Well, standard shipping orders have to be there by Friday right? I would expect them to have started shipping.

I wonder how many of those are bog-standard units and how many are BTOs. I plan to buy a 1.42GHz/80GB model with SuperDrive, AirportExtreme and Bluetooth. I look forward to hearing other people's experiences with the machines.

Apple made me mad. I ordered within 30 mins of the store coming back up (BTO, Superdrive and BT). I called the NEXT DAY to up it to 512RAM. The genious on the phone CANCELLED my previous order (due to arrive on Jan 22) and entered a whole new one, with the upped memory. Now it says its shipping on or before Feb 10th...

GRR....

You should have just went with the 1.42Ghz version, and saved a couple of dollars.

Congrats to those who got em. Me? The wait continues til the release of Tiger. There is something just yummy about Tiger and a Mini. :D Now if only Apple would release their 17" G5 PowerBook. ;) :D


Patience may be a virtue. Its also a PITA. :p

My 'lunch box'

Looks like the Mac lunch box is shipping nicely along now... good to see volume ready so soon after an announcement rather than the enternal wait... in our part of the globe - ie too small to notice is generally takes a couple of months for product to get here...

Just wish Apple would hurry up and finish Tiger... getting sick of waiting for the new thingamagiggs.... :mad:
