I'm curious if anyone who ordered on Dec 3 has seen any updates to their status as you can imagine I was furious with my bank for not processing a payment I made to free balance in one of my cards to purchase the iMac it took until Monday Dec 3 for the balance to be available and I ordered at about 9 am EST of course i'm not getting it before XMAS but just maybe before 2013 the web site had the 3-4 weeks on the time while I was ordering.. and actually i didn't notice it change to January until 2 days later when exactly did that change to Jan anyway? mine is a i7,1tb fusion and the gtx680mx

This is why when people talk to a CSO from Apple they state that all the shipments are expedited. In a sense they are, because that is the shipping product they chose. It is still a 4-5 business day shipment regardless. Peace.
That letter R with a circle around it after UPS Worldwide Expedted means that it is a registered slogan mark. It is like a trademark, but for a slogan. Yes, standard shipping is only for contiguous North America. My point, is that from China, it is the standard 5 day service. There is also:

UPS Worldwide Saver - 2 days from Asia
UPS Worldwide Express - 2-3 days from Asia

Coming from China, UPS Worldwide Expedited is the slowest (cheapest) and standard shipping option. The word expedited means nothing, it is just what they called the shipping option. They probably registered it so companies like Apple could tell their customers that a customer's order had expedited shipping. Typical marketing BS.

Is anyone whose order was on the first UPS planeload this morning from Shanghai to Anchorage showing a AK departure yet on their UPS tracking?

I had a 12/18 delivery date estimate in the Apple shipping email, but UPS tracking has now posted a Scheduled Delivery: Monday 12/17. Recently UPS has been beating their scheduled delivery dates by 1 day here, so I am hoping that once it is moving again they might push that up to Friday 12/14.

No - it says "none", which means you won't be getting it.

Marketing strategy. So you can give it a second thought.

MAGIC TRACKPAD

Ordered 12:11am PST on 11/30.

Still processing. AmEx has a pending charge as of this morning.

Called just now to upgrade to expedited and got the same story...that all the iMacs are being upgraded for free and the was nothing to upgrade...
So after reading that perhaps Apple is considering expedited shipping = standard shipping I just called back and clarified and said I'd be willing to pay the $30 to upgrade my order to 2-3 day shipping...not just "expedited shipping." The response this time was that it was not possible to change the shipping once the order was placed...even though I'm still in "Processing." Hmmm...back to page refreshing. 10:25pm PST...still Processing (even though I ordered at 12:11am PST on 11/30).

Maybe the factory workers are on strike because they don't want to push out so many iMacs by Christmas

I think it was a big assumption from everybody that the departure 10:50pm from Shanghai was getting on a plane. Mine is in this batch but was just scanned "Export Scan" in Shanghai at 2:09pm -- so its still in China. Delivery time has changed to 12/17 before end of day. I think it is unlikely to be significantly sped up beyond this.. of course I'll hold out hope that the transit gods smile upon me and it is delivered on Friday instead but I'm not putting any money on that.

Once again wishing I'd called and asked for expedited shipping!

I tried to do this, but moving from 2-3 day to overnight... as some people on here were given overnight shipping for whatever reason... and the guy told me they don't offer overnight shipping because it's international. I tried explaining the whole "I mean once it arrives" thing but then I figured I was wasting my breath.

I ordered mine at 12:15 that day and I'm still processing. For all we know they just took all the orders from 11/30 and chose to ship them randomly instead of going in order. The best we can do is hope we're part of the next shipment.

Seems random to me. Like many people I ordered within 3 minutes of it going live. No change to the order status.

I ordered my Imac within the first 30 min and my order is still processing. I'm a little worried though since the hold on my card was removed.
