I wanted to see if anyone else has had a similar problem to what I'm experiencing. I am using the Apple.com website, purchasing two items from the Japanese store. I purchased an iPod with engraved message, and a standard iMac 20" model (requested the US keyboard, since the two options were JP or US). Nothing else changed about the basic model from the site. After 4 days of waiting for them to verify the bank transfer, I got confirmation today that the iPod with speciality engraving with ship today. Yeah! But here's the unbelievable news: the iMac won't ship until at the earliest the 26th. I know this sounds like a complaint, but what the heck? I won't get the item until the 30th of the month? That's what it tells me... Yet, on the website, written very plainly, is the words "ships within 24 hours." I have an HD video project waiting for me to get working on it, and I need to get it finished by the 30th. My MacBook just can't handle it the way it needs to be handled. Has anyone else had this much trouble with the website and shipping? Just in case anyone's confused, Apple computers are virtually the exact same except for a sticker somewhere labeling it, and the keyboard layout. The last time I ordered a MacBook, I asked for it with a US keyboard, and it showed up within two days of my order. The MacBook keyboard is integrated into the laptop, and yet I got that within a few days. Why is it that this iMac can't arrive for nearly two weeks?
