Really hate this wait it feels like forever even tho its only been 2 weeks and 4 days. Ordered through the university HE student discount. So get 3 years Apple care for free from the posts I've seen tho I may need it. There seems to be a few people mentioning problems

AppleCare is a no brainer anyway. It's free (-telephone support) or ) 45 with tel. Support. Even full price ( I think 165) it's great value. It's the only extended warranty I ever buy and usually change my iMac when it runs out after 3 years. It's worth it for 3 years peace of mind.

Mines still processing despite Apple taking the money yesterday. Will call them later

Mine as you can see here is incoming in Florence,
now it stucks still in Milano after a very long travel between
Germany and Italy,,,i didn't realize Italy was so far from Europe..
actually it takes more to come from Germany to Milano than
to travel out from China to France...its..weird..,why not
to ship them
( because i'm not the only one...in one another forum we are
commenting this and also the unrespectful treatment Ups gave me about asking which was next destination ..having back just that they cannot say to me anything...,quite arrogantly IMO without any Ups kind of useful specific data .
I guess it was for some kind of security and not in the name of my...privacy.
I have to say that it was easy to follow all the steps between Shanghai and Charles de Gaulle finding the flight using the names of the airports arrival and departures and their timing..and it was a nice experience..ruined in Europe.


from France to Milano-Rome-Pisa-Bologna by flight?...

Ok.this is my "story"

Especially when you have paid over 2000 for a computer the peace of mind is valuable. If they have taken your money then I think it will probably be shipping soon. I haven't seen any movement on my order since I placed it do they work over the weekends? By that I mean if my order doesn't change to "preparing" today could it do so Tomorrow (Saturday)?

Order on 7 January 2013

3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz

16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X8GB

3TB Fusion Drive

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5

Apple Magic Mouse + Magic Trackpad

Apple Wireless Keyboard (British) & User's Guide (English)

Apple Battery Charger

Accessory Kit

I hope so. I'll check the spreadsheet in a bit to see what's happened on previous weekends.
Honestly I'm losing the will to live. If only Apple would communicate with us. Even if they couldn't change a delivery date ( or non date) just some communication would be good

It's clear as day that this is not FCFS. It's that that's pissing me off.

It's making my blood boil that they are sending BTO models to stores before fulfilling their existing orders. I'm considering camping outside a store all night to get one

Yet again being a loyal Apple customer and buying early comes back to kick you in the teeth

Yeah I know so far nothing else has changed, haven't taken my money yet, but now I'm checking order status every five damn minutes.

Well that just went and got me excited as I had ordered on the 6th, but upon checking (for the bazillionth time this week), my 'Cancel' button is still just as bright and shiny as ever.
The entire order processing is very chaotic, hopefully you see some change soon!

Honestly I think we would have been better trying our luck in the stores.

Called Apple. They don't know anything. What a surprise !

Just a heads up.. I think there might be even more of a delay on the 3.4gHz i7 3tb fusion 680 Mx combo.. On the spreadsheet that seems to Be the one that's taking the longest.. And I'm still waiting from ordering on 27th December..

I think you are right. I wonder which specific component it is?

If I had to guess I would say it was the 3Tb fusion

Most likely yeah. However I ordered it with all the most popular components which included 8gb ram so that's probably why mine is taking years to be sorted out..

The Law of Sod :-p

I've decided to try to forget about it until Monday. Though it won't be easy staring at a dead 2009 iMac and having no other computer available. iPad died a couple of weeks ago too

Thank god for iPhones ( even if the buttons are dodgy!)

Maybe I need to go cold turkey from Apple products!!

Even worse for me! I ordered one on the 2nd December which came on the 26th with the wrong spec! My ipad is now my main computer..

The wrong spec? I'd scream after waiting that long :-P

My main computer is now an iPhone 5 :-)Which accounts for all my typos! Not much good for work though!

mine shipped over night...

Fedex says Wednesday delivery. Interestingly MacMall now says they have my model in stock. I guess once the gates are open, they are open. Glad the waiting is over.

arggghhh

Still stuck in processing for nearly 3 weeks.

I'm really wondering if my choice of the 3TB Fusion and/or the 675MX are moving me to the back of the queue. Also, I haven't seen a lot of activity for US shipments on the spreadsheet.

Ordered January 20th, 27inch, 3.4, 680mx and 1TB fusion drive. Delivery between February 15-25.

BUT, called the Apple store today and they had the exact same options in stock. Cancelled my order and picked one up a month early!

Went down there and he must have misheard me, they had the base 27", but not with the Fusion upgrade. So disappointed. Went from pure bliss to dejected. Back to the wait...
