Wonder why yours still shows the price, but when I click on config details it doesn't show the price anymore?

What is the average time of waiting after the imac status has change to "preparing for shipping". Just wondering. How long it actually takes to make it and for them to show ship.

Mine changed to preparing for shipment on Christmas Eve (after ordering at 9:25AM on Nov 30th), and it still hasn't shipped. Apple is testing my patience...

From TNT consignment tracker:

--------------

31 Dec 2012 13:14:27 Sydney Shipment In Transit.
30 Dec 2012 10:19:27 Pudong International Airport Shipment In Transit.

I find it amazing that a global organisation like TNT doesn't actually stipulate the date and time with time zone clarification (eg. UTC+/-?).

My girlfriend surprised me on Christmas that she ordered me a 27" iMac! On Christmas morning it was preparing for shipment. Then yesterday, 12/27 it went back to processing. This morning it once again says preparing for shipment. Hopefully this time it ships.

Base 27" with 3TB fusion and magic mouse and trackpad.

BTW She ordered on Dec 3, and the delivery is estimated between Jan 2-8.

I'm pretty sure my iMac speakers are fine. Look they aren't totally awful, but as said I am no audiophile and they sound tin can-like with many of my itunes songs, not all, but many. The iMac speakers aren't horrible, but enough that even I noticed, and now have the Bose Companion 20's and it is a huge improvement. If one rarely listens to music through the Imac i would doubt it would matter.

Took your advice. You were right on. They sound fantastic for my needs. Didn't really want extra clutter on the desk but they make a huge difference in the sound. Much better. Thanks

To me the speakers are a much needed improvement! I am coming from a late 2010 27" iMac and those speakers had no bass response and sounded very much like they were in a tin can.

One of the first things that struck me was how my new 27" improved on the sound. To me the new speakers sound fuller and have some bass response to them without sounding tinny in any way. Sure, if you want bumping and thumping along with super loud volume then nothing beats hooking up external speakers but for me these speakers are actually a big improvement.

This sounds consistent with other reviews I have read. Waiting with baited breath...
