At least you guys didnít order from macmall. Macmall sent me a letter saying they hope they get them from Apple by the 15th of Jan. Even if they get them by Jan 15th who knows how long it will take them to ship them.

I guess they simply don't believe in the get in line and serve in order concept in China. More like a New York Deli.

The only thing that stops me cancelling and building a PC is that my ram from OWC has already shipped and it would be a waste of $200 if i cancelled the imac. I need the damn computer now and each day sucks on this old laggy POS

well i need a computer right now so because of the ram i am just going to wait it out. I could return it yes but I am done with the hassles i just want it simple. It says Jan shipping so two weeks is manageable. It is not going to be the machine to make me money, just the one to practise one (the ones at work make me money) so it is more of an impatient (since march) want than a need.

I didn't have the money until roughly right after christmas to purchase this 27inch beauty, so I placed my order on the 29th before looking into how many others are still waiting for theirs to be processed and shipped, and now I'm sitting here still computer-less, with my order still processing, and all the money is still sitting in my account burning a hole in my pocket.

major first world problems here.

I guess my sarcasm didn't translate well via text, my apologies.

Just fyi... first world problems = problems from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at.

And trust me, I do what I can to help those who are actually in need in this world we live in

HEHE, yep. When I ordered the iPad Mini they missed several shipping commitments, so I was legitimately griping. The iMac I ordered says "Ships January" ... so in theory it could be the second week of february before I get it.

I ordered a Samsung External DVD drive (to keep in the closet for when I need it) for $20, and I ordered the Crucial memory upgrade to up it to 16GB for $65 so I'll be all ready when it finally comes.

That gets them out of saying "Ships: February" which psychologically seems further haha
