I placed my order at 12:53 in the afternoon. I just got an email confirmation from Apple with a Fedex number, shipped at 4:49PM. All Pacific Time. Destination is Los Angeles. Standard setup MBP 2.53/4GB/etc. Next day shipping for $16 more. I just want to inform people since many of my co-workers have asked. Good luck all. Update - Delivers by is now at Oct 15, 2008.
