So I’m a newbie to this site, but I’ve been reading here for months. I had planned on getting a new computer for my birthday for casual family usage. My birthday was 3/19! I ordered the new iMac that day (I had been waiting since I knew the iMac was due for a refresh). However, after reading a thread about the different specs for educators (I’m a teacher), I realized it didn’t make sense to go with the configuration I had: 27 base CPU with extra 8gb of RAM and 512 SSD. So I canceled the order and got the 27inch high end with i5 processor and 580 GPU. I hope it’s not hot. The only gaming we might do is the City Skylines since I was a big fan of the SimCity line. Based on specs, it should be able to run that. The price tag was already high so I can’t justify the additional GPU for a home computer. My previous computer is a 2010 13 inch MacBook PRO. I wanted to get another laptop, but these specs are much better for the price and I hardly ever move my computer.
The bummer is that the new delivery date is April 4-8, and my original date was April 1-3. I’m so sad I have to wait even longer. I’m hoping Apple might ship it sooner but we will see.
Just received tracking info from UPS, showing both my iMac and AirPods 2 will be here this Thursday the 28th! Not sure if mine got bumped up to ship with the AirPods or regardless, but I’ll take it! I was already going to be taking some time off of work this week.
Ugh so jealous. Mine is still in processing with a message saying it will take longer to ship than usual. Dates still say 4/4-4-8. Dates ok cancelled order were 4/1-4/3. Wish I could get those back, but the solid state drive and better processor are worth the wait I guess.
First time ordering.. used a friend and family discount and decided to pick up in store instead of shipped to house. Are these deliveries normally slower that shipping direct ? Apple store is on my way home from work so figure as soon as I get notified it there I’ll be on my way.
