    Has anyone else ordered their iMac from B&H?
    I was enticed by their offer of free parallels 8, and $61 applecare with the purchase of a new computer.
    However like everyone else ordering 27" iMacs, the waiting game has begun.
    I called them up and they said they haven't had any shipments from apple. Anyone else have any similar experiences?

    I ordered a 27 with the GTX 675 late January and received it about a week ago now. After my order was in, I noticed the stock said pre-order again. :O

    I still recall they have some models available, such as the 27 1,800 dollars one.

    Wow. They must have had that particular model in stock at the time.
    I ordered around the same time and still haven't heard anything.

    Just placed an order for a 27"

    3.4GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core
    8GB of 1600Hz DDR3 RAM
    1TB Fusion Drive
    nVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX Graphics (2GB)

    Feb 14th -- no estimated delivery -- just hope. this feels like a lottery system -- only thing to do now is wait.

    I ordered the 27" with 8GB Ram, i7, 680MX on 1/21 and I received it this past Monday (2/11).

    It was a smooth transaction and the iMac is in perfect condition. No scratches, dead pixels, light bleeding, yellow tinting on the screen or image retention. No complaints! :)

    Goddamnnnn,
    I called them up and had them e-mail me a specific date only to receive an e-mail telling me 2-3 more weeks :/

    I hope adding my magic trackpad into the mix didn't cause more delay.

    How did you get them to change your order to a magic trackpad? Did you have to call them?

    gotta remember when ordering from B&H they are are closed on Saturdays and a host of religious holidays , which could prolong things.

    FWIW, I ordered a custom configuration from B&H and received it in less than a week at my house! Very impressive.
