    Good news for me. My new MBP 13.3 just shipped from Middletown, PA. I live in Ohio, so I might be fortunate enough to get it tomorrow.

    :)

    Keeping fingers crossed!

    Nice for you. I just bought a 13" also... I can't wait to get the free iPod (laptop is for the GF)

    I'm waiting for next iMac update, hoping for nice GPU on a 20" with cheaper SSDs.

    Xmas maybe?

    The Apple Stores here in Michigan have them in stock, bought mine last night. I'm wayyyy to impatient to wait for it to ship, and risk maybe not being home.:cool:

    SAME with me. Mine shipped from Middletown and I'm in Dayton and it says Friday. I can always hope for a surprise delivery though.... :eek:

    FedEx is Retarded!

    I ordered a 13" MBP, chose 2-3 shipping (no option for overnight), and it shipped on Wednesday 6/10 from Middletown, PA, delivering to southern NJ (very southern) with a delivery date of Friday 6/12. It left Middletown in the evening on 6/10, headed to Newark, NJ (that's northern jersey, near NYC). It left Newark on 6/11 in the afternoon headed to Linwood, PA, near Philadelphia, and it's there as of the evening of 6/11. I assume overnight 6/11-6/12 it will travel to a local sort facility near my town, and go out on a delivery truck for delivery on Friday 6/12. If you go to Google Maps and look at that string of cities my MBP has traveled through, you'll agree that FedEx is retarded.

    The real kicker is that I looked up FedEx's transit times, and Ground service is next business day delivery from Middletown, PA to me in Jersey. You would think that 2-day service, which costs more, would be the same, but FedEx disagrees, and decides to cart your package all over the region for a couple days before delivering it. This probably has to do with how FedEx runs two fleets of delivery trucks, one for Ground and another for expedited services, unlike UPS that delivers all service types off of the same trucks. Theoretically if I had stuck with the free Ground shipping from Apple, I'd be typing this on my new MBP, or actually I guess I wouldn't because there would be no story to tell, but anyway...

    So all you guys/gals that are thinking you'll get yours a day early since the origin is so close to your town, think again.

    Oh, and Apple, if you're reading this, how about offering UPS shipping?

    Applemay have strategically placed stock on both coasts for faster shipping! That sucks for ppl getting theirs from china.
