    Ive ordered from macmall several times and have never had a problem. Ive always received an email within 15 minutes of my order, try calling them Tuesday since they will problem be closed tomorrow due to the holiday. I can assure you that you didnt get ripped.

    Yea, they're legit. Just be patient, it's a big company, they won't respond to you lightning fast. I have heard many people order things from that site. So it's legit alright.

    It's completely legit. I've seen people with their Macs. They talk only good things about them.

    They are legit, but many, many MR members have reported problems with them. Not the greatest online retailer, but certainly not some sort of scam operation.

    If you never got an email maybe the order didn't go through? Anyhow they are definitely legit I have bought many things from them and had great service. in fact I just bought a Time Capsule last week and paid for ground shipping, they sent it 2 Day the very day I ordered it.

    I even had a rebate from them that I didn't know about and the guy called me (I guess my "account rep") and reminded me to send it in.

    Wow. Todays a holiday? I'd never guess judging by the speech quiz, 20 comp note cards, chemistry quantum numbers homework, chorale sectionals, and photosynthesis and metabolism biology test I have for today.

    If delivery is through Fedex home delivery service, remember that it does not deliver to residential addresses on Mondays.

    Why is columbus day a federal holiday again?

    Why is columbus still honored for something he was some 100 years late doing?

    I'd explain it to you but then we'd have to move this thread to the politics forum....

    Theyre legit, just wait for them to get it must be a busted server or maybe busy filling out forms for the faulty macbook pros, or negotiating with apple for the new laptops, who knows.

    I bought the 2G touch from Macmall for $379 with a free USB charger. no sales tax. very fast delivery, great company. I also bought my 5G ipod classic from them 2 years ago. They seem to have good relationship with Apple because they have very good price and always have the new ipods available immediately while other vendors like Amazon usually don't have them right away.
