    lol. Hey, who knows. Maybe Apple will say "Eh, screw it, lets knock this Thailand guy out of the way right quick, there's only one going there...", build, and ship it sooner. I wonder where the most iMac's are being purchased from? Probably the US.

    it probably is because this forum has more lurkers from the asean countries than posters.

    i've got mine in 31st Dec 2012. BTO 27" iMac to Singapore.

    most of the Asean probably is tracking delivery here.

    happy waiting!

    Ordered mine 30 Nov, 27", 3.4 standard RAM 3TB fusion. Arrived before promised date on 19th December ( Chiang Mai Thailand). Tracking was spot on. I'm over the moon, It's just so fast and smooth. Upgraded from an early 2008 24" 2.8GHz core duo. ( added more RAM from Crucial)

    That's fantastic news, what HDD option did you go with? And have you tested your LCD for IR yet?

    3 TB fusion, it's amazingly fast, I've started using it for all Premiere Pro files- backed up of course. Speeds of 300+ typically. No I've not tested the screen, but it's brilliant!. I sit opposite a window (with a blind) the old Mac was difficult, there is some reflection on this one, but really I don't notice it. One month in, I'm still amazed by my new toy!

    From yesterday to today, I lose the button to cancel my order. I presume it's baked and nearly ready to come out of the oven.

    Thank you kindly for the update... kap khun krub ! Glad to hear you don't have IR, there have been a few reports, but nothing wide spread. I have high hopes. How is your fusion drive? happy with it?

    Mine should arrive on Wednesday- curiously it's coming from Birmingham in the UK via Brussells and then to Singapore. Perhaps its a US build?

    Wow, that's some journey. It might have been assembled in the USA. Curious!

    ..and it's in Shanghai now. Yeah very odd, must be a US build. Doesn't make sense if not.

    It's not givnig me an ETA anymore. Latest DHL says "Clearance delay - Pvg - PVG"....

    Anyway, I was thinking about it, and I think that the Trackpad probably was what was shipped from the UK, then the iMac was picked up in Shanghai, and now it's just waiting to get to Singapore. The last imac I bought (about 8/9 years ago) had a similar thing...I think it went all around th world just because I ordered a mouse and another peripheral with it...odd. Anyway I expect it'll arrive on Thursday now.

    The mac I ordered was 27inch 1tb fusion, 680mx, 8gb ram BTO with a trackpad.

    Thailand is still processing!!! I'm sure you will have yours in a few days, once it's in transit ... its gonna happen quick, especially in SG where everything runs like a swiss clock.
