    Hi,

    I want to purchase a new BTO 2.8 or 3.06 Imac. Changes like HDD upgrade wireless mouse/keyboard.
    I am going on vacation the 26th of July for three weeks and I'll be able to order it Friday the 11th or Saturday the 12th of July. I really want to have it before I go on holiday.

    So, How long will it take for a Imac to ship from the day it's ordered.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I live in The Netherlands, I don't know if it makes much of a difference with the US, not for the UK I think.

    I don't know if it's any help to you at all, but I ordered mine a few hours ago, from the UK online store, and have been given a delivery date (to my door) of 23-24th July '09, so that is 2 weeks. The shipping date they quoted me is 15th July '09.

    The thing is with ordering a BTO is that the delivery time is just an estimation. You NEVER know when you are going to get your Mac. It can be anything from 3 days to 4 weeks. Still if it works then it is well worth the wait.

    Damm, that's a long time for such a small distance, a truck can drive that in a day.

    This morning I ordered a BTO 24" 2.8Ghz model.

    It's estimated shipping date is the 16th July and then the delivery should be 24th July.

    My first :apple: so I'm thrilled and apprehensive at the same time.

    I want to thank everyone that's posted in the last month or so as I've read practically every post!

    EDIT: I am in the UK by the way.
