    I just searched and found Buy.com listing the mac/pc card for $194 and free shipping and more than likely no tax. It was showing 'shipping 1-2 days'!

    I searched for a coupon and found one for 5% off so I ended up ordering one for $185. Let's see how long it takes.

    If you are a NEW buy.com customer there are many better deals (like 10% and such). Just google buy.com coupon

    I'm interested in how well things turn out with Buy.com.
    Could you keep us posted?

    Thanks. :)

    According to FedEx it's on the truck for delivery on Monday.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that it IS what I ordered!

    Note I have not had any issues with buy.com since 2002 or so. I have only ordered about twice a year from them, this being my 1st time in 2008, so we'll see.

    Yup, unfortunately, mine is plagued with the noisy fan issue (fan runs full speed all the time). :( Can't really blame that on the store.. it was a sealed, prestine box.
