I believe the BTO and SSD options are causing longer ship times.

I purchased mine at around 12:15pm this afternoon and went with the standard free ground shipping.

yay!

i ordered a 2.53 myself. the status says delivers between June 9 and June 12. since i don't think it can be here in hawaii in half a day, i'm leaning more towards the 12th as my actual receive date.

so exciting! can't wait.

Ordered the 2.53Ghz base model, will upgrade to 8G + 512SSD once those get cheaper. Should arrive by friday.

A week ago I was about to order the maxed out 17" version but because of the FW reappearing on the 13" model the trade off for portability and extra cost was easy. This 13" macbook 'pro' is by no means a pro machine but with a price like that, I can live with it until Apple makes once again a real portable PRO laptop.

Cheers

How is the 13" MBP not a Pro machine? The only thing I can see that differentiates the 13" and the 15"/17" is the 9600M GT, and even the base 15" doesn't have that. Oh, that and a dedicated line in.

I'm going to be ordering a base 13" MBP as soon as I get back to the UK, along with a 3G S. Dunno whether to get a touch on education too, and then sell it on eBay.

Ordered a base model 13" last night and it shipped this morning.

Now I have to figure out what to do with my recently purchased MB Air (refurb). I have already set up a return (luckily for a full refund) but I must admit, I've fallen in love with the screen.

I can't imagine the new MB screens will be as good but if it's even somewhat close, the Air goes back.

Oh, the screen res is so 2005. GPU as you said (9600M GT is also old crap from the same century). Most of the innards are probably the same with two year old line. The FW is probably Lucent / Agere class and the lack of Express Card is one of the biggest fails... There's nothing that's really new and innovative in terms of hardware except the battery, body and maybe the trackpad.

But still, it's the best bang for the buck from Apple for a while and it's a great machine. Not a pro one I'm afraid but I like it.

Does anyone else find it odd that we haven't seen any online "hands on" photos with the new macbook pros?

Is anyone anxiously searching YouTube for videos of the new unboxing?

Can't wait to order mine tomorrow!! I was thinking of buying one about a week ago too, can't believe that I waited.

Wasn't expecting an update.

Yes! This is honestly the first mac world where I can't find any photos of the new hardware. It's really bizarre. I think maybe there was no computers on display. Guess we will have to wait for the unboxers.

Just got my shipment notification e-mail! Estimated delivery is tomorrow. I'm in California by the way.

Damn, I ordered mine right after the store went live yesterday and it still is stuck as prepared for shipping.

Just ordered!

 Macbook Pro - 2.26GHz - 2GB RAM - 250GB HDD
 16GB iPod Touch

1-3 days to ship with 250GB HDD instead of within 24 hours, but it'll be worth it in the long run. Delivery date June 12th-19th. Here's hoping for the 12th!

Typing this on my new 13" MBP!!!

I am so happy it is not even funny. It is so different coming from a TiPowerbook to this. Screen seems to have no dead pixels and looks great to me.

I was told that since the bottom is now one piece of metal, ram and HDD is no longer user upgradeable. I think no one really knew for sure at the store since this was the only one on display out of all of them and I'll be sure to check the manual.

I've never used Leopard either (tiger only) so I have a lot to learn. Also it seems the keyboard lights are on even in pretty normal lighting.

Am I the first to post with a new MBP 13"?

The HDD currently isn't upgradable because of the larger battery that isn't removable, hence no access to the HDD. The 13' Aluminum macbook had a shorter lasting, removable battery, and removable HDD.
