27" flavor? I ordered mine about the same time and just curious if the hold up is primarily due to the size or the upgrades?

Goes to show how apple values their dealer network. :) the trade off would've been another 12% premium vis online apple store in my part of the world.

Well hopefully mine gets to shipping soon. The website forecasts a delivery date in the first week of February but I'm still hopeful that it will get bumped up a little.

I have since taken to calling the dealer every 24 hours. :( I guess I'll try my luck next week.

Oh yeah I'm on my 7th week going on 8th.

I do not know why Apple charges a 24% premium for online shipping. It should be only 12% to cover Value Added Tax. :confused:

Is it to protect their lousy dealers?

Where I live most of the time the base 21.5" is P62,990 while the base 27" is P87,990. Value Added Tax is pegged at 12% and forex is P41.00 = US$1.00

If 12% VAT is applied to US SRP for the base 21.5" and base 27" the price would be $1,454.88 & $,2014.88 respectively.

Apple Store = P62,990; P87,990
Dealer = P59,650.08; P82,610.08

Call me cheap but I dont want to overpay a commodity.

I went with the dealer last December 6 as at the time the lead time of the iMacs was growing longer than the 4-6 weeks they promised. Now that it's on its 7th week I am starting to worry. I read online that the dealer has already sold non-BTO iMacs already but the person I spoke to on the phone denies this.
