How many think Apple will ship all orders in Nov?

    I think it is BS.

    Look at the posts in various threads. It is the middle of the month and there are like 10 or twelve people that have their quad cores.

    There is no way they will make the end of the month. They are still filling orders from October.

    Less than 10 business days left in the month if you count holidays, this blows.

    I called Apple with the same concern. My i7 was ordered on Nov 4th. I complained that the status says Not yet shipped and I highly doubted I would be getting my i7 before December based on the current rate of shipment.
    She said... 'Well, we have started the transaction from your Credit Card, usually its 3 days from the day of the pending transaction and then it ships. So she couldnt guarantee anything, but said she thinks it should ship tomorrow or Monday based on the charge on my CC.
    Not as if that means anything, it wont make any difference until I get that damn machine in my house!

    I don't think it's entirely a coincidence that the quad-cores started shipping almost the same time 10.6.2 was released. I'd bet the floodgates are open and shipping will be moving very fast now.

    As has been said many times before, people posting here are not necessarily representative of the outside world. Apple appears to be shipping hundreds, if not thousands, of Quad-Cores every day.

    Also, Apple states, "Ships November," not delivers November.

    Keep the faith, I think you will be pleasantly surprised :)

    On my order it says ships November

    That means it at the very latest ships Nov 30.

    If you look at all the threads, there are many people that ordered in October still waiting for theirs to ship.

    If you extrapolate that, given that there is only less than 10 business days left in November, then mine will not ship in November.

    That is just BS - The fact that it is now mid-november and Apple cannot give us a ship date like 3-5 days? WTF

    Unless the have something to hide like delays. Mark my words:

    Nov. 30

    Press Release

    Shares of Apple (NSDQ:AAPL) Computer fell more than 5 percent Tuesday, a day after the company announced a delay in the release of the next-generation iMac.

    I got my quad yesterday, so this topic isn't as relevent for me. But Apple is certainly shipping quad in Nov.

    Like I said, you probably ordered on October 20th

    So there is no way anyone that ordered in November will get theirs before the end of the month at this rate.

    Have some patience man. Apple was clearly waiting on the final build of 10.6.2. After it was released, they started pouring out.

    Your "extrapolation" relies on an assumption that Apple's shipping rate cannot exceed the order rate.

    This is unfounded.

    Also, I would guess the proportion of orders taken in that one week in October, compared to this week, is vastly larger.

    Relax dude. They just started shipping the quad-cores. Can you give Apple a few days or a week to catch up? You will get your computer before the end of the month...

    I waited until November 10th to order, still says it ships in November. I'm not worried, I think they'll clear the entire back order by the end of the month.

    Also its very unlikely thanksgiving will have a significant impact on the shipping date, since it is an American holiday and our machines are assembled and shipped from China.

    well I ordering on Nov 6 so any date that it ships earlier than Nov 30th is a bonus for me! I have expedited shipping which is 3 days max, so the latest I can possibly get my computer is Dec 3rd. So i'm going to wait till Dec 4th before I start jumping up and down, and just trust that when Apple says it will ship in Nov it will ship in Nov.

    They will get everything shipped by black Friday or cyber Monday. Otherwise people would cancel there order and reorder for much less.
