    Is it me or does apple take forever to ship out their notebooks? Ordered my 17" april 10th w/ an estimated 1-3 day shipping. Still havn't received it yet. It's a CTO by the way.

    You might want to give them a call and find out what is going on. It should not take that long at this point.

    I ordered my 2.66Ghz with 320G 7200rpm glossy. It took about 3 days to ship. (ordered late on a Saturday night) From ordering on-line to in my hands in 5 days.

    Shipped from Shanghai through Anchorage, to Indianapolis, to San Diego in 1 day. In my hands in Oceanside, Ca. the day after that.

    :D

    I'd call...something is amiss.

    I think it depend where are you from. I ordered my UMBP 17" fully loaded + antiglare, took about 10-11 days. If i were you i will still call, 17 days is a bit excessive.

    you should have called earlier instead of waiting 17 days! I would have called them after 4 heh :p

    Anyways, my experience ordering the CTO 15" was I received it in one week. It did take 3 days to ship though

    My 17" CTO took over two weeks to come. My friend ordered a 15" CTO on the same day and his took about a week.

    This is pure speculation, but the 17" is something of a niche product and I expect they sell way more 15"s. So with less 17"s coming off the production line, you have to wait longer.

    Worth the wait though! :apple:

    OK spoke to a rep and she said it should be shipping this week, so I should be expecting it sometime next week. That's a month from order date to delivery.

    One of my coworkers got his UMBP 17" delivered to New York city in a little over a week. It was the base configuration.
