    Apple can seemingly do miracles, but I don't believe that they could ship me something before Christmas.

    Basically, on the right side of the site, there's a little something that asks if you need a product from the Apple Store by Christmas. And it is a bit late for that.

    Well, I guess it is never too early to start shopping for next year...:rolleyes:

    Well, it does say if you order from December 15th to 18th. So it's not false advertising or anything, but it is a bit out of date.

    What do they mean, "by December 15th-18th"? Is that just to cover their asses, say you order on the 17th and they don't get it to you in time, they can say the deadline ended up being the 15th? Otherwise why not just say "order before the 18th"?

    Oh, when you said "the site" I thought you referring to the Apple Store site. :eek:

    Ah, understandable. I thought that the "Site and Forum Feedback" thread would explain that I was referencing MacRumors, but I guess I should have clarified it. Whoops.

    No; if you use express shipping, you can order on the 18th, but if you have custom-made or engraved machines with slow shipping, probably need to order on the 15th...
