Thanks for that mate! Yeah, I've looked around rather a lot and I think this'll be a good community for me.

Hello forum,
I'm returning to the Mac side. I have been gone since about 2009.

Ordered the wife a 13" Mac book Air, 8 gig ram and 256 ssd. Ordered myself a 27" iMac with 5K Retina display, i7 processor, 16 gigs ram, 4 gigs of video.

Ordered them both on Saturday 2-28 and Apple says they won't arrive until 3-12 or 3-13. It's going to be a long 2 weeks. I am really looking forward to getting all of my things transferred from our 2 PCs to our 2 new Macs and getting adjusted.

I'm sure I'll have questions once the new machines arrive, so until then.

Jeff

Welcome Jeff! New here myself, as you see above. Also did a switch from PC to Mac of course (though it sounds like you had Macs before?). Really can't imagine why I didn't do this long ago, it's been an awesome experience so far. Just a better...atmosphere? Or something?

Welcome to Mac-Forums Jeff!

Were both of those computers you ordered stock configurations…or did you customize them? If stock configs….I'm surprised you were told 2 weeks for delivery. If they were stock configs…I would not be surprised if you get them sooner. Sometimes Apple "overstates" things…and you get then sooner.

On the other hand. If these were custom config's…then that may explain the 2 weeks.

Thanks for the welcomes Mencelus and Nick.

They were both custom configs, although I sure hope they don't take the full 2 weeks.
I bumped the MBa up to 8 gigs and iMac got bumped up to i7 processor, 16 gigs of ram and the 4 gb video card.

Apple usually sends you a shipping notification when stuff ships. Most stuff is made/assembled in Asia/China…and ships FedEx. Stuff can get here in 2 days & less sometimes. So once you get the shipping notification…stuff will arrive at your door pretty fast.
