Apple Posts Deadlines For Christmas Eve Shipping

Are you hoping to buy some last minute gear from Apple before the holidays, but the check hasn’t quite cleared yet? Apple just announced their holiday shipping deadlines this year. But how late can you push your last minute shopping out to?

If you want a custom Mac, you’ll need to move fast: tomorrow’s your last day to get one before Christmas with free 2-3 day shipping.

If you want an engraved iPod or iPad, you have until the 19th.

If you’re willing to just buy an off-the-shelf Mac, iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS, or Apple TV, you need to order by December 21st.

Unfortunately, if you wanted to order an iPhone 4S online as a Christmas gift, you’re already too late: December 5th was the last time you could order one online in time for the holidays.
