    Where did you order it from? When you ordered it there should have been a shipping date. I got mine from Amazon and it came within two days.

    I got it from the online apple store (www.apple.com/uk) so how long does it normally take? Anybody know from experience?

    I ordered mine, and Apple had it marked ready for shipment right away, Fedex took three days to even pick it up.

    I had it in like ten days from purchase. I've never had time go by so slowly!

    Mine took 4 days due to it qualitfying as a custom order (because I added a DVI adaptor!)

    I'd say expect 2-3 days.

    A week or so if it comes from China, 24 hours or so if it comes from the UK.

    I ordered mine last Sunday night and it shipped from China because I upgraded to a 7200 RPM 200 gig HD. It would have arrived today if I had gotten it shipped to my home. Needless to say, I will get it Monday at work.

    It probably won't take that long at all because you're in Australia.

    I too was thinking the same thing.

    I'd suggest "arrive".

    I would also suggest lifting our minds out of the gutter, but then we wouldn't be real men, would we?

    Well... you can walk into an apple store and leave with a MacBook, but you need to wait for it to be shipped if ordered online. Everything else stays the same.

    Is yours a custom spec? If you have bought a stock model it should come from the UK, if it's got anything upgraded (HD, RAM. ect) it will qualify as custom and come from China

    I ordered mine online on tuesday last week at around 4pm, it came 11am the next day to my complete and utter surprise.

    I suppose it depends where its being shipped from and when.
