    So I just ordered my 27" iMac 3.2ghz with 1tb Fusion drive from my local Harvey Norman store. But they said it was going to be a 6 to 8 week wait till I get it but online it says 3 to 4 weeks??? So my question is how long did you guys have to wait to get your Custom Order iMac?

    I'm going to order mine through apple store online. Did you save by ordering from Harvey Norman store?

    Na not really. I got student discount but thats it. Part of me wished I did buy it online but Harvey Norman have a good return/replacement system.

    3 1/2 weeks through the Apple Online Store, which is pretty good compared to some who are still waiting.

    At this stage i'd only order through the apple online store as they give priority over 3rd party resellers.

    Exactly. Why would you not order from Apple. I would never trust ordering something from a business with the name Norman in it. It just screams shenanigans.

    I ordered from Apple.com and they say 3 to 4 weeks but when I check my order it says between 5 and 6 weeks. Then on the forums most people say they receive theirs early so I don't know what to tell you except that I would think that where you ordered yours is giving you the longest period so that you will feel good when it comes in early. That company has to put in an order too and they are in the same boat as the rest of us that ordered online.

    Order from the Apple online store and you can still get the student discount.

    Ok so, I went to Harvey Norman and cancelled my order and got a refund. Now I've just ordered through the Apple online store. So exciting!!!!!

    Im hoping it arrives early. :) Turns out I saved even more money from doing it through apple.


    Harvey Norman is one of the largest companies in New Zealand. Ive done all my technology purchases through them and always walk away with more free stuff than I actually need lol.

    New Zealand? Well I guess congratulations are in order for not being apart of Australia and by the way thanks for The Lord of the Rings.
