    I have just looked at my UPS tracking number on the website, it says my iMacs last location was in Ireland at UPS Ireland in Cork.

    I always thought they shipped from China? Any thoughts on this?

    Here's a thread from last year saying that the default option iMacs ship to the UK from Cork. The BTO ones come direct from China.

    Well mines BTO as well and I ordered with 30 minutes of the store coming up yesterday. They say it will be delivered anytime from this Friday to next Tuesday. But as of yet it still hasn't shipped.

    Mine hasn't been shipped either - ordered within the first 10min of the release. I live in Denmark. Will update when it ships and when it actually arrives.

    Tracked it on UPS and it was Departure Scanned today. But apple has changed my delivery date from Wed 11th to Fri 13th:(. Can't understand why when it was shipped earlier than expected.

    Live in Sweden by the way, maybe the trip is long and bumpy!?

    Hopefully it works out for you. In my experience, UPS usually gives a much larger estimate than they need. Countless times I have received stuff from them before schedule. FedEx on the other hand sticks pretty close to their dates (and sometimes even times).

    I have the exact opposite experience. Here UPS will deliver exactly on the date they are supposed to. Even if my package is sitting here in town for 2 days.

    Fedex on the other will deliver my package as soon as it's in town even if it's early.

    I think it all depends on where you live and the shipping centers. Seems it can vary wildly.

    my iMac has been sitting in the warehouse for a day now and is scheduled to be delivered by UPS tomorrow, it just has 'origin scan' on the tracking details, maybe it will be late, it is looking like it.

    Mine – coming to the UK mainland – just did the same. UPS tracking still says it should arrive tomorrow, but that seems rather optimistic.

    Code:
    Koeln, Germany     05/05/2011 23:32    Arrival Scan
    Dublin, Ireland    05/05/2011 20:57    Departure Scan
    Cork, Ireland      05/05/2011 11:55    Origin Scan
    Ireland            05/05/2011 08:08    Order Processed: Ready for UPS

    it could still arive tomorrow, when i ordered my macbook pro it came from china, it got to Koeln Germany the night before it came, by the morning it was out for delivery

    dont understand why your order which was shipped 1 day after mine is making progress and mine has been in Cork Ireland for 1.5 days

    I paid extra for express, pre-noon delivery; that might account for the difference. Still, it would be pretty rubbish for UPS to delay your shipment just because you didn't pay extra.
