Even if it changes to Preparing for Shipment tomorrow, how long does it take for it to change to Shipped.

It usually change pretty quick sometimes less than 24 hrs but usually 24-36 hours.

well it depends on how far it has to travel to get to you determines when you will get it. For some lucky ones it only takes 2-3 business days others can take up to 7-10 days after it ships.

I am seeing that some iMacs are being ordered on the 12th of Jan but has a estimated delivery time frame of Feb 11-19. That is the same as mine. However I ordered on the 15th. The ones ordered now on the 12th are moving to preparing for shipment. . . I hope mine is any day now but most likely Saturday is my guess.

I hope people can keep on updating the spreadsheet. Sometimes it seems like the "holes" in a series of shipped orders might be lack of updating the sheet.

Kinda difficult to do now since somebody decided to delete the username column. No clue which row is "mine" anymore.

I saw that also... Luckily, I was able to look at my order date and location to decide which order was mine.

Besides getting it earlier, I really want it during my one week vacation which starts Super Bowl Sunday.

Wow that is a quick change from preparing to Shipped. Surely Feb 6th would be more accurate.

it usually only stays as preparing for a day or so, it changed to preparing last night at 11 and then an hour or so ago to shipped. I think thats typical.

be interested to see what other peoples delivery estimate is i think a week + is very long compared to others.

Looks like we may be on the same plane, although my delivery is scheduled for the 6th. An extra 2 days to send it up to Liverpool by truck? I'm up in Speke on the 7th, i'll bring it up for you and save you a day! haha

ha, thanks :-)
I'm in Chester, and I'll come to Speke to collect it, I'll even go to London to get it.

Be interested to see what date Mike gets as he is in Liverpool.

don't understand why its taking so long, but i will be asking Apple that very question tomorrow!

no flight allocated yet according to expeditors.com.waiting for flight from shanghai to London. I think there is one at 11pm tonight.

My iMac was ordered on the 11th, and I received shipping status that it left China yesterday at 10:00 (China time). It's been almost 24 hours without a status update from Fedex. I'm sure it's either on the plane, or a slow boat...heading for its final destination in San Francisco. I have an estimated delivery date of February 5th!

Not long until the orders from the 16th goes through. Waited 15 days, ergo the average being 15-18 days, mine should ship by Sunday.
But then again, one never know.

No express shipping for me

It looks as if reports of express shipping for all 27" iMacs is incorrect. The attached image of my tracking info at FedEx says 'International Economy'. That would appear to be corroborated by the actual tracking info. After being picked up early yesterday morning, it sat in Shanghai for over 24 hours before actually leaving earlier today. It went though Japan today, and if it made the connecting flight, it should have just landed in Anchorage. I'm crossing my fingers that it makes the flight to Memphis tonight, and then makes the journey back to Los Angeles.

All in all though I'm not worried or upset at the wait. When I ordered the machine Apple said it would be delivered between Feb 4-11. FedEx says I'll have it on the 4th. Apple has kept every promise they made to me regarding delivery.
