However,it appears that it may be here by Thursday looking at http://www.expeditors.com/ as they state the 7th. Might have to speak with work and try to work from home that day too/instead of.

Working at home clearly means I can't play with it on arrival though....just means I can get it in and warm it up ready for "play time"
Expeditors final delivery is to the courier. I think.
as mine now says 'completed" I think its then got to go to UPS or whoever.

Thanks

Nikko

mine landed finally last night at 6pm, made it through customs late pm today and got sent to consignee ( i assume UPS) at 7pm today

I'm expecting it to turn up Wednesday now barring some miracle.


But the merge in transit notice just (literally)went from my shipment status page.
the only other thing I ordered was Applecare, and that (single piece of paper) arrived today in the post.

I wonder if iI dare hope it will arrive tomorrow

Mine is on it's way to Orlando Int'l right now, well actually, now it's AT Orlando Int'l, as the plane landed at 6:13pm, and from there it's only a one hour truck ride to where the trucks go out for delivery here. So I'm pretty sure I'll have mine tomorrow. And FedEx originally gave me a delivery estimate of Wednesday, Feb. 6th...
And, on FedEx vehicle for delivery! So I'll have it tomorrow after I call for a hold after missing delivery while noone is home

Update: My iMac arrived at the local San Francisco Fedex station at 7:11 this morning. I'm not sure if that's early enough to go out for delivery today. Fingers crossed!

Update 2: It's on the truck, out for delivery!!
The long wait is over! Delivered!!

I've cleaned up my folders on my current iMac in preperation for the data migration from Time Machine!

So as expected, I missed my deliver. Went back to the tracking page. Selected hold for pickup, and it's still not available. Called. Automated phone system says it is to big to be held for pickup as the package is to big and they will attempt delivery again tomorrow. Called back and started screaming at the stupid automated phone system for operator for 10 minute before getting a person. They say I can goto location and pick up tomorrow. Sweet! My break at work ends, go back to work. Next break, check my phone.. Missed call from FedEx(no message). I sense a nightmare on its way.

What info do you get from Expeditors?? Every time I try my 82xxxxxxx reference I get "No info available", but the UPS system states it has had an import scan in Cologne on Saturday, with no further updates since. UPS say it will arrive by the end of Wednesday, meanwhile Apple insist it will arrive tomorrow (Tuesday). God knows.

I put the 82xxxx reference into the UPS site and got the tracking number from there. Nothing at all on Expeditors for me. I've currently no idea whether to expect it tomorrow, Wednesday, or neither! It will be nice when I can seeits in the UK at least.

Well, after shooting up to Orlando, swapping out the crap desk for a good one, pretty damn big one too, didn't expect it to feel this big (63"x31"). Got home, got it set up, set up my iMac. BOOM, pure awesomeness. No signs of image retention, can't see any backlight bleed at ALL, and it's even quieter than a mouse. Looks like they got these batches right! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! I'll be ********** around on it for a couple days so you might not hear from me. I'll be in an iMac coma, of love....

SHIPPED!
6 hours ago I received the email from apple with tracking number and the estimated delivery: first it was 11th feb, now 12th; 12th feb is also the UPS date. I hope that this is the last delay, 8 days from China to Italy are enough. Order placed 17th jan.
This is the hard part of the waiting, i guess: you know that it's yours, that it does exist... but you can't have it!

Are you on the spreadsheet? If so Please update it to prepared for shipment, if you are not on the spreadsheet, put yourself on it. It is in the Mac Thread just look for Spreadsheet and you will find it. Enter your info and keep it updated please.

Congratulations! Have they charged your card/payment method yet? You'll most likely see it update to "Shipped" sometime tomorrow morning. The good thing about when your order updates to Preparing For Shipment at night, and then updated to Shipped in the morning, is that you are guaranteed to make the FedEx cutoff time, so your iMac wont have to wait till the next day to go out on the plane like mine did. Which shipped method did you choose? I only chose Standard shipping, it shipped last Thursday, and I received it this morning. Which is pretty dang good for standard shipping, and if you went with Express Shipping, you'll have it even quicker. Hope you enjoy!

----------

Oh, and I just wanted to upload a little something. I ran a speed test on Speedtest.net, and here are my results with this iMac. I have Roadrunner Lightning by Brighthouse Networks. If you are in the Central Florida area then you are familiar with it. It provides you with 40 Mbps DL and 5 Mbps UL speeds. Pretty dang nice, soon I'm going to upgrade to the 60 Mbps speed... You can never have too much speed...

I wont know anything about the Card, its on my mothers. Our house at college was broken into on christmas and my fully loaded 27 inch imac was stolen. Insurance will handle this one. i did the standard shipping figuring as i would be waiting a lifetime already. im more than anxious to get it, already have 2 superdrives, thunderbolt hard drive, and 32gb of ram to greet the beast when it arrives.

Got home from work and set mine up. Got to say it's awesome, especially since I'm coming from a 2007 iMac. Only 2 hours left of transferring around 250 GB of my iTunes library.

@Wizardhunt, no change in your order yet? That is weird. You ordered it through apple didn't you? Or was it via a reseller?

Yes I ordered through Apple online. It's been 21 days in just a few hours, and still no change from Processing Items. . . All I can do is wait. It does say 3-4 weeks and tomorrow is the 3rd week.

Are they going to use the delays as an excuse not to update soon? Otherwise they'd be due for a small processor bump about now.

I was just about to go to bed and call it a night, and decided ok, one more check to see if it is still stuck on Processing Items. . .

And it Moved to Prepared for Shipment . . . at appx 11:30 pm so with some luck it may ship out early or earlier than 48 hours. But Finally it moved. It won't be long now.

Glad you got it!!

Mines out for delivery today. Sod's law says it will turn up while I'm on the school run later.

Got fibre optic cable here so 125 down and 10 up... And to think I used to think dial-up was great ?!
