    Hi have just ordered a single 2.8 cpu MP today and the estimated ship date is 29th April and delivery date is 5-6th May!!!! Yikes!

    Seems like quite a while from when they send it to it getting to me.

    Has anyone in the UK order one of these and have some experience of how long they take to arrive??

    A week isn't bad, considering it has to ship from Shanghai.

    Well, I'm from Sweden and got my quadcore from Ireland, with the same shipping time.

    I wouldn't even bother checking it, it's a complete waste of time.

    Its likely the machine is coming from Cork, Ireland. The first estimated time you will see, is the estimated arrival to the UK Distribution Centre (or at least it was for me). My machine arrived over a week early, so I would imagine yours will be pretty quick. Once it is shipped from Ireland, and reaches the distribution centre it may take 24-28 hours to be assigned to a courier, but once it is assigned, it should be with you the following day through TNT.

    Wait until you get a TNT consignment number and you are away.
