    here's my take:

    your package was not shipped to NL.

    data regarding your package was exchanged..hence the "Export Scan".....then later after clearance was received to ship the package internationally you got a Departure Scan

    then your package went form china, to korea, then flew to poland(probably a european distribution hub)..where it will make its way to you in london?

    Is it possible that only the paperwork went to the Netherlands? Look at the times displayed. Perhaps the customs brokerage is done for all of Europe in the NL, and then once its cleared it left Korea for Poland. Still, a very well travelled system.

    I can relate, having watched a system I ordered criss-cross North America several times. Eventually it went from California (on the west coast) to British Colombia (also on the west coast, but in Canada) via Chicago, Montreal, and Winnipeg.

    I had another Apple part cross from the US into Canada about 30 km from where I live, but instead of turning left and and getting delivered, it turned right and travelled 3600+ km to Toronto, before coming back. I wonder how many carbon credits that trip would have needed to break even.

    Hope you get your system soon!

    Maybe it'll visit Venice, Athens and Damascus first. :)

    Anyway I hope I'll receive it tom or thursday, my 1Ghz powerbook is so tired..

    The only thing I heard that in the Netherlands they merge Macbooks from China with the additional accessories you ordered with them. After merging they will continue the travel heading to their destination.
    I only can't explain Korea and Poland :D

    ibanana, my tracking looks exactly the same.
    Just above that table, I have a message that says: "Your packet is on time with a planned delivery time at 23/10/2008"

    So normally I shall receive my MBP tomorrow! (Belgium)
