    Mine did as well this morning. I think the customized ones come from there (I got the 500GB 7200rmp HD). I ordered 2-3 days shipping, but Fedex says it isn't scheduled to arrive till the 18th. Apple said the 16th in their email. What about you?

    It's the same situation for me in terms of delivery estimates. The email says the 16th, but Fedex says the 18th. However, I did the standard free shipping.

    Well, if that's the case, I am going to ask for my money back if it doesn't come in the 16th. It says 2-3 business days, so Tuesday would be 3 business days, but Thursday would be 5 which is unacceptable if I paid $15.

    Mine is shipping from California. FedEx says it will be here Monday. Stupid weekends getting in the way, it'll be in the area by tomorrow. Wonder if I can just go pick it up at the FedEx facility.

    Mine said the 16th when I ordered it, which would have been 5 business days, I called and they refunded me for the 2-3 day shipping, and I did end up getting it in 2 days.

    From my experience if it comes from China it normally takes 1-2 days max no matter what kind of shipping you pay. So I always take free shipping and gets here in the same amount of time..

    I will. I wonder if it comes in Monday though. Apple said it wasn't supposed to ship till for another 3-5 days, so maybe Fedex's estimates are inaccurate as well.

    I ordered a BTO 13" (iWork installed) early evening Tuesday (local time). Initial shipping was listed as within 1 - 3 days. Shipped today from Shanghai (after Fedex cutoff) with a expected delivery date of 06/18 by 4:30 pm. Not real happy with the quality of 'expedited' shipping at this point, but I will wait until Monday to call Apple after seeing what updates Fedex lists.

    Did any of you order the 17" with the 3.06Ghz update and the 500GB 7200 RPM drive? If so, have you had any shipping updates? I ordered on Tuesday by the way. I'm in no rush whatsoever, but was curious.

    I ordered the same configuration with 2-3 day shipping and got the same information from Apple and FedEx. I'm going to ask for a refund if it doesn't arrive until the 18th since I won't even be in town then. When I placed the order delivery was scheduled to be on or before the 17th.

    Looking forward to a new MacBook Pro. My PowerBook G4 is five years old and the second hard drive died about a month ago.

    I ordered that configuration on Monday at 5:15. My free iPod has shipped from Shanghai (probably because I had it engraved) and will most likely arrive Monday. My MBP however has said "Prepared for Shipment" since Wednesday or Thursday (not sure).

    My 13" MacBook Pro shipped out of China as well. I also ordered the 2-3 day international shipping and was promised delivery of the 16th, but FedEx is now saying the 17th. Apple has refunded my expedited shipping fee as a result.

    Ordered a 17" with standard config, shipping with UPS from the Netherlands. I think it's their distribution center for mainland Europe and Scandinavia. Their stuff used to ship from Ireland but I guess that's no longer the case.

    Apple's own tracking service is a bit weird though. It says shipped on June 12 and out for delivery on June 12, which is obviously BS since UPS says it has only moved about 120 miles so far (from Netherlands to Germany, still a long way from Sweden).
