See title. You'd think by spending over a £1000, the least they'd do is provide express shipping, but 3 weeks shipping time??? a joke!

Depends. If you're buying a built-to-order system, then they have to include the time it takes to actually manufacture the system. I don't know why they can't offer a variety of configs, but apparently not. Especially annoying where a lot of the time you have to pay more for upgrades, causing something to take longer to come. Honestly, if apple weren't so bad to solder the parts down, then I'd just save my money on the base model and make manual upgrades, but that's somewhat irrelevant.

EDIT: I don't think Coronavirus is helping with Apple needing to enforce social distancing in it's warehouses but from what I've gathered over time it will still take a bit too long.

£100, really? That's disgusting.

I can get a replacement keyboard for my HP Elitebook for £40, and I can actually save money and do it myself. Though taking it to a shop would not be that much more expensive, still under £100. Apple really are a joke in my eyes, I don't get how that's acceptable.

Maybe they enforce social distancing in their warehouse to protect the staff, so are limited on the number they can send each day. You can't pop into an Apple store.

I can't really disagree, their phones are sh*t tbh. I just ordered an ipad pro, i tried lookingg for similar alternatives because I am all for spending less and on other brands but i just couldn't find anything
