    I know this is stupid, but I'm curios.

    My BTO iMac was assembled in Ireland. So far it went from Cork to Dublin and left Dublin late last night. Shipped with UPS, destination is Geneva, Switzerland.

    Any ideas where it will go next? It seems the iMacs are too heavy to make air transport economical, so it will probably go via train and truck...


    Update: Seems it is taking the long way...

    Cork (IRL) -> Dublin (IRL) -> Tamworth (UK) -> Barking (UK) -> unknown awaiting clearance...

    Mine was assembled in China. I believe it took the following route:

    China -> Korea -> Kazakhstan -> Poland -> Germany -> Denmark

    Argh... should never have started with the tracking. Package left Barking, UK tonight on the way to continental Europe... probably stuck in Brussels, Cologne or Paris now, but hard to tell.
