    I am still not sure if I'll be purchasing a Mac, but I will need it for September. It would be a 15" Powerbook if I got one. How long would it take to get to me?

    BTO: 5-10 days

    Standard: 3-7 days

    Power books and iBooks are all Apple seems to even be able to deliver right now. so you should be fine for September if you order within a month. If you are ordering a G5 however, I would not count on it being there by September :mad:

    It depends on where you live. I live on Long Island and i ordered a 15" 1.5, 512 ram, 5400 hd, combo drive, 128 vram and it took about 3 days. I ordered on a tuesday night around 9-10 pm est and i recieved it fri at like 8 in the morning. I found their shipping to be excellent considering it came from japan. But i had free seond day air, i don't know if they have that promotion still.

    PB's are fine with shipping, its all Apple has, everything else Apple has is being revised and is taking forever to ship. Apple really needs to improve their supply chain :rolleyes:

    Are you sure it came from Japan? Sounds a bit odd, usually they come from Taiwan.
