    I placed an refurbished MBA 11.6 just abou 20 minutes ago on 2/8/2011.

    I am just wondering how long it will take me to get it.

    How long did it take you guys to receive your refurbished MBA? I hope I get it by this week. Today is end of Tuesday. Maybe by Saturday? Perhaps????

    May I ask why? You were not happy with the product or this refurbished unit was crap?

    The MBA I received made a clicking noise when I turned it on....it almost sounded like a hard drive.

    So to make sure I understand. Does this noise happens when you turn it on only? Or the sound goes on and on and on?

    I had that kind of problem with my old HP laptop. The hard drive was making noise constantly.

    How are you guys getting overnight and two day shipping? i order my refurb on Feb 4th and was told I would get it until the 11th about 7 days later... I asked about overnight shipping and he said it wouldnt make sence to get because it stays at the factory (or where ever it is) to have test ran on it first before shipping...

    You guys are talking about REFURB MBA right? Not new because with new you can get faster delivery. Refurb I was told its a different process. Maybe he didn't know what he was talking about. Oh well maybe I'll get it before I leave for vacation after all....fingers cross

    Why would you be "told". If you go to the refurb site, and place an order, you have the option to pay extra for over night or 2 day delivery.

    Mine took nearly two weeks to Phoenix. FedEx ground is slow, doesn't deliver on Mondays, and this was over New Years Day, so kind of a perfect storm for a long delivery time.

    My refurb 13" MBA shipped out of PA on Feb03, arriving CA Feb10. Supposedly, the snow in Memphis slowed down some of Fedex shipments.

    Yes, refurb 13" base model; ordered online at 4:30 a.m. Monday, received 11:00 a.m. Thursday via normal free shipping. Sorry to hear yours isn't as fast.

    Ordered last night at like 10PM eastern. Mine shipped out today. Fed ex will deliver it tomorrow. Can't wait.

    However, it seems like it depends on which model you ordered. If you order 1.4GHz/4GB/64GB SSD model, then you are in for a longer wait. That model is the most popular one.
