    Hello:

    I'm sure the vast majority of folks got their MBA at the Apple store, but many of them are appearing on other sites (e.g., ebay) now. Curious, where did you purchase your MBA? I got mine (1.8GHz, 80GB HD) for a cheaper price than a brand new black macbook from the apple store hehehe :D

    Tysons Corner Apple Store, Vienna, Virginia. They had them on display, I went for a look and a fondle, returned a few days later when they had stock to sell and bought my beautiful little 1.8 GHz 64 GB SSD! Also got the Superdrive and the ethernet dongle at the same time....

    Apple online store. I first tried Amazon but got a ship date of March 31!

    I did order the Time Capsule at the same time from Amazon and they originally said Feb 4 but we know how accurate that was :)

    Local Apple retail store ... as cool as it looked I had to handle it first and put it through its paces. Would have only save a couple days if I had ordered online first but it was the safe bet to be sure I wanted it.

    Online, 12 hrs after the announcement.

    I don't know why, but TRACKING *my* Air as it came off the factory line, to customs, to FedEx then to Alaska, and to Indianapolis, to Pittsburgh, and my home .... actually WATCHING it travel 1/2 way around the world is just SO COOL.

    I did that for the first time with the iMac 24 last August, and I would actually take a few days longer, just for the JOY of watching ONE single machine travel from the orient to my front door.

    That is just soooooo....

    .....almost as cool as getting your first new car!

    Apple...a replacement for a lemon of a Macbook. Got full replacement credit on a first generation Macbook toward the purchase of a new MBA. Apple Customer Relations ROCKS (this is why one should alway get Apple Care)

    Apple store the evening of the MBA announcement. I tracked it travel from China to the US along with the other first-day buyers. The anticipation was heightened by snowstorms in China and other delays. The wait was worth it and the MBA converted me from Windows for good!

    Apple Store

    Willowbend Mall in Plano, TX - Got the superdrive, the ethernet adapter, and a copy of Office 2008. I also got an extra charger, and will pick up another one either today or tomorrow. I will keep one on my travel bag, one in the office and another by my bed, maybe a third one in my home office...

    School Store

    Custom order via my university bookstore on 2/1. I ordered a 1.6 with SSD. Supposed to ship by 2/25.

    It is 2/25 today and I am waiting to see it ship (no mention of it being prepared yet. (I guess with an educator discount, they have less incentive, but the school is paying I wanted to save us on the sales tax as I am a professor and its a work computer). Foolish of me I guess....
