Anyone know how long it will take for Amazon to ship their M3's?
No way I'd order something this expensive from Amazon.

100% agree.
I ordered Airpods 3rd Gen from Amazon - direct, not a third party seller.
Almost 2 years later I upgraded my iPhone and could no longer connect my Airpods.
Went to Apple who told me my Airpods looked like astonishingly good clones - in fact they had lots of replacements under the same serial number already! So it was a genuine serial, but cloned on lots of Airpods!

Went back to Amazon after 18 months or so of ownership and complained.
They had the cheek to ask me to send them back in for repair!!!
Told them I didn't want a repair, I wanted an official GENUINE set of Airpods, that I had originally paid for! I had been using clones for teh last 18 months thinking I had purchased legitimate Airpods!

In the end I just got them refunded, and purchased replacements directly from Apple!
I ordered an Apple watch Series 9 from them a few months ago. What I received was a used Apple Watch Series 4. Someone had taken the Series 9 out of the box and put their old Series 4 in there thinking Amazon wouldn't notice, and they didn't (if they even checked what was returned). I filed a claim and returned the watch, and Amazon refused to give me a refund saying that I sent back the wrong watch to them. I couldn't believe it. The very reason I was returning the watch is what I was being accused of doing.

I ended up filing a chargeback with my credit card company. Amazon fought it, and lost. Its why I swear by American Express. They have always done right by me and any time a retailer has given me problems they sort it out for me. Since then I've decided to never order anything expensive from Amazon again.

I've gotten so many fake things from amazon (and this was years ago) that I stopped shopping with them altogether. Same thing as you, it was listed as sale from Amazon but it was fake. (Did you know counterfeit condoms are a thing? I learned that from a purchase on Amazon!)

Just sold my iPad Pro 12.9", which I used to use mobile, while a MBP16 stays on my desk for heavier work.

I used to use the iPad with the Apple Magic Keyboard etc - and I found I never touched the screen. Always ended up using it like a laptop anyways, and found it a little restricting with some things I wanted to do, hence will go back to full OSX with a MacBook Air 13. Most likely the 16GB/512SSD model considering I get Edu discount. Will use the Air around the house and mobile, and the MBP16 can continue to stay on my desk ;)

I just wish they’d stock the 16GB/512GB configuration in store. It’s clearly popular but order only.
Try configuring the mid-tier 8/512 model up to 16GB, worked for me!
