    From personal experience when do you guys think I should be expecting my order? I was under the impression that shipping was 3-5 days not 3-11.... If I knew there was a chance I could wait over a week I would have just gone with 2 day shipping XD

    So yeah, from personal experience when can I expect my macbook pro? (I live in North California btw)

    Thanks guys

    I live in Europe and got mine two days before the earliest arrival date set by Apple.

    Flawless logic! Fantastic! I especially liked the part where you ignored my post and responded after reading only the topic title!

    As for people helpful enough to my question. Thank you.

    So you ended up getting it BEFORE the estimated delivery date?

    And as for the gentlemen (or lady) who got the 9-10 estimate would you mind if I asked when you placed your order?

    I read the entire post, not just the title. What makes you think that if Apple gives you an estimated time frame for delivery, that you should expect something different? My experience is Apple always delivers within the estimated time they quote.

    Shipping is 3 to 5 days. But delivery is completely different. Shipping is just the time they say it will take to leave their warehouse/factory

    True, except during the saga of canadian Snow Leopard upgrade DVDs. But I guess it was not their fault.

    Whoever is writing your material you should fire them! They stole my line. Honest to gob from word to word. True story.

    I was really hoping for someone who's had experience who lived a closed closer to home but maybe it's better to let this topic die before it escalates into a bashfest.

    I had my MacBook Pro shipped to Durham, NC and I got my MBP 2 days earlier than expected with regular shipping. So I guess you can hope for it to be shipped Aug 3, but I don't know how likely that is.

    I ordered mine on the 26th with regular shipping and it should be here Monday. (Would've been here tomorrow, but no deliveries Sunday.) My estimated delivery was August 4th, but it looks like it is going to be the second.

    Just for some extra input. I live in Georgia btw.

    Wow, this is great news. I guess Apple overestimates delivery date just in case anything happens.

    Thanks for the info guys
