    My emac was shipped today from the UK apple store - i'm afraid to ask, but how long do you think it will take to arrive? i'm rather excited and impatient to ditch my beige Pentium II 233 (damn i think it heard me - it knows its fate!)

    Usually a few days, depending on what method of shipping you paid for.

    I know how you feel. I just recently upgraded from a Pentium II 433 to a G5, and the difference is staggering! I couldn't wait for it to arrive in the mail, as I'm sure you can't. You'll love it when it gets there!

    Congrats on the purchase!

    congrats and welcome. you'll love the emac!

    btw, be careful with that PII - computers *definitely* know when you're getting rid of them, and they don't like it! ;)

    The tracking site showed my pbook shipped on the 28th and left Taipei on the 29th. Although it doesn't seem to have landed yet, are Apple using cargo Zeppelins for transport?

    I know what it's like when you're waiting for a new computer, I had to wait 3 weeks for my first Mac :eek: (imported from US)

    My second (current) Mac, on the other hand, arrived overnight :)

    Taiwan. I think they're sending it on a slow boat from China. Are you sure it's comming from Cork?

    Ordrered my ipod on the 17th January. Shipped on the 22nd. Just rang apple and they say there has been a delay due to new year in Asia. It was prepared to fly on 27th and is still in shanghai !!. They expect it to be delievered to me by end of week. I won't be holding my breath!!.

    Also, should get my first apple by the end of the week. Ordered it from a local reseller on 16th. A brand new 15" Powerbook. I cannot wait to get the ipod and powerbook together :D

    Hmm, two weeks against the promised 3-6 business days. Why oh why didn't I just buy a standard build from a store?
