    Hello, I've order the lg ULTRAFINE 4k ten days ago, and still processing, for a delivery in February ;(

    Do you think I can receive it earlier than February in France ?

    Someone in France receive it ?

    You may find them in an Apple Store. They've been arriving in other European stores.

    The shipping estimates are mental. 8-10 weeks for a monitor?! I'm also quoted mid to late February as delivery window.
    I could order a car and have it go through production and delivery in half that time.

    I also have no way of picking it up in store, as there are no Apple Stores in Norway, and no other stores stock them.

    I suspect it's down to Apple quoting unrealistically long delivery times in order to sell less now that they are on sale.
    Prediction: Once we get into 2017 and the prices revert to normal, i suspect the shipping estimates will improve drastically.

    The estimates are way longer than what actually happens. I was quoted 5-7 weeks and at arrived in 13 days.

    That's good to hear! I might see mine (that i ordered December 14th) arriving just over new years then? :)

    Edit: How long did the shipping take? Do they ship them from China like the MBP's? :)

    I'm in the UK and it came from Apple's UK warehouse. Got a shipping notification late in the evening and it arrived the next morning. This was in the middle of November and was a big shock because it was due after Christmas!

    I see! Must've been a surprise then yeah.
    I'll probably see it shipped from Eindhoven/Netherlands then. Maybe if i'm very lucky, i'll have it between Christmas and New Years :)

    Also, how do you like it? I haven't found any solid reviews yet, so i feel like i'm taking a bit of a chance here.

    thank for your answers ! I need to call my local Apple Store to know if they have in stock.

    And like @keviig i'm very curious about the experience with this monitor. Not many review on the web, especially with a MacBook Pro 13 . My biggest fear is the size, i used to have 27 inch monitor, and I'm afraid to work on a 21 inch. (So small ;(

    I'm a Webdesigner and i see this post (about scaling especially):
    https://bjango.com/articles/macexternaldisplays/

    And I understand why i've a bad feeling with the lg 27ud88.

    But I can't spend 1000$ for the 27 ultrafine (and 5k with the MacBook Pro 13 make me suspicious about the performances, lagging and other). I can buy it but I don't want to spend 1000$ in a monitor !!!

    My local Apple Store have a Ultrafine 4k, so I've it.

    I'm very happy with it :
    Macbook Pro 13 + ultrafine : no ui lag, charging well, I don't find how to manage the brightness with the MacBook Pro touchbar but I don't care !!

    I found again the gorgeous display of the 5k iMac !! With the shiny display, good scaling !

    And I think I can satisfy myself with 21 inch (a little small but enough I hope, I'll see in time, like I said I can't justify to me to spend the double price for 6 inch)

    The brightness can be adjusted with an external keyboard or in System Preferences. The Touch Bar will only adjust the MacBook's screen. :)
