    They tend to ship them direct from where they're produced, by ground. So China or the Czech Republic by rubbish ground couriers. They stop EVERYWHERE on the way as well, if you look at the shipping logs :/

    Sometimes they come from Ireland, when they do it's quick. It's a lottery when you buy from Apple especially with machines.

    Yeah, tends to be pretty much bang on from my experience and what I've heard from others. It's annoying.

    My mini shipped Monday, jumped from estimated delivery next Tuesday to arriving Friday once ups got it, was a nice supprise. Total order time was 8 days from the Friday before ( non standard spec). Came via Ireland.
    Well at least the shipping is free :)
