Next Byte and JB Hifi have also promised "in a few hours" - that was a few hours ago!!

I also can't face Chaddy...

I expected a better release schedule - rather displeasing, all this ringing around and delay

NB Elizabeth St were selling them at 11:30 am this morning. They even threw in a free chocolate bar with each purchase

I think Apple made sure all their stores had them by opening today then prioritised their resellers after that.Bit crazy not to despatch to ensure everyone had them for opeing on Friday rather than whenever the truck arrives friday. Poorly (or smartly ;-)) managed by Apple

I pre-ordered mine on Tuesday this week for it to be delivered to today and its still howing as "Prepaired for Delivery" on the Mac Store - Poor given they were advertising it as delivered on 28th! If I'd known it wasn't going to come I'd have gone in to the Mac store in the city!

Pretty peved off over it.

Can also confirm next byte on Elizabeth streets is selling them. Lots of them. Myer still seems not and JB had a SL temp sign up then removed it.

Has there been a pricing change for anyone?

Funny to suddenly see lots then in the wild all of a sudden with quite a few people on elizbaeth street with a copy in hand.

Chaddy Apple Store had a fair number when I went to get mine about two hour ago. Currently installing.

Ordered mine Tuesday. Arrived by TNT courier around 4pm today. Shiny packaging, an obvious gleaming light emanating from inside. Haven't opened it yet, but I bet it's a snow leopard.

Lot of lethargic friends said they will stroll to one of the Apple shops & pick one up. They're still struggling a bit, or running around to different shops, even enduring queues. Common sense should tell us that internet shopping has/can make our lives easier. Apple didn't charge us early-birders freight-costs either. Some good things still happen.

Walked into CompNow in Malvern afterschool and instantly brought one. Easy peasy, no hassle at all. In and out.

Myer Highpoint had some. I had to ask for them as they weren't on display though.

Got mine from Next Byte in Westfield Southland. They were the ONLY place in Southland with them! Dick Smith had apparently "sold out" - sounded unconvincing - Myer doesn't expect any for a few days, and JB Hi Fi there had not received them.

Anyhow - got my copy... currently installing. 50 minutes to go. So it says...

Yep, that's where I ended up going too funnily enough - none at DSE, DJs or Myer, didn't bother trying anywhere else.

Mine's installed. YAY. Took a little over an hour in a smoother-than-silk install, no hiccups, no issues. I was out of the room getting a drink and when I came back... the "Welcome" video was playing.

Hehe.
