Talking it arrived

My 3T Fusion 27in tripped out imac preloaded with pages ordered 11AM MTN time on Nov 30th was originally scheduled for delivery dec 28 - jan 3 or something like that. Then i upgraded to express delivery which bumped it up 3 days. When apple changed from processing the order to preparing for shipment Apple estimated a Dec 20 delivery. Fedex, once the tracking number was established, estimated the delivery date for today Dec 19th. It was a big surprised to wake up yesterday to find it was on the truck for delivery a day early. It was easy to unpack was in pristine condition and i'm loving it. The only little thing is, i'm not an audiophile by any means, but when playing music it sounds like it's coming from a tin can. I guess it is a giant tin can so to speak but didn't want the tunes to sound that way. If you are into playing your tunes on an iMac you may want to start looking for some 3rd party speakers. Overall a sweet machine! Hope you guys are unpacking yours as well. Merry Christmas.

Very concerned by this as the reviews said positive things about the speakers...are you certain your machine is not damaged in some way or need setup?

Ordered around 3PM EST on the first day, was in the first batch of folks to get the second set of delivery dates I guess. My Order page always showed December 31-Jan 7.

Updated date was Dec 26th once it went from Processing to Shipped.

UPS changed from the 26th to the 24th, which is what it still shows.

It left Louisville 45 minutes ago, I've still got crossed fingers that I might see it tomorrow, hoping that I could at least go pick it up at the local UPS spot on Friday afternoon at worst, since I leave for NJ late friday.... Otherwise I'm gonna have to have them hold it at UPS till the 27th...

Edit:
27" high end i7, 3tb fusion, 16GB, 680 MX.

It's finally on its way!

It's coming! It's coming! Just shipped today via UPS with arrival date listed as Christmas Eve.

I5 3.2, 8GB RAM, 1TB Fusion, 680MX, Trackpad. Ordered 8pm Nov. 30 with projected delivery date given as Dec. 31 - Jan. 7. Looks like Apple's going to beat their projection by 1-2 weeks. It's going to be a very merry Christmas indeed!

Don't give up hope, I just got this:

Scheduled For Early Delivery On:
Thursday, 12/20/2012, By End of Day
Originally Scheduled For Delivery On:
Monday, 12/24/2012, By End of Day

So that's 11 days earlier than first estimated!

Still preparing for shipment, nearly 2 full days to put a box inside another box.

Is that standard time, or am I unlucky again?

Prepared for Shipment at last! Ordered 1 Dec.

This is a re-post for everyone following this thread!

Ordered on 1 Dec (Australia) and woke up this morning to "Prepared for Shipment" at last!

Attachment 384610

Thank goodness I don't have to look at the dreaded "Processing" anymore..I was going insane.
This is the fun part now!

Yes, but they can't speed up the delivery date any.

At this point, I'm tired of tracking my order. It's gotten old seeing the processing status for over 3 weeks now, and I'm no longer enjoying the process of anticipating my order changing to preparing for shipment. I just want it to change now. It's gotten old and annoying at this point.

Not sure if you were talking to me or not, but if so: I ordered on Nov. 30 at 8pm in the evening pacific time (which would be Dec. 1 at 4am GMT), 16 hours after pre-orders went live.

I was just thinking the same. Where are you located? I'm outside Chicago.

I've only refreshed 15 times tonight, down from the 25 during the day. Ugh. I'm a tool.

No worries, I'm obsessing over my iMac too. I'm in the Dallas area.
