Good news all round I would have thought. They are starting to ship and they are already faster than thought...

My shipment date just got moved from the 15th to the 28th of this month!! I pre-ordered a 1.67 a long time ago too. I really doubt they will be shipping anything this week.

I would have thought a new production run would have been needed to change the spec of all the pros which have already been manufactured/shipped.
I think this was always on the cards and apple are displaying a very good marketing ploy by supposedly 'upgrading' everyones orders.
Thats not to say its not a nice bonus for those who thought they were getting a lower spec cpu. But how many extra orders will be placed by people thinking they will be getting a 'free' upgrade.
Nothing wrong with it and I think it is a cracking idea.

I was speaking with an Apple rep today and they told me that the change to the 28th is just prelimenary. Tommorrow they are going to put the actual shipping dates on the order status page and update the previous orders to the new laptops. Anxiously waiting my 2GHz MacBook Pro.

From the looks of it they start shipping on Friday or Saturday to the Apple Stores. Those are probably the demo models. Then as available they will be shipping pre-orders. I am guessing they will be trying to have a decent in store stock by April 1.
