Direct from Apple? Easy and efficient but more like 3-4 days IME.

How far out of a main centre are you?  No opportunity to go and physically buy?

Yea based in Alexandra, Was looking for an ascent tech type deal, order and in the mailbox the next day. Closest stores an hour away. 


We are rural but get excellent service from our rural postie I get Courierpost and NZC overnight packages by lunch next day if they are overnight service.




I was hoping there would be a reliable online retailer, with some control over dispatch. 


I tried to order a printer last week of warehouse stationary from a store over the phone "never again"

I bought a MacBook from Apple it took 24hrs to be delivered from Sydney to Hastings. Rural probably would be another day. They have priority shipping with FedEx, I was blown away by their delivery  service.

You can enter your postcode on the Apple site before you order and it will tell you when you will get it.
