You can get one in 3 days from CDW.



MacBook Pro, with an aluminum unibody enclosure **As of September 15, 2008, our company has completely switched to Apple. Having used ThinkPad products for over 10 years, we had desperately tried to find just one reason to continue using these products, to no avail. We are of the view that ThinkPads are no longer premium products. We wish you the best of luck with your ThinkPad! Happy computing…**

There's no real limit if you order from Lenovo's site... some people who ordered recently have gotten lucky and had theirs ship, while I ordered 8/6 and was supposed to ship 8/22 or 8/26, but keep getting pushed back further.  If you need it soon, I'd reccommend not ordered a 9-cell battery.


edit:  mine just shipped, 5 days past my initial ETA, 10 days past my earliest ETA I was told, buty 5 days before my most recent (tatest) ETA.  Hope that helps as an example of a longer wait.  Now I'm excited though!

I ordered T400 with 4 cell battery. ETA was 15 days after order date but it was shipped on 5th day of order, so I think if you want it in a week, order with a 4 cell battery.
