My order hasn't changed

It still shows:

Ships: 3 - 4 Weeks
Delivers 28/12/2012 - 08/01/2013 via Standard Shipping

It'd be nice if it were still in December, but, oh well, I'll just have another beer.

Unfortunately not. Apple Stores work on a first come first serve basis. - with the exception of online orders for 'pick up in store'. Which doesn't really solve your problem

Ordered my 27" BTO the day after the launch (Sat 1st) and still hoping for delivery before Christmas but not banking on it.

Either way you're still better off placing your order ASAP and then just waiting.

If anything the holiday are likely part of the problem. If the 21.5" iMacs were "ready to ship in quantity" the week of Thanksgiving in US Apple would have run into a lack of shipping slots due to everyone else stocking up for "Black Friday" weekend sales. Same issue with Christmas for the week of 17-24th in advance of Xmas. Extra shipping slots are likely very tight.

I would guess that either 1/4 (first Friday after) or 8th (first Tuesday after) for there to be a large empty shipping slots to fly. (**)

The dock workers strike in LA-Long Beach probably isn't helping either.


** P.S. the allocation for initial orders probably have disappeared by now.

Come to think of it, the 27" is probably going to be lot harder to service, too. The videos out there showing how to "de-laminate" the screen/glass combo are all on a 24" model, which looks hard enough. It's going to be really hard to wrangle a 27" one. I'm always just a little worried about not being able to easily replace the hard drive in an iMac, and this new design isn't helping.

Ordered mine and can't wait to get here.

Well I ordered mine on Wednesday

3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X8GB
3TB Fusion Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5
Magic Trackpad as I have a razor naga elite wireless mouse

They stated because I customized mine so much from the standard that was why the shipping estimate was set for Jan 4-10th.

Shoot I can't wait and want it now. The last mac i bought was my macbook about 5 years ago. So, this is a HUGE upgrade woohoo.

I've been considering a 2012 iMac since Barclays is running a new promo for cardholders offering 18 months Same As Cash for purchases over $2000, but the $2000+ transaction has to post by January 17th and with these shipping delays and Apple generally not charging until the product ships, I'm worried it wouldn't post until after that date. Plus I really don't need to replace my 2011 iMac.



So I went to the Apple Store and bought a 4th Gen iPad (since that is 12 months SAC).

Cant give you stats but Id say in a typical year they would ship more macs around the holiday season than any other month.

Very happy with the product. I think its the best iMac since those white LCD iMacs, absolutely loved those ones.

More Macs doesn't mean more top end iMacs. The more sensitive holiday season iMac to get out the door is the 21.5" model.... which is out.

The major driver on increased holidays season quarter Mac sales is laptops. Their year-over-year increase tends to be higher. A higher fraction 27" iMac buys are made by businesses. They don't buy on Santa Claus cycles. (there is some 'year end tax write off but really for Holiday' sales but in larger scope of the whole year not a dominating factor. As a tax deduction it would be as useful in 2013 as 2012 ( if not more so if taxes go up).

I saw it in a store today. Damn that thing was beautiful. And thin. And not even close to hot, compared to the old generation standing next to it, witch was almost on fire.

can't wait for the 27"!

They don't "de-laminate" the panel. The whole panel ( glass+lcd electronics ) is one piece. That now single component is double sided taped to the case.

They likely use double sided tape on the 27" model also.

The old models with the glass separate from the electronics had their own complexity issues.

I've never had an iMac but that thing looks sexy. I've been thinking of getting a Mac so I can start using Final Cut Pro for video editing. This might be the time...

I tried that. Long story short, there was a problem, and I spent 5 days dealing with a guy in India who didn't understand my problem before I told them to cram it up their a$$ and bought it with my regular card. Unfortunately, there's probably a lot of people who really need to finance it, and for them I have sympathy.

Of course!. Why didn't I think of that. An American Union strike is delaying deliveries in Australia.

You know where Australia is? It is over there near Japan :-)
