    I am amazed at the delivery times. I ordered from apple and requested the free delivery option on Saturday. The thing arrived TODAY! and all the way from Taiwan! and I almost even caved in a pay for the 2day delivery option! This is my second time ordering directly from apple and both have arrived within 3 days of shipping!

    I know how u feel. I had to get a replacement battery for my first TiBook. When I called Apple they told me 3-5 days for delivery...

    the thing showed up the very next morning! :eek:


    bottom line...Apple may take forever to get new orders out on new hardware...but when they have their stuff in stock...they are quite nice! ;)

    ha, I've ended up waiting a couple weeks before - that is if they don't loose the shipment (it was actually stolen).

    That some good turn around time, I'd consider you very lucky.

    ha, fedex and apple discussed it for a couple of weeks making sure it was truly stolen and then decided to build and ship me a replacement. It ended up being 6 weeks before I got my machine.

    Not fun :mad:

    My orders have arrived when promised, that is why Apple gets good results on customer surveys. Problems can occur r/t backorder items!

    Ahh the lovely MacMall said that my computer was 3 weeks from being in stock so I cancelled it and drove to OR to buy one retail. Then MacMall tells me that I can't cancel it now, cause it just shipped. The machine shows up two and half weeks later and I refuse the shipment since I now own one and I had cancelled this order. Well they charged me for the RAM, installation, shipping, and everything but the machine itself...a month later and still no resolution. aaaarrrrgh!
