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!
