    I bought a CTO mac pro on April 12 2011 which is Tuesday but its been 3 days now since i ordered it but up to now it says that its not shipped yet....i know it says that it will be shipped between 3-5 business days and i will receive it on april 18-21 but my question is Wed, Thurs and Fri is the first 3 business days and Monday and Tuesday next week is the 4-5th business days which is the 18-19th of the month 20-21st is wed and thurs....im wondering if the product is coming from china will i be able to receive it still between those estimated days? just wondering coz i dont know if i should call apple now or wait till they fail to deliver it on those date that they say.

    here is the acknowledgement letter that they sent me:

    Custom configuration

    One 3.33GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
    3GB (3x1GB)
    ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
    1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s

    Just call Apple.

    Also, CTO MacPro's are assembled in America.

    It will likely arrive by April 21st if that's what Apple says.

    Beyond that, no idea.

    ok, i thought it'll come from china coz majority of the thread that i read says that the CTO mac that they bought came from china. but anyways, thanks for the insight.

    i guess ill just wait till those date and if they fail to deliver it ill just call them.

    thanks for replying guys.

    My 2009 model was assembled in USA and shipped from Irving, TX.

    When we ordered a lab full of iMacs recently, they were CTO and "assembled" in USA because they had the long keyboards and wired mice.

    if the CTO mac are assembled in states then pretty much it'll be delivered to me between those dates, coz i ordered a monitor from dell after i ordered my mac pro and purolator already called and told me that ill be expecting my package on monday but thats a monitor which they have it in stock.

    anyways, thanks. im just a bit excited thats why and i thought maybe there's a way for me to speed things up if i bitch and complain to them. lol

    Are you sure about that? Check CoconutIdentityCard, that displays where your Mac has been assembled.

    i know apple have different source where they build the CTO macs....what im thinking since people are getting their CTO macs from different country or state i guess they based it on how busy the other facility. im just assuming

    Maybe it's some sort of Frankenmac (built out of replacement parts in a CTO facility when they were short on base systems, and the origin data wasn't generated).

    Should I be scared of my Mac Pro now? Is it going to kill me in the middle of the night or anything? :)
