I ordered my 17" 1.8 with 160GB HD right after the store came up. I received the original email saying thanks, yada, yada, yada. But, I just received the one I always get when my items ship! It says, the following items will be shipped, etc.! I called Apple, but they are soooo busy, so I just hung up. I can hardly wait! I was all set to be patient for 4 weeks, but now. :D

Wow.. that's great to hear. I'm ordering one for my folks, but we're worried that it'll show after I'm gone for school. It'll be such a pain to set up :rolleyes: Hopefully that email was correct!

I can hardly wait for the follow up. But, I have never received that email without a shipping one in the evening...

Plug power cord into wall. Plug in keyboard and mouse. Turn on ;).

I finally got throught to Apple. They said that there is no way it shipped. They said, that the email I received is indicative of product shipment, but that it must have been a system error? I hope they are wrong, but, I doubt it.

Tell that to my dad who almost always plugs the telephone cable into the Ethernet jack. :D

While it would be great if it were true, I highly doubt your iMac is shipping. If Apple even manages to start shipping the iMacs by the current mid-September goal, you should be pleasently surprised. That in itself would be an achievement for Apple nowadays.

I got an email giving me an overview of my order and telling me it is in the process of being processed (stamp out and abolish redundancy! LOL). At the end of that email, it said the ship time was 3-4 weeks and that as soon as it ships I will get an email telling me so. I can't wait for that email! :p

What really blows me away is that with an airport card and internet bluetooth, you don't even have to connect the mouse and keyboard. Those are wireless. That means you have ONE cord going to the computer. That's your power.

Yup I got that same email. But at the bottom it says:

When your order is shipped, we will send you an email notification.

Thank you for shopping at Apple.

Did yours not have that at the bottom of the email?

Mine did say that at the bottom, but, I have never received this second email and the item not ship in the same day. Apple even said I should have not received this one yet. Weird?
