This usually wouldn't be much of a worry, but since we are waiting up to a month to get the iMac, it could shorten my coverage by a month.
It will start when your Mac is shipped, it basically extends the standard warranty to 3 years. So your Applecare will end 3 years from the day it is shipped from Apple's manufacturing facility.

You and I are in the same boat! Ordered February 7th, delivery due March 13- 26th. There appears to be no logic in the way that Apple are currently handling the shipments though unfortunately... :/

Just added mine as well....

Ordered on February 14th (well, actually december 31st but financing was a b*tch). Estimated shipping 20/3 - 4/4, which looks quite a lot more than some people here. But hey, been waiting for one month and a half, so what's 6 weeksn more right?

I ordered the 3.2 i5, 8GB, 680MX and 1TB FD.

Ordered Feb 6th.

FYI, My card was charged today! YES!!!

However, I had to call and get it straightened out because my debit card, evidently, has a daily limit that was below the amount of the computer. While I was talking to them, I asked about the Apple Care. They told me the 3 years starts from the date of purchase (Feb 6th) not date of shipment.

They gave me the direct number for Apple Care so I will call them and make sure once they open.

When you find out let us know if it shipped from California or China. It seems a fair amount of iMacs are now being shipped from CA.

So wouldn't it be better to get Apple care a month before the 1 year limited warranty ends?

It doesn't matter when you purchase Apple Care, as long as you purchase it with in a year of your date of purchase. Basically you have 1 yr to buy the Apple Care to extend the warranty for 2 more years.

Ah OK but say the iMac was order today 1/22/13 it means my warranty would end 1/22/16. Say I order apple care 1/20/14 and activated it then I would be OK u til 1/20/17 right?

Good news. I just spoke to Apple Care. The Apple Care rep said that they have to tie a serial number to the Apple Care, and they have no way of doing that until the iMac is ready to ship.

Apple Care's time period will only start once the computer ships and they attach it's unique serial number to Apple Care.

No, that is not correct, if you ordered applecare on the 20th January 2014, your Applecare would expire on 20th January 2016 if your imac shipped on 20th January 2013. The Applecare is not a new warranty, it is a warranty extension of 2 years on top of the standard warranty.

In other words, it doesn't matter when you buy it, it will still expire on the same date.

Your applecare will not start until the machine ships, I speak from experience with having Apple care on my Air - it started on the day it was shipped which was some 7 days after ordering.

One additional piece of information; I was told that they charge your card when your iMac is ready to go into the factory for production. Once your card clears, the factory is authorized to start building your machine.

Delivering to London , England.

How long does it usually take to deliver after your status changes to preparing for shipment?
Hope you didn't purchase the 32gb of Ram through apple man? You would have saved yourself by sticking with the standard 8gb and then purchasing the additional through Crucial.

Pretty Excited

Ordered Feb. 5

3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
8GB RAM
3TB Serial ATA
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1GB

Have been checking daily (sometimes 2 or 3 times), and thanks to this thread, I finally checked my credit card. Posted yesterday!

But still has not updated on the website. So hopefully I'll be up and running by EOW next week. And be too busy to hang with my visiting in-laws.

Is anyone seeing an actual delivery day (delivered by Monday,etc) once they have a tracking number? Typically Fedex and UPS are accurate with this.

Is it earlier than the Apple Guesstimate in your original status?

The reason I'm asking are reports that shipping times are supposed to
improve in February. It's end of Feb is it not?

Well... coming late to the party, because I have been saving to buy my first iMac. Ordered my iMac a few hours ago. It's currently listed with a 22/03/2013 - 03/04/2013 delivery date. I have been waiting for a year to make this order, so a bit more time won't be too agonizing... may be
