Better if they could ship them, though... the one I ordered three weeks ago still isn't here, and the place I ordered from says they have month-old orders that still haven't been filled. For awhile it seemed like Apple had this problem licked, now it is back again. There's always something wrong it seems. They can't sell what they can't produce.

While I sympathize I'm glad we're not all sitting here saying they shouldn't have invested all of that capital on production facilities ASSUMING the iBook would break records. It's tough knowing we're losing sales, but remember what the write-off for the Cube did to the stock.
