Mine (1 of them) is already here in Anchorage Alaska. Customs will be short. Yours will be on the way in a matter of hours. Good Luck!
I now have a departure scan from Anchorage. Progress! Still says delivery the 14th which is the bad news --- I'll be on the road dangit.

I've been stuck on preparing for shipment since Saturday also. No luck at all on the Fed Ex or UPS site using a reference (my phone#) tracking. Just checked UPS again now, and it shows that it shipped last night and is departing China, scheduled delivery by end of day Friday. Apple.com still shows Preparing for shipment.

Did you buy yours through Apple website?
And was the delivery date the same as what it said on the Apple website.

Good luck. The shipper is usually instructed to hold it until the delivery date even though a few usually get through a day early.
I read that but I never had this happen to me.
Anyway I asume it is on that plane ......
If it get's there then next thing is sorting and how ever fast that goes it goes on the truck
Usually (not always) it comes from there to my house
I am home either day for plumber and cable guys
