    Swedish Apple Store

    They don't have enough inventory to ship world wide, and it is a U.S. company. Plus I'm sure the U.S. is the largest market it sells too.

    of course, irony is they're probably shipping from China, so will fly over Sweeden on the way :)

    Yeah. But it's hard to see Apple screwing the rest of the world over, again and again.

    I mean... We got Siri in Swedish two days ago. That's right.

    Irony, I`ll tell you what`s Irony I am presently based in Southern China and big surprise 3-4 weeks wait minimum. I had planned to buy ASAP as am heading out on business, by the time I return Skylake will be upon us, Microsoft`s Surface Pro 4 will be close to release, so buying a first generation Macbook will make no sense for me.

    At least you got Siri in Swedish I guess. Other countries can't say the same.

    You want to see how Apple screws over a country? Ireland has no Apple stores but their headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa is in Ireland.

    May also be a lag on non-US keyboards? Pure guess.

    Wait, what?! You got Siri after the rest of the world helped debug it over the last few years? That's not cool.

    Canada here, we use US keyboard.

    still 3-4 weeks wait. the worse part, no in-store display. It's almost if it never existed.

    Good data point. No displays yet here in Boston either as far as I can tell, at least in the stores I called.
