    I'm considering buying an iPod if Apple releases an upgraded 5G on tuesday, and if I do I want to get it as soon as possible, so my question is:

    Is there a difference in shipping time between an iPod with and one without laser engraving? Does anyone have previous personal experience?
    If yes, how much?

    In the US store, adding laser engraving currently bumps nano and regular iPod shipping times from "within 24 hours" to "1-2 business days." Shuffles get bumped from "within 24 hours" to "1-3 business days."

    I have gotten a couple engraved iPods, and have been amazed at how quick I got them, considering they were custom engraved in China. The last one I ordered on Wednesday afternoon at 4 PM. It was shipped from Shanghai, China on Thursday morning (their time, which was Wed. evening my time), was in Ancourage, Alaska by Thursday afternoon, and showed up at my house in Buffalo, NY, on Friday morning by 9 AM!

    The previous one I had ordered took a bit longer, but not much.
