When will your Core Duo 2 iMac be delivered?

post #1 of 132
Thread Starter 
I have just ordered my 24" iMac Can't wait, gonna be me first mac, and first decent computer (did have 2 good pc's before but had to send them back due to probs)

My iMac is estimated to be shipped on the 21st and arrive on 28th. Got a while to wait if this is true.

Through experience are these dates optomistic, accurate or should i prepare myself for a delivery later than 28th?

Will be great if everyone else can post their shipping and delivery dates, and progress.

I have heard that people in the US are being told they will get theirs delivered at start of next week (maybe even this friday). I am in UK so think that is why it is going to take a while.

Will get a 2GB nano for about £20 and free printer worth £60 though, through student and back-to-school offers.

Hmmmmm

I just placed my order for my 24" less than 1 hour ago.

Part Number: Z0DD
\tProduct Name: iMac, 24-inch, Intel Core 2 Duo
\tOptions:
\t 065-6792 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
\t 065-6780 3GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 1x2GB, 1x1GB
\t 065-6801 NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB SDRAM
\t 065-6447 500GB Serial ATA Drive
\t 065-6439 SuperDrive 8X (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
\t 065-6200 None
\t 065-6433 Apple Keyboard & Mighty Mouse + Mac OS X (US English)
\t 065-6432 Accessory kit


Estimated Ship Date: September 18th
Estimated Arrival Date: September 21st

I paid the $33 extra for 2-3 day express.

Dropping 4,000 big ones on a new computer was something I thought I would never do again (via the very old days of 90 Mhz PC's). Somehow, I did this and loved it. Getting a Mac Pro was tempting and actually delayed my purcahse for 24 hours but the "less clutter" aspect won out yet again. I will probably get Leopard Server for my iMac G5. I need to find out what cool things can happen with having a server.

It says it is due to ship on the 18th and arrive on the 21st. I paid the $33 extra for 2-3 express.

In the Uk we have no choice with delivery options, it is the standard delivery only 7-10 business days!

Yeah, I sprung the extra $33 bucks for quick shipping. I figured it would be a nice birthday gift to myself.

Nice pickup. Sometimes it feels that way.

I have never had a computer from the apple store come on the date they day, it has always been early. Sometimes over a week early .

Also, for computers they don't update the status until the next morning. (My experience at least).

I'm hoping (doubt it will happen, especially with my luck) that it arrives before the 19th even though it is "due" on the 28th as i am going back to uni on the 19th. Would actually be cool if it came while loading up the van, as long as it comes before i leave lol.

Yeah, and how much did you save, $100 or so? Man, hopefully you're right and they get it out to you before November.

i'd be surprised to see many places other than apple stores have these in a hurry.

apple has a history of keeping their products for their own retail stores when demand is high.

I ordered an imac before the update and I recieved an email that the delivery would be delayed due to ?. Another email came telling me of the new imacs and my FREE upgrade. Mine is shipping out on the 14th and will be here on the 16th.

Damn, that looks fully pimped out! I've pissed and moaned about Apple not putting conroe in iMac, but I've got to admit the 24" looks tempting. Let us know if it meets you expectations.

Believe me, I will! I am waiting on my UB Final Cut Studio Disc's to arrive. It was a hard choice to go with the 24" over a Mac Pro 3 GHz. But the clutter factor wins out in my old age.

I will report back.

I ordered my "Big Mac" on 9-6, the day the new iMac line was introduced! My upgrades are underlined. I'm so hoping it ships "early," as I am beside myself with excitement and in this case my patience is not holding up very well

My 24th birthday is on the 24th of September. Unfortunately I only have $24 so there will be no 24" inch iMac. I can't even buy a season of 24.

Mine was due to ship on the 20th Sept, but it shipped today (9th), should be with me by the 20th!

Really? Did you have any upgrade options on it?

Yes it is a BTO iMac.
I have added the extra 1GB, making 2GB in total, that is the only change though.

Seems they are over estimating so that they don't disappoint buyers.

Yeah, I hope that's the case. I want my new iMac!
post #32 of 132
It could also be that they had built a number of 2GB models in the expectation that it would be a pretty frequently ordered model, hence it was in stock and ready to ship.

I should call you a name right now because yours is shipping early.

I just checked mine out and it seems it won't ship until the 18th. You think dropping that kind of cash on a system Apple would bump us to the front.

I wonder if the fact that almost everyone is ordering the 24" iMac with the 7600GT will lead Apple to offer it as a standard configuration?
