Hi, I ordered a MBP last night - my old laptop is really on it's last legs and struggling these days, and it's been hell to hold off buying until the new machines were announced... Anyway - I live in the UK but I'm away from home most of the time (mostly in Belgium), I figured to make sure there's no additional complexity I'd have the machine delivered to my UK address...they projected 3-7 business days for shipping, and I figured that as I'm actually home next Thursday evening for the weekend, this would be ideal for me to collect it when it arrives... The order confirmation tells a different story though: ----- We estimate your order to be shipped 7 business days. We estimate your order will be delivered to your shipping address on or before 30 Oct, 2008 - 31 Oct, 2008. ----- How the hell is 7 business days taking me up to 30th/31st October?! After I go away again on 26th October, I won't have an opportunity to get the MBP until 7th Nov. Can anyone tell me how Apple deliveries usually work regarding this stuff, is the 30/31 Oct a "cover your ass" figure from Apple to allow for exceptional delays, or is it highly likely that I won't get the MBP before then? Oh, not only that - but when I click on the web order number in my confirmation email to view the order tracking, I get a 404 error...I guess that's not normal! Also this will be the first time I'll have owned a Mac, and I have only really used one for maximum 5 minutes at any one time before. Can anyone give me any advice that a new-Mac owner might need? 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB 1066Mz DDR3 SDRM-2x2GB 320GB Serial ATA @ 7200 SuperDrive 8X DL Mini DisplayPort - VGA Adapter Apple Remote Aperture Preinstalled KYBD/User's Guide -B Country Kit-GBR (Thinking of buying AppleCare later from a 3rd party) Cheers, Pete.
