    I ordered a 17"MBP on April 24th and got an email saying my new delivery daet would be May 12-18 instead of this week... Last time I ordered a 15" MBP this happened and I ended up waiting for a speed bump. anyone else having delays?

    Still waiting..

    I ordered a
    matte
    17"
    2.93Ghz
    4gig RAM
    320 Gig 5400 HD
    April 8
    Still waiting....still listed as processing.
    Bought my Mac through a reseller. I have read up on the delay on a lot of forums, some blame going through a reseller, some blame the matte screen option or the processor. One way we can bide our time is maybe to post our order specifics and see if we can pass time guessing what's up.
    If you haven't received your MBP, please post your order details and maybe we can narrow it down!
    My reseller has called and emailed and followed through on everything and can't get an answer...he takes care of all my Macs so I know he's a great guy and is doing everything he can for me. They just keep telling him it's being processed and will ship soon.:confused:

    DDD - your configuration shows on the Apple Store as shipping in 7 - 10 days.

    I think your reseller may have dropped the ball and is giving Apple the blame.

    Just a thought.

    Repost from a previous thread.

    April 24th. CTO 17" MBP 2.93Ghz, Glossy. 320GB 7200rpm. iWork.
    At first it said delivered by May 4th. The status I saw was "Prepared for Shipment" But now it seems like it's taking another week before it ships out. May 12th.

    Ships: 3 - 5 business days
    Delivers: May 6 - May 12

    Still waiting. My Status Widget says: 8 days. Sigh.

    Update: 2:31AM Pacific time. Finally. It says Shipped!! FED-Ex tracking # given. YAY!!! Delivered by May 7th.

    Should be ordering mine soon. What cases are you guys using? I used to have a STM Rebound for my 15", looking for something similar.

    when did you order your mbp Zeno?

    it says it takes 7-10 business days to build a CTO, and since yours is matte + upgraded harddrive, it may take a little longer. since i hear they custom build each matte order and manufactured in china

    I ordered mines on the 4th and no word too, I got matte + 7200 rpm + iwork and was slighty expecting a short delay. Even though I live 20 minutes away from the cupertino :apple: building and 120 minutes from the elk grove one, wish it would come sooner

    I ordered the night of April 30. On May 6 the status was changed to prepared for shipment. Now how long will my computer be prepared for shipment? How long did it take for your status to change from prepared to shipped?

    My status has been "Not yet shipped" for as long as I could remember. So I can't help you there.

    I ordered MBP 17" at late January and didn't get it yet. Reseller told me that it should be shipped at the middle of May. And they said that it is Apple's pending problem.

    You might want to cancel that order and purchase though a different seller. 5 months is quite a long time bud!
