    I ordered a BTO iMac on Monday around 4pm ET and it hasn't shipped yet.

    Has anybody else's BTO iMac shipped yet?

    Thanks

    Mine has (UK). Sorry.
    It was estimated to ship today, but last night (20:30ish) it said "prepared for shipment" and this morning (05:00am) it says it was shipped yestuday and has a sooner delivery estimate than it previously did, so they must be getting through them.
    My order was a top end 24", it was configured with a 750Gb hard drive increase and wireless kb/mouse. Order placed on 28th at 13:42 GMT via the royal mail employee purchase program apple store (not that I expect that makes a any difference to delivery times)

    Mine hasn't shipped yet either

    I ordered a new 3.06 imac Monday evening (around 8pm CST) customized with a 1 TB hard drive and a wireless keyboard, and it still has not shipped. Getting very impatient!

    I ordered a top-of-the-line 24" iMac with a 750GB Hard Drive on Monday afternoon. It say on Apple's site that it shipped on the 30th, but UPS' website has the status at 'received billing details'...

    Good news is that my 4Gb of Crucial RAM arrive this morning

    Ordered mine about 30 minutes after it went on sale. I got the 3.06ghz with a 1TB HD, two-day shipping. It shipped Tuesday and arrived an hour ago! Now I just need to lug it home on the subway.

    Didn't they deliver it to your home?

    Mine has an estimated delivery date of 7th May. I'm so excited! Probably the 1st thing I am going to do is install Windows and play Half-Life 2: The Orange Box.

    I live in an apartment in Brooklyn without a doorman. The UPS guys have a bad habit of just leaving packages on people's doorsteps!

    Czech holiday

    I ordered my 3.06G/750GB/4GB on Monday evening here in London with an estimated shipping of 1 May / delivery 7-8 May and it's been sitting on 'Prepared for shipping' for the past couple of days.

    I just received an email from the Apple Store saying there was a public holiday in the Czech Republic yesterday and it'll be shipping sometime today instead.

    May day fun!

    Regent Street in London is fully stocked. Maybe some UK people who are waiting might want to pay a visit to their local Apple Store and then cancel the online order.

    Thanks - but an order can't be cancelled once it's entered 'Prepared for shipment'

    Mine finally switched from "Prepared for Shipment" to "Shipped" some time late last night after I went to bed. So they just barely got it shipped by the promised May 1.

    Mine went from "Prepared to ship" (I was going to cancel it and go buy one at the store when this happened... heh. Damn.) to shipped sometime last night as well. Fed Ex'd and is in Sacramento right now. Delivery says tomorrow.

    o_O

    That would be cool.

    I ordered a 3.06 ghz system on Wednesday evening. I went with the standard build, but my order said something about it being customized.

    But it shipped this morning. Expected delivery: 5/7. That's my wife's birthday. It's going to be hard not to play with the new iMac on her birthday. :)
