Perhaps its delayed because they're shipping you a silent upgrade to the (to be announced on Monday [the new Tuesday]) Macbook Amateur.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I'm so sorry. I was afraid that my iMac wouldn't show up as promised on Tuesday, but I got lucky and it did. Mine was coming from Amazon and not Apple, though.

It's a long way from China to your neck of the woods and since you don't have a landing strip in your backyard that can accomadate a fully loaded WideBody Aircraft you will just have to wait!

You lose one day to International Date Line ?
You lose one day to customs. (UPS RED from Canada takes two days)
You don't count Saturday.
You don't count Sunday.
Sounds about right.

You can lose another day if you take the time to read all the fine print. smiling smiley

Maybe they count overnight only from the time it reaches the US.
