There really is no pattern to it. Some people ordered the same machine as I did, hours later, and theirs is preparing for shipment. There are also some people that ordered no BTO options and still not shipping. Some people with trackpad are preparing, some aren't. Some with mouse are preparing, some aren't.

I'm guessing that it depends on what assembly lines got which orders. If line A has faster workers, then they might get a Dec 1 order done before line B gets a midnight Nov 30th order done. I bet all of us that ordered the first day or two will see ours preparing for shipment sometime today

I hope you mean i7? Why buy all the rest and stick with only 2 cores?

It doesn't seem that way because I am on the East Coast and I got preparing for shipment status. I ordered 8AM EST on launch day. I really am starting to think that this has something to do with whether it was assembled in US or China. That is basically the last logical explanation as to why orders placed at a later time are being filled before the same orders placed earlier. Or like the poster said above some lines may be faster than others at producing them. Will be very interesting to see when the next groups status changes.

Ordered a BTO 27" about 10 minutes after they went on sale. Still listed as "processing" BUT we just got a call from the bank's fraud department asking us to confirm a $2200 payment to an "electronic store" that went through today, Dec. 10. I'm taking that as a good sign.

My shipment date is still Dec. 20 -27, at least.

So, again, did anyone with a "preparing for shipment" status order a 3TB Fusion drive.
My thoughts exactly. Bought a 3TB Fusion moments after they went on sale. Mine is still processing. Anyone with a 3TB Fusion having any luck?

I dont want to sound negative but i was called by the credit card company 2 minutes after i purchased the iMAC, to confirm the purchase was made by me, and i still get the "processing items" 26 DEC to 2 JAN...

Should i call Apple and ask them how are the shippments going? maybe get a freebie ^_^

I think you're misinformed - the i5 in the iMac is a quad core processor.

I don't need hypertheading capabilities so I decided to keep that $200.

Does anyone in the Dec 31 - Jan 7 category show their status as preparing for shipment? Mine still shows processing items.

Congrats, what was your original delivery estimate? How did they ship it (Fedex or UPS)?

Oh ok I didn't know. I don't know much about processors except expensive is usually better so for regular tasks there's no performance difference? Except if the software supports hyper threading... Not that I care though, I would have bought everything maxed out anyway

That's great to hear that they're shipping it 2-3 weeks earlier than your original estimated delivery window (especially since you aren't in the first delivery window)! I hope that will be the case for many others.
