I ordered a 13" 128GB MBA last night (10/20) w/ the BTO 4GB RAM option...it's still showing as "not yet shipped." I'm curious about other BTO customers' shipping status...

Where are your machines shipping from? Normally BTO machines ship from China.

Care to post your config and time of order?
She has a 11.6". They seem to ship faster than the 13.3" BTO's.

mine got charged as well. prolly ship tomorrow, and be here by Monday
Which display size?

same here, my card was charged not long ago though, so It'll probably hit "prepared for shipment" within the next few hours or so.
Which display size? Mine (13.3"/2.16 GHz/4GB/256GB) got charged earlier today as well, but is still showing "not yet shipped".

I ordered within 5 minutes of the store coming online. It still says arriving between Oct 26 and Nov 1. How about you guys, what's your currently estimated arrival?

Mine: 13.3"/2.16 GHz/4GB/256GB + iWork + MS Office
Ordered: Oct 20, 2010 at 02:05 PM PDT
Ships: 1 - 3 business days
Delivers: Oct 22 - Oct 28
Status: Not Yet Shipped

Based on past order of my CTO MBP, I really am not expecting to see this until Oct 27 at the earliest. It will likely move to shipped tomorrow (10/22) and then sit there in the warehouse all weekend before it starts moving towards me on Monday 10/25. Then I'll get it 1-3 business days thereafter.

Good for you, however pretty messed up: we ordered the same config, I ordered it two hours before you, but you got a delivery estimate 4 days earlier! WTH Apple!?

Mine (13.3"/2.16/4/256) is now preparing for shipment! Any news for you, reallybigfeet?

Now the crucial question is: how long will it take? I've seen several where it took only a day from "preparing for shipment" to "delivered". Where did your BTO MBA's ship from? US or China?

Don't wurry mate. Your MBA is getting 'special treatment' in China before it's shipped :p Lots of China-men and women get to fondle your baby before you get it. < grin >
