#1 was probably true too for a select few. It was "who is calling" as opposed to "when did you call".So, by the end of today, all of the above will be correct, except for #1.
8 am PST and it's already backed up to February...
for future products place the order AND go into store, then cancel if you get it in storeI went to an Apple Store and they basically said "order it online". In fact, they still had a previous tower sized Mac Pro on display.
If I had know I couldn't get at least a stock model at the store, I wound have ordered it early this morning, and wouldn't have to wait until March 5 for it.
