There have been some crazy releases from Apple as well, with long delivery times. There was delivery problems for example with iPhone 5, due to quality control. It's not really fair to compare the two companies, my mistake :)

I can see why Ableton haven't stocked up before the release, they are a small company and having hardware on the shelve for weeks or month is expensive. It's a difficult trade off, taking the risk of stocking up or listening to complaints from customers.

Maybe the demand have been higher than they excpected, who knows...

And the high-end iMac! The ones they announced back in November/December only just appeared in the web store :)

Also remember that EVERY new product from Apple is showing 3-4 weeks delivery right at the announcement, then drops down to 1-2 weeks after a few days in some areas. But they sure don't ship immediately.

I've had reason to look into what it costs to store some crates of products, and it's frighteningly expensive. Even if they were a bigger company with the same storage it would seriously eat into their profits. Some are acting as if they were insulted personally by Ableton because they didn't ship immediately :P

Push being available right now would be a terrible thing for me. I'd spend money I'm supposed to spend on other upgrades first ;)

Yes. Your best bet is with your local retailer now.

Would you be so kind as to tell me who it is in the UK? I might have to get a refund off Abelton if this is true.

Mine still says 2-4 weeks and I ordered the morning it was released.
