Another week and another moan from me. No Apple reseller in the UK has taken receipt of any MacBook Pros and the latest news from Apple is that they will start shipping at the beginning of next week with delivery to the distributors at the beginning of the week after. Then the distributors will have to ship them out across the UK, so we are looking at about the 22-24th before any stores take delivery. Now to add to that, Apple will not be shipping any CTO orders to distributors until about 2-3 weeks after the standard configs. So we are looking at a delivery to the actual stores of around 5-14th April. I know I have laboured this point many many times in these forums, but I am really, extremely, incredibly ANGRY. In case you haven't seen any of my previous rants, I ordered mine on 11th January through a reseller because Apple would no longer ship to where I live. Mine is of course CTO, because a 100GB 5400 drive in the standard model is just not good enough. So I will be looking at 12-13 weeks between ordering and delivery, or over a quarter of a year. I am expecting a barrage of Apple sympathisers to tell me that this is perfectly reasonable and that Apple originally claimed that they would be shipping the first intel macs in June of this year and that I am therefore lucky to have this now. Of course we knew this would never happen as June was just not a good time for them to release a laptop. It would have been way too early to announce a Merom laptop but too late to announce a Core Duo (Yonah) laptop with the Merom so close to delivery. Just my rant at Apple screwing over the loyal customer base.
