    My new 17 inch MBP is supposed to ship to me on the 9th. Then it says delivery on the 17th. I have ordered from apple before and it only takes them 1 day to get to me because i live in MD and it ships from PA. Are these shipping from a different warehouse or something. I am hoping that as in the past, if it ships on the 9th, ill have it by the 10th. An one have any thoughts?

    Most likely, its coming from China - typically takes 2-3 days once its shipped.

    If its BTO, its definately coming from Shanghai. Usually takes 7 days to get to Tennessee (I'm in TN) from there, so I'd say its about the same for MD; it'll come through Indianapolis or Memphis, then to your area.

    Only took 2 days to get to me, I live in the Atlanta area.

    China--Alaska---Indianapolis---Atlanta--my house

    I think it all depends on how long it is on the ground. Mine went about 20 miles from the airport to my house. So it you live close to a big airport you are more likely to get it quicker.
