    Regulatory Agency Clearance Delay... it's been a day and a half now.... I'd really like to get my Mac Mini sometime this week. I'm in the US and it's shipping from Shenzheng. Fedex Express #710151677218. I've read some place that delays are normal, though. Anyone else ever had the smae problem?

    Unfortunately, this is pretty much standard procedure. What happens is that US Customs preclears Apple's stuff in China so that FedEx doesn't have to put the stuff in a customs warehouse in the US once it arrives. Generally speaking, it's only a day or two and then it starts moving again. Also, take into account the time zone and the fact that FedEx' updates aren't always timely. There's a small chance you might get it tomorrow, but my guess is that it'll be arriving on your doorstep on Monday.

    This happened to me with my PB and my iPod.
