    my parents have received today the iMac i ordered a while ago for me. i did it this way cause i'm living far from home and will leave this city this month. however, i'm flying to mexico on june 20th to visit a very friend of mine for about 3 weeks and i will come back home on july 12th. so my imac will be 4 weeks inside of its box!! it's driving me nuts cause it's my first mac and i'm dying to make the switch.
    i think i could bear it as i'm having fun in my trip. could you bear it??

    No. I remember when my first Mac got delivered I had to leave immediately afterwards for an appointment. That hour nearly killed me. :eek:

    Personally, I wouldn't be able to bear it because the first thing I do whenever I get a new Mac is inspect every freakin' milimeter of the thing to make sure It's absolutely perfect.

    Hmm.. I would be inclined to set it up and test it at least - or have someone do it for you, because if there is anything wrong you will be outside the DOA period by the time you get back.

    My G5 tower finally arrived (after nearly a month of waiting--supplies were short back then) literally the day after I left for a weekend business trip to Alaska. Man, that was frustrating.

    Even were it a vacation, I'm not sure if I could handle 3 weeks with a new Mac in a box. Just couldn't properly enjoy myself.

    When I made the switch, I took the day off from class when I saw my computer was set to be delivered that day..

    I took the day off for the arrival of my mbp as well.

    Wow, you must be going through some serious pain right now nukiduz, I know that the several week wait for my first Mac (Power Mac G5) almost killed me. ;) :)

    I really hope that a computer (a material possession) will not interfere with you have fun on your vacation. But if it does you could always call off the trip.

    Man. I kind of feel your pain. I'm waiting to receive my powerbook I just bought off someone and I'm hoping it'll be here friday, but friday is SOOO LONG from today. It'll be my first mac and i'm really excited to get it. I hope you enjoy yours too!

    Why don't you just ship it to me, I'll use it. This way you'll know it's not sitting in the box :p

    Especially when he's ready out of the box. :D

    But to the OP: I somehow know how you feel, my MacBook got delivered while I was away for the day, and my iMac was with me for 6 hours before it turned out to be lemon, had to go away and then the replacement unit waited over the weekend in the post office only a mile away because the store it was sent out from didn't supply me with a tracker code.

    But don't you worry, it's going to be worth the wait! :)

    What are you talking about? Setting up a new Mac IS a form of vacation, as far as I'm concerned. I certainly have as much fun goofing with new technology as I do with several other kinds of traditional recreation, that's to be sure.

    Sometimes I put my MBP back into the box just so I can open it again.. :)

    LOL. I used to do that with my 500MHz iBook (it was used). I remember when it came. I was in school and COULDN'T wait to get home. Then I saw the box with the picture of the lady in the blue jacket holding it close to her, and felt like screaming. *Why did it get stolen????We had a happy 4 months....*
