    I'm planning on ordering my Macbook from Apple and was wondering how long the shipping time is...

    That's pretty good, so if I order Monday I should get it by Friday. Thanks!

    When you place your order, they will quote you an estimated ship time. If you do a build to order (add RAM, larger HD), it will add time.

    I ordered Refurb Alum 2.0GHz Macbook and it took about 2~3days
    I was very surprised when it came cause the receipt said that I should be expecting it on the first or second week of Feb.

    Yeah, I ordered mine on the Thursday after they were released, and got it on the next Tuesday. 3 shipping days.

    Mine took 4 days as well. I think it might be faster if you customize it. If I understood it correctly, when you order a customized computer, it is shipped from the plant in China to you. If there is not customization involved, it is shipped from the US. I bought mine with added RAM. In 2006, the MacBook came with only 512 MB of memory. With hindsight, I should have bought memory modules from a third-party (way cheaper).
