    As of 12:30 it says prepared to ship. How long do you guys think it will be until they actually ship it or it is picked up. I hope it is actually in the united states and not in Kunshan China.....

    If its build to order, it will ship from China. If it's stock model, it's possible that they are already sitting in warehouse at USA

    It took a week for me but I guess there's more planes flying to USA than to Finland. You can check the delivery date from your carriers web site

    I'd say five to seven days given my experience. But who knows besides FedEx?

    Well they made their computers cheaper, which allowed me to upgrade the hard drive even more. It is 8:30 and it still says prepared to ship. When the hell are they (FedEx or UPS) going to venture out to the warehouse to pick it up. I neeeeeeeddd it. I am going out of town on the 19th. I need it here by then. At least I will be back in time for the printer to come in. It says that the printer will ship the 22 and then arrive on the 24. I have to go out of town again however on the 25 and 26. The 2-3 day shipping better get it here quickly or I am going to be pissed................ So, basically my computer has been in "prepared to ship" status for 8 hours. That is on the verge of ridiculous. Unless, since it might ship out of China it probably isn't time for them to be up and moving yet??? Well actually, shouldn't it be 9:40 AM over there?? Tuesday, my iPod was picked up at like 12:00 pm in China. So I guess that kind of makes sense. I will check back in a few hours and post if it is shipped. That way others can get a general idea of when their macbooks will be shipped out of China.

    Ok, this is what my FedEx page looks like... [​IMG]

    What does shipment information sent to FedEx mean? Has this left China?

    I ordered an iPod Touch with engraving and a MacBook Pro with extra Ram. Will they come in separate shipments or together?

    SAMMMEEE HERRRE. I am super impatient for this thing to come in. Like I know the iPod touch will come in sooner but I am much more impatient for the MBP than I am for the iPod. Like this wait is literally killing me. I am constantly checking my order status, email, and fedex tracking page. I click refresh like every two hours. Ugh... I wish I could fast forward time. It's not like there is anything important going on in my life right now anyway... the anticipation of the computer gives me reason to wake up in the morning.. LOL

    lol im impacient just to place my order which is amazing considering that i never ever buy nething (obviously the reason i hav money to spend on a MBP)..as soon as i place my order though i will def be in the same boat..and yep anticipation is what makes life worth living LOL. ya i hav an iphone so i think i might be the only person who goes for the Nano just so i can hav somthin that i dont hav to mess with the screen and stuff when im cuttin the grass. and im lovin the new look they have along with the silver to match my soon to be new MBP and the 20 yr later revision of my 4GB mini lol.
