Could you add your details to this spreadsheet, please. It would be great.

Please include the dates when it went to 'preparing for shipment' the first time, when it reverted to 'processing' and when it went back to 'preparing for shipment'

Thank you

How do you lose a 27" iMac!?!

As frustrating as that must be you can be assured Apple will sort you out a replacement ASAP - I'd be surprised if you don't get it within a week from Monday. Also you can maybe get a freebie as a gesture of good will.

As for me...

My order just changed to preparing for shipment!

Of course who knows when it will be shipped but I ordered on December 4th.

27-inch iMac

2.9GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM-2X4GB
1TB Fusion Drive
NVIDIAGeFrc GTX660M 512M GDDR5
APPLE MAGIC MOUSE
Apple WL Kybd+User's Guide-B
COUNTRY KIT-B

So standard 27" plus fusion drive.

I think your iMac it's not lost, but stolen.

In Italy when we write "lost" we generally mean stolen (kind of gives away the nice culture of this nation).

And of course UPS would never say it was lost within their network… it's terrible PR for a carrier. Well who knows maybe they can find it again even if I don't hold my breath for that

This is surely better than the last 3 days when it was just "Out for delivery".

That's a bit of a p1$$er than as i'll have lost a month of cover, time for a mail to Apple

Interestingly the money is still in my bank too, it disappeared at order time and reappeared a day or so later and hasn't gone anywhere since.

Question: when you switched from "Preparing for Shipment" to "Shipped," did you receive an email instantly, or did you see it yourself through Apple first?

Well, you can also be a little bit more proactive yourself, pick up the phone and call UPS/TNT/DHL/whatever for information... Crazy suggestion I know.
