    And I still haven't received it. I live in Belgium, ordered from the Belgium Apple store on the day of release, and I'm still waiting. Here is what UPS tracking says:

    Expected delivery date is tomorrow, so I'm not complaining it's late, just astonished by the path the package has to travel. Anybody know why?

    It's normal for all MacBook Pros to experience a little wanderlust at some point in their lives.

    My MacBook Pro took the same route as yours, I presume that it's common for the new MPB's to be shipped via that route.

    No it doesn't go from China to Germany back to China. That little section means it is sending paperwork and data about the package to Germany in anticipation of the package arriving there. So it smoothly goes through customs.

    Ok, but I still find it strange that it has to go through Korea, Kazakhstan and Poland... :confused:

    Wow. And to think we have users in the US who don't want to wait a few days for CTO machines.

    Try 4 months!

    Haha no, In the UK we display dates differently: DD/MM/YYYY whereas in the US its obviously MM/DD/YYYY. So its 4 days not 4 months :p

    Nope. Born in the US. Hahaha.

    Now it seems foolish to think that it would take 4 months.

    I waited over a month for my 2010 MBP..

    It went from USA to England to Danmark and then to my country, Iceland.. 1st time it got lost somewhere in Danmark so I had to reorder and then the tax paper got lost so I had to wait 3 days more to get my MBP..
