    I preordered as well. I was hoping to wake up to the delivery guy at the door with my new "kitty", but instead I got the same email saying that it would be delayed..

    Did you call and find out why? Did they run out or something? I mean...you ordered pretty dang early. What a bummer guys.

    "You see, Apple, you know how to TAKE the pre-order. But you don't know how to SHIP the pre-order. And it's really the shipping of the pre-order that's the whole reason for pre-ordering in the first place..."

    (with apologies to the Seinfeld car rental skit)

    Still waiting here too. Shipped out just before midnight last night, will arrive on Monday apparently. I guess I should try to get out and enjoy the weekend...

    I just called Apple, they were very unhelpful.

    I wanted to cancel my order because I figure I'll be buying a new mac soon anyway and the ones I have don't even support core image, so I called to cancel.

    The woman said my order could not be canceled because my item had already shipped. I told her about the e-mail and she said, right but everyone who ordered tiger got that e-mail, but it might still come today, if not it will come monday.

    And I said so if it shipped why haven't I gotten a shipping confirmation or why can't you give me a tracking number and she said there are problems with "logistics"

    And basically if i wanted to cancel i would have to wait to receive and send it back for a refund....

    those bit torrents may be illegal, but at least they don't make promises they can't keep.... (i'm not saying i use them...anymore that is)

    Mine shipped out Thursday, with 2 day shipping.
    So won't get it until Monday.

    I am going out to CompUSA tonight to get my copy.

    I am pretty ticked because if you called 800-MY-APPLE, the recorded message said anyone who ordered before April 26th would get their copy on Friday. They didn't say "we'll try" or "some people".

    And, I ordered my copy on April 12th.
