hey, i may have figured out why some ppl's imacs are taking longer than others, regardless of when they ordered it. maybe they have separate lists-- education store, federal store, and regular store. then they fulfill a certain number of orders from each list. since the federal store probably has fewer sales than the others, my number probably came up faster. the education list is undoubtedly a little longer, and the regular list... well, it's far too long.

yep, still loving my mouse, but i often "forget" to use it. trying to ween myself off a 3-year track pad habit isnt easy.

Cubit and Barvow:
thanx for the time difference reminders. i just felt left out cuz everyone else's fed ex tracking list was so long, and mine only had 2 or 3 notes on it. i feel like they need to pay more attention to MY imac!!!! hehe. just hope the moose have kept the box warm and that my imac's flight is free of terrorist incidents.

if the new imac goes back in time and becomes younger, will it become a G3 blueberry imac?

Gastropod, I ordered my iMac from a long-time local Apple dealer thinking, like you, to help out a local store that's been selling Macs forever. I ordered on Jan. 8th and I'm #8 on their list, but (as of a few days ago) they haven't even gotten their one demo iMac yet and they don't know when they'll be getting more.

Oh, well, I'll probably keep it for a long time, so I can wait a while longer.

It has been fun trying to come to terms with the whole process of shipping en masse, as Apple apparently has had to do with this new super iMac. Now if we can all continue to keep in touch as we learn to get all we can out of this one. I've had a good many since the original Macintosh 128k blazer, so this is a happy moment. Or it will be whenI can get my hands on my box!

YAY, IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE!

{we are interrupting this happy broadcast to bring you some unwanted stress}

you know, i order a lot of fed ex stuff, and a big strong guy named Biff always brings them. today, they sent a WOMAN!!!!! can you believe it??????? she rings my bell and tells me she has a box for me but she cant lift it, so is there anyone who can come to the truck to get it. i wanted to kill fed ex!!! (new motto should be, if you cant lift it, dont work there!!) i thought for a moment, called a male neighbor (who wasnt home), then realized i had a small luggage cart. luckily the box wasnt as big as i expected and was able to fit it on the cart. the fed ex beeeeatch parked her truck so far away and on the wrong side of the street, so it was quite a shlep. and it almost flipped over though getting it over the curb. but the mailman saw me mumbling profanity at fed ex and helped me carry it up the front steps.

{resume happy broadcast}

anyway, the box went straight from alaska to the fed ex facility at JFK airport, which is only 8 miles from here. so here it is, with 4 stops: taiwan, alaska, JFK airport, me!!!

now should i call my husband at work...or hould i hide the imac and continue playing it for som time first? hehe. actually, its very cold out, so i have to wait for it to reach room temp before doing anything with it. i have a 512mb ram module sitting here too. i'll take pix of the imac and make an apple page later. any requests, please ask.

BYE!!

I want to see a top view of the iMac and a back shot. Mess around with the screen position and take shots, those pics are always nice.

Thanks.

great news mac's girl!!! have loads of fun and take lots of photos...tell us if all the buttons on your mouse work in X or only the two topside buttons and the scroll wheel....i think kensington has drivers for X, but i'm not 100% sure....have a GREAT weekend

this is one of the few times that you hope for snowy, cold ugly weather so you have an excuse to stay indoors for like 48 hours straight on your new iMac with out an guiltly feelings of becoming a troll or creature of the night....g

It does seem just the thing to complete your saga. Good thing you hadn't ordered a dozen of them.

Enjoy the experience now that you've got iMac where you want it. Got a name for it yet?

Ordered mine on January 8th from Macwarehouse. Originally told they'd receive their shipment on 1/29. Then 2/8. Now it's 2/20. Just in case anyone's curious how those of us who tried to go with a high-volume mail-order retailer are doing. Me, I'm holding tight for June.

Has Apple stopped deliveries? It looks like they got a few out the door and have stopped. They have only sent out a trickle from what I can see. They don't seem to have shipped any at all outside of the US. Not one re-seller appears to have recieved any.

If this is true it is very bad news for Apple as they must be loosing revenue had over fist at the moment. A full order book and nothing to sell, and a cheased off customer base to boot.

From what I hear, Apple Canada has yet to receive a single iMac.

Dealer in my city has no idea when they are coming in!

I'm really amazed at how slow these are coming down the pipe. Depressing.

Today marks week 4 for me since I ordered... I called Apple for the hell of it and the guy said it was still on track but that nothing would ship until Thursday because of Chinese New Year celebrations...

