Finally had my order change to 'shipped' woohooo.

Wondering what UK-based 7,1 purchasers here experience has been on the actual delivery date, compared to what the Apple Store Order system says - ie - did yours arrive exactly when they said it would once 'shipped' or did it come early/late?

Congrats. What you getting? :)

My obfuscated tracks from the DHL Global Express Tracking website:

  1. +0 "Shipment information received." Eindhoven
  2. +4 "Processed at" Amsterdam
  3. +4 "Departed Facility in" Amsterdam
  4. +4 "Arrived at Sort Facility" Leipzig
  5. +5 "Processed at" Leipzig
  6. +6 "Departed Facility in" Leipzig
  7. +6 "Arrived at Sort Facility" East Midlands
  8. +6 "Processed at" East Midlands
  9. +6 "Departed Facility in" East Midlands
  10. +6 "Arrived at Delivery Facility in" MyHomeTown
  11. +7 "With delivery courier" MyHomeTown
  12. +7 "Delivered - Signed for by:" MyNameHereSlightlyMispelled
Might have been delivered on the 6th or even 5th day if a public holiday hadn't delayed transit once or twice.

HTH. :)

I looked on B&H photo (New York), as well as their current $500 off they have various builds in stock.
Every Mac does say ‘Not shipped to United Kingdom’.
No idea why not, if someone was prepared to pay shipping.

Ah cool. I ordered mine a couple of weeks back anyway so not asking about stock/deliv estimates on new purchases - just a question about real world delivery time once its been ticked off as 'shipped' in the apple store system. Hopefully comes without coronovirus attached too!

I ordered mine on 15th April. Got a tracking number on 17th and the Apple Store tracking still says it'll be delivered on the 24th.
Today is the 22nd and as of currently it's still saying 'Shipment info received' at Eindhoven.
Should I be worried?
