    I know this is going to sound really childish and antsy, but I am. I'm quite giddy, as I just ordered my first mac (A 15" PB), and I can't wait to play with it.

    I ordered this Saturday afternoon. It was a stock model, so the est. ship time was within 24 hrs.
    After logging into my order sttaus page, though, I see that it says "est ship: on or before 8/2"
    And then add on the 2 more days for the shipping process.


    My question is: Is Apple's ordering system usually accurate in estimating shipping times? By the information I have here, am I correct in saying it is scheduled to be here Thursday, 8/4? Or is there a possibility it may be here Tues or Wed.?

    They usually are accurate, a lot of the times they even are ahead of their dates. My iBook was set to ship from Apple on 8/2, but it wound up shipping on the 28th, i'll be getting it come 8/3 at 10:30AM, you'll have yours no later than the middle of next week.

    Hey, you had the same ship date as me :)


    Here's crossing my fingers I see a Powerbook pull up within the next couple days!

    Do you have a fedex tracking number ?

    No...In fact, my order status just changed from "Processing" to "Preparing Shipment" within the past hour.

    Everything I've ever ordered direct from Apple.com has shown up well before the estimated arrival date, with the exception of pre-ordered hardware (which basically ships about the time they say it will). I'd be prepared for the possibility that it may arrive early, and plan accordingly.

    Just got the email saying it's been shipped, as a matter of fact.
    Got my tracking number, and it looks like it'll be here a day early...I'll be seeing my Powerbook on Wed.
