    Just woke to an email informing me my credit card has been charged for my 1.3 space grey 256mb MacBook. My original ship date was May8-15. Here is to hoping shipping information is coming shortly!!

    I can't see the actual charges until a few days after they are done :/ I hope mine will be sooner too :)

    My CC was charged on 4/12 but it could have been that I also ordered the USB-C AV adapter on the same order which I already received. Also, I don't know if it matters, but I used a gift card to cover part of the purchase

    Mine still has the same ship date of May 8-15 to USA. :(

    Mine was charged a few days ago for a 1.3 configuration. It must be a pre-charge authorization, the ship date is still late May - early June. It will likely disappear in a few days.

    Mine was also charged, but I think BTO's are charged before they ship (when they start production).

    Yup, this is true. Mine also got charged (USA) so maybe we'll see these things shipping out next week. It would definitely be a pleasant surprise.

    I was charged this morning, too... ship date is 5/8 - 5/15. (USA)

    Do you think they're charging BTO now because they're starting to produce them, or because they're actually getting ready to ship. (I know it's probably that they're starting to build them, but I still hope it's the latter!) What have they done in the past, as far as charging BTOs?

    I think that usually they bill the credit card just before they ship, but obviously that's not the case since I was billed on 4/12 and my order status hasn't changed.

    I don't know what they are doing now!

    I would wager that assembly of components, qa, and packaging and shipment prep takes less than a day for this computer. So it's really just a technicality, these babies are shipping very soon!

    Mine says late May or June. I find it hard to believe it's suddenly going to be shipping soon. I also can't believe it's the actual charge, Apple never does the real charge until shipping. What I've seen in the past is they pre-charge to make sure the credit is valid, then that charge goes away in a few days. Then they make the final actual charge when the unit ships.

    Mine is appearing in the pending charges. Looks like the real charge to me. I'll post back in a few days if it turns out not to be.

    Mine has been there for three days now. My status still says processing and expected May 21 - June 4. I've never had an order have the date change this much and never seen an order ship without going through preparing to ship first.

    Mine shows the full charge pending too. I suspect this will change to an actual charge within a day or so. We'll see.
