    I ordered the new top end 15" MacBook Pro on Wednesday October 15th and it arrived today in Scotland, UK. Unfortunately, I started my IT Apprenticeship today so no-one was home to collect it, I got a card put through the door saying they will try again tomorrow so I have made sure someone will be in to collect it. It took 5 days to come and that was from China :eek: Amazing! It's in a local TNT depot all alone till tomorrow :(

    Congrats, see if you can collect from the depo. I have been down at 2am in the past to collect parcels here in he UK. UPS are the pain where you can not collect till they have failed delivery. TNT as soon as my BTO arrived from europe, would allow me to collect of from them.

    That's interesting. Website says ships 7 working days and a guy on the phone told me it would take 3 weeks to arrive. Maybe just expectation management?
