    So, I woke up this morning to a card alert of a new purchase. It looks like the Microsoft Store just dinged my card for the Surface Book preorder. They claimed they wouldn't charge until it was going to ship. If that is the case, it might arrive before the 26th. Pretty stoked!

    Mine did as well, and I was in the second group of preorders that were set to go out "in 5 to 6 weeks".

    Probably in the SP4 forum.

    They did the same with my Band 2 preorder. The store has never worked like that before, I wonder if it's a glitch.

    :) I just sold my iMac, in part to fund the Surface Book LOL. I have never been a true Mac person, but got it a while back mostly for the screen real estate, and found that I just never use it, especially since the advent of the Surface!

    Honestly, my MBP was the nicest Windows laptop I ever had, so far. OSX was not for me. Bootcamp is a nice feature, and Apple does make great hardware. It is a first gen retina i7 15" from 2012, with a dGPU. It is more capable than my i5 Surface Pro 3, but far less portable. I am hoping the Surface Book will be as powerful as the mac, with just as nice buildquality, while being almost as portable as the SP3.

    Nothing has showed up on my card yet. I'm hoping mine still ships out by the 26th.

    I've had good experience with the MS store generally, but I also have about as much patience as a toddler on Christmas eve. Can't wait to get this thing set up for development and design.

    Was yours shipped from China by any chance? I just got a Fed Ex notification that I have a package coming from Souzhou China on Monday morning. (I tracked it and it shows that it was shipped today from Maintek Computers in Souzhou and is now in Shanghai).

    Woo Hoo - just logged into my Fed Ex portal and I see it there tracking to my address. I have not received notification from Microsoft however, nor does it show as shipped when I log into my store account.

    Me too - but according to Fed Ex, it arrived at their location in China 2 days ago, went to Shanghai (in Shanghai for about a day), went to Japan and is now en route from Japan to the US. I suspect that it went through US inspection in Shanghai based on what Fed Ex said in the tracking statement which might explain why it spent so much time in Shanghai.

    Best,

    Maybe he is closer to the west coast, and you are closer to the east? Weird.

    Mine isn't showing anything, because I don't think it shipped yet Card still shows a temporary charge from Monday, and haven't received a shipment notification. Just mean to run a temp charge before the actual charge, MS
