Hi guys, I've been holding this in for quite a while, but I'm about to explode with rage at Apple and their seemingly endless shipping process. I ordered the new Powerbook 15" BTO on the 31st Jan when they were launched, and had an estimated shipping date of 7th Feb which came and went before I was told the order had been pushed back to the 14th Feb. I wasn't TOO bothered by this as although it was an annoyance, I could understand as its a new model and there's a lot of orders for it etc etc etc.... SO.... On the 14th I got an e-mail informing me the order had shipped, with an estimated 6 business days for delivery - again not TOO bad considering where it's shipping from. However, since my order was shipped, it's taken from the 14th Feb until the 21st Feb just to reach the distribution centre in the Netherlands! I phoned today to find out what the hold-up was, and they simply informed me that it's likely to be in the Netherlands for another few days before it gets handed to TNT for onward delivery to the UK, which takes another 3 business days. So essentially, If I assume that if Apple decide to pass my powerbook to TNT tomorrow, it'll be Monday 28th Feb before I'll see it (and that's assuming TNT gets it tomorrow which isn't likely)... One Whole month after I ordered it! WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG? The powerbook has been built and shipped from the Factory, ALL they need to do it give it to TNT. Why does it take forever to get it to the Netherlands then have it spend days lying around before TNT get it? Sorry about the whinge guys, Its just I keep hitting brick walls. Every time I have a rough idea of when it'll arrive, something else comes up to delay it. Why does Apple have such an inefficient and tedious distribution system?
