2-3 weeks waiting time for here in Australia. Really ridiculous. I'll get my powerbook that will be shipped from Tawian -> NY -> Australia quicker then the Taiwan -> Singapore -> Australia

    I got a BTO 12" PB. It was shipped direct from Taiwan within 3 days of the order going in... received it about 4 or 5 business days after the order went in.

    i dont think the apple stores do custom builds. i went in the other day interested in doing that (bc im getting the student discount and don't know how it's done online) and the only thing they can customize is the RAM. otherwise, you'll have to order it online.

    Edu Store Online

    go to www.apple.com/education

    If you're a college student, like me, then under higher education click "student" and keep going from there...I believe there is a "Buy Now" button on the next page.
