I recently ordered a powerbook from apple.com, first time (very excited), its nice etc etc, ill spare the tech details (mmmmhay).
But the tracking number turned up something odd....
...my powerbook is in Shanghai, China??? Is that where manufacturing takes place??
And now it says due to "off-loading" my package is being delayed??

So my question is, when everyone ordered their powerbook from Apple.com, did yours come from Shanghai? If, it did, was it a long delivery time, and did a did it ever say that your package was an "exception" on ups.com?
....cant wait to get it....

Yeah Apple out sourced everything to make it cheaper. Alot of companies have been doing that, to save cost. Mostly anything that takes building from apple comes from shanghai,china. The only thing i dont know is if they send all there stuff from there.

Same Plane

Your PB must be on the same plane as mine :) I have the same message when I track mine, and I am NY like the previous poster so I hope mine comes in a few days sooner than later.

I wish I could find out what the hang-up is with my shipment. It has been stuck for 3-4 days now with the same message from the UPS tracking page. "packages offloaded by airline causing delays" great!

Yeah, so i called UPS today, they said scheduled delivery date is Thursday the 24th by the end of the day. She also mentioned that when that message is displayed, not all packages are continuously scanned...meaning that the package COULD be in transit, only it does not indicate such.....so wait till thursday, if it doesnt come then all you that ordered from Apple and have that message, then call UPS and have them track it.

DERNIT I WANT MY POWERBOOK!!!!!! *sobs in the corner loudly*

I am in california and it took 5 days from date of shipment to get to me. 5 business days that is. It arrived on a Friday and then Fedex wouldn't release it until Monday because that was the true delivery date.

When my iBook was shipped around December 26th, it came from California..everyone else got theirs shipped from Shanghai..did they just have a few laying around in the Apple store in California? I upgraded a few things in it so I couldn't have just been shipped with stock features..also..the package it came in was so cheap..the box was as thin as a piece of oak tag..the box even had a dent on it..
