I'm a previous customer, in fact, I ordered an iPad3 just at the end of October. Countless other things too. No idea why some people that ordered later are getting them earlier. They can't possibly just be rolling off the line, They had to have a build up of these sitting in the warehouse. Even if supplies were limited.

it should take <5 days between shipping from shanghai to delivered in usa. That means we could potentially have in hand reviews and tear down by this weekend for the 27"! Exciting times indeed.

For those of you lucky enough to have it shipped already, please include the TIME you placed your order. I placed mine on the day it was released (11/10 around 10am est) but it's still in processing status

how does apple process orders

so it seems apple does not process the orders in the same order as they are received. My friend and I each ordered the 27 inch iMac but i ordered mine a couple hours ahead of my friend. Mine is still showing as processing while my friend's iMac has just been shipped. My friend ordered his with the 768 GB SSD whereas I chose the fusion drive, otherwise our configurations were identical.

hoping mine ships soon.

Well, it can't be shipping in order number since I ordered at 3:07 EST. It can't be store type because I bought thru "standard" store. It can't be based on amount spent because Apple has a small fortune from me alone.
So what gives...?
Bases on region? I live in Ohio.

i think it's a weighted average between the # of posts you have on macrumors and the date you joined the forum. So in your case, expect to ship sometime towards the end of 2013

For those of you wondering "why is my order not shipping yet", I advice patience. This happens every time Apple starts shipping a new product.

My experience is that the arrival of the "shipping / tracking info" email is somewhat random, but the actual ship date is not. If people ordered after you and have already received tracking info, take that as a good sign. Your iMac will probably ship within 24 hours, and will probably arrive the same time as everyone else's.

I don't think that's it. We've bought tons of Apple products, I ordered my iMac in the first 15 minutes, and it still says processing. I ordered through the business store, but I really don't think that should delay it. I'm excited for those whose machines have shipped, but I'd like to be excited for me too.

You can call them and add it... if they want to be nice, they may even offer it as a free upgrade. At least, that's been the experience of many people here...

Anyone with an order that includes the 3TB Fusion drive been notified their 27 inch has shipped? I note all who list their specs have lilsted 1TB though some have said fully maxed out, whatever that means. Just curious if the 3TB fusion drive might be a delayed option for some reason. I ordered within the first 30 minutes by direct contact with an Applestore employee on the phone and education discount applied so not sure if that makes any difference. Still shows in the processing stage. Was able to get the shipping upgraded to 2nd day delivery through subsequent call and see that does show though the estimated delivery date is still showing as December 21-28.

Also ordered from Expercom. On Nov 28. i7/680/ 1T Fusion. Also showing up as "Processing."

I have standard shipping so I assume 5 day lag from China to Utah, another day for Expercom to swap in their much more affordable 32 gig house RAM and 4 days to get to the East Coast. Added to that I have to factor in that UPS does not deliver on weekends and that Christmas involves a half-day and a full day holiday. All together, if my iMac were to ship today or tomorrow, I would probably see it right after Christmas, on the 26 or 27.

I have the 3TB non-fusion, and it has not moved past processing. The fusion is a 3TB HDD (probably the same one I ordered) plus flash storage... so it's def possible.

Just called and got mine upgraded to expedited shipping as well for free of charge. Thank you Apple!

I ordered mine at 5am on the 30th, and it still has a status of "Processing Items", although the delivery date did get upgraded from Dec 24-31 (old) to Dec 20-27 (new).

I hope it gets here by Christmas!