I ma worried but what yo say comforts me. I talked to the apple phone support guy about when my imac would ship and he said "early next week." Which would indicate Yesterday or today the 12th. I didnt ship either!

Hopefully the Chinese new year has something to do with this. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

it's the year of the horse, so maybe they're celebrating by shipping your imac via pony express?

i hope you get it soon!

I got bad new for all of us waiting for our imacs to ship. Just called the Apple Store (i've been making a habit to call everyday), and anyway they said that no imacs will be shipping this week due to the chinese new year. That kinda sucks, but hopefully they didn't stop building them this week. Anyway, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I ordered my iMac (800Mhz) Feruary 4th from the Apple Store (I live in Finland) and today they told me that production will take 40 work days and shipping 4-5 days.

It will be a loong time waiting until April...

You're Kidding, right?!? :eek:

I'll be ordering one on Monday (It's tax free week in PA then), so that means another TWO MONTHS!

Sigh. That's a bummer

Well, all new problems today. I checked my order status this morning and my imac had switched from being assembled (where it had been for three weeks) to
Being Reviewed.
Oh well, I guess I'll call the Apple Store and find out the problem. At least its making my wait time interesting.

post #188 of 241
I am not kidding, but we have to notice that production times are different in different countries. So propably you (bauman) dont have to wait as long as I have to.

post #189 of 241
ok, good news for me, the being reviewed thing was just a small problem and they said it would ship in the next 24-48 hours.
yippeeee

Well, ordered mine on 1/11 from macmall, and it _still_ hasn't cleared backorder. They sent me a "the item you ordered will be delivered within 30 days" letter, and so I called my sales rep. He said it would be in somewhen in the middle of the month of February. Today is the middle of the month, and I checked the stats today and found no change. Perhaps next week... sigh.
post #191 of 241
Well, my 1/15 order will be 5 weeks on Tuesday, which was the longest they specified when I ordered. Still no sign of it shipping in my mailbox... At least I have my TiBook to keep me company, but damn, I'm getting sick of waiting...

At least I'm going to Vegas this weekend. That will take my mind off of it.

My brother works for Apple and he talked to someone and they told him an unprecedented number have been ordered. 75,000 have been shipped and 250,000 are waiting to be filled.

I ordered on the 7th and still havent gotten mine! I talked to apple phone support and they told me it would ship next tuesday the 19th.
post #193 of 241
I ordered mine from MacMall on January 8th and it's still not in. They've told me it would be in by the 31, and yesterday, and now they say this week. But I read a message on MacAddict who also brought from MacMall and they told him they have a month long backlog.

My brother received his iMac G4 Superdrive on Monday. What an amazing computer! The display is incredibly sharp and bright, and the iMac looks so much better than the one displayed at our local CompUSA, which was almost beige. It sure seems fast, and OSX absolutely flies! Too bad he only has dial-up internet, and a poxy, free digital camera that doesn't seem to work with the new iMac - his wife wants to keep the 4 year old PC set up so she can use the camera, and keep the iMac in its box in the basement. Go figure. I think they're just feeling weird and in shock for having such a nice computer, and they'll get over it.

Macintosh,
I ordered mine on the 7th about 1 hour after Stevenote and I finally got mine on the 13th. For some reason, mine didn't go through Alaska like everybody else's (it went through Rancho something or other CA).
Anyway, the point is, IT IS SO WORTH the long wait. Way better than the 3 month wait I had to endure for my PowerBook G3 (250 w/ DVD-ROM) way back in '98.
I think I'm going to watch the "Spinal Tap" DVD on it tonight.

I hope it ships on the 19th like I was told. I am sure it will be worth the wait, this was my christmas present! After all Christmas was the 25th this year, right?

I am starting to get excited but it seems so unreal at this point because of the long wait. No store where I live has any and I havent seen it on TV. I wouldnt even know the iMac existed if it wasnt for the internet and Time magazine. Ok, maybe I would know. You know what I mean...I think.
post #200 of 241
The day has arrived!! For some reason I decided to check my imac order status today and was amazed to find that my imac has finally shipped. I couldn't hardly believed it when I first saw it. Anyway, I don't understand why you haven't gotten yours yet Macintosh. We both ordered from the Education store and I ordered mine about 6 days after you. I'd hate to think that this would make it take longer but I'm really think that it may be you Applecare Plan. Crazy Stuff. Anyway, hope you get your soon and I'll post updates when my imac arrives.
Peace
