17 inch MB Pro delayed
Apple has pushed back ship dates for the new 17-inch aluminum-unibody MacBook Pro that was unveiled at the Macworld Expo early in January. "Wrapping up the new 17-inch MacBook Pro is taking a few days longer than we projected," explained a message sent to customers that pre-ordered the notebooks. "As a result, we will be unable to ship your 17-inch MacBook Pro until February 19, 2009." The exact reason for the delay remains unknown.
New orders are expected to arrive in three to four weeks for the gloss-screen configuration, while the matte display is expected to ship in four to five weeks.
