Better be this Friday coming! I just dont understand why it takes so long if I ordered mine on the 20th & you guys order later then me but get to receive it any day now .
Anyway let me know when you receive your PB guys!
I think im in the same boat as you! Now you got me going! no sleep for me tonight (will be on the net in search for more add ons to my new PB LOL )aussie_geek said:Reuven,
ps - tonight maybe a sleepless one....
aussie_geek said:Star track express says it is to be delivered tomorrow.
Have you got your 'item shipped' email notification yet?
I got an e-mail from AppleCentre Chatswood today and they said they would start delivering 12" combo drive systems (the ones I was enquiring about) this afternoon. So it looks like the new PowerBooks have hit Sydney as of today, at least.jKmxxx said:I hear that some deliveres are around 2pm in Melbourne. I hope I get my PB this week.

Ordered on the 20th April and payed for then.. was done online via the apple store. Got the 80Gig 5400rpm drive in the PB. Shipped from apple in sydney on friday 30th april and got to me, monday 3rd mayaswitcher said:When did you order? (and pay?)
Was it through Apple Australia (Phone/Net)?
WHat customs bits?
Do you have a 128 VRAM card or 64 ?aussie_geek said:hey all,
The powerbook arrived today at 3:57 pm! Absolutely amazing!! There are no design flaws - no dead pixels, no warped lid, latch works fine, no uneven illumination etc etc. It seems that Apple has ironed out all the bugs. I am so happy I prolonged the purchase for this model.
I performed an xbench test and it scored 110 with 512Mb ram out of the box.
Well done apple - you've made my day (again) considering it is 1 week from order to delivery.
hope you all get yours soon,
