    I ordered a refurb iMac that said shipping in 24hrs 2 days ago and it still says that its status is "Not Yet Shipped", its not even prepared for shipping, does Apple work on the weekend or is there something up with my order?

    The time is estimated, so it's not 100% sure. Refurbs are different because they are not always available.

    People don't work at weekends without extra pay and Apple doesn't pay extra.

    That doesn't help you if they ship it because the carrier works only at businness days. If you want, call 'em and ask for overnight/super fast delivery but usually they charge for that

    Like HellHammer said, even if Apple's shipping did work weekends, it wouldn't much matter, as Fedex does not.

    Very few shippers will do anything on the weekends without excessive charges.

    If you ordered a new Mac that was manufactured in China, that's a different story. They do work and ship weekends there. As for the US, it's Monday-Friday only.

    Amazon Prime - well worth the money

    I've ordered many an item on Sat early afternoon and had it all delivered for 3.99 on Monday - free for Tuesday delivery

    UPS runs full scale on Saturdays for large shippers

    Yep, some of the stuff I just ordered from Amazon (via my Prime account) shipped not only yesterday (Saturday), but some of it shipped out today (Sunday!).

    I ordered a refurb iMac yesterday (Saturday), and it shipped the same day. It was the 2.8GHz 24" model for $1199.
