I ask because I'm wondering exactly how annoyed I should be. I ordered one of the new minis yesterday, and added a remote to the CTO page. It then sat at the "preparing" stage until this evening, at which point it shipped... direct from Shenzhen. Now, maybe they're all shipping from the factory at this point, in which case no complaints. But since the same model is showing "ships in 24 hours" if I DON'T add a remote, and 1-3 days if I do, I'll be rather miffed if they've just delayed my order by about four days to drop a remote in the box. A remote, further, that I could have just ordered separately for exactly the same price had I noticed the difference in ship times. And yes, I know a couple days doesn't make any difference in the grand scheme of things, but I'm a Mac-lover, and besides, it's more fuel efficient to stick the thing on a ship, so if there's already a pile of stock "in town" I'd prefer one of those. Anybody else order one without any modifications?
