I bought a Mac Mini w/ a Superdrive on 1/25. In my confirmation e-mail from Apple, it states that it will be shipped on or before 2/24. I'd just like to know from any of you out there that have bought a Mini if it'll indeed take that long to ship, or are they sending them out sooner?

Thanks!

Apparently apple underestimated the success of the mini and didn't make nearly enough for the sudden craze of buyers. So I wouldn't be overly surprised if it takes as long as they're saying. You could always get lucky though.

I know UK shipping times aren't necessarily relevant to you guys in the US, but I ordered a Mac mini for my neighbour on February 2nd, and it arrived with her on February 4th! We were quoted the standard 3-4 weeks delivery.

Needless to say, I was stunned, especially given that Apple UK are usually very slow in shipping new products.

Apple always "underestimates" the demand. :rolleyes:

I, too, have ordered a Mac mini, a 1.42 w/Superdrive. I just got an email from Apple saying that shipping has been delayed to March 9. :mad:

mine has been "on or before 1/3/05" since i ordered it over aweek ago

ive ordered a 1.42/80gb/512/airport/bluetooth/superdrive with wireless keyboard/mouse, some soundsticks and a 1gb shuffle, and i expect it will take as long as it says.

dont mind though as i expected a long wait all along.

bye

Looks like things are at least headed in the right direction. I see that the wait times have dropped from 3-4 weeks down to 2-3 weeks for new orders on the Apple Store this morning.

I ordered mine on the 5th February and its showing on or before March 7th. I really do hope though that Apple get it out before then, its not much fun using an old smashed up PC. :(

For me its a new OS since iam on XP & Jag, new ilife05 since i dont have gargeband or the newer updates, 2 Free games. The way i see it iam paying about $250 for a new machine that comes with a warranty,proven over and over top end G4 design :rolleyes: in a package smaller then anything out in the PC world without the constant viruses,updates and quircks. Plus look at how green it is. Max power usage is 85 watts that means ill be averaging about 40 watts. It would be easy for Apple to throw in a 64 bit video and then this is a world beater Bar none. Anyone tell im just a little excited. :)

But have you upgraded the cpu? ;) 1.5, 1.6 ;)
no i wish, but i would never dare take a soldering iron to my mini! maybe if it was possible thru the software or something... but before this i had a 700mhz G3 iBook as my main computer. so the jump is quite nice, but with 256mb memory i didn't realize how you can barely use the computer with 256 i mean it should be against the law to come with 256mb for a mac..

Ordered 2/6/05 expect delivery 3/8/05....

Anyone else got a 1 month lead time?

Also how much of a difference do you think will I notice between the 1.25 and the 1.42 Ghz models?

I ordered with 512MB, SuperDrive and AirPort Extreme. I plan on using an External USB 2.0 HD w/ this as well.

I ordered my mini, 1.25/512/combo. and originally the guy at apple said it would ship on 2-15, i ordered on 2-4. then i get the email saying march 9.

so i called them, only slightly angry :mad: , i asked when my new ship date was, and the guy told me 3-3-05.

EDIT: cancelled with apple, and then ordered from microcenter. they have them instock as you read this. sure it costs a bit more, but im getting mine on tuesday. its a base model, but the ram is on its way too, and im headed to lowes hardware tomorrow to get sandpaper, and a putty knife.
