    I find this rather odd given on the apple site it claims the following:
    Does anyone have any experience of this? am I really going to have to wait until next month??!!

    Why not order it from Play.com?

    It's not only cheaper and they will actually ship the thing quickly.

    For some reason the online system says I can't cancel the order, even though it's not been shipped :(

    Nope, I will call them on Monday, I'm just a little frustraighted that I didn't think to order it from somewhere else.

    I feel your pain. I ordered mine a week ago, allegedly "ships in 24hrs", allegedly did ship 24hrs later, still no sign of it. No updates to the order status beyond what was there when it was originally shipped i.e. "courier details to be updated shortly". WTF? If I order something from Dabs or Amazon, it arrives within 2 days. Why can't Apple do the same?

    I am certain you will be able to get it from somewhere else quicky and probably cheaper. Apple sometimes seems to ship its products from timbuktu, strange really when they have a main depot in Ireland. Try kelkoo.co.uk.
