    Hi,

    My aunt is currently visiting the US and yesterday I ordered a cto MBP to her visiting address.
    She leaves the country around 3 p.m. on Friday and I want to know what my chances are that she receives my MBP in time. She resides in Virginia and my order status say's that my MBP is going to ship in the next 1-3 business days and delivered within 2-3 business days. I reckon that if Apple ships my MBP in 1-2 days I'm good. But usually how fast does Apple's warehouse ship cto MBP's?

    Btw i ordered the 13 inch 2,26 ghz with 4 GB memory and 320 GB harddrive.

    I ordered mine on Wednesday August 12th and it arrived at my doorstep Friday August 14th. :D Was pretty happy with that. Not sure if your configuration might delay it a bit, I just customized the ram, looks like you did the ram and hd.

    I would really doubt that anyone has ordered enough of them to sit around and construct a confidence interval with all of the variables included for the delivery to your location...

    It will take longer to get to the east coast than the west; shipping will almost certainly take the three days.

    I was thinking that the members that bought a cto MBP could come in here and share their experience. I'm more worried when they are going to ship it instead of how long the shipping will take. But i don't know, maybe i should be worried about them both.

    I ordered a 2.53 GHz with a 500 GB HDD Monday morning. It shipped from Shanghai Wednesday, and was delivered to me in CA Friday morning.

    Ordered mine on August 10th and it just got to the local FedEx center this morning the 17th. Going to pick it up at lunch! Although with hindsight being 20/20 i would have just paid the $15 bucks for the faster shipping...oh well.

    I ordered mine on Monday for the Dev Store. Upgraded the HD to the 7200. Didn't ship until Saturday and I had the upgrade shipping. Apple and I have had some not so nice conversations because I leave on Wednesday which is the expected arrival date.
