Ok then in that case my guess is that yours should go to prepared to ship mode around Feb 4, to about Feb 9th (maybe sooner) which will be before the work slow down due to Chinese New Year. You may have lucked out unless they run into any sort of delay and if that happens then we are all Doomed to wait longer.

The Chinese New Year may slow things down. I'm getting quite concerned about the distinct lack of anyone's orders moving to 'preparing' over the last few days. The last one I could find in the spreadsheet was in the 20th.

End last week things were speeding up. It certainly doesn't look like that now.

I think we are due a flurry of status changes by the end of this week. The calm before the storm.

Desperation is not far away.

I hope you are right.

I cannot do my work on the iMac I have and I'm actually turning down lucrative contracts because I don't have the equipment to do it

Old iMac is dead really. It's had an intermittent issue for a while. But it's not now useable for work

I hope you are right. Would be cool if it shipped this week, but I am not hoping for any miracle right now.
In the Excel sheet, I can see that most of the people who has registered their orders are from the US. Not many from Scandinavia. I see some from Denmark and Sweden ordered early January, and their iMacs are shipped.

I just deleted my bookmark of the apple order site. Got sick of checking it every hour. Try to do a detox

Look for yours to go to Prepared for Shipment in about 1 week is my guess.

Maybe we will have a flurry of prepared shipments all at once soon.

You are most likely guaranteed a change to Preparing For Shipment status this week, most likely on Friday. That's what happened last week for a guy that placed his order on the 4th. It went to Preparing For Shipment on Friday morning, then later on in the day it went to Shipped. Then it arrived at his house the following Monday. Pretty nice, over-the-weekend shipping.

------------------

I really hope we do see a flurry of status changes later this week. And I really hope that mine is included in this flurry. It makes sense that it MIGHT, because when I talked to the Apple rep, he told me they are seeing the 27" iMacs ship about a week or so ahead of schedule for orders placed in January. Not to mention someone with almost identical specs, placed his order on the evening of January 4th, and his went to "Preparing For Shipment" last Friday, went to "Shipped" later on that day, and was delivered to his door step the following Monday (this past Monday). So since I placed my order six days after him, and in the morning, it makes sense that it might go to "Preparing For Shipment" this Thursday or Friday, and hopefully the same delivery routine. When I get the "Shipped" notification, I'm going to check which day it's say to arrive, and on that day I will have a lawn chair, a little table, and a cooler with Pepsi in it on the driveway, and I will be waiting for FedEx starting at 9:00am. (FedEx leaves their center close to my house here at 9am, and the truck that comes by my place finishes his deliveries by 3:00pm, always. Usually FedEx delivers to my house around 11:30am. Unless of course I have something shipped Overnight Priority, which case it will arrive before 10:30am. And now that I'm thinking about it, the iMacs going out just MIGHT be shipping via Overnight Priority, because this other guys was delivered over the weekend, and in the early morning. Well, all I can do is hope..... Hope hope hope hope hope......... DANGIT!

Well my original authorization charge from my bank stayed on my account for 1 week, now it has dropped off. So the next time I see it on my banking statement online which I check daily, will tell me exactly when they will prepare to ship my order. Because they will authorize my account once more just before it goes to Prepared for Shipment. . . So I will be watching daily now. . . but even with this I don't expect to see any movement until at least the end of the month or early beginning of Feb.

I ordered on Jan 15th 2013 at 12:00pm PST USA

27 inch iMac
3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM
3TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive (No Fusion Drive)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5
Magic Mouse
Apple Numbered English Keyboard
AppleCare and 32 GB RAM upgrade to be ordered next week so it arrives about the same time my iMac does.

Did Apple tell you that? And you ordered when? So you expect it a week early which would be what date?

So that tells me (even though no guarantee) that yours may go to prepared for shipping by January 30th or even earlier so that you get it a week earlier instead of Feb 13th you could get it on Feb 6th. I doubt it would come by January 30th or it would be already in prepared for shipping mode based you are in UK. Just my guess.

For me I am hoping to see some prepared shipment status between January 30 at the earliest to Feb 6th at the latest. But I ordered Jan 15th about a week after you, so I will be glad to see your status change as mine will be right behind you.

No. I was told 'probably' week earlier than the 6th. As I say. It's not guaranteed and I'm not getting my hopes up. I also know someone that ordered after me who's iMac is being shipped.

Once you go mac you never go back

You wait til you have a trackpad in one hand and a mouse in the other

I hope well all get them soon

The wait is torturous!

Wow, then that is good news indeed. Yours may go prepared for shipping any day now. Apple is so hard to figure out their shipping priorities. Good luck on getting yours prepared this week.

Oh right ok, I'm in the UK tho but I would love it to be delivered on a Saturday because I'm not at university over the weekend.

I'm not sure if dispatch dates have anything to do with the model you order.

I'm sure I read somewhere they don't deliver on weekends in the UK. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Hardest part os judging delivery in enough time to book a day off work. I will be devastated if I missed delivery.
