    Has anyone who preordered from Amazon got a shipping notification yet? My order still says 'yet to be shipped'. I talked with Amazon CRs and they all said shipping soon. Would appreciate any feedback!

    Mine also shows:
    "Not yet shipped
    Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date."

    Still no update on your MacBook? Debating whether I should talk with Amazon CR to see when these will ship...

    I chatted with Amazon Representative a minute ago. Probably we will get it in January 2017. The following is the conversation between us:

    CR: Let me take a look, just a moment.
    ME: thanks
    CR: It looks like we are still waiting on the item to be brought to our warehouses.
    CR: Let me look a little further into the order and see if I can get a projected date for you.
    ME: Not only people who ordered from Apple directly got their items, but also people who ordered from other third-party seller (e.g. BestBuy) also have got their orders
    CR: I am digging deeper into the shipment details, thank you for your patience. I understand that you are wanting the item delivered, sorry for the wait.
    ME: Thanks. Take you time.
    CR: Thank you.
    CR: I'm sorry; this isn't listed on the item's product page and I don't have access to any additional information. The manufacturer may have more information about the item, so you may want to try contacting them directly.
    ME: what do you mean by "this isn't listed on the item's product page"
    CR: It is a possibility that Apple may have more knowledge of when they are going to get the Pc's to us.
    CR: I am not finding that information on the product page and description.
    ME: OK, thanks
    CR: 1-800-275-2273
    This is the number I am bringing up for Apple customer support.
    ME: thanks
    CR: Would you like me to reach out to them and see if I can get that information?
    ME: That would be great!!!!
    ME: I'll appreciate it very much
    CR: Ok just a moment, let me see how long the hold time is.
    ME: Thanks!
    CR: It looks like the estimated delivery date of the item is January 18, 2016. I am so sorry that Apple was unable to give me more of an estimated date.
    ME: January?
    CR: I even spoke with a senior advisor about the situation.
    Thats what I am showing as an estimated date.
    ME: January 18, 2016?
    do you mean 2017?
    CR: Yes 2017, sorry
    ME: Thanks for the information.
    CR: Very sorry I could not offer you a better answer.

    As I've checked and confirmed that this item is still not yet released and the expected release date is not known. We'll make sure to update our website listing when we have more information. However after ome additional research, I've confirmed that this order item should be released and deliver to your address within a week.

    I really hope that isn't true. Last time I spoke with Amazon they stated it would be delivered before the end of the month. But not really sure if I should believe anything they've told me as we've alll received different information from them.

    Might want to try B&H. I bought today and it's to be delivered tomorrow.

    No sales tax outside of NY. I canceled my Apple Store order placed 3 AM after announcement - was looking at Nov 28-Dec 5 delivery.

    The following is what I have got a minute ago:

    "Im sorry for the item not being shipped yet and for the wait time on our chat. The only thing I can find is that your order is pending fufillment which means they are preparing it to ship."
    me: "what does "pending fufillment" mean?"
    "Pending Fufillment means the item is waiting to ship."

    Every time when I chat with a different CR, I always get a different answer...
