I got my MacBook Pro tonight. I ordered it Sunday from Apple's web store; below is the FedEx tracking for the shipment:
I'm very pleased. Only 25 hours in clock time getting here (from Shanghai on a jet, I know), and less than five days from order to power on.
Of course, I spent two hours "transferring" data from my current, limping iBook which I can't now seem to find on the MacBook. I may have to do the transfers the hard way . . .
But I have to say: This thing is fast.
