has anyone elses Mac Pro ship date been delayed? Mine was supposed to ship yesterday, yesterday night i got an email from apple stating that my order would not be shipped until the 23rd... 8 more days of waiting. Could this be because i live in Canada? If i knew the wait was gonna be so long I would have added the airport extreme. The only changes i made to the stock config was 160gb hdd and bluetooth.

At least your ship date is in the near future....mine is Sept. 5th and it should arrive by Sept. 12th...now that is a long wait....however, no, my ship date has not been delayed at all, yet, *knocks on wood*

Could it be the Merom update? Wishful thinking on my part.
No! The OP is waiting for his Macpro. Those have Woodcrest, you will never see a Merom in a Macpro.

You're probably thinking "Mac BOOK pro"

I'm ordering the exact same system today. They're quoting 2-4 business days on the Canadian site. Have you tried calling them to add the Airport Extreme instead?

I got my 3Ghz Mac Pro yesterday, it shipped on Saturday. I live outside of Toronto. I know I didn't order Bluetooth because it was an added delay. I ordered it last Tuesday. Hope this helps?

My config was 3ghz, 2x SuperDrives, 2gb RAM and then to save shipping time I placed another order for extra RAM, HD's, vid card.

I guess being single is a good thing! It's my dog and I:) As long as Maggie still gets her dog chow, treats and a walk, she's fine with my toys:p

EDIT: Off-topic, Danksi, I looked at your videos of the 'North Shore'! I used to race Downhill in Ontario & Quebec. Made it out to Whistler a couple of times.

I ordered mine (3.0ghZ, everything else stock) Last wednesday the 9th.
Still isn't here and neither is my damn ACD I ordered. I am in london ontario, so maybe mine was delayed too? I ordered it thru the campus computer store at my university though, and they haven't contacted me:mad:

Ordered mine on the 8th, it's been shipped through Sameday. I can't track it though since tracking is only available when the package is in Canada so I have no idea where it is right now... :confused:

woohoo!! so much for all that estimated ship date of august 23rd... it shipped yesterday!! only one day later than they first estimated!

my first mac ever is on it's way... i'm more excited than an 8 year old at christmas!

edit: on a side note, it's a little weird that the free Nano was shipped through Purolator and the Mac Pro through Same Day... oh well, i just can't wait to get my hands on it!

I dont understand why mine is est. to ship so much longer than alot of others.... it is only the 3.0ghz, BT and Airport and wireless kbd and mouse...didnt think it would take this long to ship out...

maybe it is the damn BT and Airport option....

my guess is it has a lot to do with the airport... i just added bluetooth, if i added airport along with it the shipping time jumps to 2-4 weeks :eek:... i'm just gonna have to run some cables.

it shipped yesterday and is expected to be here on the 24 :) even sooner than i initially expected before it was delayed 1 day.
