    Hi,

    Has anyone had delayed delivery dud to TNT in the last week?
    My mini left Hong Kong about three days ago, and no updates since

    Shipment delayed!

    Same story with my mac mini:

    24 Jun 2010 05:36:28 Hong Kong Shipment In Transit.
    23 Jun 2010 22:51:22 Hong Kong Shipment Received At Transit Point.
    23 Jun 2010 22:33:00 Shenzhen Shipment In Transit.
    23 Jun 2010 20:26:40 Shenzhen Shipment In Transit.

    Apple only states "shipment delayed"!?

    I've been waiting for my Macbook Pro replacement for over a week now. Apple said there is a 'delay'... I'm awaiting a Rep who deals with shipments/customer relations to respond to me... I'm annoyed because if it wasn't coming from China, I would have it by now...

    I ordered at June 17 but have had no delay, actually it should arrive any moment now, as supposed to earlier when it should arrive at July 2nd. Here's my status updates from TNT.

    Tnt

    I get the idea that TNT is pretty slow at updating package status. Mine's meant to be delivered in Barcelona tomorrow (better than the original 6th July date - which made me wonder whether I was the only person on the planet who'd ordered one), but this is what I'm currently seeing:

    pick up date 28 Jun 2010
    destination BARCELONA
    status Exception

    :-(

    Here's my current status. Yesterday when i phoned TNT they said it would still be delivered today. However they rang me back this afternoon and told me it had arrived in Arnhem at 1pm. However this does not tally with the updates below.

    Looks like i will not get it tomorrow since I am in the South West of England

    Mine has updated, though things are hardly clearer (TNT *are* slow at this, aren't they?)

    28 Jun 2010 23:22:00 Eindhoven Shipment In Transit.
    28 Jun 2010 17:37:00 Eindhoven Shipment In Transit.
    28 Jun 2010 17:35:46 Eindhoven Shipment Received At Origin Depot.

    Love thhe way the last two entries appear identical, just with 6 hrs in between :)

    Oh, and my iMac has just apparently died. So that's great news.

    Yes!

    29 Jun 2010 10:19:00 Barcelona Shipment Delivered In Good Condition.

    And it's a little beauty. Can't wait to get it home, even though Spain are playing Portugal tonight and there won't be much time for media center fun.

    Still: delivered in pretty good time. Thanks, TNT :)

    3 reasons

    I can state 3 obvious reasons:

    - If you want a CTO configuration
    - If you are living in the middle of nowhere
    - If you want to take advantage of the 14 days return policy.
    (Most of the local Apple retailers don´t accept it.)

    That´s it.:)
    Cheers

    Ordered on 25/6/10, got keyboard, magic mouse, office, video adapter and ipad keyboard next day, got me excited for nothing!
    Still waiting on the final pieces of the puzzle. Hopefully mac mini tomorrow (4 business days my arse), ipad in a few weeks (7-10 business days was way off).
