    not sure about exact. many times it says "ships in 2-3 days" or something indefinite.

    happy bday btw!

    shipped or delivered or what? why isn't the store an option?

    the thing is it all depends on stock levels. there is no guarantee...

    LOL i would love to do that too! Mine is 10/05...waiting for new MB/MBP/MBA...but I hate waiting for deliveries...but this may be worth it! Ahhh I can't wait - I might bite before my real birthday haha! To answer your real question, I'm not sure if they can deliver on a specific date...if you do find a way, do tell!

    At first I thought it said your birthday was in March, I was like, that isnt soon! Then I twigged its the American date format lol

    I'm not too sure if you can specify a date, but it usually takes around 4-5 working days to arrive from ordering.

    I live in Georgia and I have ordered 3 Macs from Apple.com. I always got them in 3 days. They always used Fed Ex for the shipments(at least to me they did). They say 4-5 business days, but it never took that long. Maybe I was just lucky.

    It depends on where the item is shipping from and where you live. If you want to make sure it arrives on your birthday, buy it from amazon and choose one or two day shipping.

    thanks guys, im not gonna buy now only right before october 3.
    and now i know apple has a 2-day and 1-day shipping so thats good!

    so lets say if its not bto then it ships out in 24hours and if you choose 2day shipping it will only take 3 days to get to you from the time you click BUY.

    Not quite... They say ship in 24hours but sometimes it can take 2-3 days. It can change after you click buy.

    Its all a bit pot luck really

    Easier to just change your birthday to whatever day the MBP arrives . . .

    Is your birthday going to be ruined if it doesn't work out that way? Maybe it'd be better to have it delivered to a freind nearby, then have them buy one of those singing telegram people, so that they show up at like 10:30 on your birthday, and you wake up at 10:00, then...*knock knock*

    *open door*

    Happy!...Happy!...Happy......!

    Happy birthday...to you! It's your birthday...Woo hoo! We're here to sing your birthday song, so here's a Macbook Pro for you! You, you...

    Happy birthday!!! *song ends on C Major because they're unimaginative*

    By the way, that song might sound like this.

    Glad you liked it. I was trying to make a somewhat complicated four-piece barbershop type song to match the lyrics I posted, but I got that instead :p Works.

    Edit: POST NUMBER 1,000 WHOOOHOOO!!!! :D

    Why do you wanna know? ;)

    Just kidding. Despite my long hair, and striking beauty, I am in fact a guy. I'm the one on the right in my profile picture with my girlfriend of two years and three days. :)
