    I wish I would have known the stuff was coming from CHINA. International shipments take forever amd I could have driven to the Apple Store and picked it up instead of waiting 10 days.

    Live and learn about the traps of online shopping.

    Is there a way to see where stuff is coming from? Wireless keyboard took 3 days. Both orders said 3-5 days when I placed them but the chargers came from CHINA.

    Thanks

    A great number of Apple products, including all BTO MacBook Pros, are shipped from China. This is nothing new.

    yup, Apple manufactures just about all its products in China. Have you called to check if you can still cancel the order?

    Do you know why you never saw people use Thinkpad in USA, which was the best laptop before it was bought by Chinese? Because Thinkpad was assembled and shipped from Hong Kong.

    Huh? A ton of people used IBM ThinkPad's in the USA. (if that's what you're talking about, because I'm having trouble understanding what your post is trying to say...)
