    I ordered yesterday with a frineds and family discount of 15% To do that, it has to be shipped, although an Apple Store is only 10 minutes from me.

    I have to wait 2 more days. I'm close to cutting pieces of paper out in the right size as a mockup....

    What did everyone do while waiting for shipping?

    Checked FedEx tracker all the time even though I knew that wasnt going to make it come any faster.

    On the estimated delivery day, I stayed cooped up in my house until it was delivered.

    Then ended staying home anyways because I was playing with my new obsession. haha

    ;-)

    Actually, mine arrive the day before scheduled. But I spent my time searching forums for tips and tricks on the new toy.

    My education discount would have removed 100 dollars. Friends and family removed 240 dollars, but I had to wait.

    I ordered more memory before I ordered the computer. Pathetic.

    And the incessant refreshing of fedex is killing me. I'm glad it's FedEx though, UPS tends to rough up the packages a little more.

    Mine still says its departed Lewisberry, PA.

    I stood at the counter for 12 seconds until the employee shipped it into my hands! :D

    One thing I did while my macbook was shipping is cleaning my room, but mostly my desk. I wanted my macbook to come in a clean home :)

    I ordered it, worked the rest of the day (distraction enough), went home, ate, slept, went back to work the next day and it was there for me 2 hours later.

    $20 for overnight shipping was so worth it for the near immediate gratification.
