    New PowerBook
    Woooo hoooooo...I was about ready to throw up.
    I ordered it on the 3rd. Almost like a roller coaster ride.
    But it won't be over until I verify that it works and has no damage or dead pixels. The old Heinz commercial...oooo anticipation :)

    Me too!

    Hey! I just bought my first mac 3 weeks ago, a 15" decked out powerbook. It was BTO and came from Shanghai, then Anchorage, then Indianapolis, then Portland, then Seattle, then Kent and then my house!! I couldn't stop watching the tracking info. But, I was nervous since I was spending a lot of money ($2200) and didn't want a machine that would disappoint me. Well, it's turned out to be way better than I thought it would be after using Windows for over 11 years. Thanks Apple! Enjoy the wait.

    Congratulations to all of you. Powerbooks are great - I love mine. I'm waiting for my copy of Office 2004 to get here - ok, so it's not quite as exciting, but this is a I'm waiting for my new ______ to arrive thread, isn't it? Anyway, I wish y'all patience in "the waiting game."

    I ordered a 15" powerbook on the 15th, shipped on the 17th...when I check my order status it says it was shipped but not from where, how do I get a more detailed order tracking status?

    While I was waiting for the dealer to ring me up there was a lady who wanted to buy Norton Anti virus for her PC. Then she ask me Wow are you buying a computer, and I said yes. Then she said oh it's an Apple....I hate Apple...I will never buy one...I just told her if you had an Apple you wouldn't need to get Norton Antivirus....She then just looks away

    Got it!

    I am impressed...nothing short. My boss is jealous and the internet engineer is a UNIX guy so he wants to play. I also bought the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and they work great...no complaints.

    If anyone here is thinking of getting a Powerbook...get one, you won't be sorry.

    Waaa hooooo!
