Laptop shipping mystery

Apple is apparently not being forthcoming about when they'll ship the new 17" laptops to third-parties, because Amazon still has no arrival or ship date for it. But what's weird is that if I look up the order on the Amazon iPhone app, it says it'll ship March 21. That is suboptimal.

So now I feel like I'm kind of stuck in a limbo place. I'd obviously like to have it cheaper, but the risk is that I won't have it for the conference next month, or worse, in time for the wedding. That ridiculous battery life is pretty useful for conferences and excruciatingly long flights to Hawaii.

Apple's site says it will ship in 5 to 7 business days, so I'm wondering what the best course of action is. I guess if there's no traction by early next week, I should get into Apple's queue.

I don't know man, I think you're saving a lot of money by going the Amazon route. You sure you want to give up all that money just for a little convenience?
