i purchased my imac on the 1st online. it is a I7, 8gb ram Imac. and i've been waiting anxiously and apple says it will ship on the 15th. and it should be delivered on the 18th. i just checked the status order and it just changed from "not shipped" to "Prepared for Shipment" and i am wanting to know if its possible for me to get my imac before the 18th delivery date.. i am using my imac for my business so the sooner the better!
