It had been in moved back twice, and now wouldn't be shipped until approximately 3/10. I had jumped on the 1.25 two weeks ago, so I could get it delivered in the "1-3 days" promised.

Sheesh.

My first experience with Apple is not going as well as I had hoped. Shopping for a 1.42 now...

Some people who ordered the base configuration have been shipped them.

Those of us who placed BTO orders still have to wait another day or two.

After waiting since January for the thing to be built, I cancelled my BTO order yeasterday afternoon and went to the Store and bought a factory model (I don't NEED bluetooth, do I? A combo-drive addition was a LITTLE extravagant.) So I lug my new baby home, power up the iMac for a final run around the block and what does Safari tell me, the new PowerMacs are shipping. Still, I'm glad I got mine in hand, rather than checking the tracking info all weekend. I can stop staring longingly at the 23" Cinema Display box and actually hook the thing up!

So can I add a combodrive later?:confused:

April 3? I put my order in this morning, and it shows as March 27.:rolleyes:

It appears the random number generator routine in OS X works very well...

foxer... do tell how it is, please..

Now your making me SO tempeted to cancel my order and just jump in the car and drive 5 minutes to the local mac store and get me stock 1.42. I can easly just add ram myself either from apple or another place. Dam and I just remembered I have to run to that same mall tonight anyway to get something else I need. When I walk by the apple store its gonna kill me because I know Im just gonna keep waiting because well Ive waited this long it will kind of be like it was for no reason if I just cancel and get it there.

...however the thought of pitching a perfectly good 9000 video card was a little too wasteful for even me. I'm going to just hang on for my Apple Store order, despite the fact there are two Apple retail stores within 30-minutes of me. :rolleyes:

After all that, I never opened it last night. Admirable self-denial? No. My wife wanted to go to the mall, and since my iPod was waiting to be picked up after being serviced (this would be the Apple store near my house, not the one near my office where I had been earlier in the day) I relented. Tonight is my Christmas in March...

Looking for a reason to leave work early...;)

Everything is so fast nowadays. I remember ordering a new canopy for my pickup in the 80's and it took 8 months to arrive. Mind you I live in northern Canada, where there used to be a saying that went, "Why do today what can be done tomorrow?" Imagination is usually better than reality which is why the wait often turns out to be the best part.:)

..besides which, there will always be a next "better Mac". I used a Mac Classic for 9 years, before purchasing a nearly new 580CD to replace it. Now I'm typing on a 500Mhz iMac. Real cutting edge technology compared to that classic, and I can dream of the as yet mythical 4 GHz dual processor tower.. That's half the fun.
