    Has anyone had any experience on the general wait time the build-to-order Macbook M7 (1.3) takes to get delivered from your initial order date?

    I'm looking at the Apple UK site and if I order today, 23rd April, they deliver 4th May - 6th May.

    Any experience on a shorter time frame?

    I ordered mine through the swedish Apple Store on the 19th, it was shipped yesterday but I haven't received a tracking number yet. Initially it said delivery 2-4th May, now it is listed as 9th May. I did order the AV adapter - if I remember correctly the two orders will be merged and packaged in Germany.

    I was hoping for shorter wait times not longer. Bummer.

    9th of May? We'll be on 7th Gen by then.

    I ordered the m7 as soon as the store started working on Tuesday afternoon. It didn't ship until late Thursday UK time. It won't be here until Wednesday. So there's a fair wait.

    Ordered my M7 soon after the store went up again and it's arriving on Wednesday next week (UK).

    Was that the predicted delivery date or did the delivery date change?

    I wonder why they're taking so long...I ordered my M3 late Thursday afternoon, and as I write this it's Saturday afternoon and it is already only a couple cities away! Went from China to Midwest USA in 2 days time

    My m7 has been sat in China for four days now. So much for UPS "Expedited" shipping, FFS...

    In my case, although Apple says the delivery will be on the 4th or 5th, UPS lists the delivery on the 27th.

    45 days? How did you manage to get that?

    I'm waiting for my m7 to show up which will take another week, and already bought an m5 from the store in the meantime; but only have 14 days to return it.

    My SG m7/512 ordered Thursday is now preparing for shipment as of early Monday morning.

    Ordered through our company's business portal and with the discounts and promotions, the M7 model is the same price as a m5 at full retail price.

    Still the same... Is someone like me? I ordered accesories with it, and I chose that accesories and macbook are delivered in one package/same time. Could this have affected the waiting time?

    Hi, In the UK, 512gb/m7: ordered on Saturday 23rd and it shipped this morning. Stupidly asked for it to be merged with another item so not sure if that is going to slow down the delivery!!

    Estimated date is Tuesday 3rd May. Problem is I fly off the US for 3 weeks on Monday 2nd!! Heres wishing it arrives early.

    Anybody have a proper tracking number for the item as I don't seem to be able to track it yet, all I know is that it has been dispatched.

    It says: "Please Note: Your items dispatched from different locations and will be merged together before delivery. Once merged, your Order Status will be updated with carrier and tracking information (at least 48 business hours before your estimated delivery date)."

    I asked for the items to be merged too - stupid in hindsight. I have the same message about tracking no. 48 hours prior to delivery.

    Try going on the UPS website and tracking by reference (i.e. not by number) and type in your Apple order number. You may then be able to track it that way.

    I ordered an M7 on Tuesday the 19th around 2 PM Eastern time (US) and I shipped to my store. It originally said it would arrive 4/29. Then it shipped on Friday with an estimated arrival of 4/27. Lo and behold, I got an email today and I picked it up at lunchtime (4/25). I am posting this from my M7. So for me, it took less than a week!

    Thanks for the advise but it didn't work. I have a feeling it will be UK mail who deliver it as well.
    --- Post Merged, Apr 25, 2016 ---
    My worry is it will add at least 1 day delay

    Congrats. You managed to run any benchmarks on it yet? Geek bench etc?
