If they don't come out with white, they won't be giving you a black one to exchange when white comes out.... they'll just make you wait til they come in, or you can cancel that order and get a black one. So you will get what you pre-ordered, just maybe not on the 24th.I'm not sure what the Apple store is saying. It's a crap shoot, but at least I pre-ordered it and it clearly states on my receipt that I ordered white so I'm hoping that if they don?t come out I can exchange when they do since I didn?t get what I pre-ordered. We shall see. I just know I cant wait until next Thursday!!!!
