    There have been a number of people talking about receiving their new MB/MBPs after only a couple of days and a fair number of comments on people waiting for a period of time or still waiting for arrival.

    Could you post your purchase/delivery-pickup experience and include the following information if you can:

    1) Did you order online, at an Apple Store, or at an Apple Reseller?
    2) If you ordered at a store did you pick it up right away?
    3) What date did you order?
    4) What date did you receive?
    5) Is this a Custom order?
    6) Location of delivery

    This may help some people who have been wondering if they are experiencing abnormal delays in ordering. I'll compile the data after every 50 posts to provide averages.

    And if you want to you can provide the details as to what you ordered. (Suggested by Igantius)

    Average wait time to receive an order: 7 days
