I can't help but feel this whole situation makes a mockery of those who ordered within 1 minute of the store going up that are still stuck on "processing".

I swear the shipping order is done by lottery.

Anyway, I hope you have fun setting it up and trying it out! Exciting!

I would like to know how noticeably better the screen resolution is on the new iMac over the older versions.

It's the same. The resolution has never changed for 27" models. The new one has less glare and apparently looks more vivid but the resolution is the same.

Initial impressions even turned off side by side the new one has noticeably less glare. With black glossy powered off screen I can see about 20% of my reflection whereas my 2009 model looks like a mirror.

I'm going to be clearing my desk and giving it a good wipe-down ahead of receiving mine. So will likely do an unboxing to remember it by

The 27" seems to have a serious flaw...

They seem to be stuck at a 90 degree angle.
Hope they get that fixed.

I don't know exactly how the shipping order works. I ordered at 6-7am EST and it still processing with delivery dates of 24-31st.

I am fairly sure that a lot of it has to do with the options that people picked. Some options = longer time to wait.

I don't think so. I have seen identical configs to mine that were ordered many hours after me already have confirmed shipping.

Whatever process Apple is using, it does not seem to have a pattern that we can determine.

My order was completed by 3:08 AM EST on 11/30. 27"/3.4i7/1tbFusion/680mx. So about 8 minutes after ordering went live.

I had 2-3 day expedited shipping with original date of Dec 21-28.

Arriving 9 days early I'd say Apple was successful.

Unfortunately have a swamped day so not sure how much testing I can do. I will report back any results.

I also have 2009 27" so I can compare speed & screens this way.

Enjoy all those who get them today and in the near future!
