Hope this isn't off topic too much, but I have just ordered a new Macbook Pro and it's in process of being shipped from Shanghai to my rural address in western Canada (I'm tracking it on UPS's site). This caused a heated discussion with my son about shipping computers. My position is that Apple will ship ALL their computers, custom built or not, from their Asian factories only by air, as they are too valuable to waste weeks shipping by, er, ships. Apple's website doesn't offer any help here, as they only talk about reducing packaging size to reduce the shipping costs. Does anyone have any further information?

Apple's environment page alludes to their use of boats, but custom orders do indeed come by air.
