Sales went live but not shipping.

I doubt they had any ready to ship.
There were none available in stores and the earliest anybody could have got one was by December 30.

Any other product at Apple's online store can be shipped in 1 day.

Because feature #1 for a workstation has always been size and portability. Nevermind the expandibility. As long as it is portable and small. Wait, what? I really hope Apple will realize that they really made mac mini on steroids (mac midi?) and not a real work station so they will give us something you can put a friggin soundcard or extra storage in.

Need to know number like 2mil units ordered in 24hours. Otherwise, people think Apple made 100 units of new Mac Pro. Slipping to Months later easily.
