17" unibody MacBook Pro deliveries not as speedy as hoped


If you've been waiting by the mailbox for that slightly oversized package to arrive... the wait just got a bit longer. Our correspondents have been sending in the news this afternoon that the expected ship date on the 17" unibody MacBook Pro has been pushed to February 19 -- the original ship date was supposed to be Tuesday 2/3, so this is a big drag if you had plans for that big screen on Valentine's Day.

The complete email below:

To Our Valued Apple Customer:

Thank you again for your order!

Wrapping up the new 17-inch MacBook Pro is taking a few days longer

than we projected.

As a result, we will be unable to ship your 17-inch MacBook Pro

until February 19, 2009.

If you don't want to wait, you may cancel your order and receive a

prompt refund by calling our toll-free customer service number at

800-676-2775 or by visiting our online order status website at

If we do not hear from you before we ship the 17-inch MacBook Pro to

you, we will assume that you have agreed to this shipment delay. In

that event, a shipment notification with tracking information will be

emailed to you as soon as your order is shipped.

Again, there is no need to contact us unless you wish to cancel

your order.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience this

delay may have caused you.

Thank you for shopping at the Apple Online Store!
