    Yep. My iPod Touch and Photoshop CS5 shipped out today.

    No Mac Pro yet :(

    My iPod shipped today but still no Mac Pro. I also got the 4-year AppleCare but no shipment on that haha. Wouldn't the shipment of the AppleCare mean that your Mac Pro has now been auto-enrolled for AppleCare and will ship very soon?

    No, because you have to manually enroll AppleCare when you receive the AppleCare box.

    That's not what they told me on the chat thing. If you buy it with the computer then it is auto-enrollment. If you buy it separately then you enroll it with the box.

    Go customize a Mac Pro and this is what AppleCare says at the bottom:

    "When you purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan and your computer at the same time, you'll be automatically registered in the plan."

    Ohhh, nice! Didn't know that, sorry. I've always purchased my Apple Care separately at a different time.

    Hey man, maybe that does mean something if you start to see your AppleCare being "prepared for shipment". Keep on the lookout and let us know.

    I don't know about AppleCare, but isn't it linked to the serial number of the product?

    So for AppleCare to be registered, they would have to already have a machine sitting around at least partially built?

    I just looked and my AppleCare now says delivered, which must mean my system is at least partially done, like the other guy said. Anybody else have theirs say delivered as well?

    I got the email from Apple Care today, and it states the extended warranty began YESTERDAY; however, my Mac Pro has an estimated date of arrive of 10 september.

    It's the first time I've purchased Apple Care, but, is this correct? One would think that the warranty period should begin the day you receive the product. Apple is just being cheap "stealing" fifteen days of coverage.
