I ordered mine at 4:15 A.M. Eastern Standard Time. The way the Apple order pages were refreshing for me, this was the earliest that it was available. I tried to order at 4:00 A.M., however the page reported the old information that it would be available on Marc 11th. I refreshed the page constantly. I last logged in and checked my order status at 5:30 P.M. N.Y. time and saw that the status had changed from, "not yet shipped" to "prepared for shipment." Apple promised to ship within 3 to 5 business days. As long as they ship it tomorrow, they will not have been lying. They reserved the money (I can see it in pending charges) from my credit card, but have not yet billed it. This is normal and standard practice.
