    I'm curious as to how fast Apple ships? Does it come from China? If I order one right now, does saturday count as a business day? Is it worth paying $50 for the expedited shipping?

    I'm just trying to estimate when it would arrive as I have work and long hours of school all week this semester.. So I want to make sure I'll be home to at least receive it.

    When it ships Apple will give you a delivery date/timeframe.

    I'd say fast ship should take about a week to be built, shipped and delivered. normal delivery should take about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks.

    Ordered on Monday and delivered on the following Monday. Shipped from Texas.

    I did not get a "prepared for shipment" status update. Just went from ordered to shipped.

    cheers

    Mine also shipped from Texas. Previous Macbook Pros and PowerMac I've ordered always showed fedex from China to Alaska to destination.

    This recent Mac Pro started in Texas. Apple must be shipping them in bulk first to US distribution centers.

    Apple has a large facility in Irving Tx. I believe they do the final MP BTO assembly there. There's also a training center at the Irving facility.............. hopefully not training on the MP's. ;)

    You can download a signature release form so that the FedEx driver can leave the MP without an in-person sig. That's what I did.

    cheers
