    Don't get your hopes up too soon! Mine was prepared for shipment yesterday (same config) and today I received the confirmation letter from Apple that my product will be delivered around the 4th of May!! Previously it said 4/28.

    Currently the estimated date of delivery is 20th. So yeah I'm hoping it'll arrive soon. Oh and one more thing, I'm now in Malaysia which is just south of China. Hopefully it'll be faster.

    All UK BTO's are 5-7 days now.

    My local store still doesn't have the 15" antiglare in stock yet. I'm guessing they only really ramped up production when they announced them on Tuesday to prevent any more leaks.

    This story makes me very happy that I ended up deciding to get the 15" i7 with high-res anti-glare screen instead of the high-res glossy. I made that decision before I even knew the local Apple Store (where I had gone to compare the two screens) had the exact combination I then wanted, in stock. So, no more waiting! I walked out of the Apple Store with shiny new unibody sexy beast in my hands! :)

    Unfortunately, I was told the Apple Stores will NOT be stocking:

    15" i5/i7 with 500GB/7200rpm (not in any screen size/type)
    15" i5/i7 with standard drive with high-res glossy display

    So, if you want the faster RPM drive (or upgraded drive), you must BTO. Likewise, if you want the high-res glossy display, you must BTO.

    BTW and FWIW... I think anyone giving Apple $50 to upgrade from the 500GB 5400rpm to the 500GB 7200rpm is making a mistake. You can buy a Hitachi 500GB 7200rpm drive outright (Amazon) for $89.99. So, for $39.99 more, you can have BOTH drives.

    And, beyond that, it makes more sense to take the standard 5400rpm drive and save the $50 (or $89.99) to put toward an SSD drive. These new Core i5/i7 really smoke with an SSD drive!

    because you are in europe the shipment is probably delayed because all of the airspace is still closed off because of the volcano.

    a lot of Europeans on the "Has your MBP shipped yet?" thread have had their shipping dates extended to either the 4th or 5th of may unfortunately :(

    hopefully the airspace is opened up again soon and you all get your new MacBook Pros :):)
