I ordered my imac 17" the day it was released and at the time apple was estimating a 2-4 week shipping date but now i see that its no longer there and i'm hoping that it gets to me before i leave for college. Anybody have any clue as to when the 17" is shipping??

Why don't you call Apple with your order information and have them check on it??? Instead of speculating as to when it will arrive... :rolleyes: :p

BTW, you will get your iMac on the day you get it, and not a day before or after that. :p

My friend went through the same dilemma you're going through and he decided that it was worth getting the imac after seeing it for himself at the apple store. I didn't believe how big the monitor was when i saw it.

Getting a 17" imac would be the best right now since there aren't any new Powermac annonced yet. I did test the new 17" at the store as well and I have to say is a great size. Very workable screen size. I tested photoshop on it and worked on it for about 15 minutes and I was surprise how much space there is. Now only that but you get a superdrive with 800mhz! excellent can't wait - I just hope that there are enough units for the demand.

For an extra 200 bucks you get extra HD, A way phater screen, and a faster graphics chip.......unless you really cant afford the extra 200 you'd be crazy not to get the new 17 inch imac, my gf and i are ordering one next week for our apt.....to complement the ibook. But I know my mother will get hers first.

Regarding Your iMac.

Dear Dynamicd,

I happen to live within five miles of Apple Headquarters, in Cupertino. Not certain if this is a major shipping point for the newly-enhanced iMacs, but if you give me a model or tracking number I'd be happy to swing by and check on yours.

I believe the new iMacs are shipped from the same location that the 15"'s are.. which is Elk Grove, California.. about 10-15 miles south of Sacramento ... I also happen to live within 5 miles of Apple in Cupertino :p
