The U.S. education store that I was checking never went down (at least not for more than one minute.) Ordered a maxed out 27" except for memory, which I'll buy separately. Given supply constraints, I wonder how long it'll take the shipping estimate to go higher than the 2-3 weeks quoted or if that estimate is even going to be accurate.

Looks like I've missed my window to order before work.
I had an online chat on the UK apple store yesterday and was told that they would definitely be going on sale today. Didn't know what time though.

My debit card keeps getting declined when I have enough funds to purchase the iMac.

So I guess anyone outside the US can forget about a 27" this year . . .

Some debit cards have lower daily spending limits ($1000). You might have to call your bank to get it raised temporarily to make a big purchase.

2-3 weeks (Dec 24-31)
I went with the same except no Apple Care. I will add later. I also got 1 to 1 care so they can fix my ghost iCloud account problem. I have a new iPhone 5, a new iPad 3 and now a new iMac. They can fix it so I don't have 24 calendars, songs that delete their purchase history, so it only plays the 1:05 sample, duplicate emails, etc. I'm sick of being on the phone with people who can't figure it out. $99 is not too much to spend to get it fixed right.

There is an option to divide it amongst 2 debit cards in the payment section, too.

Done and done here in Canada also.... Ordered 27" base model, 2-3 weeks shipping date (estimated 19-27 December) was stated during checkout.

I would say that it all went very smoothly for me, but i'll never say that until I am actually setting the new iMac up on my desk in a few weeks time -now time for Stage 2 -the "hope I placed my order correctly/hope there are no problems with my order" feeling.

I am in Belgium, and like folks in Germany and the UK we haven't got the possibility as yet. AS far as I can tell no European sites are up. i would call apple but last time, three years ago with the last imac big update, they messed up my order sending it to the neigbour, US keyboard (rather than UK) and it took 5 weeks..

No, it did not go down and the ordering was available at about 23:57, but might have been earlier (if I were mad enough to check every 30 seconds). Checking every 10 minutes was desperate enough.
