Morning all. I have enjoyed reading the chatter on these forms for the past, almost, year and thought I would do like others have a post my ordering experience as it happens. Last night (Sunday the 23rd June) I ordered my first 'new' Mac. Mind you it will not be the first Mac I have used as I grew up at 5 years old starting on a Mac 2 CI that STILL WORKS JUST FINE! (DO that on a windows pc HA), thne power mac tower, then G3 iMac, then G3 tower, then Power Book TI 667. All used and well out of date by the time I had use of them. I broke the piggy bank after 5 years of dreaming and ordered a 24" 2.8 iMac 2GB 500GB nvidia512mb +Apple Care +Free iPod touch Educator Price/options. $27XX.xx CDN but the rebaid for 319 will come with the touch. I am very excited to get this brand new Mac and see what I can do! So 10 business days from now Apple order confirmation is saying I should have the iMac and iPod, so we will have to see. I will keep everyone posted if something comes earlier or later then expected. Shipping to Kingston Ontario Canada. Jack.
