    For those of you who ordered BTO (build to order) what is the status of your order?

    Obviously if you ordered the 4850 or 8gb of RAM you are on a couple week backorder.

    If you changed some of the other option like hard drive capacity, CPU, mouse, remote, etc., you were given a short wait time.


    What is the status of your Mac?

    Mine is:

    Order Date: Mar 3, 2009 at 08:37 AM PST

    Not yet shipped
    Ships: 2 - 4 Business days
    Delivers: Mar 9 - Mar 13

    Yeah, I ordered one for my parents on the same day as you did. I checked today and theirs still hasn't shipped either. The estimated delivery time still matches what you have above. I wish they'd ship the thing already.

    I ordered my parents a new iMac on Wednesday (3/4). It shipped the next day (3/5) and is already on the truck to be delivered to them today (3/6). It shipped out of Pennsylvania. When I ordered my MBP a few months back, it was shipped out of Shanghai, China. I hope this delivery is the iMac and not the free printer it came with!

    EDIT: Just looked at the email my mother received and it is just the printer and AppleCare. I should have realized this ridiculously fast shipping time was too good to be true!

    to:

    Mine would have been here by now, but they changed it to the new iMac model which is why its been delayed.

    Yeah, that's the same reason that mine (my parents actually) was delayed. I'm glad that they upgraded them to the new model but ticked off at the delay in shipping. I live about 300 miles away from them and was going to be in town during the time they were supposed to receive it. I could have been in the same house and helped them set it up. O well, a remote iChat set up it is, then.

    I got a weird problem while checking my status. It says:

    "We're Sorry

    Can someone check and see does he have the same problem
