    Hi,

    For all residents in Scandinavia to post updates on their shipment of the new notebooks.

    I ordered my MacBook the October 22th, and yesterday the status was updated to:
    Prepared for Shipment

    Hopefully they are going to dispatch it today.
    Does Merge In Tnst NL Til means Merge in Transit Netherlands? I ordered an iPod nano too :)

    I ordered on the 14th, shipped the 25th, no tracking number given. Rang apple today and they could tell me its been sitting in Holland for two days. Asked them why but they had no answer, probably waiting for parts? I ordered a nano with it but apple promised shipping within 24 hours for it so what are they waiting for? The mail i got states delivery 5-6.11! Incredibly slow shipping!

    The waiting is killing me.

    I ordered mine together with a nano the 15th, shipped the 23rd, and was told it'll arrive 4th-5th of november, but was just "upgraded" to the 3rd. Yay!

    Still, it's sad that it takes so long...Although checking the shipment status every five minutes isn't really making it feel faster...

    Edit:
    MacinJosh: whaaaat?? Your's shipped one day _after_ mine and arrived _today_? Ugh.
    Still can't find out what carrier I have btw...

    Shipped to GÖTEBORG, SE 22 okt 2008
    Estimated delivery 31 oct 2008 (subject to change)
    Current status Delivery on schedule

    Ordered 2.4 MB + nano. Still no tracking number but the status changed to:

    Tracking number
    80807XXXXX
    Carrier
    NL DISTRIBUTION CENTER

    I assume this will be updated with the final tracking number + UPS or TNT

    Still hoping for delivery tomorrow but since I haven't gotten a tracking number yet I guess I guess that's hoping for too much. Too bad since I have exams and stuff so I won't be home on Thu/Fri to sign for it.

    Anyone receive their MB + ipod order yet? How long did it take from the merge in NL to final delivery?

    ordered mine a week ago and today apple said its "Out for delivery". it was in germany yesterday so im guessing denmark today is a fair assumption therefore hopefully tonight!

    Dane waiting for MB+nano here.

    Ordered mine 6 days ago, and I got a tracking number and the message that the shipment is dispatched yesterday.

    The estimated date of delivery is the 7th nov :eek: sure hope that aint true. How long can it take to drive a truck from NL to Denmark!

    nowords, how long did it take from you got the "shipment dispatched" mail to the delivery?

    This waiting is killing me!

    I ordered the 2.4 on the 20th and today it finally changed its status to "Prepared for shipment", so still quite some time to go.

    It's pretty much like having a baby; first you have sex (order), then wait 9 months (building, shipping) and finally the birth (unboxing). Then you hope the baby is cute and healthy (design and hardware flaws).

    I'm in the same boat but, unlike having a baby, the Swedish government doesn't pay parental benefits for Macs.

    Ordered on 25th.

    Status:
    Prepared for Shipment
    Ships: 3 business days
    Delivers: 07 Nov, 2008 - 10 Nov, 2008

    I'll chime in with my info, ordered from Denmark on the 24th.

    Just changed this morning, to Prepared for Shipment.

    Ships: 3 - 5 business days
    Delivers: 05 Nov, 2008 - 10 Nov, 2008

    (2.0 stock Alu Macbook, 8gb Silver Nano, HP PHOTOSMART C448 printer)

    I'm surprised with the fairly long delivery times on this stuff, seems to be a little over the top.

    Ordered my MB the 16th. It shipped 24/25th.

    I contacted :apple: by phone and they told me that all dates in the system currently are wrong.

    I've ordered the 16th, currently it's being merged in the Netherlands. They tell me that I can track the order today or tomorrow. It should be delivered Monday or Tuesday - I don't know if i dare to set my expectations.

    :confused:
