My order's estimated arrival date was between October 24th and 28th, but I just noticed my order is in the "Preparing for Shipment" state, so it looks like it'll be on the early side of that! I traded my former iMac to a friend who has a detailing business. In return for the iMac I get free detailing for the life of my car. Just finished setting it up for him (2012 BTO 27" iMac) Seeing how excited he was when he saw my "old" iMac on his desk next to his Windows PC and (now very small looking) Dell monitor made me even more eager to be getting my replacement soon. Just a few more days! Who else has "Preparing for Shipment" now?
