    Hey there,

    I'm thinking of getting a PB for school in the fall (yup, I'm switching :)) and I'm waiting around for some of those promotions to come up, cept I don't want to wait too long... I was just wondering how long it usually takes for an order to complete for a PB with custom options...?

    I ordered my 12" PowerBook on a Tuesday and it was delivered on Monday (so six days later). I used the two-day shipping option. Tracking indicated that it had shipped from Tiawan on Saturday.

    with Hamburglar.
    Stock macs come quickly - BTO can be a little longer. Of course if it is a stock mac, you could order from a US distributor....

    Once it ships from Taiwan - it's usually a business day or two til it arrives.
