Update: Eat my words!!! My new Imac arrived today Here are the specs: Apple iMac 27" with Retina 5K Display, 4.0GHz i7, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, AMD Radeon R9 M390 2GB, OS X El Capitan (Late 2015) Ordered from Adorama on the 6th. Was happy to get free AppleCare and no sales tax and some other discount. Total of $387 saved vs ordering direct from Apple.com. Adorama claims that they dont charge your CC till the item ships. They emailed me on the 8th to say it was backordered as it was being drop shipped from the manufacturer. On the 9th, they charge my CC the full amount. I emailed them yesterday (13th) to ask the status and they reply: According to the manufacturer, this is currently backordered and they estimate that this will be shipped out by the 1st week of December 2015. I asked them to remove the charge from my CC till it ships. Does anyone else with the same config see a backorder for a month if you ordered direct from Apple.com?
