In my experience they lack any conection with reality. Out of four seperate orders I have placed over the last 19 months all four took at leat a week longer after dispatch to arrive (two weeks longer in the case of one order) over and above the stated 5-7 working days that Apple notes on their site. Dispatch dates are always "whenever they get around to it". Any "ships within 24 hours" items have alwasy taken two day to process the order, and 2 to 3 more days before dispatch (interesting definition of "24 hours"). For items with longer dispatch times things are a little more on target - but Apple has always been let down by their choice of couriers (who appear to deliver by pack-snail and not on vehicles powered by these new-fangeled internal combustion engines).airbedman said:Hi,
Whats the general concencus on Apples estimated UK dispatch/delivery dates, are things normally on schedule, early or late?
