Finally, it has left Taiwan!

I just called FedEx. They blamed it on some kind of mechanical delay, but said that it has now left Taiwan, but this info hasn't made it on the web tracking page. They also estimated delivery next Monday.

BTW, does FedEx deliver on Saturday, and/or does it depend on location?

I hate to ruin the parade, but although I am very happy with my 15" I must admit that mine suffers from the "Dark corner" problem, where the lower right hand-side of the display is darker than the rest - Apparently this is a known issue and Apple aready has a fix for it, but I will have to send my Powerbook back for repair (which means that I will be without it for a few weeks). The issue is not that bad, so I am not geing to send it in now, I will probably do it after Xmas holidays...

Good lord Apple, What is going on???

Really, they said "known issue"? My brand -new replacement machine is sans spots, but does have a very slight darkening in the right lower corner (smaller than a dock icon, for example). Will it get worse?

Sorry to hear that. Hope you can get it straightened out in due time. It's kinda scary ordering two laptops that doubles our chances of getting a defective unit. We're still hoping though that we won't have any problems. Time will tell!

Regarding the FedEx tracking page, I've given up at this point on it providing up-to-date info. The page hasn't been update in a long time; the page still says it's in Taiwan!

I just called FedEx since the webpage isn't being updated any more. Estimated delivery has been moved up to this Friday now. Looks like I might get to play with it over the weekend!

Hey, jenbmb, does your webpage list an estimated delivery time? Mine still does not, but when I called FedEx's automated system yesterday, they gave me an estimated delivery of Friday. I just called this morning received no estimated delivery information. Just curious what info you might have.

Actually, there was no estimated delivery listed on my page, either, so I called them because my wife and I had plans to be out today. I'm hanging around a little while waiting for the delivery. It's supposed to be here by now (it's 10:30); hopefully it won't be long.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to unpack and play with it till after 3:00 pm when I get back.

BTW, my tracking page now says that as of 8:39 am, it's "On FedEx vehicle for delivery."

This is my first ever post on a Mac! As I said earlier, I got my PB yesterday -- actually my wife's and mine came at the same time even though they were separate educational orders! So, we've had double the fun!

I'll give a full "switcher's report" a little later, but for now, I'll just say that everything, in terms of set-up, has been a breeze so far. In fact, I just set-up our PBs on an AirPort Extreme wireless network (first time ever)! Awesome.

So far, everything appears to be working, and *both* LCD screens look great -- hopefully they stay that way!

Anyway, as I said, I'll give a full report later after I've had more time with it. My first impression, though, is that I love it!
