    I just recently purchased a 2.0 C2D Macbook, with 2GB RAM, 120 GB HDD. I placed my order on friday afternoon and it shipped last night (Sunday/Monday) with estimated arrival by Wednesday. I am very excited!:cool:

    no such luck

    I bought my refurb mbp last wednesday with ground shipping. The evil fedex people picked it up from apple but are keeping it in their facility in sacramento because it doesn't need to be here (boston) till thursday (est shipping date).

    So i'm happy for you but i still have many days to go...:(

    I had a great experience with the shipping. Shipped out of China but was delayed "beyond their control" so the whole process took 3 business days from the day I clicked "Place order" until it was at my door step. I'm impressed..

    Though I opted for overnight shipping for my second Macbook cause I didn't want to wait 3 business days again :p

    If you have items in your order that are shipped in 3-4 weeks would that delay your entire order? or would those just ship later?

    They ship later. Apple says, "Items are shipped separately as they become available." Something like that.

    I"m sure there's one of these evil fedex clerks sitting there holding your box and laughing.

    THAT MAKES TONS OF SENSE!

    Any chance its coming via ground and its between points or its on a truck ... hmmm that makes sense! wait its much more likely they have a special pile of boxes that they just don't move for the fun of it.

    yup yup i am pleased as well. took 3 days for my refurb to get here via fed ex ground

    only thing they could possibly fix is the lil glitch of the tracking not showing up in fed ex's window until the next day... had me freaking out for a second when it said it could not find my package... but it all of a sudden pops up completely updated the next day

    I just checked and everything is going as planned. It went from China, to Anchorage, to Inndiapolis, to Memphis, where it just left. It should go to a town called Sikeston like 30mins away and be delivered to me by 10:30 tomorrow morning :D. The only bad thing is that I will have to wait until 3:00 when school is out to play with it. I would skip but i have too many test tomorrow :(

    Yeah i thought as much. I figured that the website was just behind, so I called a fedex rep and thats what she told me. She said that since it wasn't due to be delivered till Feb 1st, it wouldn't be.

    Which of course is ridiculous, I've had plenty of fedex packages that were delivered before the stated outside limit. I just hope they didn't lose it. There has been no update since last Thursday on their web site.

    My MBP took 5 days to process/build and 1.5 days to receive. They quoted me 5-7 days shipping but it arrived here practically overnight =).

    Anything FedExed from China is Air, so all packages shouldn't take more than 3 days.

    Same here! I was wondering when the heck they were actually going to deliever it! I've been checking the freaking FedEx site way too many times!!

    I chose ground shipping cause I won't be able to see if for a week anyway until I pick it up at my bf's house anyway... damn midterms

    But I think your comp and mine will enjoy the ride together. Mine's getting off the "bus" in Philly tho

    yeah, my experience with buying a refurb has been less than exciting also. Pitty, I always bragged on how fast they picked up and delivered my iBook for repairs.....

    The most amazing case I have experience was an order which I placed on the 22th for a refurbished MB and Apple shipping it overnight at their expense just so it arrives on the Saturday before Christmas. :p
