    Hi,
    I recently ordered a BTO MacBook Air, was just wondering if anyone has experienced this delivery route before, it's had a very strange route and has been in the same place for over 17 hours now its being shipped to UK, Essex, I ordered it on 19/12. I would appreciate any feedback, thanks! :) I ordered a BTO iMac earlier in the year and the route was far more straight forward.

    It's clearing through customs...

    It's clearing through customs...

    And then it will make it's way to your local 'hub'

    Once it reaches your local hub, it Will be out for delivery.

    I suspect you may not get it by this weekend i'm afraid.

    Good luck

    Mine was:

    Shanghai -> Frankfurt Airport -> Somewhere near Prague -> Nurnberg -> Frankfurt -> Bielefeld, so this seems to be pretty usual ;) But you should get it today or tomorrow then.


    Currently I am in Taiwan,
    my iPad mini went from

    Shenzen -> HongKong -> Taipei -> Taoyuan

    Welcome to globalization :D

    Good news then, keep an eye out for that delivery - keep your music switched off so you can hear the door bell.

    Remember, it's going to be painful waiting and waiting, and curtain twitching all day... but it will be worth it in the end.

    Hopefully it will be a early morning delivery for you!

    Good luck, and enjoy! :)

    Very true, it's been painful since the tracking number came through and I hope so too, my last delivery from them came in the morning but not sure if it will be similar, hope it is! :D

    Yeah hehe, played minecraft earlier and it was maxed out with 50-60 fps and the fan was really loud! xD and awesome, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between them except for a few hardware upgrades, they are beautiful machines! :D
