    It is quite bizarre that BestBuy in the US still has units for whereas Apple Stores and customers already placed orders outside of the US still have 4-6 week. Anyone outside of the US received shipping confirmation or delivery ?

    I quite agree. It's clear that Apple considers Europe and the rest of the world as a provincial backwater.

    Their flagship stores in major capital cities don't have stock for demo, while a third party seller like Best Buy has stock in the U.S.

    It leaves a bad taste for those that are watching their American forum-mates get deliveries while they have to purchase blind and wait weeks for the privilege.

    Another thing to think about is the strengthening of the US Dollar. For many years now, the USD has weakened against foreign currency, especially the Euro\GBP\JPY. Now that the dollar has rebounded, there's a lot of upside for Apple to re-focus its energy to selling into the US. The cost of doing business here is far less than many of the EU countries, and Apple is a business after all.

    The Euro was very strong for many years, and now the tides are shifting, so it may be a sign of a more broad shift to investing in the US.
