    Just ordered a non retina MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM, i7, and 128GB SSD. It tells me my arrival date is the 25th-27th. I think this is a long time and is there any chance it would come early? I needed it by the 22nd.

    I don't think anyone here has the power to make it go faster. You could call Apple though and ask?

    You just ordered the first of that configuration this year

    I'm surprised it's not longer to be honest, I can't imagine they sell too many of the old cMBP's any more and certainly no one in their right mind would pay for the apple upgrades rather than do it themselves for a fraction of the cost.

    Apple is pretty good with their estimates, so I'd say its probably accurate

    I have to differ with this, I ordered my (base) mid-2012 cMBP July 7, 2013 and Apple said that it would take 6 days to get. Needless to say, I got it the next day (with the free shipping!). I live in Southern MD and it came from somewhere in PA.

    It may have been a screw up on Apple's part though, I may have gotten someone else's next day shipping.

    I usually order from someone on the AppleInsider price list to save a few bucks. My current rMBP is from Adorama, was $600 off, no tax or shipping, and included free AppleCare.

    Ordering directly from Apple can be the most expensive route, even with ed or business discounts.

    Usually it does arrive earlier, atleast for me, but its not guaranteed.
