    Must be your first Apple purchase. All six iPods I've owned came direct from China, my MacBook Pro came direct from China, etc...

    You know on the back it says "Made in China, Designed in California by Apple".

    Apple has robot factories in several major areas around the world. china is the main location for USA and also Australia however Singapore provides iMacs and MacBook pros and Mac pros to Australia. all ipads are built in china along with iPhones and iPods.

    This is no different to Dell and other major it companies

    Have had a few, last was an iPod touch for the wife a couple years back. Few refurb items as well.

    Find it interesting it's still in China on the 22nd, but due out for delivery on the 25th.....

    Once it leaves China, it will come very quickly. You should have it in a couple of days!
