Hi Shuffels,

no, I've only seen March when someone ordered at Amazon; and two weeks between shipment and delivery is quite a long time ... :eek:

edit... forget my first bit the OP jumped in there :)



Shuffles... I think it's just because you ordered a week after the keynote, hopefully you get it sooner, but it is irksome. I ordered mine straight after. But I'm thinking if these things turn up in UK apple stores this week and our orders are still not due to ship till next week, then I may just hop over to the UK and buy one from the store directly (and we'd still probably end up saving money ;) ) Annyoying that we haven't got any decent mac stores in the republic :(

Called @ apple yesterday and asked about the status of my order. Particularly why it doesn’t change while others already did. The woman asked me back: “Oh really? Where did you get this info?” I said “from US customers” She said “All right, I would have been surprised, if you would have said Europe.” No comment.. :mad:
After being insistent for a few more minutes to get anything out of her, she said that “Jan 30th will be the earliest possible date of shipment for you, while Feb 5th means the latest possible date!”. Let’s see.. :rolleyes:

so far only one of us has ordered to 1.8, 64ssd. Is there a noticeable speed difference with the solid state drive??

It is considerably faster when reading from it and faster than a HDD when writing to it. Longer battery life is an argument, but you may gain just a few minutes ... A SSD is more reliable if you throw your MBA against a wall, but ... do you really want to do this? ;)

In my opinion, the price doesn't justify those advantages of a SSD over a HDD; let's talk about it when the difference hits approx. 200 € ... :p

Cheers

I've noticed that there a many days between shipping and delivery, why?

Do they ship them to Alaska first and then to Europe?

My initial order was placed directly when the online store was up:

Feb 5th / Feb 14th... still hoping that my reseller will get it first.

To be honest, id say the huge difference between the shipping and delivery dates is Apple's way of covering their asses jst in case there was some sort of delay.

Before xmas i ordered a touch and a shuffle and they said it would take 5 to 7 working days for delivery and i got it within 48 hrs.

Also, its a new product so maybe their inventory isnt that big...hence the delays, for example, my march delivery:confused:
