At 1.45 this morning I got the email from Apple that Leopard has shipped... I could very well have it tomorrow.

Be interesting to too if you get it on or before the 26th..

Will quieten all those naysayers who didn't think it'll be in your hands on THE day.. :)

Hmmm, mines still saying "Not yet shipped" ordered the night it was released...

Isn't Kuma in Japan though? Probably not as far to ship!

Has anyone else in Australia had theirs shipped yet? I am still not yet shipped.

Wouldnt that be another great up yours to America if we got it as early as tomorrow :D

At 1.45 this morning I got the email from Apple that Leopard has shipped... I could very well have it tomorrow.

Kodawarisan mentions that kuroneko yamato is delivering it in Japan. Is that the case up in Hokkaido? If so, they mention that you could ring them up and give them an excuse to deliver it ASAP instead of the specified delivery date of 26th :)

Yeah, but the box won't let itself be opened until 6pm on Friday....;)

it comes with a countdown timer on the package, and if you open it before, black turtle necked goons will attack you with rainbow coloured beachballs...

too far? :D


mine is still yet to ship, ordered the night it was available for preorder

ED: And I cant check the order status either, because the apple store crashes firefox and IE every time!! (at work, no macs)

the australian orders will no doubt ship thursday night

I hope someone one this forum goes and tests this out on a 800mhz system (with some sorta hack/patch) to allow it.

It's a shame 67mhz stops so many 800mhz users from installing it.

I'm not too worried, mine is 1.33, it should do fine.

I'm curious to hear the ooohs and ahhhs from users here when they finally get their copies.

vargz
24th October 2007, 12:37 PM

Agreed. Mine still says:


Ships by: DELIVERS ON OCTOBER 26TH

I want it before 6pm Friday, jus cos the guy at NextByte told me I would not get it before 6pm even through Apple Online. Just to prove him wrong!

Orders have arrived in the US already, and are being installed.

It seems to be a "soft" release date, to say the least.

Mine has not shipped yet.

I'm 2 hours south of Sydney, so I hope I get it Friday.

i want it now! but i've paid for it...

god damn it...

If you were hypothetically able to source Leopard from somewhere prior to receiving your package, I suspect that the speed involved in obtaining it would probably be a significant obstacle in actually being able to install it prior to receiving your package.

Just a thought. So don't feel too bad. :)

andrew.wilson
24th October 2007, 08:08 PM
Pffft...its bigger than my entire monthly download quota! :o

I just wish it was Friday already! I went through most of today thinking it was Thursday and Leopard was coming tomorrow! :o [/fanboi]

ummm...i am happily downloading at 880Kb/s at the mo' - wont take too long to d/l 7Gb's.

hypothetically, having bought a legitimate copy one might not feel too bad about downloading it a little early.

Next Byte at Melbourne Uni is not open Friday night for the launch, but will be selling Leopard on Saturday from 11am for $145, not $99.

So looks like it's back to Apple online for me. This is what I hate about Apple's selective campus reseller thingo - if you can't offer it across the baord, why don't they just properly verify their own education sales and make one price available for all education customers. Grr.

NextByte Melb Uni will be open from 6pm-9pm tomorrow... I went there and asked yesterday :)

My copy shipped today, though I'm not holding my breath it'll arrive tomorrow, unless they ship it by TNT or Toll - everyone's elses idea of express shipping to Darwin is 2 - 4 days. :p

so where in adelaide might someone with a student friend go to obtain it that cheap tomorrow night?

Danamania
25th October 2007, 12:40 PM
Mine was also marked as Shipped somewhere around 9am today (ordered from Apple Australia).

Given my past experience with Apple and little OS sized boxes, I expect it's likely I'll see it tomorrow midday.

It is usually after 4pm the day it was attempted to be delivered.

Damn you all! I have exam period, and I can't risk not having a stable, working mac for the next month. As a consolation, I probably won't get to use Leopard until 10.5.1, so a few of the more obvious bugs will get ironed out.

Dear Apple Customer,

We are pleased to inform you that we have shipped your Leopard OS order and delivery is expected on Oct 26.

Delivery to locations outside metropolitan areas and major regional centres will require an additional 2 working days.

Thank you for choosing Apple!

I wonder why Apple isn't providing tracking numbers?

OziMac
25th October 2007, 04:37 PM
I actually was told they're being shipped by Express Post, hence no tracking numbers. But obviously some of them seem to be sent through TNT, so can't explain that.

I ordered in a rush last night before midnight, and I've been on prepared for shipment ever since. Got a feeling that it might not arrive tomorrow, or if it does, it might not be until the end of the day - so much for trying to get it before the stores launch! ;)

I just talked to Apple and they said it was being delivered by TNT, even though the Order Status didn't list a carrier.

25th October 2007, 06:14 PM
What surprises me about this thread is how many people are buying Leopard direct from Apple, rather than going to their local reseller.

Can't stand our resellers, or just geographic location makes direct purchase the only option?

OziMac
25th October 2007, 06:16 PM
Probably more a case of wanting to get it sooner rather than later.

You've got to remember lavo that to some of us tragics, a matter of hours for a new OS release can be a deal clincher. ;)

Yea but the Leaked copy is a GM and you can't be sure that it is actually the final version.
But yea I did come across it to, and was tempted to get it but then I thought, what a wast of download... ill be getting it tomorrow or the day after anyway :) and besides i'd still be downloading it in a few days if I did get it thou that way.

My local reseller is less than half a km walk from where I am, so my reason to go through Apple Online is the former.

Poor service, ill-informed, wrong advice and a touch of arrogance means I only shop there when I'm desperate.

My contact at Apple Online is honest, knowledgeable and doesn't act like he's God's gift to Apple. That's all I ask for :)

Hello everyone,

I am new to Mac (owner of a 20' imac for 2 weeks) and loving every minute of it never going back again.

I am ordered my upgrade online, it only cost me for the shipping because I ordered and received my imac in mid October, but it still hasn't shipped yet. Do we know where these upgrades are coming from?

Am still finding my way around the mac and this forum :)

I'm in Brisbane and mine's still in Sydney, but the last update was at 14:51, so I'm hoping its on its way up here soon.

I live less than 1K from the TNT Brisbane hub, so I'm really, really hoping that I'm their first stop on the route, otherwise I got a feeling I'd be towards the end on their way back.

Mine is still in Not Yet shipped. I ordered first night it was available for pre-order.

Just wondering I noticed it said stuff about requires receipt. How did you guys order it. I was eligable for the $12 upgrade, as I purchased my iMac on 01/10/2007.

this is my first Apple product ever and so far everytime I have been let down by apple.

For those that don't know - you can track TNT shipments at http://www.tnt.com.au

Your shipping reference is your "Waybill Number" from the PDF tax invoice you should have received today.

Regards,
Shane.

Mine does not have waybill number on it at all. It has customer number, order number, invoice number and product number.... no tracking number. It says it was sent yesterday due to arrive today - will probably miss the shipment as usual but I have no way of knowing where it is.

If TNT can't get a driver in your area, they usually contract the run out to someone else.

Its pretty crap that if you order from Apple, you receive it almost 12 hours before any reseller is allowed to sell it.
