    Sorry folks. Couldn't help it. I just had to tell someone. And, it's a day early too!!! Six days to get from Suzhou, China and 9 days after I ordered it isn't bad at all.

    Congratulations.

    Savor every moment opening it up. The smell, the packaging. It only happens once. ;)

    I just don't wanna know.

    The place I ordered mine from said a three week wait from order to delivery which is long enough but from past experience they use a metric week. :(

    Nah seriously, I'm happy for you. But what are the specs?

    Congratulations.

    You've chosen a solid little workhorse that should give you lots of hours of careless computing for years to come... :)

    I hope so. I've lugged my 400 Mhz TiBook around a long time. It's just not built "for the road" though. I hope this one can stand up to the task. Can't wait to find out!!!

    Congratulations... Now the fun stuff... Accessories! ;)

    Sleeve or Bag? A stick of 1G RAM, and AppleCare (you could wait a year)?

    Enjoy!

    BTW, is Tiger preinstalled on her or is Apple giving you a disc?

    I use a backpack, so its a MacCase sleeve with a zipper. It looks like a binder.

    Definitely a 1G stick of RAM when the $$ permits.

    AppleCare for sure soon.

    Apple is giving me the disc for Tiger. I prefer that I think.

    it's not that i live in canada either - all the other stuff i ordered from the apple store came to my door in about 10 days from ordering - an icurve, an apple mouse, and applecare.
