That makes sense! I'm sure that if someone has posted a walkthrough it will work as described - it seems that way from reading the comments on the article provided earlier in the thread.

Decided on the 680mx since am a little skeptical that some of the shipped 675mx so far may be upgraded cards (see posts in other thread) and feel more comfortable having a 2gb card in a computer that I expect to have for 5 years.
My thoughts exactly, would rather go for maxed out components now as I expect the computer to last me for 5 years plus, also I have heard the upgraded car rumours and if they are true they wouldn't surprise me. Both getting the same specification at hopefully around the same time then.. When did you order just for comparison?

Cant wait for it to arrive

Got to love the Education store, that's why I made the decision to buy now as after June I will no longer be eligible :/ March cannot come quickly enough for all of us in this group by the sounds of it...

Configuration: -

- 27 inch model
- i7
- 8gig Ram
- 1TB Fusion Drive
- GTX680MX


Delivers 2nd March - 9th March 2013

Same spec as me, will be interested to see how much of a difference there is in delivery dates - I would hope that there's no more than 3 days seeming as that's what's between us in terms of ordering dates.

Ordered mine on February 4th.

3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM-2X4GB
1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA Drive
NVIDIAGeFrc GTX 680MX 2G GDDR5
APPLE MAGIC MOUSE
Apple WL Kybd (English)+UG
COUNTRY KIT

My original time span for delivery was March 4th-11th. And now it's March 5th-12th. Gonna have to find out what's causing that.

I would expect it the first week of march, and hopefully I do get it by then.

27 inch i7
8 GB RAM ( will replace with 32 myself)

680

Can't wait

Sounds cool! Let us know if it works out.

Basically, after installing the RAM I purchased (32GB $190) and the price I paid through the edu store ($2643), my same speced machine including trackpad and magic mouse comes to $2833. I can't stomach paying $500 more to get the same machine about two weeks earlier. I hope it works super well for you. Good Luck!

The website seems down for the moment.

I'm hoping that Apple will exceed our expectations, and previous experience with them goes along with this. Fingers crossed to all 3 of us getting the new beasts sometime late February/Early March!
I was actually unaware of this issue till now.

I'm in the middle of a video project with a older Mac Pro that's choking from the strain. For me it's money we'll spent. Your mileage may vary of course.

I hope SamPhoto lets us know how the new machine is. By early this morning all the iMacs he referred to were gone. I noticed it was overnight shipping so he? should get his today or tomorrow. Should be racing through the video project. I hope we get to hear.

I think its safe to say that any "in Stock" iMacs as soon as they're mentioned on the internet right now will go out of stock, especially when they're in such short supply. I think that unfortunately its a case of sitting tight and waiting for what we have ordered :/

I've noticed that a lot of people appear to be having their ship dates moved, but what's interesting is that its both forwards and backwards. Really does make you wonder what Mr Cook's ship does with the supply chain, and if it really is first come first served? People in the US also seem to be getting them a lot quicker than anywhere else in the world as well...

Congratulations everyone. A truly happy Valentine's Day! Looks like wait times are still at 4 weeks. I wonder if your times will adjust as time passes?

You may want to enter your information on the Google Doc. If everyone keeps this up it will offer a picture of Apples progress in meeting demand. Thanks to whomever made the doc.

How does that work?

Delivery Date bought forward

Hi All,

My delivery date has been bought forward to the 13th March - 26th March (yay, an improvement of 3 days). I ordered on the 7th February, however I've noticed that some people who ordered on the 14th (yesterday) are getting quicker delivery dates... Where are you guys located? Just starting to wonder if there is some country/region bias?

I was messing around with the country codes on the iMac webpage. It seems all over the world the delivery estimates are 3-4 weeks (US, Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia). However, European wait times are 4-6 weeks. I'm not sure why, that's just what the pages are quoting.

Well you're not the only one ordering an iMac

You probably didn't hit the batch that would be coming earlier. There's probably thousands of orders a day for them.

I chatted earlier with the Apple Store earlier. I was told that all iMacs are being shipped expedited and there is no option to pay for it. From the transcript of the chat you can see that all iMacs are being shipped with the fastest shipping method possible. This seems to be further substantiated by the Google.doc spreadsheet. Cracks me up that the people on the phone always act like they're doing an individual a favor, when in fact it appears to be Apple's policy on all back ordered iMacs.

Transcript of chat:

You are now chatting with Curtis V

Hello! Welcome to the Apple Online Store. How are you doing today?

I noticed many people received expedited shipping on their iMac order. Some upgraded for free some paid. What is this option?

There is not an option to get exipited shipping when you place the order, it is something that it automatically down with the iMac since it is on back order.

So my order is expedited shipping though it still says standard shipping?

That is correct. The iMac already comes with the fastest shipping possible since it is on back order.

Wow! Very cool. Thanks for the information and friendly chat!

Awesome! Is there anything else I can help you with on the Apple Online Store tonight?

No, Thanks so much!

You're welcome! It has been a pleasure chatting with you and I hope I was able to give you an excellent experience with the Apple Online Store! If you have anymore questions feel free to chat back in with us again. Have a great night!

Yes sir, I read your post in the other thread. The thing is, we are still the guys who want free stuff and they have the option not to give us. Actually I tried that on chat and the chat guy told me that it can't be done on chat but to call customer support on phone line instead. Sometimes, showing a little gratitude even if we are granted for things, can't hurt. I will be keep checking my order and possible freebies, call me cheap for that, but I am not gonna act like I am entitled to those by birth right . Who knows, they might even offer some SuperDrive for free
