    Just an FYI for those of you that are starting to stress about your SP3 pre-orders shipping on time or wondering if they will ship on Friday or be delivered on Friday. Based on experience with the SP2 pre-order, nearly everyone that pre-ordered will get their SP3 on Friday.

    You may hear conflicting reports that it ships via ground on Friday or that it will be delivered on Friday. Both are actually correct. MS seems to stage the products at nearby UPS locations or some other warehouse, label them at the last minute (like the morning of delivery in some cases), and put them on a truck for delivery to your doorstep on Friday morning. Don't expect to see much progress prior to that. They do the final billing 1 to 3 days in advance and you *might* get a tracking number at that time, but don't expect the package to show any updates until Friday AM.

    Of course there will be some screw ups and exceptions, but for the most part you should expect your SP3 to arrive on Friday.

    No deal. I'll give you a full refund on the purchase price of this thread though.

    Yeah...a lot of threads over this now...if these statements true, they we'll be patient...I do remember mine original Surface coming from China so I know it needed more than the two days we have left. :)

    Just a follow up. I just got a tracking number for my order about an hour ago. It's in a UPS facility several hundred miles away, but the expected delivery date is tomorrow.
