Woo! It's been delivered!

I've got a 7 hours shift now though so will have to wait to get home before I can open the beast!

Going to be the longest 7 hours ever!

I may have missed it, but which UPS did you choose ?

Congrats on the new computer. It really surprised me how fast it is.

Thanks! Typing on it now! Yes, it's extremely fast! I love it!

I have the CyberPower PFC 1350VA. It's the only one I could find available in the UK. I definitely did not need the 1350VA, but it was my only choice.

Mine is out for delivery today!

I'm at the office waiting for the TNT ban to come. This will be a long day...

Update: The TNT guy called and it's coming...

Update: OMG It's here!!!! I have three packages (iMac, SuperDrive and AppleCare) just wainting for my lunch time to go home and unbox it.

OH MY GOD IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I think I'm going to name my first child iMac.

UPS delivered it pretty sharpish, took just over 48 hours to get from Cork to my house in Milton Keynes. And also says "Assembled in Ireland" on the foot, which I thought was a nice touch.

Glad that we both finally have our iMacs! I agree, it's beautiful!

Mine was also assembled in Ireland and after it's first departure took just over 48 hours to get down to the South Coast from Cork.

They've been making certain BTO orders in Ireland for many years. If yours is coming straight from Ireland, then yes, it will have been made there

Question

Is there anyone who is still waiting for his iMac that is ordered on 22th January? Today a local dealer said to me I have to wait for two weeks more... I can't believe Apple needs two months to make iMac!!!!???

Apple are prioritising orders ordered through the Apple Store over resellers and while this may not be good news for you, I believe it is the correct thing to do.

Sadly enough this isn't the only prioritising. My 30 Jan order hasn't moved at all and is still sitting on "processing" nearly 1.5 months later. In the meantime I see people that ordered mid-Feb get theirs delivered.

Wow, really?

When is your estimated delivery date? Have you spoke to Apple?

Ordered online directly from Apple. I'm from Belgium.

I've had Apple Customer Support on the phone twice, and both times the answer was "we're shipping as fastbas we can".

The earliest date was yesterday, the latest is Mar 21. But that still doesn't explain why others in EU that placed an order weeks later, are getting theirs.

****, mine doesn't even have fusion or anything. Other than the 680mx, it's stock.

That's enough to be BTO and to wait longer for iMac. I'm from Serbia and, as I said a few posts before, I have ordered mine on January 22. and my local dealer sad yesterday I'll have to wait for (at least) two weeks more.

Mine is also BTO... I ordered 1TB Fusion Drive.

Great... In UK you have BTO iMacs in stock and I have to wait for mine over two months... Of course... It is UK and this is (for many of you) barely known Serbia... Plus, mine BTO iMac with Fusion Drive costs in USA about $2250 and here in Serbia I had to paid for it almost $2900. What injustice...

Wow that's insane. I would call apple and complain. Least they could do is give you something free or a coupon maybe for being so patient.
