Yours is coming to the US via FedEx 2-3 day? I have no idea why it would go to Singapore if it's manufactured in China...

Heheh my guess is it was scanned at 9:54AM EST, left at 10:22AM EST and will arrive in TN about 3-1/2 hours from now. Which means... Depending on how far the drive is/how many stops there are between Memphis and where you're at, you could see a package tomorrow or Friday.

After mine left Anchorage at the same time, it arrived at 6:52 AM in Louisville, Kentucky.
It's been sitting there ever since.

Yup, I'm in the same boat, if it actually left AK, then it's more then likely in KY and just didn't get it's arrival scan, the next scan you see will probably be a departure to wherever tonight .... hopefully ....

I find it very wrong for people like you who placed their orders within the first few minutes of Apple releasing the gates for orders, and your order is still processing, yet many people who placed their orders well after you did are already having their iMacs shipped. I would call Apple and complain about it if I were you.

I don't think it would do much good, to be honest. I think that area is likely out of their hands. It definitely is a shame, though.

I agree was in your shoes just yesterday...at the same time though we're not really guaranteed anything. They said before its released well get them in late December. We ordered and got delivery dates of Dec.21 or whatever onward so it's not like anything changed. If they deliver outside of that timeframe then we can complain.

I think some were just done quicker different plants more overtime for certain workers or whatever.

Mine is the same, the flight from Anchorage arrived in Louisville early this morning. Seems UPS doesn't scan on arrival just departure until it arrives at the final destination.

Likely true. Apple hasn't lied to me about delivery dates. It's just when you have the Power of The Internet telling you that others are shipping/being delivered, it does make you wonder...

Every time I read one of these it ups my hopes that mine will ship soon.

Not that I care if mine ships, of course.

Thoughts on 27" iMac rollout

There is no doubt that there is no rhyme or reason how Apple has determined which orders to fill first.

I do believe that Apple should get credit for doing everything they can to fill the preorders for a product that by all indications was going to be in short supply initially.

They have done something in this rollout that I don't remember them doing in the past. They have always devoted a portion of the manufacturing capacity to build stock for the retail stores.

They haven't done that this time. If you place an order today you will see that the 27" model won't be available in the stores until January.

I just feel they do deserve some credit for attempting to meet the preorder demand.

They held the package at the local facility for two days until Amazon called FedEx for me and Memphis call them and force them to hand me my package. It's actually the second time I've had an argument with them over an address. First one was my childhood home, a house that was less than 2 blocks from the hospital on the third or fourth busiest street in town. When picking the package up at the local facility I turned around to the line of people behind me asking if they remembered seeing the house. They all raised their hands.

I live in a smaller city of about 20,000 people with a neighboring city across the river of 60,000. There's another 10,000 or so in the surrounding area. There's ONE FedEx truck for this entire area while UPS has two warehouses and a legion of trucks with routes similar to postmen. FedEx here is idiotic and incompetent. I'm not looking forward at all to delivery (or not) of my iMac.

Meanwhile I have the mobile phone number of my area's UPS driver.

May be we should collect order numbers of the ones that already have their 27" shipped and call CSRs to compare and complaint? I think it is safe to share those.

27" i7, 8GB, 1TB Fusion and 680MX, ordered on 11/30 @ 12:14am, CC charge on 12/11 @ 1.46am... still processing

I feel you man.. I ordered one myself and I live here in Hong Kong. It is quite ridiculous how orders placed in the US are arriving faster than those placed here in Asia. Totally ridiculous. My guess is that they are just piling up all the orders for Asia and then ship once they have accumulated a certain amount just to reduce shipping costs..

I'm also in the first UPS batch that left ANC at 9:10 last night.

From what an earlier poster in this thread learned via an uncle who works at UPS, they're sitting in Louisville and will be processed based on volume of other packages and staffing. If we're lucky, that happens in the next few hours and these get onto flights and trucks late tonight/early tomorrow and we get them tomorrow or more likely Friday. Alternatively they will be processed tomorrow, shipped out Friday and delivered Monday.
