    My PB 12" shipped on Thursday and was wondering when I can expect it to arrive. It is a built to order and is coming from Taiwan.

    Any info would be great!:D

    I'd say between 5 to 6 working days!

    Just before Chrimbo I ordered a BTO G4 iBook. And although it took only a couple of days to build the thing, a further [if my memory serves me correctly] 6 days later I took delivery.

    I can only suggest ringing Apple Ireland as they'll be able to track your order... unlike the useless web based tracking system.

    ;)

    Thanks for that. I've got the delivery number so I can track it via TNT.

    Cheers!

    Good luck with the TNT tracking number... I personally found it next to useless, telling me absolutely jack about where my order was!

    Hence the phone call to Ireland... 2 minutes later, I knew exactly where my order was and when to expect its delivery.

    I just phoned Ireland. It is in europe and was told to expect it in about 48 hours. I've to phone back tomorrow so I can get a consignment number for proper tracking.

    Cheers!:)

    My new 12" PB took over 2 weeks to arrive when I ordered it in September. It shipped much later than the "3-5 days" on the site but it was a BTO too. In the end it arrived one day after I went to uni, which is exactly what I didn't want to happen! Still, they said there were shipping delays in Asia or something.

    Hope it arrives soon!
