    I'm going to order a iMac in the next few days and will be customizing the order to have a wireless keyboard and mouse. Will this affect the delivery time and how long does it usually take for a iMac to get delivered?

    I am in the UK and will be ordering online through Apple.co.uk.

    Please tell me how long it took you to get your iMac.
    I've heard the delivery is quite quick in some cases but in others it can take as long as 3 weeks! :eek:

    Not that it should really change wether you order your mac or not, but mine took about a week and a half. All I did was customize the wireless keyboard and mouse. If you change hardware, it might take a bit longer.

    Saying that, a friend got a refurb in about 3 days. I think the difference there was that it was already in the UK.

    Ok, a week and a half is fine for me, would've liked it a bit quicker but it's okay, I can wait that long.

    I ordered a Build to Order 24" on the 6th of November, and it arrived on the 13th. So exactly one week for me.

    My refurb took 3 days/

    You could save money and get your iMac quicker by buying a refurb iMac, and then ordering the wireless keyboard mouse separately... If your that fussed.

    Yeah, but I'm getting my iMac with educational discount and that works out cheaper than a refurb with a wireless keyboard and mouse bought separately.:)

    No customisation meant mine took 2 days (well, ordered evening Tuesday, came morning Thursday)
