I ordered my new 15" PB directly after Wednesday's announcements and the status says "shipped". When checking the TNT tracking site it says:

21 okt 2005 23:21 Eindhoven Shipped From Originating Depot
21 okt 2005 19:18 Arnhem Hub Consignment Passed Through Transit Point
21 okt 2005 19:18 Arnhem Hub Consignment Received At Transit Point

When do you think I can expect it? Anybody's order being processed yet?

The Fed Ex tracker should have a expected delivery date. Most of the time thats pretty accurate.

*PSSST* It's not Fedex - it's TNT. And from what I've read in the forums here, TNT doesn't have reliable updates on that.

Look again, that's a ship by date, not a delivered by date. So depending on where you live and what shipping option you selected, you'l get your machine up to a week after it ships.

And of course when Apple has a 3-4 week leadtime on a new model, it could ship anywhere from the 3 week mark to the 7 or so week mark.

Ordered my 15" PB yesterday

(October 21st) and when I checked the order status this afternoon I was pleased to see that it is at the "preparing for shipping" stage. Although it says on there that the estimated shipping date is 10/26, I'm betting that it will be much sooner than that. I hope so, anyway!

What do you expect?

I'll give you a hint. The odds of a PowerKMac update then is none.
A PowerBook update would also be slim.

Keep waiting, you'll save money that way. But of course, you won't have a new computer.

I'm waiting for MWSF also, but for the following reasons:

1. I'm overseas on a business trip; won't be back until December so no need to order the new PM yet. There's a 3-4 week wait anyway.

2. In December I'll be busy with holiday travel and holiday expenses.

3. So that puts us in January. By then I expect the nVidia 7800GT to be available as a BTO option, I expect the PMs to be shipping in quantity, and I expect iLife '06 to come pre-installed.

Are you Steve Jobs? :D

Anyway if the 7448 didn't make it into the PB for penny pinching reasons, and not to give Apple more headroom for expansion in the coming months, let's just say I'm not even interested in doing business with them:mad:

My Apple Order status just changed to: "Tendered for Delivery", STOCKHOLM, ST, SE 23 Oct 2005 22:22, while it on the TNT tracking site says: "24 okt 2005 00:22 Stockholm Onforwarded For Delivery". What does that mean? Is it in Stockholm tonight, or will it be soon? I'm kind of confused. One more thing, when they do deliver my package, will they give me a notice or something that they are on their way? I've only recieved one e-mail from Apple; an order confirmation, but no shipping notice or something. Is this normal?

I'm waiting for the money to buy a powerbook. When the 12" gets these:
*Better Graphics card -128MB
*512MB ram on board
*Firewire 800

So yeah, I'm waiting for my new powerbook to arrive ;)

Oh man, can't stop checking the Order Status page. My 15" PowerBook hasn't shipped yet, but it changed from 'Manufacturing' to 'Preparing to Ship' sometime between yesterday and this morning.

I got the gig of RAM (1 stick, so I can upgrade to 2 later), 100 gigs @ 7200rpm HD (so I can fry eggs on this thing :D), and SuperDrive. Can't wait to compare it to my current iBook setup!

Waiting is so hard..

I am waiting for my first mac to arrive as well. Unfortunatly it is still at the processing order stage.

For those interested its a 15" Powerbook with the 7200 rpm hard drive and 512 + 1 gb of ram ordered seperatly.

And I thought waiting for the new powerbooks to be announced was painful...

Dunno what all the fuss is about... I walked into the local Apple store and walked out with a $1799 Powerbook 15" 80 gig 5400 RPM 512 meg RAM stock model in a matter of minutes. I pondered the 100 gig 1 gig ram model but didn't want to pay the inflated price on the RAM. Ordered 2 1 gig modules tonight and will 'deal' with 80 gig for now and upgrade it to 160 gig 7200 RPM or 120 gig 7200 RPM later. (Yes, I know they aren't out, but they will be eventually, when I'm ready :) )

My current notebook is on eBay right now so I can have money to buy a 15".:D I'm glad to see they are shipping quickly. My university made it seem like we needed to buy these Thinkpads due to their network config and firewalls and such. After going to OSX, I just can't handle windows anymore and a number of enlightened classmates of mine have Macs and no problems whatsoever. I should have it ordered by the end of the week. If any of you are interested in a Thinkpad though.

Check the TNT Tracker again. Sweden is close to Denmark, so the difference in delivery dates should'nt be that big.
