    Well i ordered my MacBook last Sunday (20th) and it was scheduled to ship yesterday, which changed to the 4th Sep, then the 29th Aug, and is now back at the 24th and has still not shipped.

    Delivery is apparently the 5th Sep, but i'm not holding out on that at all :(

    I ordered mine on the 24th and it's supposed to ship on the 5th. But my iPod shipped about 5 days early (made it from China to the US in a day?!?!) so I have hope for my MacBook. I said screw waiting for Merom, I don't need it, but I do need a Mac now, so there we go.

    That would be great if that happened to me too. My mbp has shipped with a company called Kuhne & Nagel Spedition s.a r which I have never heard of but after some digging seem to be a german company which is strange since i live in the UK.

    Has anyone else had their computer ship with this company?

    I saw all the shipment delays had by other users, so I drove the 2 hours to my nearest Apple store and bought one there. I needed it for school and definitely couldn't risk being delayed 2+ weeks.

    Good luck to you all, though.

    K & N deal with the Apple stuff from Taipei to Eindhoven, as it's typically there that it's handed over to TNT.

    Well, my iPod video that I got along with my Macbook shipped today and is coming on Thursday. My Macbook is still on a September 5th ship date so I still have a small glimmer of hope for Merom :)

    i ordered mine aug 16th and it was delayed till the 29th, then delayed again till the 31st.

    Apple gave me 50 dollars back on my credit card and was going to make it next day shipping but couldn't because their computer system won't let one order have two types of shipping (the ipod nano has already been shipped and just arrived today)

    yeah I've seen others say this issue (can't have 2 types of shipping)... who needs 2 types of shipping? If the ipod is already at my house it doesn't need to be shipped.. so just change the shipping for the WHOLE order. :eek:

    Hmmm, I wonder if it's possible that the MacBook could get Merom? September 5th seems to be a reoccuring date.

    Black MB

    I ordered my black mb with a 1gb memory upgrade and a 100gb hard drive upgrade on August 17th. On the date of purchase Apple said they would ship it by the 24th. Then they changed the shipment day to the 31st. I called and bitched them out about it and they gave me $50. Today is the 31st and there are still no signs that it has shipped. I know there is a high demand, but this is getting to be ridiculous.

    So I ordered my macbook on the 25th of August. I had a charge placed on my credit card for the total that day... actually it was a hold on the funds.. the actual charge didn't come through yet ("outstanding authorization"). I just happened to be checking my credit card tonight (online) and there is currently NO charge from apple, and my outstanding authorizations are 0. Uhhh... the store still shows my macbook on time.

    I wondered about that myself. If mine comes with Merom, great. If it ships with Yonah, great. I don't care, I just want my BlackBook! :)
