    I ordered a BTO 27" iMac. The only options are a 512 SSD and Trackpad instead of MM. It has been in processing for 4 days. Seems like an awful long time. Apple web site says 1-3 days. Passed that time.

    Impatient or SSD shortage?

    Impatient, its the holiday season so they're busy. Relax you have plenty of time before Xmas.

    Probably had a pulse of orders from Black Friday that put bto order times a little longer.

    I hit refresh on the shipping at least 20 times :) One wants to closely track the birth of their third or fourth [In my case 5th Apple computer]. You don't tell an expectant father to "relax" :p

    I ordered a maxed out 27" on Black Friday, and received it on the east coast yesterday. (8-days)

    I ordered my first 27" iMac yesterday (Saturday) but it has not been shipped yet (today is Sunday). I also added a SSD to mine.

    It states that it will be shipped in 1-3 business days, so I'll hopefully be receiving it sometime later this week.

    I will let you know how long mine took to arrive.
    iMac 27" 3.2ghz quad core i5, 8gm RAM, 256gb SSD.

    Uhhhh Saturday & Sunday are NOT business days. The earliest it will ship is Monday or as late as Wednesday, then it will take a time for the shipper to get it to your front door. Seriously, did you think Saturday or Sunday were business days?????

    Sorry if I was unclear, but I was intending to point out that I ordered on a weekend so it would help give a fair judgement on how long it took to ship.

    So no, i did not mean to say those were business days.

    I was being optimistic on it shipping early this week and getting to me near the end of the week.

    we ordered our iMac yesterday morning, Saturday, by yesterday late afternoon we had shipping confirmation and shipping label, by today it is on its way, so I guess they do ship on Saturdays................

    They do however i doubt your machine was a CTO model, it was probably one of the standard iMac models.

    I ordered on Dec 3rd, 27" with an i7 and 1 TB Fusiondrive. The website estimates delivery (despite express shipping) around the 17th, so that´s quite the wait I think.
    Black Friday might have impacted on that, but then it´s probably not their first holiday season and they might (read: should) have anticipated a certain increase in volume.

    Apple today surprised me by shipping it early and estimating delivery on the 12th! Which is quite handy since I have to lift all my data over before the 20th...

    If it hasn't changed status yet, then I would call Apple as it's now several days past where it should've shipped.

    It just changed status. Mine went the other way. :(

    Only thing I changed was the 512 SSD and a trackpad. Ordered on the 4th and now won't ship until possibly the 13th.

    Mine took a full 5 business days to Canada via Orange, CA [No tracking seen in China, order started in Orange CA]. Order Black Friday, machine arrived yesterday [a day ahead of schedule], paid only for free shipping.

    What is the BTO part? Mine is 512 SSD, maybe there is a shortage.

    My BTO was 4 days. Shipping was (free) next day. Came with Mavericks preinstalled. Arrived Monday.

    EDIT: I did regular shipping, during my BTO time I decided to call and pay to have them upgrade shipping. Apple offered FREE next day shipping right away. Crazy! Customer service is reason enough to stick to Apple!

    I called to change from the Magic Mouse to the trackpad and they threw it in, I get both for free now.
