Tracking n shizz

Oh hi

I've been hanging out in the USA thread like a "douche"
Anyway hi

I ordered on dec 8th and it has now shipped 38 days later!!

Tracking wise I'm a bit confused

I've got an
Order number
Additional order number (???)
Tracking number
Our order reference number


Using "our order reference number" on the ups site

I've done that and I get "2 packages matching your package reference criteria"

Does it come in 2 boxes?
Or is that 2 scans of the same box or something

I had the order confirmation 2 minutes after i put down the phone.

It had a education discount as i am a postgrad student. i wonder if these have less priority?

The order still shows as "processing, despatched: january"

*Edit*

My new Imac came this afternoon...Four days earlier than Apple's predicted date of Friday. And the wait was certainly worth it!

Congratulations! How long did you give it to get to room temperature before booting?

Mine turned up today too - gave it the best part of ten minutes and thought what the hell, can't wit any longer! Fired it up and ran a pixel check then on to the fresh install of the software I want on it plus the installation of the Crucial RAM. Got a few beeps the first time I booted with the new ram but made sure the RAM was seated OK and all fine.

Haven't been able to test out the SSD yet to see if it was worth the investment but all seems very snappy so far!

Ordered on the 8th by the way.

According to the spreadsheet a lot of UK orders from around the 3/4th Jan are being prepared for and being shipped. I ordered my 27" imac on the 4th of jan so fingers crossed for some news soon! I feel sad that we are all waiting so long.

Good stuff. Anything to take care on regards to the RAM install? I mean there's loads of stuff on youtube and the like but having done it, do you set the machine up first and then switch off and install, fire it up again and test the new RAM? Have done it before a few times on a Mac mini and a MacBook Pro so I am hoping it all comes back to me...

I've seen comments about installing the RAM before the first power-up of the machine - but is this really necessary - what if (and I will!) I want to add more RAM to my 16Gb in 6 months time?

The agent I spoke to didn't have more detailed information than what appears on their tracking system. And their system doesn't link with expeditors.com so no further information possible.

Anyone else have a similar experience which had a happy ending to cheer me up?
Exactly what mine says so im expecting it. I think early tomorrow it will update as out for delivery because that will be its next scan point.

I let the iMac start and go through the initial setup first and then on to the pixel check. Thought best to make sure all OK before messing with installing RAM. After that it was an initial go to pop open the door to put the RAM in while the iMAc was upright but it is too fiddly - the door is quite tough to pop open. I simply placed a large towel on the floor then put the protective film back on the screen and laid the Mac down flat. Used a pen (retracted nib!) to push in to pop open the door - as mentioned you need a fair bit of force to do this. Just remember to make sure the RAM is well seated.

End of Jan at the earliest, based on previous. But depends on whether you order a standard or bespoke machine.

I'm curious to know why people are ordering at all... it's worth phoning the stores to see what they have in stock... various configs are available in stores - you just have to be quick!

Have to say very tempted by this. Any sources or threads this is discussed on by some sensible people? Would intuitively like to pop in before first boot but not if it risks damage

I'm curious to know if there are any issues of installing ram before first boot up as I was planning on installing the 16GB ram I have sitting here before I'd switched my iMac on. This will be my first iMac, so I don't want to be doing something that may cause problems.

Yay, delivered today! Up and running and I'm trying to get myself familiar with it.

I haven't tried the backlighting thing yet but I just watched a dvd on it and it looked spectacular.. Can;t wait to learn more. Signing out now! Good luck, it's worth the wait!

when you order they check for funds, and then that hold on that money drops off. it never went anywhere, just the bank expect it to so your available funds show it gone, when it is not.

Thanks for the info.

It would appear from other threads, Apple is giving preferential treatment to its own direct customers first. Many approved retailers especially overseas seem to be lagging. But there's been movement these past 7 days, so I imagine the channel to clear somewhat. I suspect you will hear within the next 7 days...
