Hello, I've just moved this post from another thread because I've just phoned up apple and got a response. anyway.. I purchased my first ever mac (a core i7 iMac) on monday,the 7th. I checked online first to see if the mac would be delivered before Christmas. I found a page that said that a custom 27inch imac brought before midnight on 11/12/2009 would be delivered in time. As I was ordering four days before this I presumed it would be delivered plenty time ahead of xmas. So I went ahead and clicked the buy button. After waiting half an hour to receive my confirmation email I was greeted to find this: "We estimate your order to be shipped 21 Dec, 2009. We estimate your order will be delivered to your shipping address on or before 31 Dec, 2009." So today when I checked here the custom imac 27inch had been removed all together. I phoned up apple and was told pretty much that I was lying and that the custom 27inch was never on there (wish I had taken a screen shot). I was told that the reason my order wouldn't arrive before xmas was because of the magic mouse, which didn't make any sence because they come with a magic mouse as standard. I'm just annoyed as I was told (by the site) that it would arrive well in time for xmas and now I'm being told it wont be here till new years.
