    So my new rig is being shipped from China. Left on 1/5, picked up 1/5, and showing in transit 1/7 in shanghai w/ an est delivery 1/9 by 1030am. When I called Apple last week a CS person stated a 1/8 date on delivery.

    Odds that I'll see my shiny MBP on 1/8?

    Can't tell f/ Fedex if it left China or not with a "in transit" message like that...

    Wonder if it comes with some orange chicken and broccoli beef? :)

    thanks all

    on fedex's website, does it have an estimated delivery date? i would go by that over anything apple has to say.

    as an aside, i recently purchased an item with two-day shipping from amazon. while amazon's delivery estimate was the 3rd of january, ups' delivery estimate was the 4th. even though i paid for it to come by the 3rd, there's no fighting the ups guy; it came on the 4th. fortunately, i was able to get the money i paid for expedited shipping back. :)

    Usually "in-transit" means it has departed the major fed ex hub going to your local hub then delivery..

    definitey go by what fedex says. when i purchased my macbook last thursday, i decided to go with 2-day shipping (i wasn't sure if overnight would have it arrive on friday because i ordered at around 4pm EST). apple gave me a window for delivery of "january 7-january 8." when the fedex site had my tracking info. on it, they estimated delivery for the 7th, and behold, this morning, it is on the fedex truck for delivery :)
