    I ordered a 24" on Wednesday and It said 5-7 days to ship and then less than 5 for it to arrive. From what I understand, if you order anything besides the basic 24" model then it will take 5-7 days, a base model 24" will take 2-4 days. Mine is shipped 15th arrive on the 22nd.

    Had my 20" Core Duo iMac replaced by a 20" Core 2 Duo iMac, which shifted the delivery dates somewhat - ship by 15th, deliver by 19th.

    Mine's built-to-order - it's got the 256MB video card and 2GB of RAM in it - but I think these dates might be the case for all UK iMacs.

    I hope it comes sooner but I'm not hopeful! I ordered the first one on 21 August... first Mac is a long time coming!

    Has anyone actually received a 20" BTO iMac? I am eagerly waiting for my first Mac to be shipped, and I am curious about when they are actually being shipped.

    I ordered a 20" BTO iMac on August 31 before the iMacs with Core 2 Duo were released. My order still hadn't shipped by Sept. 6, so I was fortunate enough to have Apple upgrade my order. However, the expected ship date moved from the 8th to the 14th. I cannot complain about the change in expected ship date, but it would be nice if it shipped today :p

    I placed my order on September 10th:

    24"
    2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB
    NVIDIA GEFORCE 7600 GT w/256
    250GB Serial ATA Drive
    SuperDrive 8X (DVDR-DL/CD-RW)
    WL kybd, Mse & Mac OS X
    Country Kit

    It's scheduled to ship the 18th and arrive the 25th. Does anyone have any experience w/ the free ground shipping? Does it really take that long to ship the computer or is it just an overstatement? It will be shipping to California.

    See my previous post.

    I did standard shipping and it's going FedEx with 2-day delivery.Apple's pretty good about this type of shipping.

    If it was picked up by FedEx in Shanghai that means it went straight to the Shanghai airport facility from the factory.That's what IP Direct distribution means.
