    I ordered my MBP (2.2GHz) on Friday evening. Wanted to make sure that Leopard would at least be included in the box (likely not pre-installed, but that's fine with me).

    I received an email from Apple stating that it would ship sometime on the 29th or 30th of Oct, and estimated delivery was Nov. 6-9 (to Calgary, AB). That's all well and good; I've waited this long for it, a few more days won't kill me, even if they do seem like years.

    Needless to say, I was *quite* pleasantly surprised when I found out that, not only was it shipped yesterday morning, but its also estimated to be delivered by tomorrow afternoon! :D

    Anybody else having the same sort of luck with these shipping dates to different parts of the world?

    I so wish. Mine was suppose to ship as soon as FedEx confirmed my return of my first one. Its still says ready to ship but no ship date. Which irritates me b/c It will end up being a full week before I get my 2nd one. If number 2 has yellow screen, I'll just do a return b/c I won't have it for my big trip end of this month and I'll have to just pick up a Macbook to play with until they update the screens.

    I ordered my MBP on Saturday. Last night the Apple store changed the status to "prepared for shipment", and it said "shipped" this morning. I paid for 2-3 day shipping. Since it's coming from China, I expect it to take the full 3 days. Regardless, FedEx says expected delivery is Friday morning by 10:30!

    I'm so excited! It's my first Mac! Two weeks after we bought an iMac for my wife.

    I ordered mine on friday but because of credit card problems, I had to order again on monday. So I replaced my order (yesterday monday) for my MacBook Pro 15" with my Bose Companion 2 speakers. I received a message today (tuesday) saying my speakers had been shipped and will be here on thursday, I expect them to ship the computer tomorrow and I will probably receive it on friday. Unfortunatly I will not be here friday because I'm going to a convention, so my mom will sign everything for me and I will only be able to get everything going (including my new Airport Extreme and Wireless Mouse) on sunday evening when I get back), this will be one long weekend and one long ride home on sunday.

    I got pretty lucky. I'm studying in Canada too, but I came back to Singapore for holiday and decided to order my MPB from the Singapore apple store.

    Ordered: October 26 (Friday) 9pm
    Shipped: October 29 (Monday) 11am
    Delivered: Same day 2pm

    My MBP came pre-installed with Tiger, but a Leopard installation CD was included in the box. So I got Leopard up and running after about 50mins of installation. I've been playing around with the MBP for the last 2 days. Absolutely love it, except for the fact that it's too hot to place on my lap.

    I was really impressed with the speed of delivery. After reading about all the delay stories on the forum, I was expecting at least a one-week wait. I even went out shopping on Monday, until my grandma called me to say "Hey, someone just delivered a huge box to our house, you better come home now."

    Good luck to everyone here, hope you get yours really soon!

    I ordered a 15" 2.4GHz with the 7200RPM drive Sunday evening and my status as of right now (Tuesday, 10:42PM) is "Prepared for Shipment". I paid for the 2-3 day shipping, so I expect it either Friday or Saturday. Great service.

    hey
    planning on ordering the mbp pretty soon here
    on the site they say 1-3 business days on the apple.ca store
    i do live in alberta, canada so how long am i looking at?
    i do know that with fedex the expected delievery time they give is almost 99.9% accurate except for unexpected delays (weather, traffic etc etc)

    but it is coming from singapore right so how fast can it come?

    Wow, seems like many other MR members just ordered as well! I ordered my MBP (BTO 7200rpm 2.2ghz) Sunday night, it has said "not shipped" up until tonight, and now it finally says "Prepared for Shipment". I paid extra for the 2-3 day shipping so I really hope it gets here Friday or Saturday!

    Hope everyone else enjoys their new macs too!

    I'm in Alberta as well; ordered mine on Friday and it should be arriving today. However, mine was coming from California because it was a stock model; no HDD upgrades or anything.

    All the same, for 2.5 business days to elapse from time of order to time of delivery is pretty darn impressive. :D

    I just received my confirmation and I will only get it on the 6th of november, that will be a long wait especially when you already have everything (Router, Mouse, Bag, Speakers). I have no idea where it comes from though, I only got the glossy screen, no other extra additions.

    EDIT: How do you know where it ships from? Is there any other way than the departure scan?

    The confirmation from Apple doesn't really mean much. Mine said it wouldn't be delivered until November 6-9, but I just opened the box, so that was a little off :D:D:D:D

    Wait til you get your tracking number from FedEx and check it there. They'll give you an accurate delivery date, and that's also when you'll find out where it's getting shipped from.

    I'm so freakin' excited; I can't wait to play on this thing, but my boss probably wouldn't appreciate that, so I'm going to have to wait til lunchtime I guess before I start at it. :(

    So jealous :) Wish I have it here with me right now as I'm off work sick today. Having my macbook here would make me feel better. :p

    Anyways, here's my current order status:
    - Sun nite : ordered via phone
    - Wed : Received an acknowleged email that they are processing my order
    - Wed : Credit card company called about the "abnormal" payment.
    - ...still waiting..

    Despite the wait, as long as there arent any problems with the macbook pro, I'll be the happiest girl! :D

    Started my MBP up finally; still doing work while Leopard goes through the install process (it came pre-installed with Tiger, and a Leopard upgrade disc in the box).

    This machine looks perfect. None of the problems I've read about all to frequently on these forums are present. that is to say:

    No yellowing of the screen
    No warping of the lid
    No bulges on the trackpad
    Nothing!

    Looks great! :D:D:D

    It isn't a MBP, byt I've noticed Apple is really good with quick shipping. When my iPod screen got destroyed, I sent them a notification, the next morning I got a box, sent it out that day, they fixed it, and I received it two days later. Three days total to get it back from the time I requested a box to send it in. I didn't even request special shipping.

    Wow, MBP's are popular atm!

    I bought mine Sat, arrived Tuesday along with all the extras (I'm in the UK and they only come from Ireland if they're stock). I was really impressed by the shipping time, my 12" Powerbook took a few weeks, although that was around four years ago however.

    Unfortunately for me, I can't really do much (I haven't even installed Leopard on the MBP!) as I'm awaiting a bigger hard drive so its sat there staring at me, teasing me.

    Mine shipped today from China via FedEx - no delivery estimate yet, I'm literally refreshing the tracking page every hour... pretty pathetic, I know! It's my first Mac though so give me a break :)
