Well, some of you know that I've been waiting for long time (19 days) for a BTO 17" PB to even get built. I'm seeing more and more delay-in-shipping threads too. And OF COURSE, I found out today that it was delayed yet again for another week. I'm cursed, must be... When I tried to find out what the situation was this time, well, it seems that the wrong order was placed internally in Apple. The specs are similar but not what I had specified. Sooo... I've been waiting for the wrong thing! If I hadn't inquired, I would have waited another two weeks, and then found out that I would have let 5 weeks go by for the wrong item to be delivered. For some stupid reason, it seems like a fitting end to this story, n'est-ce pas? *sigh* So, the PB order's been cancelled. Question to all you experienced Mac types: do I re-order (any guesses to how long this will take?) or should I just not bother given Apple's "apparent" production problems? I might just forget the Apple idea for a long while, pick up a Windows laptop for now to get by, and then re-evaluate my decision a year or two from now. Apologies in advance to all the great posters who helped me out with my decision the last couple of months.
