It looks like Apple is doing its best to push the new 27-inch iMacs out the door. The current ship estimate is in January, but for those who put their orders in right when the product launched will see their devices a bit sooner than that. At least one person should be seeing their new iMac on December 13, as long as FedEx doesn't miss the delivery.

9to5mac is reporting that their readers have received shipping notifications for their new iMacs. The estimated delivery date quoted by Apple ranged from December 18 all the way to the end of the month, but now some will be receiving theirs as early as December 13.

The 27-inch iMac shipments all appear to be originating in Shanghai, China, as opposed to some of the 21.5-inch models that have originated from Fremont, indicating that Apple either hasn't had time to build stock of the machine in the US for shipment, or the 21.5-inch iMac is being produced in the US.
