MY precious has been sitting in Louieville since yesterday morning. I don't know why they could move it for a whole day. I also don't know why they couldn't send it thru Oakland from Anchorage instead of going so far east. But hey, I am not a UPS "genius", so what do I know? Nothing.

But at least I am not one of the first dayers still waiting for shipping to start. Poor guys! (I am in the first day, first 30 minutes club btw.)

I'm confident that UPS will deliver my iMac on Monday as promised, but for the last 38 agonizing hours I keep refreshing only to once again see "Arrival Scan."

For the sake of my sanity, UPS, change something! "Import Scan." "Welcome to Louisville." "Wish You Were Here."

Anything, I beg of you...

Mine shipped on Wednesday I believe and I have an expected delivery of Wednesday, but interestingly enough we were on the same plane to Louisville and neither of us has gone farther than that. Hmmm.

Yes, I was on that plane too. Wish I could match the Monday delivery! But California is a little further down the road.

So is everyone using/going to be using the Apple Migration Assistant with their new iMacs?

I was going to try this. i have far too many programs/passwords, many of which I've probably misplaced and or lost while moving.

My only question would be how to find and get rid of some of the unused things that I haven touched in years and/or orphaned files from programs I purged so that my new iMac doesn't get cluttered with the legacy junk.

I am interested in this question as well. I don't want to do a fresh install of everything (ugh!), but I'd like to NOT migrate any crap over to my new machine, if it ever gets shipped.

No i love doing a fresh install, especially on a new Mac. I keep all my passwords and serials organized so i have little trouble with fresh installs.

Mine has just started it's truck drive from Sydney to Brisbane
Should get it Monday hopefully, Tuesday morning at the latest (both earlier than Apple's estimated time, which is fine for me).

Slightly off topic - I assume you all know how when you purchase something online your money becomes unavailable in your account until it approves or in Apples case until they ship it.
Well anyway, mine did that as per usual and after it shipped my money became available again instead of leaving my account as would normally happen with any purchase (I purchase a lot online).
So long story short I wonder what happens next. Apple wouldn't be able to just retake the money as my bank would be unaware if the item was actually delivered so they will have to ask me to do it again. Either that or a free iMac in time for Xmas?

Strange indeed. At least for me as I've never ever had this happen.

U mean it stayed at the status preparing for shipment for two days? Or it took 2 days from the factory to your home?
