    i guess I'm looking at a month at least.  And I have to wait for it to be shipped to an third party company to get it to me via an apo address.  thanks for your responses guys

    @pizzafaice i'm in the exact same boat as you. I placed my order on the 26th hoping, futilely, that apple would be able to get my order out by the 10th. I realize that more than likely won't happen. I'm using apo box and they estimate 1-2 weeks shipping time from when they recieve my package so I probably won't have it until the second (maybe first if i'm lucky) week of February.

    yep, i used apo box too.  never used them before but from what everyone's saying, getting the computer together and sent out seems to be the longest part.

    The marketing bumf and availability of iMacs this time round doesnt match up.

     

    The web sites arnt telling of lack of availability to the public. My local high street stores have giant posters stating buy the newfaster  iMac, but the stores dont have any of the new machines in stock and dont know when they will get any. In fact the sales staff think they have the new machines but dont know the difference.

     

     

    Sit back and be very patient folks.

    i used them during my last deployment, i cannot remember if it took a long time to recieve my package from them or not, but they did ship them off the same day they recieved them. as i said before they estimated a 1-2 week delivery time and i know i've had family ship me packages via priority mail and it's gotten to me in about 10-12 days (and we get mail once or twice a week)

    I ordered mine in dec 16... Only thing custom about mine is numeric keyboard......I haven't received updates.....or anything....whatcha think

    You won't get any updates on your order until it ships. At that point you'll get a tracking number and from it you can learn the expected delivery date.

    I cancelled my original order when I found out I could get 32gigs of ram for the same price as 16 via 3rd party so I reordered mine with only 8gigs of ram on the 4th. This is the first time I purchased online where they don't break it down by weeks. From what i've been reading 4-6 weeks

  • Pizzafaice Level 1 (0 points)

    Yep, no updates whatsoever.  And today I wake up to the $2k spent on the computer back in my account.  Strange.

    this is normal...i recommend checking http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1510489&page=37 along with a spreadsheet you'll find linked in there. i'm not sure if anyone  has recieved a shipping estimate. it seems as if it just goes from preparing to ship "january" to the "your order has shipped" email. just a heads up, if production continues at this rate or picks up you could have a message within a week (roughly). according to the spreadsheet there are orders as late as the 12th being shipped (albeit it rare, and the 7-9th seems to be most common). now to be fair there are orders on the 30th that still have yet to be fulfilled. i have quite a ways to go as i ordered on the 26th

    it seems as if apple has done that with almost everyone. they have the charge pending then it may disappear or $1 comes out. either way, i'd check my account to see if it's at least pending. if not call apple and/or your bank to see what's going on.

    My status just changed from "Processing" to "Preparing for shipping" and I was also charged for my order today so I'm sure yours will update soon!

  • laryenhilllvr Level 1 (5 points)

    congratulations! when did you order and when are you expected to get it?

    I ordered my 27" the day the ordering system came on line.  I've had it about three weeks now and can say I am 100% happy in my purchase.  I believe you will find it worth the wait.

    Machine shipped today from Shanghai!  Status never changed to "Preparing for shipment".
