BTO iMac preparing for shipment!

Check your orders folks. I ordered a BTO fully loaded 21.5" iMac on Friday and it switched to "Preparing for shipment" just today. Hopefully it will ship tomorrow. Yipee!

That's great but is hardly news. The 21.5" was available for immediate shipping.

BTO (Built to Order). Those had a 7-10 day wait time.

Damn, what time did you order?

I ordered (Maxed out 21.5") at about 9:35AM GMT, mine still says "Processing Items Dispatched: 7- 10 business days Delivers 13 Dec, 2012 - 18 Dec, 2012".

What time did they go live in the UK?

Perhaps it's processing because I got it on the Higher Education discount. Or maybe it's because I chose the wired mouse and wired keyboard.

Also...this has possibly been the longest 2 days of my entire life! Seriously! I feel like it's been 2 weeks since I sat there clicking the highest spec thing I've ever ordered! (I've always played around clicking the most expensive options, never thought I'd actually order one one day)

I ordered my 21.5" iMac on Friday at around 10:00am in the UK. Like Siderz I also was eligible for the higher education discount. Ordered both the Magic Trackpad and the Magic Mouse too.

My order still says Dispatched: 7-10 business days. Hoping it will change tomorrow since it'll be Monday.

Needless to say, cannot wait for my new computer! Been hanging on with a 2006 base model MacBook for the past months!

Wish everyone a speedy and hassle-free delivery!

Hopefully by them Preparing to Ship today, they will actually ship tomorrow evening. I was if ours were assembled in the US (rumor currently going around and from the teardown clip), thats why they are moving so quick? Then again, maybe Apple was proactive and made various configurations of the 21.5" ahead of the launch.........hence....I said MAYBE

Should have said 21.5" in the title. I was about to be REALLY excited thinking the 27" was shipping early

I ordered a 21.5 with Fusion Drive at about 10:30am EST on 11/30.

It still says Processing with an expected delivery date of Dec 17-20th.

My birthday is the 12th so it will be nice a birthday gift to me if it came a bit sooner!

I'm assuming we were just too late then to get the slight earlier delivery

Or otherwise, it's because we're not getting the default mouse options. (I'm getting a wired mouse and wired keyboard)

Or otherwise (Maybe the most likely) its because they need to process our HE discount.

...I pretty much just repeated what I said in my original post, lol.

Mine says preparing for shipment as well. BTO 21.5". Order originally placed at 2:30am or so on 11/30. Updated order on same day about 8:00pm which technically was a new order with more BTO options.

Ha!
Interesting thing though, I just went to check the status of my 27" BTO and they have added a line above the delivery dates that says "Available to ship: 2-3 weeks"

I didnt see that there before.

Since early Sunday morning like 2am here in u.s. mine changed to prep to ship. I got a 21.5 2.9 ghz with fusion 16 gb, magic trackpad and wired keyboard (already have wireless keyboard and mouse) I am getting student discount and ordered it at 1:57am Friday morning as soon as it went live in case this info helps anyone with there own expectations

Anytime before the 17th would be amazing in my opinion. Maybe after such a long wait in November they are paying us back with a shortened wait in dec
