On the positive side, as I can't currently work due to lack of said iMac - my house is very clean. Which is good. As I won't be doing any when hell freezes over. Oops. Sorry. When the thing turns up.

What really pisses me off is that Apple have my money. So even if I do find one in the store. I couldn't just go and buy one without raiding my savings account.
Going by your sig, I haven't heard of any stores in my area (philadelphia, pa USA) that has a 675MX so finding one in the store is a long shot. I've thought about biting the bullet and getting a high end 1TB 680 i7 model, but I really want the 3TB Fusion, which isn't available in my stores.

Maybe I'll give them a call later and perhaps they'll throw me a freebie.

I'd happily take any 27" i7 fusion drive I could get my hands on now. Don't care about GPU or HDD size just as long as its fusion.

I'm turning down work. Because I have nothing to work on. Tbh. I should have bought a 21" to keep me going until the 27" arrived. But it's a bit late for that now.

So psyched. Now instead of refreshing the Apple page I get to start refreshing the FedEx page!

Credit card finally charged

After a very long weekend of watching orders placed after mine start shipping, my cc was finally charged this morning. My order is still processing, but I'm guessing that should change soon.

What does the picture of the brown box indicate? Mine showed the brown box for a little while, but now it's back to the iMac and in the Processing phase. Just trying to figure out how many days I might still have before it's actually dispatched to FedEx.

Nobody really knows. Some have said it means the order should be preparing soon™ and that since it disappears after a while may be in the process of syncing together but no clues.

Received notice of 27" shipment!

Ordered on January 7th:
27” iMac, 3.4 GHz, i7
8 GB Memory / to be upgraded to 32 GB
HD 065-COQ4 1 TB Fusion
NVIDIAGeFrc GTX 675MX 1 G GDDRS
Trackpad / Alpha/Numeric Keyboard
Applecare and SuperDrive

Received an email at 2 a.m. CST/US confirming Fed Ex had picked up my computer in Shanghai; expected delivery is Friday, Feb 1! I feel like I've waited for this machine for more than 2 yrs after backing away from the then former "new" 27" iMac after so many problems were being reported. Sure as hell hope I didn't jump the gun this time after reading some of the posts in this forum. I just want a great computer that performs without disappointment. I'll be back to let everyone know how it goes.

.. and into the homestretch, my order shipped overnight (placed 7th jan, Apple Store online, going to Australia)

With a delivery estimate of 'by 31/1/2013'. The shipping notice indicated express shipping, I only selected standard shipping on my order. Some people had been told by apple reps they are sending them all out express, free of charge to make up for delays, looks like its true.

I feel left behind... I ordered on January 2nd and still processing. I am wondering if maybe since it was "ships in January", I'm being put off until the last day of the month so they can get the 3-4 week people out.

I don't know if that makes much sense, because it changed from January to 3-4 weeks shortly before I placed my order. Therefor the closest deadline for the 3-4 week orders is February 7th to the 14th. So your deadline is still priority over the 3-4 week peoples'.

The latest release notes for the developer seed (beta) of 10.8.3 indicates bootcamp support is coming for 3TB drives:

• Boot Camp support for Macs with a 3TB hard drive

Arrow 27" iMac : Order

Here are the details of my order from Apple.com:

Date of order: Jan 17
Available to ship: 3 - 4 weeks
Delivers: Feb 14 - Feb 22 by Standard Shipping

27-inch iMac (Z0MS) with the following configuration:
3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB (32GB hand-install)
1TB Fusion Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5
Magic Trackpad
Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (English) & User's Guide
Accessory Kit
I have also ordered:
2 x Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (Arrived!)
Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Contagion Mouse (Arrived!)
Apple Wireless Keyboard - Japanese (Arrived!)
Can't wait for the concept to become an object!

So people are saying these iMacs are shipping ~ a week early? That's good news. I've waited so long for a new iMac already! I intend to put it to work immediately for software coding and casual gaming - university is back in session so I don't have much free time.

How long once they have my money?

Ok, so according to my credit card company, Apple took my money first thing this morning (California time), but there has been no change to my order status. As I ordered way back on the 6th I'm confident that this isn't a phantom charge to test the card. My question for those of you who have been eagle-eyeing your bank/cc accounts for signs of action is: How long has it typically taken for your order status to change from 'processing' once Apple has taken your money?

Thanks!
