Delivery Thread for 27" iMac December Orders

I know there are some stragglers who placed orders on November 30 but haven't shipped (I feel your anxiety!), but I wanted to dedicate a thread for the delivery status of those who ordered in December. Order date, location, config, shipping status.

December 3
U.S.
i5 2.9 ghz, 8 gb ram, 1 tb fusion drive
Still "processing" and cancelable.

Hey, Dip... Can't you please make another diagram? Would be awesome to see if the trend we saw in the first one continues.
Alto I'm pretty sure people who got their order forgets to update the chart.

Just called Apple and got the "All I can see is the same thing you can see on the homepage" Ordered Nov 30.

Apple placed a hold on my $ today. It is only slightly concerning that I am excited about money coming out of my account versus into it

How long is it typically from Apple checking for funds to prepping for shipment?

Dec 1 afternoon order- now on the truck for delivery

I ordered in the afternoon of Dec 1 with a promised delivery of 12/31 to 1-7. I was stuck "in processing" until this Tuesday. Then things started happening fast. I got notice of shipping with an estimated delivery of Dec 28. But the actual package got to Oklahoma City last night, and is now on the truck for delivery.

I ordered the 27 inch 3.4 I7, with the 2 GB graphics, 1 TB drive and 8 GB. I will add in 16 GB of memory and a Lacie external Thunderbolt 256 GB SSD that will be my main boot drive.

This marks a return to the Apple fold for me. I got my start in I.T. doing tech support for an Apple re seller when the dream machine was a Mac SE/30.

This makes for a GREAT Christmas surprise. I definitely never anticipated delivery before the end of December. Merry Christmas everyone!

ok so heres an important question for some of you guys...did you change your order at anytime after your initial order? If so has it impacted your delivery time at all? I for one ordered on dec 5, updated to the ssd a week later and was reassured by the guy from apple that it made no difference in shipping times since at that time nothing would be shipping for a couple weeks anyway...But now the longer time passes with still "processing" and people who ordered 2 weeks after me are getting theirs, im starting to get pissed and feel like i was misled slightly...so anyone else change their order and what if any impact did it have on your delivery time?

? I initially ordered on 31. november, but was told that no changes were possible to my order, so I had to delete my initial order and order again on the 7th. I'm pretty sure that when you changed your order, it was made as a complete new order on that day.

Apple ripped me off!

I received my new iMac yesterday with 1TB fusion drive (ordered Dec 11). Wow, that drive is fast! Sadly, I've been using the retina display ipad for 30 days now, and it blows away the screen clarity on the imac. I wish it had retina!

And apple also configured my system incorrectly. I ordered and PAID for 16GB of RAM, and yet the system only has 8. A $200 upgrade - that wasn't added!

I am pissed off. Can you imagine? They better do something for me, other than just send out a RAM card and expect me to install it.

Be sure to check your memory, dont just assume it's correct!

Preparing!

Ordered 12/15, went to preparing this morning, although still only says "January."

My credit card charge went through this morning also, so it's not necessarily true that the CC charge hits a day or two in advance...

OK, here we go....

I have been following both the Reseller Threads and the December Order Thread since the absolute beginning of these threads.

First of all, great work to everybody, very cooperative and informative!

Now I am ready to participate and really fed up just reading all the replies every day, it's time I put in some information myself.

I have ordered the 27' Base Model (trackpad) + Superdrive + Devlivery in January!!! through a reseller in Germany on the 6th of December, I would have ordered earlier, but the reseller was on a holiday till the 6th.
The reason I have ordered at a reseller was because I could order through work and thought that it would be quick and reliable.
I was quite wrong.....!

I have heard nothing else than, Apple does not respond, the order has no delivery date, Apple has not confirmed yet, the order isn't processing yet, etc.

I am waiting 8 weeks now, and reaaaally getting annoyed at the way Apple is taking care of things. It's obviously not the resellers fault. All resellers around the globe are left in the dark completely in my opinion! Just check out the reseller threads, it's really not just the ones I have spoken with.
I visited a local reseller here in Germany today, one of several in the city.
I provided him with a few questions, such as how is Apple handling you at the moment regarding the new iMac?
And guess what....?
Same story, no news from Apple, only the Apple store has a few, bla, bla, bla....

I asked him if he was angry or annoyed, and of course he was, but as you can imagine... He said, what can you do about the way Apple takes care of things regarding the new iMac delivery. They are in charge! This way of doing things is hurting the resellers in my opinion. This has been stated in the reseller threads before, and I think it's true.

I am not gonna repeat the replies in all threads I have read, that resellers are receiving their iMacs a bit slower than Apple itself. That was ok for me, but reading three threads for the past 2 months waiting for it.....
I have seen and heard enough!
I am a big and longtime Apple user, but my whole experience up to receiving my new iMac is making me sick at the moment! Disgusting!

The only thing I can do is be patient, and share my story here, knowing that it is one more reply in all threads going on about the new iMac.

I wish those who wait with me good luck, and those who have received their machine the best times!

Waiting.....

So apple decided to put the charge through and my cc company, for the second time, auto-locked my card without calling me to question the charge. Apple's website now says I need to reorder. I've been on hold with apple support for a half hour.

I'm beyond pissed off.

What? That's weird. Try calling in. The same thing happened with me, Apple charged my account, cc company thought it was weird and closed my credit card. I called into Apple, paid with a new card and now it's preparing for shipment 30 minutes after the call.


On another note, do you guys know if packages go out for shipment during the weekend? Preparing for shipment on a Friday... I hope it doesn't wait until Monday to actually go out. Oh well, either way I'm happy it's changed status.
