    I ordered my iMac last week and finally got my notification that it shipped. I am pumped to get it, and start playing around with it. Two questions:

    It arrived in Oakland yesterday and said it is going to take 6 days to get to me in Pa. Anyone else have this long of a shipping? Even with ground I thought it would take a day or two.

    I ordered the 3TB fusion drive, am I going to have problems with bootcamp? I read on here that some people have had bootcamp issues with fusion drives.

    The fusion Drive should be fine with bootcamp. I have a fusion drive and had a issue installing windows but it was a windows 8.1 to 10 upgrade problem nothing to do with the fusion drive

    It's not a problem as such but the boot camp partition will only install on the HDD portion of the fusion drive so you don't get any SSD speed benefit.

    There's an order thread That will provide the answers to your order question

    The only issue I had was that it was on the spinning disk which you cannot change, since you're dealing with a logical "fused" drive system. Bootcamp assistant carves out some of the hard drive space for Windows, so its a bit pokey.
