    I was wondering what this means (it's on the Apple website when you go to order a new Touch). Does this means that it leaves the warehouse in 1-3 days or that it arrives in 1-3 days? Sorry, I have never bought from the Apple store online.

    I ordered my ipod yesterday afternoon, it left the warehouse in China early this morning, and is scheduled to be delivered friday by 1030am, thats using the free ground shipping. If you order online, it gets to you in a good amount of time.

    I ordered a few hours after the announcement and mine does not appear to have shipped yet.

    As an FYI, I ordered mine (with engraving and the standard free shipping) 1/2 hour after the store came back up yesterday and the expected delivery date shows Sept. 11 - Sept. 17th, quite the range. I'm in no hurry to get it though, it's a BD gift for my daughter.

    Me too! I am waiting for mine to show up in the office on Friday at 12pm (so all my coworkers would say 'wow').

    Hopefully the new earphone w/ mic will be around in my local store so I can test the possible VoIP feature! :D:D:D:D

    I ordered mine from the Apple on-line store today. It said "ship 1-3 days" also.

    Just checked the status and it estimates delivery tomorrow.

    Mine is apparently "Prepared for shipment" but has not shipped yet. Hopefully it will go out today.

    me too =/ i ordered mine around 1 pm pacific time and as of now its still prepared for shipment. i wonder why all these other lucky fellows are getting them on friday? i did ask to have my name engraved on it so that might be the reason why the shipping is being delayed. still it sucks that i payed for 2-3 day shipping and most ended up going with the free shipping which from what i am seeing is pretty much 2-3 days. apple, you greedy bastards ... but i still love you guys =)

    I ordered at 12:45 PM PST yesterday and did not request engraving and paid for overnight shipping. Hopefully it will go out today.

    just wait

    Mine said that too when I got the order confirmation. Once it actually shipped, the FedEx tracker system says it will be delivered on the 12th before 10:30 like a few others here.

    Hmmmm. The FedEx site pulled up my tracking number but shows no delivery time. Only say's "in transit". Maybe it needs to board the plane in Kunshan CN first. Say's "package recieved after FedEx cut off".

    Man...I want my $10 back! Normal shipping is the same dang delivery time.

    I guess this 1-3 BUISNESS DAY crap keeps them from getting yet another class-action.

    Just glad I didn't fork over the $16 for 1 day delivery that would have ended up being 5.

    It's really not the 10 bucks either...It's the WAY it was done. If it's gonna' be 5 days then tell me up front. I'd be cool with that. Same thing I tell my kids...Just don't lie to me.

    I ordered mine at like 3AM last night (Engraved) and it's already shipped today with a estimated delivery of Friday. (I live in Idaho)


    Now if I only had something to protect it with......

    I ordered an alti-glare film set at the same time and it's not slated to ship 'till October :O
