    I placed an order last night (Friday at 9.30pm)

    It's expected delivery is Tuesday however it says it still has not shipped.

    When and where will I be able to get the UPS tracking info from?

    Anybody ever got it earlier than the expected date?

    Says ships within 24 hours so I assume it SHOULD go today.

    It's a standard build not custom

    Whether it's custom or not doesn't affect shipping estimates. If it says it's coming Tuesday... wait for Tuesday to make a thread ;)

    I ordered a MBP early on Thursday and it wasn't dispatched until Late yesterday, which was about 36hrs after ordering.

    It's a Saturday today, so yours won't be dispatched today.

    I'm not sure what the big deal is? You have an estimated delivery date of Tuesday and it's only Saturday now.

    He's probably my age(22) or younger, seems my generation has a sense of urgency and entitlement embedded in them.

    Actually there are 2 parts to being "dispatched". The first is Apple packing the order and pushing it across a magic line on their loading dock. It's considered shipped once it goes across that line.

    As for delivery services, some of them will do Saturday pickups. Especially for large customers. So it is quite possible that an order will get shipped out today and start on its journey.

    As for people asking about orders and delivery right after they're ordered, maybe we need a stickied guide to Apple order processing and shipping?

    Both Macs that I've had got to me earlier than the expected delivery date (on the tracking info). Either way, it's pretty fast shipping, just be patient.

    I'm 21

    I was brought up very well however I'm a bit impatient and I saved long and hard to pay for this so it isn't a present or gift. Just quite excited to receive it.

    Yup, we're living in the age of entitlement.

    I'm 22 as well by the way, and I think it's ridiculous the way many of my peers, and people in general, behave when it comes to having everything they want at that very moment.

    I ordered a custom MBP on Thursday, and it shipped this morning. It is coming from China, but orders can definitely ship out on weekends :)

    Wow I hope my custom MBP gets delivered that quickly! Currently Fedex estimates the 23rd for delivery (ordered the 16th, shipped today)...

    I'm in the same situation. I ordered custom on the 16th and have an estimated delivery of the 23rd.

    It'd be nice if it got here before the 23rd but I'm not worried about it. You can't complain about free shipping. It'll get here when it gets here.

    I'm assuming the machine in your sig is what you ordered? Was the only alteration the larger hard drive? That's the same machine I ordered, with the same hard drive! It's the only thing I customized, apart from a displayport adapter :)

    Yep. The HDD was the only thing I altered as well.

    Usually Apple's shipping estimates are pretty much spot on, or a bit on the pessimistic side of things.

    OP, I was just playing with you on the entitlement thing, though I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks this way.

    Ordered mine yesterday, a custom macbook pro 15" (my first mac :)), and it says that it will arrive on the 27-29th. I hope it will arrive sooner.

    Actually, the shipping part was probably FedEx. They do have a very impressive operation - it's amazing how they move tons of packages throughout their memphis hub and get them out for redelivery the next day.

    My MBP arrived in two days and that was free shipping. Was extremely impressed.
