    Hey!

    I ordered my MBA :
    1.8GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7
    4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    128GB Flash Storage
    KEYBOARD/USER'S GUIDE
    COUNTRY KIT

    Was wondering if any customized models have been sent out yet (not from store)

    Thanks!
    M.

    I was going to make a thread about this, perhaps a "has your CTO Air been shipped/delivered?"

    I'm waiting for my 11-inch ultimate to ship. I ordered expedited shipping, so it should be sent out by tomorrow.

    Expedited shipping not an option for me..

    My current MBA (1st generation) broke on me 12 hrs after I ordered my new one..

    Really? Must be a USA-only option then. Apple just finally charged my card for the full amount, so maybe this is a sign that it will be shipping tonight/tomorrow. My delivery estimate is between Tuesday and Thursday, I'm hoping for Monday or Tuesday.

    Mine hasnt shipped yet, ordered it yesterday morning. I am hoping maybe by tomorrow. I regret not buying it in stores, but I didnt think they would carry the ultimate 13 inch models.

    I'm in the USA and I didn't get that option either. I ordered 30 minutes past eight (Eastern).
    Same :( but at least I'll be working my butt off so I can take the day off (freelancer).

    Ordered same spec within 1hr of release. Still no signs of shipping and not expected to deliver until 5th August!!!!


    Some times it's a pain living in a remote third world country... :( ;)

    I also ordered the MBA 13 Ultimate within hours of it being released. Order said shipped within 3 business days and my credit card company has confirmed that the money has been charged to the card.

    However, expected delivery date is 3 August 2011....such a long time to wait...sigh!!

    By my estimates, 3 business days (not counting 20/7) technically should ship out on 25 July - even with a buffer of another day, 26 July. CTO units are usually shipped out of China (at least my last MBP did) and takes about 4 days to get here - which should take it up to 29/30 July. Being the weekend, DHL will probably deliver on Monday 1st. I guess they are building in some buffer just in case the demand for the CTO units a overwhelming.

    In any case, even the local stores here aren't getting their MBA's unit next week (no exact date given). Hopefully I'll get mine even before they're available in the local stores here.

    Mine has not been shipped yet either. I ordered within one hour of the new MBAs being released. My estimated delivery date is 2nd August (I live in the UK).

    I'm not too worried about the delivery date, the only thing I'm worried about is ending up with a Toshiba SSD instead of a Samsung one :eek:

    Seems like all the UK CTO models will be arriving on the 2nd August, as mine is too. Card has been charged. That said, Apple are usually conservative with their delivery estimates from China, so it may be early.

    Like the above poster, really wanting a Samsung SSD.

    My CTO status has now changed to "Prepared for Shipment" with an estimated date of 2nd August. This would of been 29th July, if I didn't take up the £65 gift voucher.

    Strange that the iTunes voucher adds such a delay. Assuming that's due to merge-in-transit rather than straight delivery? Mine's still on Not Shipped, but if there's movement it'll change sometime soon.

    My 13" i7 256 GB went to Prepared for Shipment. Still haven't gotten a confirmation email though.

    Apples ship date math can be a bit fuzzy at times. Think 2 + 3 = @5, rather than 2 + 3 = 5. In reality their ship date math is probably no worse than anyone else's, were just focused on it more.

    My 13" ultimate is now prepared, it's 7:30am so I think it's safe to assume it will ship tonight. With 2-3 day shipping and FedEx working on Saturday, it should be here Monday or Tuesday :D Though their website says Tuesday or Wednesday. Does FedEx not count Saturday anymore? Or is this part of the "bad shipping calculation"?

    Click the shipping number, FedEx has never gotten it wrong for me. And I get about a shipment a week from them.

    Doesn't say when the expected delivery is even when I go to the DHL site and track it from there.

    Good to hear others have seen theirs go to prepared for shipment. Since mine went to that last night, it should be sent out today. I'm anxious to see what the estimate delivery date will be.
