    ok, so order status told me that my iMac would be shipped on or before the 27th of october, now i know that it isn't the end of the day yet, so i will wait till then to take any action. it still says "sent to manufacturing" i was wondering what i should do if by tomorrow it still reads the same thing...i havn't been charged any money for it yet...

    Are you waiting on a 20"? I know plenty of people who are waiting on that model, it looks like a great computer I suggest waiting. What else can you really do?

    Just relax. :cool: I know how it is to be waiting for a new expensive toy, the anticipation can kill you. :eek: But for the most part, I believe quoted ship dates are only estimates, and can change - either earlier or later. There's also the strong possibility that status is not realtime. I can recall at least one order (not sure if it was with Apple, but I'm thinking it was) that still said "processing" or whatever after I got it.

    Unless you were guaranteed same day shipping with overnight service or something, I wouldn't sweat it. Enjoy your new machine when it arrives. :)

    No much you can do. It should flip into one of the shipping statuses soon. It may or may not make it out the door today.

    Also, sometimes I've gotten a delay notifictaion an hour or two before a shipping notification. So relax, you'll get the Mac soon enough.
