    WWDC Keynote said ships today... anybody seeing that with their purchase? Especially if you were first to purchase right when the store opened up?

    My is saying 5-7 business days to ship.. :eek:

    I'm in a similar situation. The only reason I stopped myself from completing the order was because of the timeframe that was listed. I'm thinking that stores SHOULD get a shipment tomorrow, if not the next day, so there's no point in placing the order right now for me (I'm not getting any upgrades, so I can just get in, pay, and get out).

    Guy I talked to at my store (was returning 13-inch MBA to get gift card) said he has heard nothing about a shipment (and this was after the keynote was over).

    Keeping fingers crossed that it says 5-7 days as a default but actual shipping will happen today!

    5-7 days here too, Hong Kong store. Mine is a custom build(so it's not that surprising) but even the regular Retina Pros without any custom upgrades are showing as 5-7 days too. They usually show 'in stock' if it's announced as shipping today right?

    I called a few different stores nearby and they've told me different things. The consensus was that they may get it shipped tonight for tomorrow morning/afternoon's shipments.

    The quickest you'd get it from online, if they shipped it tonight, would be two days from now (assuming 2-3 days, $15 expedited shipping). I figured if they get backed up with online orders, my best bet of getting it ASAP would be to keep calling the stores every morning/afternoon to see if they received any shipments of the new models. I also assume that if they can get it shipped out for online customers, they can get it shipped out for their brick and mortar customers.

    Plus, I'm only 10-15 minutes away (6-7 minutes if they do have them in stock lol) from my closest store at a "smaller" mall; about 20 minutes from a bigger branch at a major mall, which I assume would be prioritized if there were delays.

    Yikes...up to 2-3 weeks for shipping now. I can see the scalper lines forming now...
