Has yours shipped yet? Remind me again when you bought your iMac and the full configuration specs?

since yours is Base model with 1TB Fusion it will probably ship faster or before mine since mine is Maxed out version 3.4 Ghz GTX 680MX, 3TB no fusion. I am thinking now the no fusion is the hold up, They probably have thousands standing by with the fusion drive in it, but not many with just a 3 TB hd no fusion. . . so I am willing to bet that yours ordered on the 16th or 17th will ship before mine ordered on 15th. Good for you , Not so good for me .

Looking at the spreadsheet it appears Apple has forgotten about the orders placed on Jan 15th. See at this cut out from the spreadsheet.

Thats why it went to shipping so fast, it was a 21.5 model and not the 27 in model.

Talking It Finally Moves to Prepared for Shipment!!!

Finally!!! it Moved from Processing Items to Prepared for Shipment at 11:30 pm just before I was about to call it a night. Maybe with some luck it will ship out tomorrow or on Wednesday at latest. Anyway I am relieved a little bit now. It will not be long now. I ordered Express shipping lets see if they use that speed and will they actually charge me the $30 since I heard rumors that they were providing all shipments as express. Not sure if that is true. But I am about to find out.

Why shipping a 21.5 should be faster than the 27, once the machine is assembled what could make any difference?

The 27" is taking longer because of the new way to assemble the screen to the glass. It's easier on the smaller 21.5".
After it is assembled, than there should be no difference in delivery time.

That is probably very True.

I just got the noticed this morning.


What are the chances it arrives here by the end of the week? Thought the estimated shipment is February 12-19.

Well the chances are confirmed for me , anyways, I will be getting it delivered on Feb 8, this Friday. and it missed the cutoff for Fedex to go out today it said on tracking otherwise it could have got here on Thursday. So the express shipping i paid did pay off.

It Shipped!!!! My Baby is coming to me soon. Can't Wait.

Seems to me like the most dubious part of the Apple order process, with no consistent or predictable duration. Perhaps because the Shipped stage is so precise and shows measurable progress or because I've mostly purchased refurbs.

Ok my order has shipped as many of you know, but I have a question. It was picked up at 5:18 pm and under that in grey lettering, it states Package received after FedEx cutoff.

But at the same time it says towards the top : " In Transit " And underneath that it says : Shipment Exception. What does Shipment Exception mean? Is this going to be a problem? Which may affect the Scheduled arrival time of Friday Feb 8, before 10:30 am?

It looks like it won't ship out until tomorrow.

If I knew it was going to take this long I would've paid for it to ship it faster.

I just called Fed Ex International at 1-800-247-4747 and they told me the shipment exception means it missed the plane due to the Fed-Ex Cut off time. The package will not make the plane due it was not checked in early enough. What that means is back luck for me. Now instead of it coming Friday morning, it will be deferred to Monday at 10:30. So basically 3 more days later than it should have been. So I paid $30.00 for nothing. I may call Apple tomorrow to see if I can get the $30.00 removed from my charge. Bummer Friday was only 2 1/2 days from now. Now it will be sent Monday or 6 more days. Tell me that I am not bummed.

UPDATE: Wednesday Feb 6, 2013 my iMac has International Shipment Release-Export and the delivery date still has not changed, it is still saying Feb 8 Friday at 10:30 am so I don't know what is going on.

I just got a text message from my App in my iPhone that my iMac has landed in Memphis,TN. just now at 9:30 pm Wednesday Feb 6th. That is plenty of time to get to my city of Las Vegas, on Friday. It appears it will arrive on Friday after all. That is so cool. It did not even go to Alaska, that I see in the tracking. It went from Shanghai, China straight to Memphis, TN. I thought it might to a west coast hug like Ontario, Ca but nope. So it will clear customs in Memphis I guess.

That means it shipped on the 5th, (actually the 6th of Feb since it missed the plane on the 5th) and will get here on the 8th, that is like 2 actually shipping days but 3 days total. That's Express Shipping at its Best!!!
