    Not yet shipped... My MP and ACD go to a new home tonight, so hopefully get the iMac by the weekend. New iPhone Friday too!

    EDIT: Cancelled my order, might CTO an i7, or pick up an i5 tomorrow from my local store, the pickup is quicker than shipping anyway.

    Just a quick question: Yesterday evening i ordered the high end 21.5" with apple remote, "free" ipod nano 8gb, 'free' printer & iphone dock. iMac ships in 4 business days, ipod in 24 hours, dock in 24 hours and printer in 1-2 weeks. The order tells me the shipping will happen when everything is ready. Does that printer REALLY take 1-2 weeks in order to ship?! Would be a real bummer..

    Lucky!!! Ordered mine at noon today, but hasn't shipped yet. Thankfully, apple owed me $150 and free express shipping (from the 4 defective imacs I returned earlier this year) so it says it may still be here by Saturday.

    Hey, are you in the UK by any chance? Just out of interest, which printer did you opt for?

    I live in Belgium and i chose the Epson Stylus SX515W. According to several reviews it's better than the HP Photosmart wifi..

    As for my own question, can anybody please answer? (printer 1-2 weeks delivery)

    Ordered this morning, estimated ship date for the iMac is within 2 - 4 business days. Estimated delivery is sometime between August 3rd and 9th. We'll see if that improves over the next few days.

    Can't wait! So excited! First new Mac in almost 4 years!

    A UK buyer is experiencing problems with this printer delaying their shipment, even though the store says that it ships in 24 hours:

    So, my payment arrived and the estimated delivery date is the 16th of august. I ordered on the 27th of july. That's a really long time.. But that's because the printer (epson) is out of stock. I will call Apple Support and tell them i want to order split.

    Mathijs - that's weird. I'm in the U.S., but last June when I ordered my MBP with itouch and "free" printer, it ALL came piecemeal. (Almost every component came on a different day without me asking.)

    I still think it's a good idea to call and ask them to ship it individually, though. Btw, I got a similar Epson with my last Mac, and it works very well. I'm still a fan of HP printers, however, so I currently use an HP C6180 All-in-one. This is my second one; I sold the other one because I was leaving Hawaii, where I was living at the time, and didn't want to bring it with me. (No wi-fi, but I can scan, fax, it has a card reader, good copies, pretty fast, AND individual inks that I just had refilled at Costco, cheap.)

    So far with the Costco ink I've only printed out black and white stuff, and the quality seems exactly the same as HP. They say, in fact, that it is the same HP ink. When i print out a photo, I'll have a better idea of the quality.
    The one thing that bugs me about the HP is that if ONE of the ink cartridges runs out, you can't print anything until you replace it. So each cartridge has to have ink in it for the printer to work. You can still scan, fax, etc.
    I've seen lots of All-in-ones very cheap on Craig's List, in case it's a Mac choice and you don't want to do the rebate thing.

    FYI PC SWITCHERS

    Be aware that (just like with Windows 7, now :p) a lot of printers aren't Mac compatible, even sometimes when they say they are. At least, this is how it was about 4 years ago, it might have changed. I'd double-check with the sales person/internet and keep your fingers crossed.

    Thanks for the intel. My idea of calling Apple Support about splitting the order comes from another UK user who ordered the same printer and Apple itself sent him an e-mail 24 hours after the order was payed, that the printer (epson) is not in stock. Therefore they advised calling Apple Support and have the order split. So that's why i will do the same thing..
