I ordered mine the 5th of Febuary, I'll probably see mine getting shipped in 3-5 weeks. I'm a patient guy though. I just hope it arrives before I go on vacation!

I made the mistake of buying mine from MacMall on Jan 8th and it's not here yet. MacMall's only got 70 units so far and they have bout 2000 backorders. The only good thing is that I'm high up in the orders. If Apple would only get some stock to them I'd get my computer.

i ordered mine jan 22nd and got it feb 9th. i think it shipped faster because i was eligible to order thru the less-used federal employee store at apple. (or maybe it's higher priority?--hahaha!) and i got the base configuration cuz i figured it wouldnt take as long.

i dunno, dont beat yourself up, nobody can understand the shipping schedule....

Well, the day has finally arrived. My iMac is on the fedex truck on the way to my house. I'm so excited. I have class at 3:30 so knowing my luck the guy will deliver it at like 3:15. Anyway, I ordered mine on the 13th and I guess got mine on the 19th. Thats 37 days which isn't as bad as some people's wait time. I'm not exactly sure if Apple has a meaness to this shipping madness, but maybe we'll never know.
I'll post pics when I get it out of the box.
Peace

well, its finally here. I've wasted most of the day partitioning, reinstalling, and copying, but I think I've finally got it how I like it. It is a lot bigger that I thought (having never seen one in person before now). I love it. The screen is beautiful. I had only one dead pixel. A green one. I don't really notice it unless the screen is black. Anyway, I haven't crashed it yet and since I'm done with installing I think I'm home free. I hope

Does it come with a OSX and OS9 partition or do they put it all on one partition. If they put it on one. I'll be doing the same thing.

yeah, the imac comes on one partition and I think for most people it should stay that way. It was a pain trying to get it partitioned and everything reinstalled. I think it would be ok either way.

Anybody order the low end iMac yet? Any ideas when it will be shipping and if they have a very long backlog like the high end one.
post #215 of 241
And then there were two.
I ordered mine on January 8th from Macwarehouse, which moved its ship date four times, the last time to the 21st of February. So I also put my name on the Apple store list. On February 18, the Apple store called me with one in stock. I got it.

I immediately called MacWarehouse and cancelled my order. The next morning, I awoke to the e-mail announcing that MacWarehouse had shipped my Imac.

Oh, well.

This is my first contribution to the AI forums on the G4 iMac. I got ' hooked' on AI since the 'Apple hype MWSF' . Brilliant thread of &gt;1000posts!! My input for other Dutch members (like myself): I ordered iMac G4/800 with 512 mb (two sticks) on 26/1 from the Dutch online Apple Store. My order turned to 'shipped' yesterday (19/02). It seems that the flight to Europe has been delayed, but still an ETA for 25/02. For Dutch customers, Apple delivers on time.

post #224 of 241
I ordered mine on 7th Jan and got it on 4th Feb... Since it's nearly March you're probably wondering why I'm bothering to share this information, but you know, when you fall in love... friends, family and even pets must temporarily say goodbye to you so that you can become happily aquainted with your new Paramour. Anyway, here's the photos of my new love:

Those were some sweet pics Evan. It seems the 17 incher beside the iMac is almost the same physical size as the LCD. Is that really so? I'm considering getting an iMac, but I'm a bit concerned I'll be downgrading from my 17" ASD in terms of actual viewing area. Same resolution = OK, though.

Glad you enjoyed my pics, Pegges! Yes, the actual viewable area of the two is almost identical... I knew that theoretically, but it's nice to confirm it, with the two side by side. For various reasons, marketing and just the state of the technology of the time, the 17" CRT monitors actually measure shy of 16" in real life. Plus, the iMac's flat panel is very crisp, and very bright, and completely non-fatiguing. I don't miss my old CRT and Tower system at all. Anyway, if you do get a new iMac, I think you have no need to be concerned, it really is an all-around great machine.

I got the following email from what seems to be the apple store... a little bizarre considering I've had my iMac for almost a month now. Anybody else get something like this?

[quote] Hi!

I attempted to contact you today regarding your interest in the new
iMac. I have been selected to be your representative at the Apple Store,
and I was calling to offer you assistance in ordering this product.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have
about any of the products available at the Apple Store. I can place your
order for you, and I usually have access to promotions that you can't
get anywhere else.

Something is going on now... First DirkS gets his iMac to Holland pretty fast (Ordered 26/01 shipped 19/02) and now my order shows as 'shipped' also. I ordered 04/02 from the Finnish Apple Store and was told that production would take 40 working days.

Could it be that clearing the backlog of the superdrive model is the reason for the combo/cdrw delay to April?? The Finnish online Apple Store now shows the superdrive as 'New orders Shipping Now' while the other models have a estimated shipping time of 7-9 weeks.

Ordered an iMac 800 from MacMall on 15 Feb. I didn't know the wait was going to be so tough.
Tick Tock Tick Tock!!! I hope it arrives by April.

I have supported Microsoft Windows from version 1.0 to XP, MS-DOS 2.0-6.22, Netware 3.11-4.x, SunOS, SGI Irix, Linux, HP Unix, Cisco IOS and Mac OS 7-8.x for a few years and decided the Unix based OS X 10.1 was the right time to move.

I also found that the equivelant Dell, IBM, and Compaq to be more expensive than Apple. The Dell and Compaq still have a big CPU and the IBM Netvista is overpriced.

I am eating my words from years back and buying my first Apple computer.

My iMac finally came today and it is well worth the wait. It really is a great machine! I bought it from MacMall on Jan 8th. I hope everybody else gets theirs soon.

I ordered it from the Apple store, just a regular purchase, not business or education. I've noticed that iMacs are shipping more frequently now. What was surprising to me, was that it went from being Assembled right to shipping. There wasn't a prep stage that it showed

Hey...I bet that means good things. The prep stage may have had something to do with the radiation. Looks like they're getting their act together.
