After the keynote was over I couldn’t hit the refresh button fast enough on the Apple Store so that I could place my order for the first Intel-based notebook from Apple. As soon as the store opened I zipped through the options and slapped down the plastic for a shiny new 1.83GHz Core Duo MacBook Pro.
I placed my MBP order on January 10, 2006 at 11:02 AM PST according to the View order details button on Apple’s Order Status page. Like Steve promised, the MacBook is listed as shipping in mid-February, on the 15th to be exact. What I don’t really get is the delivery date. Even though I opted for the faster shipping service (for an extra US$18) which is listed as “2-3 Business Days” on the Apple Store, my delivery date is estimated to be February 23.
