Just received notification that my MacBook Pro has shipped. In a weeks time I should take delivery of my new beauty.
Just after that I received notification that the 3 year AppleCare cover for the laptop had started, when it shipped!. I lose a week of cover.
That seems a little unfair to me.
And another thing. Take a look at this order status page. Given today's date is the 22nd October, they seem to be able to see into the future as well.
Maybe I'm just crotchety because I'm waiting.
