    Hello, I ordered my MacBook on the 25th of December and was just wondering if you guys think it will actually come today (30th - This is the due delivery date on the Apple website). I was getting confused with the USP tracker information:

    It seems that something has been sent out from Cologne, but then it also seems like its hopped back to Incheon or something?

    It does look as if it has been despatched from Koln and arrived in South Korea (Incheon) !!

    Would be surprised if you see it today somehow..........

    Good morning charliegibbs,

    My MacBook is still in Incheon since the 29th of December... Did yours left Incheon and arrived in Europe?
    Your MacBook was not in Koln (Cologne), only the papers were sent to get approval from customs.

    Regards and thanks for your information.

    Pierre

    I ordered a new Macbook Pro 13" a couple of weeks ago, and watched the UPS tracking page with some amazement as it went from Shanghai to Japan, Japan to Phillipines (where it apparently encountered "adverse weather conditions"), Phillipines back to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to Dubai, Dubai to Cologne, Cologne to East Midlands, and then East Midlands to Eastleigh airport before being put in a van and delivered - a total of 7 flights!

    Unfortunately, when it got here, although the box was pristine and UPS had done a fine job, the Macbook inside had a dent in the base - from the factory. Bad Apple. Still, it gave me a username.

    That one's gone back, and I'm now waiting on the replacement, which has now left Incheon and seems to be taking the same more standard route to the UK as the OP's..
