    Care to share any thoughts/opinions of it?

    Also, I almost drive for 4 hours to get mine, but Madison, WI doesn't have them in stock at the moment. I'm waiting until next week I guess.

    Impressive! Congrats on your purchase. :apple:

    Sucks with gas prices these days and the time it took for you to get there and back. :(

    I've considered making a similar drive (Huntsville to Birmingham or Nashville) this weekend to get one.

    I actually saved about 70 dollars. About 30 went on gas. Paid less taxes and no shipping costs obviously.

    I called the madison, wi store today at 11 in the morning and they told me they had some. So i drove 45 minutes there to pick me one up and they were all gone. I was pissed. I heard they might have some more tomorrow, or at least by next week, so we will see. It sucks tough:(

    Got mine this morning in seattle. It is amazing. Worth a 4 hour drive in my opinion.

    I should do that...here in QC it's like 15% tax almost - completely ridiculious. but I gues I don't really have the time/desire to drive to say...Albany, NY (4 hrs) where they have an apple store.

    Hey man, at least you didn't drive 4 hours. ;)

    I'm not going to bother calling my local stores and try to race to them if they have stock. Probably by Sunday or Monday there will be a lot more inventory.

    give them a call to see if they have any left, they had "some" when i was there. Defiantly better than waiting for two weeks.
