    Hi all,

    I ordered my i7 this past Saturday (Dec 12th) and a printer at the same time. The full amount including tax for my printer was deducted from my account almost immediately. Of course, the money for the iMac wasn't--as far as I understand it, that won't disappear until the "prepared for shipment" stage.

    However, checking this morning, I noticed a further charge from the Apple Store that appeared within the last 12 or so hours. It's for a small sum ($30 or thereabouts)...but I haven't anything on order apart from the iMac. Consequently I'm confused. Anyone know what this charge may be? Is it indicitive of anything or should I be on the phone to Apple shortly trying to find out what's going on?

    Any help appreciated!

    Is it a charge or a pre-authorization? Pre-authorizations are fairly common and disappear after a few days. Your best bet is to call Apple or your bank as they can tell you the answer swiftly.

    Apple puts a hold on the entire amount on my card, instantly.

    Yeah, turns out that I can't remember what I did over the weekend...but it certainly included going to the Apple Store and buying software... :eek:

    Not sure about your case

    When I ordered a unibody MacBook for my wife rom the apple store there was a test charge of $36.14 which was removed once the order shipped and debited to my account.

    Heh, nowhere near as much as I'd like to have been. Just tired from work. And very, very hungover from the office Christmas party the night beforehand! ;)
