    The good news is that a lot of laptops are being shipped sooner than originally promised.

    From what I am reading, those laptops with high-end specs (aka yours and mine) will start shipping next week. Hopefully a few days sooner than initially promised.

    There are many people reporting that their order promised for November 25th are already shipping for delivery on the 19th.

    Mine is still in prep as well.

    Keep us posted, Sam!

    You lucky dog! I am still waiting. Then again, I placed 4 or 5 orders before I finally got it right.

    If you listen to the "Upgrade" podcast, Jason Snell interviewed the MBP Product Manager in the last episode. It was pretty good.

    Hey Sam...

    How did you get notified your MBP was shipping?
    Did Apple send you an email stating so or did you just happen to check your order?

    I imagine you did EXPRESS. How many days post being informed of ship is actual delivery?

    Right now, Apple charged me for the order but order is still processing.

    Thanks

    Your guys' excitement at taking ownership of new laptops has me excited...time to order another bike! :D

    Actually in all seriousness, I'm going to follow in Ron's footsteps...trade in two older (but not old) bikes that I no longer use towards a new one that I will use. But you'll both get your Macs before I get my gravel bike. It's out of stock at the manufacturer due to demand (how very Apple of them) so I won't have my new Christmas gift until...probably closer to Christmas. :laugh:
