    My mac pro is "On FedEx vehicle for delivery"!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have never geeked out over a computer purchase before, but I'm getting a little excited this time. Not sure how much longer I can wait and it's only 8am where I'm at. Argh!!

    ^^ Agreed. I'd love to see some pics of the setup. Oh, and don't worry, I've had a few Macs in my day, if I had a Mac Pro "on FedEx truck for delivery" I'd be sh**ting frisbees too. :D

    I feel your pain! I just got my first iMac that I ordered and the pain of waiting killed me, I even took a day off of work and waited for the Fedex guy. And he did not show up until 3:00 in the afternoon, wasted a whole day at home and still did not get it until late in the afternoon. But, it is up and running and I can not be more happier.

    I'm reminded of an old saying, something like this: There is no greater pleasure than pleasure delayed. Enjoy

    I'm especially anxious because I've missed several deliveries this week. I ordered FCE with my Mac Pro and it shipped separately, actually showed up in town on Wednesday, the FedEx guy never came, no notice on door, nothing. We have a large picture window in our front room and I spent the WHOLE DAY in there. Nothing came, ever, but the driver reported I wasn't home. That used up one delivery attempt. Yesterday, he came and left during the 30-40 seconds I was in the bathroom! I was so upset.

    So today, both are expected to get here, and I'm not going to the bathroom until they do! :eek:

    I would call FedEx and raise sand for the first one. This is why I always have stuff shipped to my work. :D

    My complaint about the non-delivery attempt the other day must have reached someone, because the DRIVER just called me to verify I was home. He'll be here in 10 minutes with my Mac Pro! My copy of FCE is coming on another FedEx truck, since my computer's coming FedEx Ground and my software is coming FedEx Home Delivery.

    Pictures to follow soon, posted from my new Mac. :) Still not sure what order to do everything I want to do in -- I think I'll go pee now since I've been holding it in. ;)

    I felt your pain last month! I watched my MBP go from Shanghai, to Anchorage, to Indianapolis, to Oakland, to Modesto, to my HOUSE!!! I swear to God that I creeped the delivery guy out because I nearly tackled the box from him. Then I ran into my house like a little gremlin returning to their cave with TREASURE!!! Muahahahaha.. treasure!


    I'm still feeling the same way though... I heart my MBP.

    Ahhh! Don't miss it! He could come at any minute. Don't you dare pee!


    I just think it would be funny if you looked crazier than me because you peed yourself waiting for your laptop. :D :p

    Our local cable company did that. We had our door open all day airing the place out, and the repairman had the audacity to say we weren't home (there were 8 of us there that day), and that he put a note on the door (he didn't, obviously; he either didn't come period or went to the wrong place). They then told us it would be two weeks before they could get someone to come back to fix their mistake. I asked to speak to a supervisor, and got someone back there that evening.

    Back on the subject at hand, Apple gives you the option to print out a delivery waiver. You sign it and put it on your door, and FedEx can leave said package.

    So, one last thought before it gets here. Taking a day off work, not peeing for over six hours, hitting reload on the FedEx tracking page every two minutes --- am I a fanboy now?

    Close.. when you take the laptop with you to the bathroom in order to still post, THEN you are a fanboy.

    I think he did. I would guess unboxing is underway.
