Obviously you're not a golfer.
post in this thread when you do please. i want to get a feel for when they are starting to arrive in the stores and being shipped, now that most stores seem to have gotten at least a few 15" machines.

i have my name on the list at Providence Place, i am hoping they get in this week. someone on another thread posted that they were told as early as Monday. here's hoping.

I have called every apple store in the bay area everyday since friday..

I keep getting a variety of answers.

The best answer I heard was, "we are hoping for monday"..

the worst answer I heard was, "They will not arrive until the week of November 6th"

YIKES...

I have not heard of anybody getting there 17 inch at a store or in the mail.

cheers

Weren't Apple suppose to start shipping the 17 incher next week? Are they known to ship sooner than estimated or is it that I smell a bit of BS here.

I smell BS too, because the 200 mb drive is a configure option and stores only carry stock models.. or so I thought? Please correct me if I am wrong someone! :)

I ordered mine the day they came out and it showed estimated ship by 0ct. 30th and delivery by nov 5. However it shipped on oct. 27 and estimated delivery is nov. 1 When I check the tracking status it's showing that it's at the local sort facility in Romulus which is about 10 miles from here, so I'm crossing my fingers that it gets here by early morning on monday :D

EDIT: Sorry I didn't read the title fully. I've ordered the 15'' model. Good luck to you all who're going for the 17'' I need to carry mine to college everyday and it's just too big for me.

I'm not sure about this report, but I do think the stores carry more than just stock models.

I bought my 15" MBP the day the the local store got them and I got one with 2gig RAM and the 7200rpm drive. And I think those were configure options also.

I ordered the 17" C2D late on the 24th. (Spent the whole day deciding between the glossy and matte. :) )

So my estimate ship date is Nov 7 with delivery on the Nov 13. I hope it goes earlier!

And what did you decide?

Waiting for a stock (which means matte) 17" here, ordered first day, estimated shipping 7th, estimated delivery 15th. (I'm in Norway)

Sounds like Nov 7 will be a big day in Shanghai! I hope these start trickling out earlier.

After going back to the Apple store that evening and looking at the screens, I decided the glossy will work for me for what I need and the light conditions I work in. I've had a Sager with a 17" glossy for about a year and half now (my linux "laptop") and I like that screen, but it's a little too glossy sometimes. The Apple glossy is somewhere in between my MBP (matte) and the Sager. Hopefully this new C2D will help me retire the sager and save my back from carrying around 2 computers.

On waiting list at Topanga (Canoga Park, CA) store since release on Tuesday (stock 17"). Hopefully, it'll show up in next few days (tomorrow, pls?). Good to see some other news about 17" ship/delivery times. They're received (and sold out of) a few 15" MBP C2Ds.

I've had to wait for new models before (think it was a month for original TiBook, maybe more for Wallstreet), but this is the hardest... :)

Upgrading from 17" PB, 1.67, 1440 display, 2GB RAM, upgraded optical (2.4x DL) (March, 2005)

Quick question: When you look at your order details on the Apple website does "Fast Ship (EMEA)" mean the express service?
I was never given an option for express delivery when I paid my money!
Also has anyone's bank account been debited for the purchase? I've heard that's the sure fire way that it's being shipped immanently!
