hey gangs...

Apple just shipped my PB

Mar 15, 2005
9:23 pm Package status SUZHOU CN Package in FedEx location
12:43 pm Pickup status SUZHOU CN Package received after FedEx cutoff time
11:45 am Picked up by FedEx SUZHOU CN

How long did it take to get your PB once it was shipped from China?
(assuming CN is China)

I am in kansas and it took about 3 days if I remember right. The site doesn't update often then all the times are their local times so dont trust it, just give it about 3 days maybe 4.

The Powerbooks go from Suzhou CN to Shanghai CN, this takes a couple days in itself, if its coming into North American it goes to Anchorage Alaska, then to Memphis TN, then to wherever you are. I know this because I am currently tracking mine. Its held up in customs and it doesn't look like i'm going to see it today About 5 days total.

This is with express shipping BTW. My iMac made it here a lot faster than this.

I would have got mine yesterday but it sat at my local FexEx for a day doing nothing (My iMac only sat there for ~4 hours). As of 7am this morning it is on the vehicle ready for delivery, so I should have it very very soon!
