    I ordered the MBP as soon as the danish online store came back up this Tuesday. When i had placed my order it said estimated shipping date: 30.oct and expected delivery by 3.nov.
    Today (26th) they shipped it by TNT but now the expected delivery date is 4.nov. How can earlier shipment result in later delivery? which date should i trust?
    And can the delivery date change to an earlier date if shipping is going smooth, or only be delayed?

    hmm, that seems odd... but 8/10 times, it comes on or before the date.

    best you can do is track your order with TNT

    I think shipping times are coming down, thankfully. I've alaways had stuff delayed by at least a week from Apple but I ordered an iPod recently and even though it was engraved it arrived on Monday morning after ordering Friday.

    I can't seem to find my shipment on the TNT tracking site. It tells me to enter a 9 digit tracking no. but the "Carrier Tracking Number" i have from Apple is 10 digits.
    Also when does Apple usually draw the money from the customer account? They haven't done it yet.
