Apple will quite randomly ask for proof of edu-discount eligibility just before shipping. But they´re very generous with that, even "It´s a present for a student" works.
Yeah they are. I bought the gf's brother a 13inch MBP a year back, but used his edu discount on it. Apple rep on the phone just asked me what Uni it was, I said Durham and it was a gift, he said okay. Sale over.

Smile A Brit in Thailand

I realise this is all about Europe, but just for fun! I'm a Brit living in Thailand and over the last few months I've seen that we are way down the food chain,when it comes to delivery times ( still don't have iMac Minis with SIM cards yet) so I depressingly thought I wouldn't see a shiny new 27" iMac 'till sometime next year.
Last Friday I watched Aussies line up to buy in shops ( Here we are 7 hours ahead of the UK), then watched their Apple store go live on ordering. Rapidly switched back to the Thai store as WOW! it was live too! (about 5.00 pm here- ??10.00 am UK)

Ordered 27" 3.4 GHz, 3TB fusion, 8GB RAM, 680MX 2GB GPU, standard mouse and keyboard with education discount ( no questions asked, although my wife is a lecturer so I could have used her name/ID), Apple care. Came to 91,000Baht (about £1860)
Ships 3-4 weeks, delivery 24th to 27th December!

Looks like, just for once we are doing at least as well as you guys. ( I've ordered Crucial 16GB RAM from the States,so 24 GB total,it will arrive at about the same time) Super fast Premiere Pro editing here we come . I can retire my 2008 24" 2.8 GHz intel core duo with 256 MB GPU!!!!! Been waiting since May!

Another early bird here, ordered immediately as the purchase button went live. I have a Dec 21st - Jan 2nd delivery date for a 27", 3.4GHz i7, 8GB, 1TB Fusion Drive, 680MX 2GB with trackpad.

A part of me is hoping to see movement by Friday.

That would be good for everyone, but with it saying 21st for everyone I presume that is the release date.

Mine isn't on order yet, hopefully will be ordered today. I will expect it in the second week of january.

You know students in the UK who order online get a three year warranty for free anyway? The uplift doesn't do much. See my sig for more details.

Ordered On 30-Nov-2012

Processing Items : Dispatched: 2 - 3 Weeks Delivers 28 Dec, 2012 - 04 Jan, 2013


Not quite sure how 2-3 weeks equates to an earliest delivery of Dec 28th, but we'll see. The debit card I used expires 12/12 so I'm hoping it all goes through ok before the end of the year. Ordered from the Czech Republic Store.

Have a student friend on hand to deal with any specific queries regarding the order

Puzzling delivery dates

Just sat off pondering about my delivery date 21st/2nd now if you include Friday 30th as day one then the 21st would be week 3 so does that mean we might get our iMacs before the 21st?

This threw me at first too, but i think they're covering any slip ups by giving longer dates up front. So if it dispatches in 3 weeks (21st), they have a week to get it to you (28th). Hopefully that might mean some early deliveries.

I placed my order for my 27" (3.4 /3TB Fusion/16GB/680MX/Applecare) as soon as it went live and delivery by 28th Dec -28th Dec. I called Apple and they said they were trying to get them for before christmas bot over estimating incase they are unable to get them to people on time...

So the dates given are just some sort of estimate, that seems to mean nothing yet lol

Well I ordered mine at the same time, minutes after ordering went live, and now have a date for January after it saying 21st. I wouldn't get your hopes up yet.

Liverpool calling.

BTO iMac 27" with i7, 1 TB fusion, 680mx delivers Jan 2nd - Jan 7th. Delayed ordering a bit until I was able to digest the ifixit tear-down first as was undecided between 21 and 27". In the end, user upgradeability of the 27" was the clincher.

Which suits me fine because we're away Christmas week and didn't want to be sitting on egg shells wondering how lonely the machine would be sitting in the back of a TNT or even worse Yodel van between boxing day and Jan 2nd

For allthe UK orders, I thought I would share my experience from ordering the Retina MBP in the summer which also came directly from China.
As soon as it is shipped it is put on a flight (normally Lufthanza, it was possible to track the flight) to Frankfurt. I think some flights stopped at Khazakstan. Once in Frankfurt it was loaded onto a lorry overnight and was at UK customs in Heathrow for inspection the next morning. The day after that it was delivered. So in all I expect a 2-3 day wait after shipping to UK residents.

Belgium here.
Delivery time 2-3 weeks

Just called Apple if i could change standard delivery to express, wasn't possible because they are directly shipped from China and so it doesn't matter. Then I asked if I could change from a magic mouse to a trackpad, was possible but this would delay the delivery, so I passed. But the friendly guy at Apple then said he would trow in the magic trackpad for free.

Just saying that this not only happens in the US but also in Europe.
Now give me the damn machine!

If you we're the first I was definitely the second, initially I got the same 2-3 weeks, but as I has to pay with bank transfer (stupid VISA and their 20.000kr limit), once the payment was processed, delivery time had sadly slipped to 3-4 weeks.

I called them about it, and the guy said he'd see what he could do...

Luckily i used my MasterCard. Anyway, my order was just below 20.000kr. (19.550kr. If it weren't for the EDU store, it would have been 20799...)

Please tell me if he says anything, I would like to know. I am considering to call them, to ask if there is any chance that my order might arrive a bit earlier.

Ordered my 27" BTO the day they were released...it's has a delivery date of 27th/28th Dec since. That sounds to me like they think it will be Xmas but daren't run the risk of letting people down.

Given the 23rd through to the 26th are going to be days for skeleton staffing at most courier companies that would imply they would have to be in the UK before that time to make deliveries on the 27th.

Same for me.

BTO , ordered about 8.40am(uk) due 27th/28th


I did actually initially get 21st December to 3rd January ordered at 8.05am but cancelled that to amend the order.

Hi guys

My BTO 27" is due for deliver 27/28th.

Chances are that that means they won't be able to deliver it as the Uni post room (I live on campus) will be shut over Christmas.

Anyone know if I would be able to pick up from the depot?

Cheers

Del

Yes you certainly can. You can give them a call in advance to save the delivery guy from attempting a delivery. Do it close to the date though.
