I think you are in for a sad awakening!

I had to save up too and that part was bad enough, but the wait after was even worse! I think because I had finally accomplished my goal and was ready to go, but now I have to wait even longer. My card has finally been charged (as of this morning), so I am hoping to have it next week sometime. (Ordered February 6th)

Well I'm learning the hard way that there is a big difference between "Authorizing" and "Charging" you credit card. If they are authorizing the charge it may be days before they even begin preparing. Once they charge your card the machine should be shipping. My card was authorized (temporary charge) 4 days ago and I haven't had any progress on the preparation.

I take solace in the fact that, in the meantime:

* I continue to love my rMBP;
* can buy a few bits of kit that I have selected for my iMac; and
* can start saving for other, albeit more boring, household expenditure.

But I am realist enough to know I am going to drive my family nuts during the wait.

An authorization for my iMac was put on my card on 2/19/13, and just "prepared" & "shipped" today. So you should be next, we ordered same day.

Shipped

Mine shipped last night but I expected it fron china. Mine started in California. Should be a shorter trip to TN. How many of you guys have assembled in US as apparently mine is?

I thought all shipping was upgraded per other posts but mine says it will be delivered the 28th.

Thoughts?

Fedex says mine was shipped from Fremont, CA. Now before the tracking number was active, the delivery time shown on the email from Apple said it would be delivered on the 28th (first day of my expected delivery window). I checked the tracking number this morning and it has an estimated delivery of Tuesday the 26th.

I'll let you guys know if it happens to be one assembled in USA.

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.
Apparently there IS a big difference between authorizing and posting a charge. I've been authorized on the purchase since the 20th, but nothing has changed yet.

So my Delivery estimate got pushed back another week which was pretty frustrating when this was happening on here...

So I called to find out what's been going on, I have the same exact configuration sans the Fusion Drive. 2 People just told me they had no clue why mine was taking this long when others were getting theirs that quick. "It takes 3-4 weeks to build and deliver sir", over and over again no matter how many times I asked the question. So I called back a second time, and the young woman who was on the other end (Terry), was extremely helpful. She gave me a detailed answer as to why it was taking longer for mine to be processed and shipped. After that as I was about to end the conversation, she mentioned that she bumped my shipping up to two day shipping and threw in a free track pad for the inconvenience.

Right after the call it is now preparing for shipment! That was unexpected, pretty glad it's going to be delivered this upcoming week!

Long time listener, first time caller.

Ordered my 27" 3.4 GHz, 1TB Fusion, 680MX on February 11 through an Australian reseller. No estimated delivery date as the email was sent to the reseller not to me, but order status is showing 3-4 weeks (likely delivery middle of March).

Chinese New Year is probably not doing iMac purchasers any favours!

FINALLY preparing. I know my first ETA date isn't here yet, but it took 4 days after they authorized my cc and I was starting to worry. WooHoo. Now I get to see if it was assembled in California and more importantly if I get a flawless machine. Keepin' my fingers crossed.

I had to cancel my original February order, and then re-ordered again a week ago on a 3Tb Fusion, but I had a nagging feeling I should have went all SSD, so third time lucky for me !

I have to check my card now. I ordered on the 8th. Man chomping at the bit to get that baby. Checked card and it says "Pending" as of 2/22/13. It's getting interesting.
