    I really hope this happens for the 27" iMacs too. Congrats on your change for the better!

    To be honest I'll be happy if it turns up before the holidays. It will give me sometime to get it set up and used to it.

    How do you track your order?

    Be honest how many times have you checked your order progress so far? Nothing has changed for me but that doesn't stop me looking 5 times a day!

    Have you the "sent status" activated? Or it's still on "preparing to send"?

    Lucky, I ordered a maxed out 21.5", in the UK.

    Still says December 13th to December 18th.

    What's weird though, it says "Estimated 7 to 10 days", but the 13th is longer than 7 to 10 days. I really hope it comes in 7 days...or less.

    Preparing to send. The joy of BTO!

    My bto 27 said 2-3 weeks and that means before the 21st yet the date is 21-02nd. I thought that was strange too.... Unless the 2-3 weeks is for dispatch and the dates include shipping maybe...

    Oh yeah, you're right. It will be dispatched in 7 to 10 days (Or 2 to 3 weeks for you) and arrive 13 Dec. to 18th Dec. (Or 21st to 2nd for you).

    If you put your mouse over the blue arrow next to "Processed Items" it tells you what they mean and the current state is highlighted blue.

    Well...that kinda sucks :(

    Six or seven! :D I'm planning on calling and see if I can change to expedited shipping, as I didn't notice I could select that while ordering at 2AM.

    Called in, got my shipping changed, now shows 21-28th. I assume they are going to charge me the extra shipping, which is fine if I can hope to get it on the 21st. Others have mentioned luck getting it added for free.

    Going to be busy with Christmas plans from the 22nd to the 27th, so I don't really want FedEx leaving it on my doorstep while I'm not home. I know it says signature required, but my FedEx guy left my iPad on the step even though I left a note asking that he specifically try delivering it to the neighbor across the street. Keeping my fingers crossed!
