    A thread for us obsessives to compare the configurations we ordered, our shipping status, and delivery dates.

    Please share your iMac orders!

    --- Post Merged, Jun 5, 2017 ---
    My order went through around 13 minutes after the Apple website was refreshed to offer the new iMacs for sale. I decided to max out the CPU and fusion drive, upgrade the RAM to 16GB, and opted for the Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Magic Trackpad 2.

    Estimated Delivery Next week: June 13-16

    BTW: The price is different from what you would expect from that configuration because I ordered through the Education Store.

    To replace my wife's 21.5 mid-2011 iMac that has a failing video card. Update came out just in time. I will upgrade the memory to 32gb later. Plenty of disk space was important to her. Ordered about an hour after the store was reopened.

    Thinking of going in on Wednesday to my Apple store and picking up the $2299 config then upgrading the ram after.

    Anyone here going to order the 21"? I want to, since it now has a dGPU, but I'm disappointed in the max storage at 1 TB :(

    Non-starter in our case due to the non-upgradable memory and limits on drive size. The 1tb fusion has worse performance due to a 32gb SSD instead of the 128gb SSD on the 2 and 3tb models.

    Did the 2015 21" have a 2 TB fusion drive option? I can't remember.

    Not today, but I'm thinking about it. A 512GB SSD is plenty of space for my needs and would be my drive of choice so the 1TB limit isn't a concern. Over all I'm excited that a worthy replacement to my 21" 2011 has finally arrived... except that I gave up waiting a few months back and already invested in an internal SSD upgrade for the aforementioned 2011. :rolleyes:

    I figure I'll let the early adaptors go first and read their reviews before deciding if I should stick to my original plan of holding out one more refresh or if this this is the iMac generation I've always wanted.

    Yes, but they didn't have the 1 TB SSD option. So one step forward, one step back.

    Yes the options for the 2015 21.5" model were 1/2TB Fusion or 512GB Flash.

    Configuration
    27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display

    • 4.2GHZ QC I7, TB UP TO 4.5GHZ
    • 8GB 2400MHZ DDR4 - 2X4GB
    • 2TB FLASH STORAGE
    • AMD RADEON PRO 580 W/8GB VRAM
    • Magic Trackpad 2
    • MAGIC KYBD NUM KEYPAD+UG
    I can't wait. I upgraded the keyboard, went with the trackpad, maxed out the video card & flash because I don't want to try cracking it over...need the CPU for encoding work. I'll upgrade the memory with aftermarket.

    Pardon my French (heh), but this is mine. I'm actually almost more excited about having a magic keyboard with numpad and proper arrow keys than the computer itself :)

    I must say I'm surprised to see that the mouse is such a popular option though, I find it to be far less accurate than the trackpad, constantly scrolling when clicking, lacking in terms of gesture capabilities etc - and it puts far less strain on the shoulder. To me, the mouse is a think of the past unless you're a gamer, which the magic mouse is not made for. What makes you guys choose it over the trackpad? Am I missing something? :)

    Placed the order today. Barely could afford the 27''. I went for the smallest SSD instead of Fusion. Will upgrade with external ssd for storage & aftermarket ram later. Hopefully Radeon Pro 570 will be stutter free. Cheers.

    I would definitely go with the SSD if I were you!

    I ordered the cheapest 27“ iMac with the smallest SSD. Will upgrade RAM later. This should swerve me well for Lightroom in the next years.

    I’m excited when it will ship to Germany. I hope the 16th holds true.

    I agree with 007 Junior: Go with the SSD! You will likely see better performance with day-to-day tasks with an SSD over an i7.

    But also consider how often do you buy a new iMac? If it is only once every few years, splurge a little and get both the i7 and the SSD. :)

    Ahhhhhh, you guys are EVIL (Kronen especially)! I was totally fine with my 2TB fusion drive, and then I keep reading how people here recommend the SSD, even the 512 GB, so I switched it (shifted my delivery by a day, which puts it 15-19... darn weekend). I know I'll be happier in the longrun, I just hate paying more money for less space. I guess I need to look at it as paying more money for faster speeds.

    27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display
    With the following configuration:
    • 4.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz
    • 8GB 2400MHz DDR4
    • 512GB SSD
    • Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB video memory
    • Magic Trackpad 2
    • Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad - US English
    • Accessory Kit

    I'll be adding another 32 GB of RAM to the thing once it arrives.

    Seriously though, thanks for the opinions on the SSD. I have one in my 2013 MacBook Pro, and I probably take it for granted, and would be upset if I just had the Fusion drive.
