    It's already two days and all it just said is it's processing. It's a custom i7 8GB RAM. How long is this going to take?

    Miss Cleo FTW:D

    We should have a default Miss Cleo thread at the top for all "shipping time" and "What's best for me?" questions.

    :D

    All the following would answer the, "Will my MBA arrive within a week?", question.

    ● It is certain
    ● It is decidedly so
    ● Without a doubt
    ● Yes – definitely
    ● You may rely on it
    ● As I see it, yes
    ● Most likely
    ● Outlook good
    ● Yes
    ● Signs point to yes
    ● Reply hazy, try again
    ● Ask again later
    ● Better not tell you now
    ● Cannot predict now
    ● Concentrate and ask again
    ● Don't count on it
    ● My reply is no
    ● My sources say no
    ● Outlook not so good
    ● Very doubtful

    I ordered one Thursday afternoon (Eastern Time, North America) and it flipped over to "shipped" late Friday night. But it stayed in China all weekend. It *may* have left this morning. I'll see in a few hours.

    Mine was also 8GB, I7

    If you ordered it through the online Apple Store (U.S.), you should have seen a shipping estimate date when you placed the order. The shipment originates in China, so it will ship late night / early morning in the U.S. time zones.

    My built-to-order MacBook air shipped 2 and a half days after I ordered it (a new model) last month.

    I ordered my Air on a Thursday evening and it was at my door in 8 days.

    1 -3 weeks. I know it states 1 -3 shipping days but that means 1 -3 days to ship it to the delivery provider who can then take 1 -2 weeks as you can see in the following image where a new machine was ordered on the 13th and estimated delivery date is the 22nd.

    Wow. I ordered refurbished and got it in less than a week. I guess just another added perk of going refurb...

    Of course you'd be waiting just as long for the configuration I ordered to show up on the refurb site. (11 inch, i7, 8GB, 256GB)

    I got my 11" i7/8gb/512gb MBA at B&H Photo while in NYC in 2013, took about 10 minutes. ;). Have not checked them recently since I'm not in the market, but in the past they've typically had just about all configurations in stock. When I got mine, B&H was literally the only place with the model I wanted in stock, including all the Apple Stores.

    The OP started this thread almost four years ago. I wonder if he ever received his MBA.

    We all have way too much time on our hands.

    Great to reactivate a dormant thread with two of my favorite posters!
