Mine is actually sitting just a few miles away from me tonight somewhere here in Louisville, Kentucky. Mike, I imagine yours and mine have travelled all the way together up until now since they were both on the cancelled flight out of Shanghai.

Today's been too busy anyway and I'm teaching until 10 PM tonight. The temptation would have been too great to let the class out early, so I'm glad mine is set to arrive tomorrow.

Ordered mine the evening of launch. FedEx tried to deliver today, but I was not here for signature delivery. My new MBP will be in my grubby hands tomorrow morning around 10:30 AM though !

My Macbook came Monday (but tracking said Wednesday - crazy!) = unfortunately I'm sending it back as it has some MAJOR issues with crashes right out of the box and horizonal lines across the screen. It restarts itself on some crashes - a bit creepy. It always freezes on wake up too. New one should be here by Thursday. Can't wait!

I just picked up my brand new MBP.

I was on the fence to spend the money, then it was going between the MB and MBP.

Well I finally bit the bullet and bought a MBP 2.53GHz. The GPU and screen size sold me on the MBP, though I do like the smaller form factor of the MB. I opted for the 2.53 since it had everything I wanted and saved me from needing to buy ram, another hard drive. The GPU had more memory and the CPU had 6meg of shared cache.

All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase. In a week or so, I'll be putting my old MBP up for sale but for now I'm basking in the light of a new computer

Just ordered mine. MBP 2.8GHz with the 320GB 7200rpm drive. I also added a Mini Display to VGA adapter, so I can hook it to projectors in my various classrooms.

Estimated arrival is 11/4 - 11/11. Looks like going with the 7200rpm drive is making it take longer.

Well, something is wrong with mine… It arrived to Germany from Asia and then went to Netherlands where an exception was shown as tracking status, NOW it is back to Germany -very same city- again. What gives ??

Call UPS and ask them for something specific. Usually they can tell you something else or something that's a little more insightful than what's on the web site.

Thanks Mike, well, no need for that, the MBP arrived… I don't know how UPS managed to do it this fast since yesterday was bouncing from Netherlands to Germany and in a matter of hours it was here in Spain. Anyhow, the mini display port - DVI adapter is M.I.A. I have phoned Apple about it so let see what happened to it… :/

Well, no worries, Apple is sending the adaptor… I guess they just messed that one.

Finally, my status has changed to "Prepared for Shipment."

I'm hoping it will get here before or by next Wednesday--I paid $11 for the 2-3 day shipping. I leave town next Thursday, and would really like to have it to bring with me.
