    Well, exactly two weeks is Jan 29th. What Steve said is probably just an estimate though. (Sometime around late Jan/early Feb) Stuff has usually come earlier than expected in the past.

    EDIT: Opps, beat me to it.

    I agree, my best guess is that week and not just that certain day.

    The first orders on the stock model are preparing for shipment already, so I imagine they might arrive this week.

    Well whenever they make it to the Apple Store near me (Easton) let me know because I must see one of these in person!

    Macbook air shipping date

    I bought my macbook air (stock model) on wedensday the 16th. On my order status, my ship by date is the 7th. Up untill today my status was package not ready to ship. However today it was changed to prepared for shipment. I am assuming that it will be shipped out early this week.

    I was wodering if other people have the same prepared for shippment status and is there anyone who has pre-ordered other notebooks from apple and know how long it will take for the notebook to be shipped out after recieving the prepared for shipment status.

    Any news on the optional external DVD burner for the MacBook Air.
    Just wondering if the Apple stores will be selling it as a stand alone accessory.

    I wouldn't mind buying just the Apple external DVD burner

    Yes, from my understanding you will be able to buy it as a stand alone accessory.

    I thought I had heard that it will only work with the MBA, but I'm not 100% sure. I had the same conversation with a friend who only has a combodrive MB. It would be a sweet little upgrade...

    Anyone know for sure?

    yeah that would be interesting for a combodrive Macbook... i'd think i'd be weird if those things only ran on a MBA...

    Macbook minus

    So how about if you then _remove_ the combodrive, and keep the external drive on your desk. How much weight would you save on the Macbook?

    It has always bugged me that the 5 pound Macbook is only 0.4 pounds lighter than the Pro. If removing the optical drive saves you another half pound, it could fill a nice niche at 4.x pounds...like my 12 inch G4.

    Well they can't sell them till after Feb. 6...because that means the pre-orders were pointless...if you can get them the 29, I would have just waited and not order it on Jan 15...that wouldn't be fair!!!

    This is so stupid. I decided to call an Apple store today that is close to me. Here is how the conversation went:

    Me: Hi there, when will the MacBook Air be in stock?
    Him: 2 weeks.
    Me: Well I called a week ago and another person told me 2 weeks, so that leaves a week or so.
    Him: Well it will be in stock in 2 weeks.
    Me: So everytime I call you guys are going to add 2 weeks onto the time?
    Him: Yes


    WOW! These guys either can't do subtraction or something is wrongggg. Boo! Bring me my MBA!

    You clearly haven't been ordering Apple products for very many years :rolleyes:
    On two different occasions, I've cancelled my online order that was placed on the day of an announcement because the local Apple Store got them in stock before my online order even shipped, much less arrived.

    I figured out the real reason they are not in stores yet even though they have shipped to people who ordered online.

    SECURITY

    Went to the Apple store today and noticed something. All the Macs had a security device pluged into the ETHERNET to keep people from walking off with them. Since the MBA does not have an ETHERNET port they can't put them out!!!! :D

    P.S. Yeah I know they could secure it the same way they do iPods and such, but still think it was funny when I noticed that....
