    Some of them are - but I'm not sure how many, or how it was determined.

    Thats a bummer, I figured I wasn't getting mine until next week anyways just because I opted to get standard shipping, but just thought it was a little odd seeing an international origin scan heh

    Anyone elses ship from there though?

    It won't take as long as you'd think. They do it all the time. It's say by friday, you'll be using your new MacBook Pro.

    Enjoy!

    Here's just a guess.

    Apple has a deal goign with FedEx to store a boat load in their California locations (a few members have said they had it shipped from there)

    Once they were out of stock (or if you order a BTO) they are shipped straight from China

    man mine hasn't even shipped yet. Mind you I'm in Vancouver and I BTO'ed the 7200rpm 320gig drive. Man I can't wait but it says probbably wont be delivered till next tuesday.

    would I have been able to get that drive if I got it in the store? or do they not have any BTO options in the store?

    How come yours has already shipped? I ordered mine:

    Order Date: Oct 14, 2008 at 02:54 PM PDT
    MBP 15.4/2.53/4GB/320@7200/with mini display port - DVI adapter

    Only today has it gone to "prepared to ship"

    which BTO options did you get? also did you get any of the mini display port adapters?

    I don't think the display adapters have any effect on your shipping time if the MBP is already BTO. I know my display adapter has already shipped and my MBP is still "not shipped"

    Mine has said this since last night:
    "Oct 16, 2008 1:00 PM

    Left FedEx origin facility

    SHANGHAI CN"

    Was hoping to get it on Friday but that's looking doubtful now. I'm going to be out of town Monday too, dang.

    It's crazy how fast it gets from China to you. I ordered mine about a month ago (the older version now haha) and it was at my house in 3 days. Good luck and hopefully you get it tomorrow...

    I live right outside Shanghai now. I wonder if I could order from the US Apple store and just pick it up at the factory :p

    You guys realise how many cargo flights there are every day, right? China to NY, via AK, in 15 hours. this is happening numerous times a day. The world is not as big as it used to be. In this day and age, shipping from China will make hardly any difference to it shipping from the other side of the US.

    Mine just updated. It's still in transit from Shanghai with an estimated delivery of October 21 by 10:30am. I'm gonna call and get a refund on the overnight shipping. Really wanted it for the weekend, I'll be at the Apple Store this weekend and could have just bought one there. Ugh.
