Apple begins shipping first orders of new 27-inch iMac

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Customers who preordered Apple's newly redesigned 27-inch iMac have begun receiving notifications that their order has shipped and will arrive before Christmas.

A number of AppleInsider readers have received word from Apple that their 27-inch iMacs, ordered when they first went on sale in late November, have shipped.

Readers said their orders have shipped from Shanghai, China, and are estimated to arrive on Dec. 18—one week before Christmas. These customers indicated that their estimated shipping dates are earlier than was originally indicated by Apple once the orders were placed.

The 27-inch iMac is expected to be in limited supply, as estimated shipping times quickly slipped after the all-in-one desktop went on sale at the end of November. As of last week, new orders are now scheduled to ship in January.

iMac


Meanwhile MacMall and B&H Photo tell AppleInsider that they have received stock of Apple's 2.9GHz 21.5-inch iMac, which they are ready to ship immediately ( 1, 2 ). Apple's online store still lists lead times of 7 to10 business days for this model. MacMall offers a $5 discount, while readers looking to purchase their new 21.5-inch iMac with Apple's 3-year extended protection plan can save $108 off Apple's retail price when taking advantage of B&H's Buy Together and Save promotion, which also throws in a free copy of Parallel's Desktop or FileMaker Bento.

The redesigned iMac has an aluminum that is 5-millimeters thick at its edge and also features a reengineered display which Apple claims reduces reflections by 75 percent. Speed has also been increased thanks to new quad-core Intel silicon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics processors, the latter of which is said to deliver up to a 60 percent boost in performance.

The new iMacs can also be upgraded with a Fusion Drive, a hybrid hard drive solution that combines the performance of solid-state media with the capacity and affordability of a hard drive. Apple solution couples 128-gigabytes of flash memory with a standard hard drive to create a single storage volume that intelligently manages frequently-used files and programs to optimize performance.

I still haven't put in my order. Looks like I won't have it until January now.

Curious if you purchased a standard configuration or did you get a Build-to-Order machine?

I'm curious, too. Usually I pick up in the store but I'm thinking my build (max everything but minimum RAM) will only be available as a BTO option.

My business partner has the rMBP (with the 27" LED).  Loves it.  That being said, he's still buying an iMac for the home office.

That is awesome !!   What time did you order it?   (I'm assuming you ordered it on the 30th, I put my order in at 3:30pm)   Also is yours BTO?

You know, for a company that specializes in the video-graphics market, you'd think that they would offer top-of-the-line GPUs...

 

WITH THE NEW MAC PRO THEY FINALLY DID!  (But you bend over for it.)

I want to get a doer for Christmas. Wonder if mine will also ship from Shanghai.

 

I hope it works out better than that helper monkey I ordered.

I want to know when they will make a 27" cinema display with that profile. The current was looks ridiculously bulky by comparison.

Do you have an Apple Store nearby. They will likely receive stock. If all you want is a standard machine you could get lucky and have a machine by the weekend

I ordered a BTO on the first day, too, but through my local shop.  While the Apple Store was technically still listing 2-3 weeks, the shop told me that their internal order system said it would be January.

 

If it arrives during December, I'll just start believing in Santa Claus again.
