No, this is not as bad as the headline might seem. I ordered a MacBook Pro 13" yesterday (link: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-MacBook...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1271790323&sr=8-1) from Amazon. At that time, it said that they were out of stock, but would have more by 4/22. I placed my order and got a delivery date of next Monday (4/26 with a Prime trial and next-day air for $3.99). To my pleasant surprise, Amazon just e-mailed saying that the unit has shipped and will arrive TOMORROW!! Moral of the story is, just order the damn laptop and you just might be pleasantly surprised with the time it takes to reach you.
