    What's the going rate on a 1yr dot mac? Amazon's sold out at 70. Best price I've seen is 78.

    Anyone selling for less? Or know some place that is.

    I saw a place on eBay selling for $69 and then $7 for shipping, search for dot mac and it was at the bottom under the auction listings. I was hoping to save the $7 shipping and have the email the activation code, they won't do it.

    Now this looks like a good place to pick it up; now all I need to figure out is if it's what I really need.

    Have you purchased from this store before? I'd love to jump on this, but the price seems too good to be true.

    I gave it a shot. They have a pretty good rating on ResellerRatings.

    Best I've seen. I just picked one up for $62 on ebay and had them email me the code. I was pretty happy with that price.

    Would it be possible for you to post some feedback in this thread once you have received the item? I'm interested in purchasing but am a bit skeptical.

    Please let us know of your experience - thanks.

    Something weird about that place. The icon that shows up in the address bar next to the URL is Yahoo's "Y!"

    Nope, I've never used them before.

    Just means they use Yahoo's merchant platform.

    Oh okay. Thanks for the tip. Great price for the .Mac. I may jump on that myself.

    I just completed my purchase from there, hopefully it's legitamate, but it definitely seems to be.

    I'll post an update when it's received.

    If I buy the Family pack and use only install on 2 computers, can I offer the remaining licenses to others? I want to stay legal.

    As long as those others live at the same address. Otherwise, no.

    Where do you see that? I looked at the terms of service and all over the support site and couldn't find any rules about every member of a Family pack having to live in the same place.

    I can't find it either, but I know that I've read it in my family packs for .mac, iLife, Tiger, Leopard, Panther, and iWork. It doesn't have to be the same address per sé (ie a child away at college), but there wouldn't be a point to it. There's one admin account and all of the others have limited functionality.

    Mine got canceled too, but they didn't even have the courtesy to e-mail me and tell me that they canceled it.

    placed my order on Saturday, no status listed on their website.

    //EDIT: Mine shipped. Guess I got in before the rush.

    Interesting.

    They do have about 200 copies of the Family Pack, so says the guy who emailed me about the cancellation. Even at $80, it's cheaper than I can find the single .Mac for.

    Mine was cancelled as well.

    ETA: Interesting that they DO have them for $79.99, though. Wonder if all the interest made them cancel the orders and raise the price.

    probably...I was going to order from them this weekend.

    I might purchase version 4.0.
    Of course version 4.0 only has 2gb of online storage, but once it switches to .me won't everyone get 20gb anyway? Does anyone know?

    All accounts are the same. It doesn't matter which box you buy, you'll always get the current version.

    wish I'd known that :( ...well, anyway I just picked up version 5.0 on ebay for $69. The seller has another one, but for some reason I don't know if im allowed to post the link on MR so I wont get myself in trouble-im pretty sure you can find it if you search unless its been purchased already. Also, techforless.com has it for $65+shipping. (about $73 shipped).
