5 weeks ago I got a 27" Mac from the apple store after 3 days I noticed light coming from the black part around the screen. It looked like a scratch from the inside. Maybe the way it was put together. I ended up bringing it back for a full refund and ordered one online. If the new one that got delivered today has the same issue I'm just gonna keep i won't b able to wait 30+ days for replacement

My iMac 27 (3.4ghz, 768gb SSD, 680MX) is on my desk up and running.
Still quality checking the product, but so far looking good (yet to try some real stressing tests like gaming however). This is one amazing machine. To you who are still waiting, keep hanging in there..

Ordered on 7/12.

I let them know about my frustration seeing the exact same config ordered 5 days after me ship and they apologized and said "hopefully" mine will ship in the next few days...no offer of free stuff, though

Great illustrative example using Domino's BTW!
I'm with you, I also ordered this config on 12/22 and am still waiting. This is probably a long shot but have we considered type of credit card used as a variable here? I'm just not sure what else it could be at this point. I used my Discover because I've got a 0% apr right now, and I'm wondering if I would have got it sooner had I used my amex.

Mine just got delivered!

27" i7, 3TB Fusion, 680MX, 8GB (additional 16GB Crucial waiting at home!)

Ordered: 12/26
Preparing: 1/13
Shipped: 1/14
Delivered: 1/17

Now I somehow have to figure out how to get through an entire workday with it just sitting under my desk taunting me...

I hope everyone else gets theirs soon! Seems production has ramped up a bit.

I do think that Apple needs to take a look at it's communication with customers......they could learn a few things from Domino's Pizza.......when I order a Domino's Pizza I can track it from order to final delivery. (although I realize there are major differences between a pizza and a computer I can guarantee you there are not as many people calling Domino's these days demanding to know where their pizza is).

If you feel that Apple has slighted you or that they have not lived up to your expectations then they need to know what they need to do to make you a happy customer......a good business always takes this route.

I hope you receive a "preparing for shipment" notification today.

it shipped today, but only 1 month later. Was kinda peeved to see a lot of others who ordered well after me get their orders shipped out well before me.

Here's the checklist I used, if it helps...

Dead pixels?
Backlight bleed?
Stuck pixels?
Scratches on aluminum?
Scratches on glass?
Yellowing on screen?
Uniform color across screen?
Level display or crooked?
Image Retention?
Fan noise?
CPU matches order?
GPU matches order?
RAM matches order?
Camera works?
Speakers work?
Fusion drive matches order?
Brand of hard disk?

If u call them they will put in the fron of the line so it would be less time i just can't stand spending 2,700 on a computer and it not being perfect.

Dec 22 order goes Preparing for Shipment

My order (2.9, 1TB fusion) changed to Preparing for Shipment this morning. Hopefully that breaks the Dec 22 jinx and orders from that date will start moving now.

Choose "About this Mac" under Apple Menu
Click on "More Info..." button
Click on "System Report..." button
Click on "Serial-ATA" under Hardware on list on left
First entry for me is "Apple HDD ST1000DM003"

Google that ST... and you'll find it's a Seagate not WD Blue that others have seen and which is much slower. With Fusion, it may barely matter in the real world, but it's odd there are two different drives with different specs floating out there. A recent MacWorld article talks about two (non-Fusion) models, one less expensive, but with faster drive inside.

"this Seagate drive is really fast. It took the Seagate-equipped 2.9GHz iMac 96 seconds to copy a 6GB file from one part of the drive to another, while the WD drive in the 3.2GHz iMac took 146 seconds"

i truly am happy that you finally have movement with your order! i'm sure you know just how it feels to see other orders (some with the same configuration as you) ship out before yours. according to the spreadsheet there seems to be a big drop off with my configuration since the 22nd. hopefully this weekend they will knock those all out. in the meantime, i'll just live vicariously through those with tracking numbers and computers on thier desks lol. oh, and i didn't call them looking to get free stuff, they just offered. to be honest i would rather have been given a concrete date or more specific time frame than any of that as i already ordered a superdrive through amazon and paid for 2-3 day shipping. now if they went ahead and paid for the postage and handling to the apo address i have that would be impressive (it's about $100 i'm guessing)...

Ordered a maxed-out 27" machine (except the RAM, which I am upgrading myself to save a few hundreds).

Order placed on: Dec-28th, education store,
Shipped: Jan. 16th.
ETA: Jan. 22nd.

One question: it appears that folks get their iMac a day or two earlier than ETA, so if Fedex delivers on MLK, I would be able to get the new baby on Monday (I am in CA)? Also, would it be able to catch the flight 90--I am just curious when it would be here in the States.


-------------------------------------------
- 1/17/2013 - Thursday 10:00 pm
At local FedEx facility SHANGHAI CN
- 1/16/2013 - Wednesday
5:27 pm
Picked up SHANGHAI CN
Package received after FedEx cutoff
5:27 pm
Left FedEx origin facility
SHANGHAI CN
3:48 am
Shipment information sent to FedEx

Picked up one at the store

I'm new to this thread, but I've been following it, trying to decide when Apple had ramped up enough to order. I noticed some people had luck at the store. I went to the local apple store and they had one 27" I was interested in. I verified the night before there was one left by phone. I had to be at an event 15 minutes after the store opened, so I was there when they opened (in my Tux) and bought the only one they had. I'm so thrilled and it looks great...I've only had a little time to play with it and I'm a new MAC user (Windows before), so I've got a lot to learn. I bought:

3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM-2X4GB (putting in crucial memory for 32GB)
1TB Fusion Drive
NVIDIAGeFrc GTX 680MX 2G GDDR5
APPLE MAGIC Trackpad
Apple Num Kybd(Eng)+User's Gd

Good luck to everyone on your orders. I'll probably be asking a lot of questions on other threads....

My iMac flew in from Alaska and arrived at Newark, NJ at 2:20am. It's 3:45pm right now and there have been no updates. Is it normal for these shipments to sit idle for that long before being sent to the local FedEx? I'm in NY - wish I could just drive and pick it up

I had thought of this too. I used my BarclayCard because they gave me the 0% deal for Apple merch. (it's a Visa).
