Haha i was wondering the same

I got a base i7 Mini for Christmas/Birthday, returned it, and then ordered one with the Fusion Drive from the Apple Store on December 28th (Friday). It said 3-5 days shipping and 7-10 days for Delivery.

As of today (Thursday January 3rd), the UPS shipping from China expects delivery by 10:30am Friday January 4th (tomorrow).

Are these projected/expected dates pretty reliable? Getting excited and would love to have it before the weekend to setup, etc. before work on Monday.

Just curious why you didn't go ahead and make your own Fusion drive?

Once it gets into the hands of UPS or FedEx, you can usually count on the expected delivery dates. My three orders that have shipped straight from China have all come via FedEx. Two were right on, and one was a day early. (It must have caught a lucky plane, because it jumped straight from the island to Memphis.)

You might find this funny, but I got some other Apple Gift Cards for Christmas/Birthday and figured I'd just do it. Didn't really have a need for anything else, and it worth it to me to use the cards up and not spend $$$ out of pocket.

No that makes perfect sense since you had gift cards. I was just curious if there was some other reasoning. Sounds like a good decision.
