I ordered mine the day it came out. I checked the status this morning and it said it was "released for shipping" this morning, IN OTTAWA, and should be delivered today by FedEx.

I will keep my fingers crossed.

I ordered it two days after the release and the order is pushed to the 21 as well. Sorry but I find this very unprofessional from the shipping department. They knew a week in advance that I wanted it! Whats the point of ordering online when you dont get it first? Next time I will get it from a retailer...

Check your order status again today. Mine also said on or before Jan 21 but I checked this morning and it now says shipped and should arrive before noon today.

FWIW, when I orded my Powerbook, my shipping date was Dec. 19th. When I checked on the 19th, the shipping dates and times weren't correct. For about 3 hours they had it changed that my purchase was going to ship Dec. 31st, when in reality it had been shipped.

They are slow updating their page. You best bet is check after business hours tonight or tomorrow morning to get the right information.

Sorry to rain on your parade VGG but when I checked with FedEx, they explained that Released For Shipping-Ottawa means just that. Apple has shipped and the DESTINATION is Ottawa. As you continue to track via FedEx, you will see your package as it routes through the States until it finally lands at Canada Customs. This has happened to me before where I track superfast delivery speed only to have the package sit in Customs in Mount Hope or elsewhere until Customs move their butts. It is unfortunate that Apple always seems to ship on a Friday and Canada seems to shut down for the weekend. That's life in Canada.
Cheers,

I ordered mine on the 6th and the order status says it is to be delivered on the 19th. Why didn't I just wait and pick it up at the store today? Oh well, busy this weekend anyway so I guess it doesn't really matter. Sigh.

Mine shipped, but it's not in FedEx's system, so that means FedEx hasn't picked it up yet...looks like it'll be Tuesday before I get it.

This morning my order status said "on or before the 21st" however this evening it's "shipped". My FedEx tracker says it's awaiting pick-up in California. Heh heh. :cool:

Yeah, I figured that out shortly after I posted. My tentative delivery date is Jan 19.

You know, this is really sh!tty of Apple. If it is available IN STORES Jan 16, they should have made arrangements so that people who took the time to buy the [email protected] thing online the day it was announced get it at the same time as others who simply stroll in off the street.

I will NEVER buy software direct from Apple again. Man...someone needs to shake up their marketing and PR departments soooooo badly. What a huge disappointment. They should be ashamed.

:mad:
