    Was just wondering, if I would get it quicker by just going into my nearest apple and picking it up or pre ordering it now?

    Maybe someone has previous experience with this on launch of new machines.

    Thanks

    when I ordered my Time Capsule it appeared in stores before it arrived at my house. If you got the cash you may as well buy it direct.

    most of the smaller Apple stores experience a release delay of 2-3 days before they get things in stock so depending on what you choose for shipping you can decide which would be faster. When I ordered my 24" it only took 3 days to ship.

    Should the i7s be available in-store, or will it be strictly a BTO option?

    I have often thought about that when purchasing large items from an Apple store, touch wood nothing has ever happened to me yet! Hope you enjoy your new purchase!

    Might just ask an apple employee to help me take it to the car, So I can blame them "if" it did get stolen :D

    Once it's at home, it's safe.. ahhhh contents insurance :cool:
