    A friend has order a new iMac and I am trying to track it for her.....

    I have a carrier tracking number. The assigned carrier says "UK Distribution Center"

    How can I track this?

    She has also bought a printer at the same time, and, the iMac is a built to order option (larger HDD) incase this matters......

    thanks

    looks to be at the main hub , noramlly if it get's there before 4am it's out for delivery by 6.30am - but if it's waiting for another parcel to meet up with it it will stay at the main hun until the other('s) get there then sent out for delivery

    The web site will give the estimated date of delivery.

    Eventually it will give the name of the company who will deliver it and when you see those "magic words" OUT FOR DELIVERY you know your computer will be delivered that day. :) :)

    I just got my Mac Pro two weeks ago ... happy days :cool:

    I agree that the estimated delivery date can sometimes be a bit optimistic but the estimated delivery for my Mac Pro was Monday 19 march and it actually arrived on Thursday 15 ..... thats 4 days early. I wouldn't have known to remain at home that day except that when I checked the web site it said "Out For Delivery"

    I hope your Apple TV arrives soon :)

    I'm another who was lucky to get something early. My MBP arrived yesterday, when it wasn't supposed to arrive until Thursday. My AppleTV should arrive on Friday according to my estimated date, but we'll see what happens.

    Isn't it nice to be pleasantly surprised :)

    Hope your Apple TV arrives sooner rather than later.

    Sure is! Especially because I was going to have to take a day of work to be at home for it, but as it came yesterday my Fiancee was there to sign for it! :)
