Laptop battery replacments starting to arrive


When I contacted Apple about the battery that was in my Powerbook (Yes, I'm one of the lucky 1.8 million people who get a shiny, new battery from Apple), I was told that my replacement would arrive in 4-6 weeks. I thought that was odd, as Apple's turnaround time is usually much better than that, but they do have nearly two million batteries to deal with, so I understand.

Today, two of our readers have written in to let us know that their replacements arrived today via FedEx, despite having been given the same 4-6 week window that I received. So, TUAWers, what has your experience been? Have any of you gotten shiny, new batteries over the past couple of days?
