    I see that you can pre-order the new iMacs on Amazon.com.......any idea when they will be in stock? Just wondering.....cuz if it's going to be a couple of months then forget it:) but if its in the next few weeks i can handle that.......how long has it taken in the past for new items to appear at Amazon.......any responses would be amazing!:)

    Thanks bunches

    The last time it took Amazon about 2 weeks after MWSF intro for iMacs to show as "Available to ship" and it took maybe another two weeks before my iMac arrived through free ground shipping. If I paid for a 2nd day shipping, I probably could have shaved a week.

    *bump*

    I'm looking to order the 24" on Amazon, I have everything ready to go but it's showing up as November 11th ship date.

    I hope that it will change soon... or should I go ahead and pre-order? I've heard bad things about Amazon pre-orders, but I'm willing to do it if that means I can get my computer earlier :)

    I have been wondering about Amazon as well- I would like to get a 20" or 24" from them.

    I am not really worried about the ship time, but does anyone have any experience with ordering macs from amazon?

    Basically- I assume it would still work w/ apple's 9 month or whatever warranty. Is this correct? Can I buy applecare for an amazon purchased iMac? What is their return policy like?


    I have had nothing but good experiences from amazon so far, but I have never bought something like this from them. Any info is greatly appreciated!
