    Possibly, but i also heard that Apple employees were taking longer lunch breaks, leading to longer shipping times.

    The Apple Ireland store says 7 Days, but aren't Apple currently at their MacBook-selling-peak? I remember hearing that their actually selling more than they can ship.

    That's a more likely story, it's back to School/Uni/College time.

    They were "within 24 hours" a day or so ago. Now they're at "4 - 6 days" mind you, it's Saturday, almost Sunday so maybe they're just having a bit a break...

    UK Store -

    Mac Mini both models - 24 hours

    MacBook all 3 models - 7 days

    MacBook Pro all 3 models - 24 hours

    iMac 17" - 24 hours

    iMac 20" - 5 days

    Mac Pro standard model - 24 hours



    It's the back to School/Uni/College shortage that Apple can't keep up with on the MacBooks.

    Yeah, keep forgetting all you guys are going back to Uni now. We're (well, not me, I've finished) about 2 months away from the long summer holidays.

    Haven't you noticed us lot stuck without our MacBooks (see the thread Noooo (Macbook shipping delayed)) :( The delay is starting to get ridiculous now, I hope it is worth it :)

    I was at my local apple reseller this morning, they said that they have none in stock and that apple have told them a 21 day delivery time.
