I just called MacMall to check the status of my Office v.X order, and it turns out Microsoft isn't promising delivery (at least to MacMall) until the 24th. Did I miss this news release, or am I reporting it?<br><br>If anyone actually finds out their order is getting shipped sooner than the 24th, I'd love to find out from where so I can switch my order.<br><br>

I talked to CDW, Microsoft's largest retailer, and they said they had a shipment coming in on the 21st, but they already had 78 backorders for a shipment of only 81 copies, so I'd look elsewhere. I also talked to Apple, and they said they were already shipping some copies to people, but it was people who placed their orders weeks ago. I placed mine mid October, so I'll let you know when they get to me.<br><br>

In case anyone was interested, I have found out that CompUSA seems to have a few copies in the stores here in San Diego, so I would assume that would translate the same around the country. However, they are charging $499 (plus sales tax) so I guess it all depends on how much you are willing to pay for quicker use of the software.<br><br>I have also found out that MacMall may or may not receive a shipment of Office today, not the 24th, but the sales rep couldn't promise anything.<br><br>

Just to follow up, MacMall has informed me that my copy of Office v.X was shipped Friday afternoon from their warehouses, and that they received at least a couple of hundred copies of the software.<br><br>
i just received my 3rd email from apple regarding office v.X. the first one said 5 more days...the second one said 5 more days. the most recent said 15 more days. i guess an education buyer is at the bottom of the totum pole. sux for me.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
Hey Sean--I got the same emails from Apple, and I too bought the academic package: but the nice UPS guy brought me the box with Office for X last night. So don't give up hope!<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear
