    Well I finally was able to get my first Mac. A new 24in iMac 2.4ghz, 2gb of RAM, etc. I got it about 3-4 weeks ago, I think 4 weeks on the Oct. 4, but anyways it has been the best computer I've owned. Movie editing a breeze. Photos couldn't get easier. Windows works pretty well but I only play Counter-Strike: Source for about an hour then switch back ;) nothing much to do in Windows anymore because a lot of I play work for Mac. This computer is very fast at least compared to the P4 2.6ghz I had before. So far I only had one flaw and that was with frontrow and iphoto events because it would lockup and close frontrow but within about 2-3 weeks of having the iMac+iLife '08 it was fixed and that problem is gone and now I'm working on a flawless computer :cool:

    I have recommended Macs too but one friend didn't take my advice and I ended up building the computer :D and he put Vista on it and lets just say Mac OS X >>>> Vista. Installing a game...Are you sure you want to continue with this CD? It may have viruses!...Click don't ask again! Ok! Next CD..Are you sure you want to continue this CD may have viruses!.... That was my experience and it was a bad one it was vista home premium and well for $150 more or whatever much more it costs for less features and copy of Mac OS X that costs $129.99 it is not worth it lol...So glad I went Mac and can't wait for Leopard!!!

    Me too. Mine should arrive between 4-10th october :) - I think it's on shedule, but I don't know for sure, since the Apple Store tracking interface won't give me any details. I'll just hope that it arrives this week.

    Mine seemed pretty quick. It took about a week. Ordered it around Aug. 26 or around that time and got it Sept. 5. I live in Western Wisconsin so I don't know if that had to do how fast it would deliver but it was pretty good time.

    Only thing upgraded was RAM plus my dad also added .Mac and iWork '08 - $100 or so because he is a professor and he bought a iPod 5.5 and had to pay about $50 with the rebate so it was pretty good purchase and this thing takes what I give to it so I have no regrets on this purchase ;)

    Hmm yeah the original ETA was tomorrow at the latest, and it's in Anchorage now. Guess things are looking up :D.

    Just started to wonder when it took so long to get out of China.

    Soo the package arrived in town tonight at 6:37 PM, and is currently "At dest sort facility," but FedEx's Estimated Deilvery is Oct 8 by 10:30 AM. Seems a little out of whack I hope this is wrong?!?!:confused:
