Mine has shipped!

Got the email about an hour ago. Woo!

Delivery on or before 21/12. Excited!

That's 7 days sooner than the original date, and before Christmas. Long week coming up while I wait.

So seeing as it's coming east to west with the sun, in one very long day it left China at 5am this morning and has since travelled China to Korea, Korea to Khazakhstan, Khazakhstan to Poland.

Are we on a roll? Will it continue tonight to Köln/Bonn?
And... it's off again...

Warsaw, Poland 14/12/2012 21:13 Departure Scan

I reckon it's on UPS 11 (aka 5X11) headed for Köln, see http://www.flightradar24.com/

Do they work on getting orders prepared for shipping over the weekend? Or shall I just put the refreshing on ice for a couple of days.

If our orders are following the previous EU orders, we might see some movement again soon.

It is 5:10am in Shanghai, and previous ones made their 2nd Shanghai Departure Scan (the one after the Export Scan) at 5:02 and 5:39am.

Every time I refresh my status page I close my eyes and hope that it will change. No changes since Dec 3rd. It is so disappointing...

Anyone believing that Apple follows the first in, first out principle should pay attention to this.

My friend and I live in the same town in Sweden ten minutes from each other and we ordered the exact same specification: 27" 3.2GHz i5 3TB Fusion 680MX 8GB with AppleCare and education discount. My order was in two minutes after AppleStore went up on Friday 30th. Due to a trip his order was not in until early morning Sunday 2nd. His is now preparing for shipment, mine is processing. Nice one, Apple.

Kinda sucks, but oh well, Christmas will be fun anyway. And surely it should make it over before the end of the year, right...

Yeah that stinks. Kinda feel sort of wrongly treated. Sadly though, Apple hasn't done anything "wrong" per se as long as they ship in between the 2-3 weeks delivery as they promised when you ordered. Everything else is just luck...or bad luck in your situation I guess But I know how it feels. It wasn't fun on thursday seeing the order still processing when others posted pictures of their imac entering their house all ready.

Bear in mind it took just one day for my system to get from Shanghai to Warsaw. You could still get yours sometime next week.

PS: UPS 11 is 40km from Köln and steadily descending, now at 3000m.

Yes, but neither has actually shipped, so you might yet find that they end up on the same flight. That would be good.

I watched UPS11 land at 2159. I don't know how they managed it so quickly but...
Koeln, Germany 14/12/2012 23:03 Arrival Scan

In 4 minutes they couldn't even have taxied to the bonded warehouse, so I reckon the boxes weren't physically scanned, but rather that they used the codes stored when the boxes were scanned at departure.

With a bit of luck my system will hang on the coattails of Skyenet's and will arrive Monday.

Edit: just after midnight another 'scan' came through, presumably for customs entry into the EU. I guess this one was physical...

So my iMac order, placed 2PM on the 30th which changed status to preparing for shipment this morning has now been shipped. The bizarre thing is the carrier name shows as Syncreon Technology, one I have never heard of before. The estimated delivery date on the tracking screen shows as the 21st, whereas originally it quoted 27th-28th and the Apple email states delivery to be made on or before the 27th.

However it doesn't appear as though you can track the delivery step by step. Hopefully someone can advise me otherwise!

I wonder if it has anything to do with apple communicating with our banks/credit card companies, if you both paid the same way with the same banks and the same amount of money in each account that would be very strange.

Just a theory though, otherwise I can't understand it, it should be first come first served.

When did you order and what was your original expected delivery window!?
Originally ordered at 08:25 on the 30th, right after the store went live. Was originally quoted 27-28th December for delivery.

Went to "preparing to ship" on Thursday at about 11am (UK time) then received the "shipped" email at exactly 18:00 today.

It looks like they're a full week ahead of their estimates, at least for those who ordered on day 1. Good luck to those still waiting.
