Hey Gang. I notice there's a lot of buzz and questions about how shipping with the MacBooks and MacBook Pros works, so I thought I'd give you a detailed look at my shipping history from my just received MacBook. From the online Apple Store at 11:30am PDT on July 3, 2007, I ordered: MacBook (custom configuration = 2GB SDRAM, iWork preinstalled) Canon Photo All-In-One Printer iPod 30G White Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse Apple Wireless Keyboard I popped for the Expedited Shipping at $21.00. My shipping address is in Los Angeles, CA. On July 3 (same day as order) the following shipped: Canon Printer, from Ontario, CA. Delivered FedEx on July 5. iPod 30G white, from Rancho Cordova, CA. Delivered FedEx on July 6. Mouse & Keyboard Wireless, from Ontario, CA. Delivered FedEx on July 6. On July 5 (two days after order *NOTE JULY 4 HOLIDAY): MacBook, from Shanghai, China, through Anchorage, Alaska and Indianapolis, IN. Delivered FedEx on July 9. So, 5 items ordered and shipped in 4 packages from 4 locations for $21. Pretty darn good value there. I'm bummed about the carbon footprint of this order (far too many planes and trucks for these few items) but I can't argue with the speed. If you exclude the 4th of July holiday, all items arrived within 1-3 days. The printer in a remarkable 1 day. Hope that helps with any questions regarding ordering from Apple Store and Shipping. All the best.
