I ordered a base 21,5'' and a fully loaded 27'' through a german education APR on 30th of november: nothing for both models!

I call once a week and have never been given any delivery info, kinda annoying!

I ordered on Dec 3 from an APR and call every 2 weeks and the lady always says that they have no new information, although on the last call I made this week she told me that even though their information hasn't changed they are expecting that my iMac and 2 others that where ordered on Nov 30 should arrive by the 25th of January i'm just hoping she's right at this point.

Free shipping and Applecare at half off made it an offer I couldn't pass up. Last time I checked with them on 12/30 they told me that probably within a week or two my computer should ship.

Nothing yet and it's getting close to that 2 week time period they told me. This is the first time I've bought an Apple computer and had to wait this long to get it!! It's driving me nuts!! lol Hopefully I'll get it soon!!
The apple care through BH is not half off, it's about 28% off.
From apple=$169
From BH =$122

When I ordered my iMac it came with Apple Care bundled and I was only charged $61 for it. So yes half off.

Unless it was a previous model of the imac, not the current "LATE 2012" model, Apple Care does not come "bundled".

It is a add on for a discounted price, as show on the BH website.

Here is the "stock 27 inch 2.9ghz with 8 megs of ram from B&H Photo"

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._Computer.html note the apple care add on for $122

27", 3,2 Ghz, 1TB Fusion, 8GB, 675MX
Quite frustrating that others who ordered directly at Apple with similar specs have already received their orders, while mine isn't there yet.

Before I placed the order, I asked the sales guy at A-mac whether it would make any difference in delivery date if I buy at Apple or at them. He answered with 'It comes all from the same place, so no it doesn't make any difference'.

He lied. Last time I bought stuff @ A-mac Amersfoort.

I just got word from my premium reseller who spoke directly with Apple. The expected delivery is mid February. More than 2 months delivery time, quite chocking!

I've spent 6.000 euros on Apple products the last 12 months and now they are really pissing me off. This is not acceptable.

I ordered 3x i5, from our local APR on 4/12/12. No sign of them yet and the APR seems to have no idea when I am likely to get them.

I could have bought them directly from Apple for the same money (I had a quote) and would almost certainly have received them by now.

I will know for next time thats for sure.

In Finland. It's a small, local Premium Reseller.

They also said that the delivery time has slipped to 6 weeks now (apple website still says 3-4 weeks).

So do resellers only get "pallet" deliveries instead of individual orders? Held until X number of machines for a given reseller accumulate, then ship all at once?

BH Photo told me about 7 days ago that they were waiting for 40 units. Out of those 40 they have 19 orders to fill. The balance will go into their inventory.

When I ordered a BTO Macbook Air there was no "pallet" as far as I know, delivery time was about two weeks.

I don't know about the iMac though, my reseller said they have a bunch of iMac orders laying around, all waiting for delivery.

Ordering directly from Apple is a whole lot faster, that's for sure.

I ordered last night on B&H and just called their customer service for an estimate. The person I spoke to checked for me and said they expect 1-2 weeks for delivery. He made sure to mention that it is not guaranteed, but according to the shipment they have coming in, it should be on track for that.

Crossing my fingers because that would be much sooner than the month+ I was expecting.

For those curious, I ordered the 3.4GHz i7, 8 GB Ram, 3TB Fusion, GTX 680MX. It came with Parallels 8 for free along with a discounted version of AppleCare (and no tax!).
