  • Yup. Should get here tomorrow (shipped the 17th). Apple did upgrade my shipping (back in June or July) but shortly changed it back to bestway.
  • Well, my tracking just got updated with a "Arrived at FedEx sort facility" dated 9/20 and a "Scanned at FedEx sort facility" dated 9/23. Maybe I'll get it today; estimated date is still tomorrow.

  • I have a tracking number, but the last entry in the tracking web page is "Departed FedEx sort facility" around 7am 9/18 in Sacramento. Estimated Delivery Date is 9/24. Is this just because it isn't being scanned while it is making its way across t…
  • For those in the first batch (those who had a 8/29 date at some point) who haven't gotten a shipping notice yet, did you CTO a 250GB drive or more than 1GB of RAM? It's rumored that the bigger drives and 1GB RAM modules are causing delays.
