    Shipping can be a fickle thing....its possible FedEx is just backed up. I know its tough, but the best advice is to attempt to put it out of your mind.


    You could get a nice tech project going...if this Mac is replacing an old one, find a cool alternative usage for the old one. Or go through the App Store looking for cool new Apps for your new computer. Or do some cleaning so any files you need to bring over are key and don't waste space.

    Hey?

    3 Business days for delivery right? It says ship date 7th, delivery date 12th.

    7th is Thursday so Friday, Monday with delivery on Tuesday is only 2 business days.

    I can't see the problem...

    Ahh, so the want is even greater! I get it. Your laptop is a beast, so I am assuming you're computer is now going to take place fully on this laptop? Or is your desktop still going to be used daily?

    If its the first one now if a sweet time to get your old PC files ready to move over to OS X(or your XP side)

    If its the 2nd one
    You can reformat any external HDD for OS X and Windows if they are in a Windows only format now.

    Either one
    You can install Linux distros, play around with other distro..Chrome OS, Ubuntu? Solaris? All free OSes and can help you both with keeping up to date with what is out there for traditional PCs as well as give your environments to help learn their usage and if you run into trouble with OS X, sometimes Linux can help solve it.

    Or you know, any hobby that keeps you busy.(also Apple keeps the App Store online too, so you can check out the apps there, and set up a list to download for yourself)

    thanks bro, ill definately start on that list lol..
    yup the laptop i have now triple boots fedora 14, ubuntu 10.1 and win 7...but im just not happy that i cant have mac lol so i will be putting win 7 and ubuntu on the mac...win 7 in bootcamp and ubuntu on a VM...

    ..but one question though..

    what exactly do you mean by changing the format of my external HDD to mac?

    i do have an external iOmega 500gb hd with like 30gb of files that im hoping to move to my MBP...

    I get so annoyed seeing stuff like this. The 7th is a sunday so it does not count LOL. Saturday the 9th and sunday the 10th are WEEKENDS so they dont count towards your business days either. You may need to rethink your 'its been 7 days' comment.

    For future reference here is an idea of how it may work for your order

    Order Sunday and give 1-3 days to build
    Monday processed
    Late Tuesday start build
    Wednesday boxed and ready to ship
    Thursday picked up by shipping service

    If you paid to Ship thursday with next day get it friday
    If you paid to ship thursday with 2 day get it monday
    If you selected standard shipping it ships thursday with 3 day and you get it Tuesday**THIS IS YOU**

    So in this case you are right on the money. I can appreciate being excited to get your computer but you do have to be realistic in what you think a business day is and how they work

    You get mail on Saturday? Weird.

    Saturday/Sunday are not business days. They don't count in the calculation of shipping days.

    USPS delivers on Saturday's thats why you get mail but other carriers do not unless it is specifically paid for.

    Tomorrow is the big day!

    No, posties in Australia don't work on the weekend, never have and if they tried to make them there'd be a revolt.
