    Sorry if this is a repost, if it is please feel free to post a link.

    But the apple store still is claiming that the unibody mbp 17 inch is shipping in 3-4 weeks, but some people have already got theirs? And the new date for shipping was Feb 19th, but it still says 3-4 weeks. Does this mean that it's still 3-4 weeks before we'll be seeing this in the apple stores? or did they just forget to update it. Sorry but I am confused. I really hope that they will be in stores in or around feb 19th...but who knows.

    It means that so many people have ordered them that there is a 3 to 4 week wait for new purchasers.

    People who ordered in early January have already begun receiving there units. I ordered mine on the 4th of February and it is 'Prepared for Shipment' I would expect it to arrive either this Friday or Monday.

    so if i order one now, i will have to wait 3-4 weeks before it ships? i thought once they ramp up production and start shipping which they already have then we won't have these delays anymore?
