    I just ordered my second powerbook yesterday. Bought a 12" refurb for $1249. I'm excited, but was wondering how long it normally took apple to process the order and ship the item. The Titanium I own was purchased from the local Apple Store. I've always been hesitant to order from the online store because I've heard stories of long delays.

    Thanks for any responses.

    It's a crapshoot. A guy at work got his system in about a week. A friend of mine had to wait a month. If the refurb is in stock, it's likely to take less time than a custom build.

    Good luck!

    I ordered a BTO 15" 1.25 PB from the online store on 3-16 and received it on 3-22. Quite speedy....

    And I understand the refurbs aren't even listed unless they are actually in if you order one it should be shipped quickly. If you can, specify any delivery EXCEPT Fedex Ground....
