Just received a email notifying today that my credit card has approved the purchase the amount. Does that mean they starting to assemble the iMac?

Interesting as Apple has already shipped the rest of the purchase ie TB Cables and charged the Applecare as well.

I was curious about the Applecare thing as well. My machine isn't slated for delivery until January, yet my Applecare is listed as "completed." I may call them to make sure my 3 years doesn't start until the machine actually exists at least.

Edit: Bummer. My credit card doesn't have so much as a hold on it from Apple.

Mine is indeed on hold now but not reflected in statement just yet. Probably the next thing I see will be the figure in my transaction statement when they are ready to ship it. Fingers crossed that's the way as I have a 19th-24th delivery date on the BTO 27"

My iPhone5 would indicate . . . and my iMac order seems to confirm:

Apple charges the AppleCare immediately.

This immediate charge, unfortunately, bears no relationship to when your product is to be birthed or dropped off by a stork wearing a funny costume.

First, let me say that I do hope that it indeed is a legit sign that your iMac is being built and will be soon shipped!

Apple usually places a hold for the full amount as a temporary authorization. The hold then rolls off in a predetermined period of time that appears to vary based upon the payment method or the institution. For example, when I ordered by rMBP, the accessories where charged immediately (separate holds), but the computer itself was put as a pending transaction and rolled off after about 5 or 7 days. My iMac hold is still in place from 11/30. If it doesn't disappear by this weekend or the date of the hold is updated, then I'll start to get excited.

On a side note, I noticed that the 21.5" BTO iMacs that were originally quoted 7-10 business days before shipment and estimated delivery of Dec. 17 - 21 have started to arrive already. One can only hope (wishful thinking, I know) that we would also see a similar pull-in on the 27" iMacs, which would place delivery at the middle / end of next week for may of us with Dec. 21 - 28 delivery estimate!

I think my payment has gone too, i need to check it.
I noticed yesterday that the blue button under my order which said cancel order has disappeared, so I assume that they've started it therefor I can't change or cancel??
It's still saying processing order though...if you think about it though 2 weeks is next Friday so if they're shipping soon it may just be about right.

Bah! My cancel button is still there. I didn't order until Dec 1 though. We hadn't made up our minds on the 30th. Still hoping to get it between the holidays, despite my Jan 2-8 delivery estimate.

Apple likes to charge you right away for your AppleCare. In the past I've gotten my AppleCare box weeks ahead of the machine it was paired with. I'm not sure if they even bother to ship AppleCare boxes anymore, though, now that they Auto-enroll.

My order still says Delivers 2-3 weeks, Dec 24th-31st.

That is a really good sign!! Hopefully they start shipping soon! My Cancel button is still there, but I ordered later in the day and have a 31st-7th delivery estimate.

It is really interesting that people's cancel buttons are disappearing. Is it only happening in the US.
I ordered as soon as the buttons went live in the UK, about 18 mins after the US and I still have a cancel button.
Anyone else's cancel button gone, and where are you from?

Ordered mine as soon as I got up on the 30th. Shows December 21-28. My card was charged for AppleCare on the 1st which is similar to what's happened before. My card hasn't been charged yet for the iMac.

My original dates were from the 27th to the 3rd, but I called Apple today to ask if they could bring it sooner, they gave me free expedited shipping. Now my dates are from the 21st to the 31st

I'm in the US. I haven't seen anyone who ordered eariler than I did (about 2.50am EST) and my cancel button is still there. Delivery still at Dec 20-27.

It is entirely possible there is some option that is or isn't availble (GPU, fusion drive, etc) that allows some configurations to move forward while others languish (not to be overly dramatic.)

I paid for the expedited, so it's listed at 2-3 days.

I called yesterday to see if I could that bumped to comped or something, and they told me that all the iMacs would be "expedited" more or less, and therefore there was no overnight option. I'm sure that's entirely accurate, so I may try again.
