    Mac Mini 2ghz
    4gig Ram

    Just placed the order like a minute ago. Chose the 'free shipping'.. lets see how long Amazon takes to ship it. They are saying July 13th; but i'm hoping its sooner :)

    I bought my Mac Mini on Amazon.com and chose free shipping, it took 1 week and a half for it to be delivered to me.

    ahh.. I went with Amazon to save on the sales tax.. Otherwise it would have been a cool 8.75% on top of $600 :(

    I bought mine from Apple BTO 2.23GHz 2GB RAM (I like my RAM covered by warranty, TYVM) and had it within a week of ordering it. Shipping was free, and although tax wasn't, the student discount effectively canceled it out.
    Amazon's Super Saver Shipping on average takes anywhere from a week to ten business days for me. Just got a year's subscription to MobileMe with free shipping and it arrived in 8 days.

    super saver shipping is the slowest they offer. It's not only slow shipping, they take their time to get it ready to ship too. Easily a week and a half from order to receive.

    My girlfriends mini was like 800$ CDN at the local best buy. Being Canadian sucks some times. Oh well, at least we have free health care. :p

    From my understanding - super saver utilized pack mules. :rolleyes:

    I've always been impressed with Apple's shipping - I always pick ground and it arrives within 2-3 business days.

    But the no tax with Amazon is very appealing! :D

    I got mines today, but I still have to wait on my keyboard & mouse (I had my dad ship them instead of paying $100). I wish I could use my MacBooks keyboard & trackpad for the time being.
