    AARRRGGHHH!!

    Yeah, I'm a bit impatient, but from what I see above, my white MB was ready to be picked up by Fedex on the 18th (17th local). How in the world did they miss a pickup date?? Or am I reading the above wrong?

    They don't seem all that productive over there, to be missing a full day of shipping. I mean, come on!

    I'm as objective as the next guy and trying not to be jaded on the issue, but really, how can a company miss a pickup when it was supposedly ready almost 12 hours in advance? Unless they scanned the code before it was actually ready...

    i had a similar problem, so i called fedex. they said that they are upgrading their comptuer systems, and so they were having issues with updating tracking status online. try calling them and press 0 to talk to someone. the website said today my laptop was still in alaska, but on the phone i was deligted to hear that its at my local depot already, and will arive tomorow!!!!

    online tracking might not always be accurate or up-to-date so i wouldnt be surprised when it comes early. my ipod came 'early.'

    Yeah Ive got the samething going on with my Macbook, according to FedEx its been intransit for the last 1.5-2 days with no change in status. Hopefully it shows up tommorow! Anyone know if Apples free shipping does Saturdays? Prolly not, Im just so optimistic right now. Apple teased me by sending my Nano, Office, and Mighty Mouse early, Im using my Mighty Mouse on a Windows box now, Apple hardware works great, even with Windows!

    Interesting. I had the very same thing happen to my MBP. It shipped "yesterday" in China time, so really on Wednesday for us. My tracking history has the same "after cutoff" and "delay beyond our control" messages from China. It also says the package is currently in Alaska as of yesterday at 5:15am. The website says my package is due Tuesday the 27th. If it came today I might seriously wet myself. :)

    I called FedEx as well and they said everything is normal. The delay in China was weather related and my package is going through customs today in Alaska. Boo. :)

    Well

    Mine is comming to Fresno, CA. Where is you're system going? Let's have a race to see who gets it first! Go fed-ex!! I totally thought it was leaving alaska last night because I found a flight from flightcomm that came from China, to Alaska, to Indiana, which is the next stop for our systems. After Indiana, it will goto Oakland, then to Fresno, then to my doorstep...

    My estimated date is the 27th. However, my first computer beat it's estimated ship date by 4 days, so I was hoping it would show up today. Guess we are not that lucky.

    Mine will end up in Richmond, VA. I too have a date of 6/27. I called today and found that "out of our control" deal was weather in China. I'm hopeful for Monday but I have a feeling it will really be Tuesday.

    well

    Take a look at my first laptop. It seriously hauled butt to my location. It was there, in like NO time. It was amazing. check it out above. Anyways, I also have weather issues with getting my first system out of China, which sucks. But anyways, I'd be willing to bet it makes it there by Monday. Take a look at my 2nd laptop's tracking info, and you will see what I mean.

    It sure did. I just wonder how much will happen this weekend. I mean, if it isn't at my local distribution center by Monday morning at 8am, I won't get it until Tuesday. I can't imagine the FedEx guys workin' like crazy on Sunday too. I would expect some movement tonight and tomorrow.

    Same story here about the fedex call. My MBP's status said it would arrive the day after it really came in (FedEx said Tuesday, but it arrived Monday morning). My status showed it was in Shanghai for 4 DAYS! I got mad and called them. But, all in all, it will arrive, and you will be happy. Congrats on the Mac!:p

    hey guys

    just to let you know where our notebooks are:

    Airline Federal Express
    Flight Number 80
    Departure City (Airport) Anchorage, AK (ANC)
    Departure Time 06/23/2006 04:23 PM
    Arrival City (Airport) Indianapolis, IN (IND)
    Arrival Time 06/24/2006 01:49 AM
    Remaining Flight Time 04:39
    Aircraft Type Boeing MD11
    Current Altitude 33,000 feet
    Current Groundspeed 552 mph
    Flight Status In Flight

    That is the plane that is taking my laptop from Alaska to Indianpolis. Interesting becuase it went through customs in Alaska, and my first laptop went through customs in Indianapolis. It looks like the systems should arrive Monday morning.

    Oh I am not worrying. I have my week twenty 15.4 inch 2.0 MBP with 1 GIG 80 GIG 5400. However, my new laptop, is on the way, supposidly with a revised motherboard which calls for less thermal paste. Also, it's a MBP 15.4 2.16 with 2 gig 100GIG 7200 and the 256 ati x1600 instead of the 128 ati x1600!

    So it's an upgrade, that's why I am anxious :) :)

    Well,

    looks like my laptop should be leaving indiana tonight for oakland, ca.

    Airline Federal Express
    Flight Number 2705
    Departure City (Airport) Indianapolis, IN (IND)
    Departure Time 06/24/2006 04:12 AM
    Arrival City (Airport) Oakland, CA (OAK)
    Arrival Time 06/24/2006 05:17 AM
    Remaining Flight Time 04:05 (planned)
    Aircraft Type MD10
    Current Altitude 0 feet
    Current Groundspeed 0 mph
    Flight Status Planned

    There is a planned flight that should be leaving within three hours. My laptop arrived in Indianapolis a little less than an hour ago. I got the priority shipping because it was a replacement, so do you think it might come tomorrow??? On Satuday?

    Is that possible?
