You could phone Apple and run the serial number by them, explain you are buying it from someone and not sure if this is stolen etc so wanted to confirm.Hi guys,
Sorry if my question is not in the right thread. I'm going to purchase a new, unboxed MacBook Pro 16 from a person.
What should I look for to be assured that everything is legit?
Naturally, the first thing will be checking the serial number. To be honest, I've never checked it before the purchase of an Apple product (usually I'm buying from Apple or other stores).
What should I see when checking the serial number before the device is activated? Yellow purchase date, warranty?
Thanks in advance!
You cannot make a statement as a suggestion without any information to back it up. Basically, you're just blurting out a suggestion without any stimulus.You should cancel that order immediately.
Closer ... but a workflow by it's definition does not define what the persons needs are. A workflow is a sequence of processes through which a piece of work passes from initiation to completion. What you're asking is a singular workflow, not all needs.What's your workflow?
I ordered the i9 @ 2.3GHz, 2TB SSD, 32GB RAM and the 8GB GPU.I ordered mine on Saturday morning my time (Friday evening in the UK) with an estimate of 31st January to 4th Feb, so the 11th seems quite slow for you @vodoman.
i got the base i9 model with the 1 TB SSD and 16 GB RAM, but decided to get the 8 GB graphics because it’s not that expensive and I thought: why not?
I got a notification from the Deliveries app today to let me know my order has moved from 'Processing' to 'Preparing to Ship.' Absolutely wild that they are shipping it 21 days prior to their estimate. Absolutely not complaining about this, it just seems counter productive to lead potential customers to believe the window from order to ship is so much larger than it really is.Ordered a 16" MBP on Saturday. Estimated delivery date is 11th Feb here in UK.
I ordered an XDR Pro Display on 17th December that arrived today. The massive lead times on all this kit is really putting me off. I'm tempted to cancel and return everything.
I'm sure people will make the point that I should have ordered them both at the same time. My view was that I wanted them to arrive at the same time so that I could have the warranty line up -- I didn't want to have a Pro Display sitting around ticking away at the warranty when I'm unable to use it. Apple shipped my XDR ~3 weeks earlier than the estimated shipping date.
If Apple does deliver the MacBook Pro on the estimated delivery date of 11th Feb, i'll have been waiting 2 months to buy a MacBook and accompanying monitor... Ugh...
Yes! As I understand it, they believe in underpromising and overdelivering. So, rather than tell you it'll be there on Friday if there's any chance it won't be, they'll tell you that it'll be there on Tuesday, then delight you with the information that actually, it'll be there on Friday.Any UK customers have any anecdotal experience around how long it takes from 'preparing to ship' to actually having it at my front door?
Mine was dispatched on Tuesday. The shipping details from Netherlands still haven’t changed. They ship from China to the depot in Netherlands, at which point the tracking starts to actually start doing something.My order was marked as Shipped yesterday, but the estimated delivery is 28th January. That’s a bit unusual because in the past I’ve had laptops arrive within a couple of days from China. Maybe they’re cutting some of the transport costs. Not that I mind and it could still arrive sooner.
pretty sure they won't update over the weekend anyway... Mine shipped Wednesday, and expected to deliver by 31st. Which is an improvement over the 11th Feb I was told at point of sale.Mine was dispatched on Tuesday. The shipping details from Netherlands still haven’t changed.

Taking a while to get from China to Netherlands!
