    I ordered my MBP on Monday and my order status currently shows "Prepared for Shipment." Since I assume it is coming out of China, should I expect Monday to be when it ships out (since it is now Saturday in Shanghai)? It got the that status at some point yesterday, and I am really anxious to get my new machine. It is a 2.2 CTO Matte Screen.

    Any idea on where that would ship from, and how long until it shows as actually shipped?

    I ordered a MBP 2.2 w/Matte, only upgrade being the 160gb 5400rpm HD. I placed the order Tuesday, went into "prepared for shipment" during the afternoon yesterday and shipped at 3am this morning(EST).

    So you ordered the exact same machine as me a day later, and it shipped out earlier? :mad: Where are you located? I'm in Ohio.

    I guess I'll have to call Apple and complain!

    Did the status say where the machine shipped from? Is is coming from Shanghai?

    The Macbook I'm writing this on was "prepared for shipment" when I went to sleep last night, then I woke this morning to the postman buzzing on the door with it in his hands.

    On a side note, it has one dead pixel an inch down from the middle of the screen and they're sending me a new one on Monday. (Seems a better response than most people with dead pixels have had).

    I would be confused too. I'm on the East Coast. Yes it is coming from Shanghai. Honestly I would see if anything changes by the end of the day, and remember Shanghai is on the opposite schedule of us(ie I believe they are 12 hours different).

    And from what some people say, what is online isn't always 100% accurate so yours might have shipped too.

    The exact one I ordered is in my sig. And I'm also anxiously awaiting it.

    i dont get it. I ordered my 2.2 MBP last Saturday (a week ago) and it STILL says "not yet shipped". The only modification I made was choosing the glossy screen instead of the matte screen. I'm a little concerned that it still hasnt shipped yet, considering I got my printer and ipod on Tuesday. Anyone know if there was a shortage of glossy screens? or maybe if there is somewhere I can check/call for more detailed info than the "Order Status" page?

    I ordered a 2.2 MBP with a Glossy screen and a 160GB HD last wednesday (June 20th) and I saw the "Prepared for Shipment" today, 7 days later. My friend ordered the same thing, except he chose a matte screen, and he got his MBP in 5 days.
