    Hi guys,
    I've just received the tracking number for my replaced iMac 27''.
    From TNT Web site I can see that it's going to be shipped from Shangai.
    Is that normal ?
    Since I live in Europe (Italy) I believed they were shipped from Holland or Ireland.

    refurbs usually ship from California and new ones from China, but the label on the refurb imac I received is kind of weird, it has Apple Canada address listed as the shipper on the label on the box, but tracking shows it came from California. Anyone know why this is? possibly just in case it needs to be returned to sender it goes to Apple Canada rather than in the US as I am located in Canada just minutes away from that office?

    They ship from the free trade zone in Shanghai.

    Some Macs are built in Singapore I guess. You can check where and when it was built from here.

    BTW, where do you live if it has taken that long?

    I clicked on the above line and entered my serial number and it said it didn't compute. So not sure where mine came from, but I love it anyway.

    AFAIK the imacs sent from Singapore are actually made in shanghai.

    Singapore is just a warehouse for most southeast asia country.

    You used to be able to track shipments from Shanghai with an excellent website which would give you information before your box was handed over to the local courier. Can't remember what it was called or if it even still exists.

    Sure it had something to do with a monkey (apecode???) although that might be my imagination getting the better of me :)
