    Ordered my mini on a Friday, arrived following Wed.

    Yours may vary, but you should receive a tracking #.

    Where's it coming from? If it's coming from China, it'll take awhile. ;)
    Also, unless you paid extra for expedited shipping, it's FedEx Ground service and that's not particularly speedy.

    Patience grasshopper...

    I doubt Saturday because only Fedex Home does Saturdays..not Fedex Ground.

    The courrier's estimated delivery date is almost always when it arrives, at least in the case of DHL, FedEx, etc.

    Why not trust the source?

    That thread is full of different answers, but:

    OP, is your Mac shipped via Priority Overnight or 2-Day?

    Always do next day or 1 day delivery. It's not that big of a deal when you consider the expense of the computer yourself, and you're not waiting for a week or two for it to arrive.

    It is shipped Ground; service from Sacramento to most of Pennsylvania (OP's location) is five business days. Saturday is not a business day... FedEx says that it will show up on the 23rd, and per their shipping zone map, that is correct. I really don't see how this can possibly be so difficult to comprehend.
