    I'm wondering if anyone else is having a similar experience....

    I ordered a Mac mini with 512 K RAM and airport extreme on January 14, 2005. According to the Order Status the equipment would ship on or before February 14, 2005. On February 8, 2005 I checked the Order Status to discover the equipment was now scheduled to ship on March 10, 2005.


    I contacted the Apple store using Apple's online request form and the response was they were experiencing 'manufacturing delays'.

    So I am wondering if my particular configuration was the hold it Airport Extreme? More Ram, or the combination.

    Anyone else?

    I guess "none of the above;" none of those components are special to the mini. When they say "manufacturing delays" in regards to the mini I'd take that to mean they are referencing the mini itself. A stock mini with no adjustments shows an "Estimated Ship: 2-3 weeks" on the Apple web page.

    Nothing you can do. The mini is just in short supply.

    this is not exactly true. the BT/APE module is special to the mini from what i understant. that being said, all minis are experiencing delays (i know mine sure is :( ). you should have gotten an email about any delays from apple, though. weird that this is the first you heard of it. :confused:

    My Mac mini order is the following:

    Mac mini 1.42 GHz
    80 GB HD
    512 MB RAM
    BT module
    BT Keyboard & Mouse
    Keyspan Express Remote
    DVI to Video adapter

    I ordered it the day after the Keynote, and estimated shipping date was "on or before 28-01"
    Up until 07-02 the estimated shipping date remained "on or before 28-01"....

    Suddenly it shipped on 08-02, and today (09-02) I actually got it!
    (except for the DVI to Video adapter.... :( )

    But, it really is worth waiting for!

    I just ordered a 1.42 GHz / 512 MB / AE & BT cards / Combo Drive last night. Checking on Apple's site it says it should ship on or before 03-03-05.
