I just got notification that my ipad has shipped and is coming from China. I ordered it 2 weeks before release.

Does anyone know about how long apple products take to get from China? Am I looking at over 1 week?

Regards,

My best guess is you might get it Friday, Monday almost for sure.

Mine went China to Alaska to Kentucky to Chicago. Each leg took about a day, maybe a day and a half for the China to Alaska leg.

UPS blew out my tracking info, so I'm working from memory.

Well it wont be delivered till Monday,

Very annoying knowing I ordered 2 weeks before launch and I have to wait 2 weeks while everyone else has it because apple had to wait to ship it out.

It had a shipping tag on it for days so they wouldn't just cancel the order.
Thanks all for your responses,

Wasn't that when they moved the date from the 3rd to the 12th because all of the units that were pre-roder allocated for the initial launch were sold out?

Yes it was to be delivered the 12th for internet preorder,
I could have walked in the store opening day and got one, but instead have to wait 2 weeks because I ordered it early.

Point is I should have not ordered it 2 weeks early and just picked one up launch day, the extra planning did me no good as far as getting the ipad quicker.
