So, I've ordered a new Mac Mini from the Apple Store.  It shipped today via TNT...
If you've ordered online from Apple before, was it overnight shipping?  Also, I've never seen TNT in Wanganui before, what courier delivers it?

Just had a thought... Do they ship straight from china?

Stuff usually comes from either China or Sydney depending on stock levels. TNT is delivered by NZ Couriers (at least in Whakatane).

From experience with my iPhone, it was overnight shipping with TNT in Auckland. The phone came from China.

Have fun with your new Mac Mini Smile

Cool!  Just seen the T&T details, it's coming from Sydney.
Haven't used a Mac since my iMac running Leopard a few years back.  Liking the changes they've made to OS X

Anyone else care to post your experiences with Apple NZ shipping times?

Once I got the shipping notification (shipped out of China) for my iPhone 4, I recall it taking about a week all up. The last leg from Australia was about 2 days, possibly overnight. I'd expect 2-3 working days personally.

3 business days if arriving from AU or 5 business days arriving from CN is my experience and have been consistent (all to CBD address) - iPhone, Macbook, iPod, iPad mini.....list goes on.
