    Hey Guys,

    I dont know if this is mentioned already but overnight it seems that Apple UK store has become short of macbooks or something?

    Now all macbooks and mbp's are shipping SAME DAY. This is weird. No product on apple store has ever shipped same day? Are they clearing stock or something?

    Lets hope this is a sign..
    :eek:

    Edit:
    After looking at the rest of the store (sorry i know i should have done that first!) I find that almost all mac range is now shipping the same day bar the 27inch iMac. This is strange though because its never happened before. Maybe apple have somehow cut the process or something?

    Sorry guys.

    I'm confused....i'm asking a chat person, but what did it say previously?

    Edit : she said it means it would arrive 5-7 working days after it has been shipped.

    But you do make an interesting point, previously it had said ships : within 24 hours

    and now it says ships :same day

    in which case i'd be inclined to say it's probably a bit of subtle marketing NLP

    you are more like to buy if told it'll come today, rather than a semi specified time frame. i.e 'within 24 hours'

    Probably trying to flush out the line one last time before having to drop the price and bang em on sale.

    They are clearly dicking around with the store....the 3 boxes are 1 box down.

    A history of smoking green, tells my spidey paranoia sense, that that is the box where they would put NEW MBP's

    on this page

    Yes they are clearly doing something but its a Thursday...they never update anything on a Thursday? Its normally just Tuesdays or Fridays.

    All it is is the graphic for the iPod touch hasn't loaded so the other two boxes have moved over to the left. Next to the first image you can see the small blue square with a question mark in it.

    Panic over. :)

    it might ship the same day, but you probably won't get it until a few days after..

    but yes, i've never seen this before.. it's usually "within 24 hours"...

    good spot :)

    Ok that is weird...

    I have a screenshot anyway but still..why on earth would they do that for just a few hours?

    Testing out the update ready for the new mbp's? :p lol ok just wishful thinking now.

    I do wonder why they are playing around with the site on a thursday though. strange.

    Maybe tomorrow! lol
