[QUOTE=dryice589;16508692]UPS handles customs at their KY location. I know it seems strange, but it goes through Alaska without going through customs.


Okay friends I will miss you. My IMac will be delivered today, ordered November 30th, around 12:00 noon Eastern. After 24 hours layover in Narita (Tokyo) Japan, 14 hours in Anchorage, Alaska layovers and a nearly 24 hours layover in Louisville, KY, my Mac is in the UPS truck for delivery as promised 12/19/12. Originally it was from 12/24 tip 12/31. Good luck to all of you who are still waiting, things are moving, may you be lucky enough to get FEDEX instead of layover prone UPS. Happy Holidays.Miami, FL, United States

Mine has the exact same tracking info. It's been sitting in Shanghai since the 13th and is due in Baltimore on the 20th -- God willing!

Guess I'll be in a Christmas morning mood tomorrow night
Great news Doc! I am especially interested to hear how you like it since as I remember we have the same build. I7, 680, 1tb fusion. Mine is not due for 3-4 days....

We have liftoff! After sitting for 3.5 days in Kentucky, my iMac finally has a departure scan!

If you need me, I'll be sitting on my front porch with binoculars.

Confusing delivery times

Hi,
I ordered on 30th November (base 27inch with 1Tb Fusion Drive + Apple Care). Original delivery date was given as 3rd or 4th January. I then received notification last week that my order had shipped (on 14th December) and the delivery date moved to 22nd December. Since then, however, I've been unable to track the shipment on the websites mentioned on this forum and the delivery date has moved back to 3rd January.
I just received another email from Apple saying that my order has left Apple and the delivery time was updated to tomorrow (18th December). Only problem is that now the delivery date is back to 3rd January!! All very confusing & I've absolutely no idea when the thing is going to arrive!!
Is anyone else experiencing anything similar?

Mine came today a little before 10 AM Central time.

It's beautiful, but it's taking a long time to set up. I had some problems with Migration Assistant, which uses ethernet or wifi, from my 2010 Mac to the new one. I'm transferring 1 TB of data. Very very very slow.

I ended up backup up all my files to a FW 800 hard drive and deleting them from the old iMac. That left use 250ish GB data to transfer using MA. That was accomplished in about 2 hours. Now I'm copying from the HD to the new iMac via thunderbolt to firewire adapter. It's going pretty fast.

Talking That;s all folks

FEDEX just delivered my thunderbolt/firewire adapter so I can start my data transfer. I can't believe Apple charges $29 for this; glad I got it free.
The iMac is so big and beautiful! My wife asked me why I ordered the 27 inch version; I told her that a bigger one wasn't available!

I will look in at this blog a couple more times; then, adios amigos.

For those still waiting; it's definitely worth the wait.

Finally left kentucky

Well it finally left KY at 4 p.m. local time. Speeding it's way to SoCal. So I have a long days wait tomorrow. Typically UPS doesn't deliver to my house until close to 8 p.m. My last package was even past that, which I think is their cutoff time, normally. Fedex, on the other hand, usually delivers early in the day, so I have plenty of time to play with my new toys.

In fact, if I don't keep my eyes peeled on the front street UPS has been known to drive on with barely a tap on the door EVEN WHEN I AM HOME. I too, hate UPS! But on the other hand there is the condition of the packages when they arrive! USUALLY IN CRUSHED BOXES! (Did I mention I don't care for UPS much?)
