UK/Europe order/delivery thread MBA 2012

OK, I think we need a separate thread from all the US guys. They are getting stressed that their MBA's, ordered on Monday aren't coming today and might have to wait till Monday. Would love to be in that position. A few of us seem to have the same delivery date (22nd). It would be interesting to see how that works out for different places in the UK/countries.

Mine was dispatched early this morning. Estimated delivery date is the 22nd, although originally it was 19th - 21st.

Anyone managing to track theirs yet? Mine was customs configured 13 with 8GB ram.

Not really 100% relevant but just like to share my first world problem. Can't order a MBA until sometime next week due to my pay cheque clearing in time, going abroad for 3 weeks on the 28th so probably not gonna be able to order until I come back *sigh*

11" 2.0/8GB/512GB ordered on Tuesday morning (via HE site with 70 gift card).

Delivery method is "Merge in Transit" so I don't think I'll know much more than "20th - 22nd June" until it is nigh on my doorstep.

My base 13" with 8GB RAM just got shipped, after being ordered on the 12th.

After initially being quoted delivery at 20th-22nd now it's shipped the estimated delivery day is the 25th

Maybe once I get tracking information from the courier that'll improve...

Same as mine... expecting to receive it 22nd. Not as fast as it should be... I've just bought some batteries from Hong Kong and they took 5 days to arrive here in France !!!

I ordered the 13-inch 2GHz i7 / 8GB / 256GB + GbE t/bolt adapter via Edu store on 11th

Finally got a dispatched notification this morning, via Syncreon Tech, for "merge in transit." Assume it's merging with the adapter in UK. (Edit: delivery ETA 22nd also ...)

Anyone know how to track the MBA bit ?

UPS Tracking number was available for mine, in my account clicked track it brings up a seperate page with the tracking number and then used this on the UPS web page.

Just ordered mba 11"/1.7/8gb/128. Delivery 22 to 26 june. First mac. After a couple of years of research and following mac rumours i have gone from 15" mbp to 13" mbp to 13" mba back to 13" mbp and ended up with 11" mba. Lol.

Went into apple store today and all the guy was interested in trying to sell me was the one-to-one and apple care. He even argued with me that you couldnt get a ram upgrade to 8 gb on the air? That convinced me not to bother with the one-to-one.

Anyway, can't wait. Wife rolling her eyes as i tap this.

Ordered my 11.6" i7 8GB 128GB SSD right after the keynote but chose to pay by wire. Destination: Germany. Got shipped yesterday and is due for delivery on monday. Initially Apple had scheduled delivery to be between 21th and 25th.

Current status says it has just left Shanghai, China.

The first tracking number came with my "Your device shipped"-email. That number didn't work on ups.com so I called Apple to get the right tracking number. A little bit later it also showed up on the Apple Store tracking page for my order.

Minor update, status just changed from "Shipment in Transit - Delivery on Schedule" to "Shipment Dispatched". I've no idea what the difference is; don't think I would have noticed if Delivery Status Touch hadn't told me.

No new info yet... so, still waiting. But this post is for those that are buying an Apple Care service in European Union ! Actually, you're paying for 3 years warranty but getting only ONE extra year !!!

How is that ? Simple, the EU Consumer Law says we have 2 years warranty from date of delivery. The only "problem" is that concerns Defects present when customer takes delivery and not after it !

Take a look yourself : Summary of EU Statutory Warranty
