    I just purchased a refurb Time Capsule (july 2011 2TB) and refurb ATV 3

    I chose free shipping and it said estimated arrival May 30. Is that normal? Can I expect them to actually take that long? It feels like an eternity

    Not that i NEED them right this second but I get anxious any time i'm getting something new and shiny. :)

    I purchased two TB monitors on a Wednesday afternoon and they arrived Friday morning - shipping from California to Ontario in Canada.

    Check on the store - has the status changed to "preparing for shipment" yet?

    This is why I love Apple!

    So, I just called and asked nicely and they upgraded my order to Next Day. Now the bottleneck is product availability so looking at approx delivery of 5/23 (per the website)

    the Staus just updated to Preparing for shipment. it still says estimated arrival May 23-25 but It's next day shipping so i'm hoping for sooner!
