It was supposed to ship “by” today, but doesn’t look like it did. No e-mail yet notifying me of a delay either… frustrating.
The only reason I can think of that he got higher priority is that he was able to order through an employee directly (25% off) while I was slumming with the friends and family program (15% off).
I keep reading reports about the Quad shipping early to people too – and the Apple store lists the ship time for new orders at 7-10 days. Seems reasonable to expect it to be on a truck soon.
UPDATE: I got an e-mail this morning with the following:
Due to an unexpected delay, we now anticipate shipping the following item(s) as follows:
PMG5 QUAD 2.5 CTO will now ship on or before 12/07/2005
We regret any inconvenience this delay may cause.
Apple allocates product to employee orders only after filling consumer and education orders.
