Anyone else had the same experience? Ordered MacBook Pro on 31st October - told technical 14 days delivery but in reality expect 6 days. After all machine only coming from Cork to London. Had rapid set of e-mail from apple - confirmed shipping on 3rd Nov ... and waited .. and waited (Nice new apple soon I thought!) On 7th Nov rang apple ... "Oh its in transit but still not with final carrier - so expect perhaps 13th Nov" ..Perhaps its me but Pepy's diary (written 1661-9) shows that it was possible to travel from Cork to London in 8 days (yet apple's courier takes 10 days some 350 years later!!!!) OK perhaps I'm impatient but you would really expect better from Apple. The rest of their service is exemplary and they were really embarassed when I pointed out that it would have got here quicker in 1663!!! sigh! ...I just hope that the horse doesn't lose shoe!.... and I'm certainly not wielding a shovel!!
