Anyone getting shipment notifications yet for the new MM? Mine is still PTS and Nov. 7th estimate, ordered right after announcement.

Nice! I wonder if the units are already stateside? Cant be in china with that timeframe right?
I believe they must be in the states... But I could be wrong. Logistics are incredible these days. I bought a BTO Mac Pro several years ago and it shipped in 3 days from Shanghai to California.

No it doesn't show it on the order page. But I saw it on one screen during the purchase. I thought WOW 1 day from ship to deliver? It must be very close to me already....

Once I get the email that it shipped I hope it has a tracking # so I can see where it came from. Maybe Elk Grove, CA? I've had other Apple products shipped from there.

See all those trucks lined up ? Ready to Rock & Roll.... :D

Yours could ship tomorrow depending on where you live. But, none will be delivered before the 7th., I think, but I could be wrong.

I used to have a boss long ago that would say...

Yea, I'll be doing a Mini-Teardown before iFIXit. But only to install the 32GB of RAM I have sitting here on my desk.

I'm going to install the RAM before I hit the power button for the first time. :D
You're the man! Will keep my eyes peeled for your analysis, my BTO won't arrive till the 12th...

interesting my BTO (i7, 32gb, 1tb) is scheduled for the 7th, when did you order?
On Thursday morning UK time. Times had slipped by Weds afternoon. Still hoping shipping gets bumped up a bit (as it often happens with Apple orders) and I get it end of this coming week.

THIS is awesome! I, as I'm sure are others, can't wait to hear about your discoveries when opening it up.

I would be right there with you, but my wife INSISTED I sell my Mac Pro before purchasing another computer...

I ordered an iPad Pro 11 and a Mini. One package shipped on 11/2 and the other on 11/3. One is still in China and the other in Hong Kong, but they've both definitely been in transit since those dates. They started out in mainland China. I can't tell which is which, as one is 1.2kg and the other is 1.4kg.

The Apple website still says "preparing to ship" but that's not true.

Ha... Reminded me of something that happened to me long ago. (Sneaking something past the Wife)

1987 I had an Apple IIGS that I felt needed a hard drive upgrade. I got home from work about 2 hours before my wife, so I figured I'd pull a fast one. Had the drive delivered and it was installed and all the evidence was cleaned up before she got home. I think, very cool, I pulled it off.

Then she jumps on the computer and after a few minutes she called me into the room. She said "Come here and listen to this, the computer sounds different." She actually noticed the difference in sound of one hard drive to the other !!!!

I learned: Never underestimate a woman!

I played dumb and never fessed up. :D
