    Delivery delays

    I also ordered a 2.4 GH system within approx. the first week of release, and my system has still not been shipped. This is a warning to others - do not take the delivery time estimate seriously! When I ordered my computer - on June 14 - the est. shipping time was 3-5 days (a stock system with a 4 GB RAM upgrade). The computer delivery estimate has now been delayed until mid July. I apparently made a big mistake in requesting the RAM upgrade - or at least that's what I've been told is causing the delay.

    Damn, sorry, they must've used it all in mine ;)

    It's a shame the shipping time has increased so much. I'm sure it's probably just supply/demand issues, but it does make you wonder.

    I ordered one on the day of rls but they wanted me to wait til the 19th of June so I just popped along to the Bull Ring Apple store and got one there instead. Then my online one arrived last week, lol.

    Sometimes here mostly there
    I ordered mine MBP 2.4GHz on June 11th. Just got the mail from apple that it had been shipped. It takes waaay to long. Im pissed frankly speaking cos when I ordered it was supposed to be 1-3 days. Now Im leaving to Europe for a month on Sunday so I wont have it till the end of July...

    i know people have talked about this, but i'm wondering if people who ordered glossy screens have had more shipping delays. i know i have. anyone have information on this--or perhaps talked to apple directly about it? thanks!

    Glossy is CTO, matte is not. What more explanation do you need? :apple:

    What I don't understand about that is that if indeed glossy causes the delay why doesn't Apple mention this? In the "Configure your mac" page if you choose the 7200RPM HD it changes the shipping estimate to 7-10days from 5-7days, change the screen from matte to glossy and the shipping estimate is the same. As you can see from my siggie i've been waiting since the 17th for mbp and it's getting quite annoying.

    Hmm, I think it may be your HD requirement. Here's been my experience with ordering my 2.2 Glossy:

    #1: Ordered June 11th - Shipped June 16th - Arrived June 18th.

    *Defective* - Sent Back June 26th - Arrived June 29th

    #2: Scheduled To Ship Between July 2nd and 5th - Sheduled To Arrive July 5th and 10th

    Ordered my 2.4 SR MPB matte, upgraded to 7200 on June 5th and nothing so far and yes the upgraded hard drive (7200) does add delivery time, but there are others that ordered the same thing after me and have already received their computers. As far as I can see, there really doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason in the shipping process.
