I ordered a 17″ Macbook Pro on the day the new models were released. Due to speccing it with different hardware it had to be custom built in China. Not a problem usually, but then again there isn’t “usually” a volcano spitting ask all over Europe.
Deliveries halted last week and seeing my Macbook Pro was sitting air-side in Shanghai I had resigned myself to not getting my new machine until next week. However, UPS seem to have come up trumps and my MBP is now sitting at home, just over 24 hours after it was the other side of the world.
It took quite a route to get here though, and I am astounded how it managed to get here so quickly.
I am quick to bash companies for bad service, but on this occasion “well done UPS”
