|New iMacs (base models) showing 1-3 days to ship:|
Just noticed tonight that the US Apple store standard/base configurations of the new iMacs now show 1-3 business days to ship. (Was 3-4 weeks for 27in, 2-3 weeks for 21.5in models.) But any change from the base configurations (i.e. CPU, ram, drive or GPU) changes the shipping estimate to 2-3 weeks. Not sure how many of these base models they have in stock so dates may change by the time you read this. (I'd much rather have an optioned model though - 27in w/3.4GHz Core i7 and GT680MX 2GB options.)
(FYI/Update: As of Monday (3/4), ship times for base models were "Within 24 Hours".
As of Thursday (3/7), Customized CTO iMacs (CPU, GPU, Drives, etc) showed 5-7 days to ship.)
