I know tha the 15" PB are supposed to start shipping Monday but I heard that the 17" PB will ship later. Does anyone know the ballpark for when they are supposed to ship or be in Apple Stores?

    They should be in Apple stores now, unless I'm mistaken, but I don't think I am.

    As far as shipping dates...Messiahtosh is correct, just go configure one in the online store and do everything but order it, it'll tell you what the exact ship date is.

    Apple's press release says 'early May' for the 17 inch model. Maybe they're getting these out earlier than expected?

    I thought I saw something about an 'early May' ship date. Has anyone tried to purchase on from an Apple Store?

    I ordered one online last Monday (April 19) and according to Apple it was just shipped this morning. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get it by the end of the week! So yeah, they are shipping the 17" PowerBooks already...

    I was at the Knox Street Apple store in Dallas yesterday. They had the 12" and 15" new PBooks out, but I did not see a 17"er.

    Ordered mine shortly after noon on the 23rd, and it still says "On or before 04/30". It's interesting, as there are several guys here who ordered on the 22nd and which were shipped a couple of days ago.



    Ahh... it's like being a kid in the days leading up to xmas, all over again!

    Well, in tracking the progress of my 17" PowerBook, it shipped from Shanghai about a day and a half ago, but for the last 24 hours it's been showing as sitting in a FedEx sort facility in Anchorage. FedEx is still predicting that it will be delivered by the end of day tomorrow, which seems increasingly unlikely given Customs and the fact that Anchorage is at least two flights away from Winnipeg. On the other hand I'm often amazed at how good couriers can be so we'll see...

    Mine will be here tomorrow. I have been watching the FedEx tracker like the the SantaCam. Shanghai, China... Alaska, Indiana... tomorrow here in Seattle.. Yeah!!!! Baby! I have a build to order 128Mb Video; 5400RPM HD. I ordered a 512 MB upgrade from a third party for $105.



    I can't wait.

    Went to the Willow Bend, Plano TX store tonight. They had the 17" model ready to sell. Even had 1 out for display.

    Does the order status page ever change from "open"?

    I'm wondering b/c I had problems with my original order and had to place it again. I cleared the Credit Card charge on the phone with Apple, yet the Order status page still says Open? Is this normal? The shipping date now says on or before May 3. I've asked it to be delivered in San Francisco which is where I'll be for 10 days starting from next Wednesday. I'm just nervous that my 17" misses that time window.
