Is 17" HiRes Matte Display the New Delivery Choke Point?

    My corporate order for a MBP 2.4, 17" hi-res matte, 4 gig, Final Cut Express went to Apple on June 26. Since there was then a delay on 7200 160gb drives, I ordered the stock 5400 to avoid delay. At the time, shipping was showing at 2-4 business days. Now, apparently because of the hi-res matte display the shipping date is Aug 9! The website shows no delay on the 17" hi-res glossy or the stock 17" matte.

    Has anyone else seen delay this long on the 17" high-res matte?

    This is my first post since this will be my first Mac after several generations of ThinkPads whose only flaws were the OS.

    August 9th is a while and a half.

    Is there no local retailers you could get it from instead?

    A guy at a local mac store where I live told me that there is no delay on the 7200 rpm drives anymore, but there is a delay on the high res 17" screens.

    Got mine in less than a week with 7200 rpm 160 GB HDD and 17" Hi res. It took them two days to "fill order." I must have ordered the last one. :)
