    Hello there! Thought i would join up as i should be receiving my iMac anytime this week!! I have been using windows for years now but wanted a new venture and decided to "move" over!!
    I cant believe how many people have had various problems with the 27" though and got me a bit worried!! I just hoping im going to get a good one out the batch!! I have been so excited about getting it!! Constantly checking the order status lol!
    Only thing is still isnt showing a carrier yet or tracking number :( But its got delivery date 14th Jan...
    I have discovered the checklist aswell that i need to run through when i get it up and running and will report back!!
    Here is the spec i went for..
    27" iMac
    PROCESSOR 2.66GHZ QUAD-CORE INTEL CORE I5
    MEMORY 8GB 1066MHZ DDR3 SDRAM - 4X2GB
    HARD DRIVE 1TB SERIAL ATA DRIVE
    GRAPHICS ATI RADEON HD 4850 512MB
    OPTICAL DRIVE8X DOUBLE-LAYER SUPERDRIVE
    MOUSE APPLE MAGIC MOUSE-Z
    APPLE SOFTWARE - IWORK IWORK

    Look forward to being apart of the iMac world!!

    Welcome and congrats! That machine is a beast. You'll receive your tracking number once your order has been shipped

    I ordered mine too and it's supposed to be shipped on the 19th.
    I highly doubt the invoice number is also the serial number of the machine, right?
    I'll post in a week.
    In total honesty, this is Mac number 4 in my family since 2003 and, with the exception of my wife's MacBook, I always had to return it the first day for some problems.
    I have to say though that I'm still using my first Powerbook G4 as if it was brand new, and it's now going for his 7th year of hard work.
    Che sera, sera! We'll love the beast!

    Congratulations on your new iMac:). If you are new to the Mac remember there are many video tutorials on Apple's website to help ease you through the transition. There is a learning curve that can be frustrating to new users. Let the Mac do things it's way and don't try to force it to be a PC. A great book is "Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual" by David Pogue. His Snow Leopard edition is available on Amazon and probably at the Apple stores. It is a super reference guide that explains the differences and helps guide you through various tasks. Since I have been a PC person at work and at home for 26 years it helped me a lot when I bought my first Mac. Enjoy:D

    My i7 is set to 'In Transit to Customer', just wondering when I will get a tracking id!

    We shall see!
