post #41 of 241
Hmm. I'm not sure I buy it but I'd love to think it is true. As you said, consider the source. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

Man, I'm kinda glad you guys are in the same boat I'm in. I'm getting tired of seeing the same "Being Assembled". Anyway, I hope it ships soon so we can all play with our powerful new toys.

Fortunately, my order status says "partially shipped"

Considering the fact that I also ordered an iPod to go with my new iMac. hell, I got the iPod 3 days after I ordered my iMac. so now my iPod sits here on my desk next to my Rev A iMac (i waited forever to upgrade), awaiting the arrival of the new iMac =X

I am partially shipped as well, my three packs of DVD-Rs. I, however, did not order my new iMac until the 18th so I have a bit more waiting to do. As soon as you guys get yours though, I can experience the joy vicariously, so that will just have to tide me over until mine arrives!

In case you aren't on the Apple iMac email list... from today's email:

"Expected to ship next week and in stores for you to see right now, the new iMac with SuperDrive costs just $1799. "

So it looks like next week at the earliest...

sorry

Hi there!

I just had this Email from my Apple Centre here in the UK:-

"I've contacted Apple about when we should be receiving your iMac. iMac 800's are due to start shipping next week, so we should be receiving a delivery the first week in February."

Hopefully it will be before the first week in Feb as I can't wait that long!!!

He has a PowerBook too and got a software tour at Apple HQ. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" /> Apple really pounced on this guy, but I'm glad they gave the best possible spin. Oh I want my iMac so bad.

Given today's announcement, I just wanted to bring this thread back to the top. Post here when your iMac ships.

Thanks Duals. My iMac has not shipped yet for some reason, the Apple order status page says still being assembled. I have no idea why. I will call Apple if it doesnt change by the end of the day (Apple being my brother who works for Apple).
post #52 of 241
I got some bad news. At least for me and some of you guys. I called Apple to check my iMacs status and they said that I probably won't get mine for another week or two. I ordered mine on the 13th, but I'm guessing it probably takes a while to ship 150,000 computers and mine is probably number 100,000. Oh well, shame on me for getting my hopes up again.

Still being assembled.

I ordered 3 hours after the keynote.

I ordered mine on 1/7 and still being assembled. I called Apple customer support today and was told that since I upgraded the ram to 512 it was a custom configuration and should ship this Friday or Monday.
post #57 of 241
Well, I ordered on the 22nd (d'oh!), with one 512 DIMM (double d'oh!). I'll be lucky if mine ships before the middle of February. But I will be damned happy when it does.

I am still blinking the sleep outta my eyes, but I don't actually need a shot of caffeine to feel awake....why...? My iMac has SHIPPED, of course! ordered 1/7, standard config, apple edu store. GOREY details perhaps, but I know some want to know.

I'm going to have to leave the house now to avoid clicking repeatedly on the Fed Ex tracking button. &lt;click&gt; &lt;click&gt; &lt;blink&gt; &lt;click&gt; ad infinitum.
post #61 of 241
I talked to Apple last night, and they told me that since I got an airport card in mine it wouldn't ship until the second week in February, even though I ordered it hours after the keynote. If I had known, I wouldn't have gotten the card- they're a snap to install yourself, and I'm opening it up anyway to put in the 512 MB SODIMM I have waiting for it. I'm so impatient I'm ready to cancel my order and just find one in a store... GRRRRRRRR!!!!!!
post #62 of 241
Guess what guys, you'll never believe it, my imac...........didn't ship.........again.

I don't understand, we all love Apple, yet what do they give us in return? They give us torment after purchasing an 1800 dollar piece of equipment from them. I'm sure its not their fault (at least I hope), but still I'm going nuts over here. I don't want to get disowned here, but I have even found my self........using Apples name in vain.

If mine doen't ship by tomorrow I won't be able to get it this week, which means I'll have to wait through another weekend. I think you guys know how bad the weekends are, because we know our imacs won't be shipping then.

Oh, well, I'm just venting, sorry to make you guys listen to it. My girlfriend makes me listen to her complaints and I hate it.

P.S. Did anyones imac get shipped last night?
post #63 of 241
still backordered at macmall.

*sighs*

Of course they are backordered because they have to A) get them in, and B) install the other 256 MB of RAM.

So I wait and wait. Those who ordered through the Apple store don't have it THAT bad.

Guys, don't resent those of us whose orders have shipped... I mean they sat in a warehouse in Taiwan for 24 hours for one thing.... Those lofty iMacs now seem to be on their Asian-Pacific tour, and no where near the US yet. Lord knows how long they'll get bogged down in Customs.

Just to let you chaps know that those who are shipping can still feel your pain. as we happen to be in it still ourselves.

No freakin iMac for me today!

****.
post #67 of 241
I ordered mine on the 7th and it was shipped out yesterday from Taiwan. And today I checked the status again, and it seems that now it's in Japan. I wonder when it will actually get to US. And what surprised me is that what it's doing in Japan, and why did it take one whole day to ship from Taiwan to Japan, since those countries are so close to each other. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">
post #68 of 241
Customs! (he said).
Listen, I ordered a short (20 inch) firewire cable from Apple 3 weeks ago. They emailed me that it wasn't in stock and it would be another 5 days or so before it would go out. At that point they offered to cancel the order. I did not. It was sent FedEx ground on the 22nd. It arrived in Florida on the 26th. It spent a leisurely time of 5 days in the state getting to me today (the 30th). By the way, Apple did not charge for shipping.

The way I read the tracking page, momo, is that Apple got the iMacs to the shipper too late for them to fly out of Taiwan till the next day (today) and that now they are finally actually in transit, via Japan. But, I don't think they are stuck in Japan.

Just my read, you may have another take.

As they say in South Carolina, Mazel Tov. But remember, anticipation can sometimes be better then actually getting the iMac. (Sounds like a bit of jealousy to me).

how do you say Mazel Tov with a southern accent??

i actually do have a small degree of dread along with a large degree of joy....must transfer many files...must learn Os X and then decide if i boot in 9 or X, do i use X exclusively? i have to download many patchs probably (Toast, games)...i and the kids use Quark for all our papers and such....do i run under X or boot in 9...etc etc...


Murbot sez: Damn you! Looks like you're going to be the first here with a new toy

yep....must be that SJ likes me, or i'm his b!tch...

The new iMacs are in at the Apple Clarendon (Virginia) store. A shipment of 7-8 iMacs arrived today and the lucky winners were notified to come pick them up. Unfortunately I'm around number 25 of 100 on their list, so I'll have to wait a day or two more they said. Initially they expected around 100 iMacs to arrive today, but with demand so great and shipping problems, Apple Clarendons cut of the first lot was reduced. Oh well. One more day won't kill me - I think.
