Zach was taken care of by Apple (I guess it’s now clear Apple wins for service as well as hardware design). I got a few days tacked onto my ordeal as my laptop is expected to ship out a few days later now. Unfortunately for me, there is no “store” to go to. My laptop still needs to be assembled, and from what I’m told there is a “parts constraint”. So if anyone out there is working for a company who owes Lenovo/IBM parts: get working!
