    Has anyone recieved there MacBook Pro in the UK? If so where and when did you order it?

    I ordered a MacBook Pro (1.83Ghz now 2Ghz) on the 11th Jan from KRCS in Leeds. They're unable to give me an estimated date of when they expect to recieve stock other than we expect to have them by the end of March. As an Authorised Apple Centre I would have expected them to be able to get a firm date from apple now they are shipping.

    I ordered a 1.83GHz with 1GB RAM (otherwise stock) on 14 Feb with an estimated ship date of 14 March.

    It shipped yesterday with an estimated delivery date of 15 March.

    I ordered on 11th Jan and received it 24th Feb.

    Apple store for Education.

    *edit* Mine was in my hands 3 days after arriving at Amsterdam but it took a detour to Daventry to meet with the rest of my order.

    Just this second picked mine up!

    Havent even unwrapped it yet.

    I preordered a 1.67 then 1.83ghz model from my local reseller Western but I talk myself into paying the extra to get a 2.0ghz one hehe.

    I was in sorting out a mac mini ram upgrade when they said they'd finally got some mbp's in so I was most chuffed :D

    Gordy you must be a lucky charm! I did exactly what you did, At lunctime today I went into my dealer to sort out some more RAM for my other machine. As I walked in the guys behind the counter were just taking one out the box, they'd just that second been delivered.
