    My Retina iMac is on it's way from Shanghai, China and is due to arrive by Friday. It was ordered the day of the Event.

    When did you order yours? Is it on its way? When will it arrive? Is it coming from China or Ireland? :)

    According to Chipmunk: Production year: 2014
    Production week: 42 (October)

    So it's definetly "new". Wow.

    So they are not made in the US like the mac pros? Wasn't that the word going around.

    I am as well. I originally wasn't expecting this until a few days before Halloween; now I'm told it's due by Friday!

    the only glitch I've had is that they authorized for twice the amount on my card. Apparently this is standard practice, but it maxed out my credit and now I can't buy food :-(

    Oh well - maybe by Friday I'll be as thin as the iMac! (I'm already pretty thin!) lol

    ----------

    That's correct. China and Ireland are the two factories. If you live outside of the Pacific Rim they usually come from Ireland, I think. I believe the MacPros are made in Dallas, TX. There was a Twitter post from Tim the day he visited. (But don't look at the background) :eek:

    You're lucky! Due report first impressions when it arrives. Your configuration is the sam as mine; assuming you got the 1TB fusion drive also.

    I know there are many here who would suggest getting a SSD as well but I spent the funds on a Time Capsule instead. I can live with the 128MB SSD.

    Double charging your card or holding double the amount is not standard practice as far as I recall with Apple. All items purchased online had holds for the purchase amount and nothing more. that is weird.

    I haven't seen any word going around that the new iMacs were made in the US.

    Of course, that matters, because if it's not made in the US of A, then it's just no good. :rolleyes:

    A couple of decades ago, you would have seen the same ignorance but you would replace China with Japan. The made in China joke has been irrelevant for at least a decade.

    Metanoiapi, yup 1tb fusion drive. I will have an external thunderbolt ssd but will see how well it does w/o at first. I'll let you know how it goes.

    I think it has something to do with using optional financing; such as Barclay or PayPal.

    I found this faq page and down at the very bottom it talks about this. http://www.aboutbarclaycardus.com/faq.php

    Granted, it's weird.
