I ordered my BTO 15" PB yesterday (my first new Mac in eight years!). The order status is currently "Open," and it has a ship date on or before 4/27 like many others here. How does Apple produce BTO machines? I know that a number of the preconfigured computers were air freighted from overseas, and I assume that Apple will just ship those to customers who order them. Do they also order a number of "bare" computers, then build them to order somewhere stateside, then ship them out? Or do they pass the order info to the manufacturing plant, where the computer is built and then air freighted before being shipped to the customer? Just curious about how Apple handles order fulfillment. I still remember the teaser graphic on apple.com the day that Jobs announced the online store, and it never occurred to me to think about just how they deal with the orders.
