    So after about 3 weeks my Macbook finally came. It was quite an interesting eBay experience. I'm going to do the battery calibration when I turn it on but I have one question. It's between -5 and 0 degrees fehrenheit outside and when I opened it up it was very cold. It wasn't ever sitting outside my door but it was still pretty cold. I'm letting it get close to room temp before I turn it on. Is this bad that it came pretty cold?

    As long as it was properly packaged then you should be fine. I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy your new macbook

    New Aluminum Macbook?
    If so, this is from Apple.com:

    Electrical and operating requirements
    Line voltage: 100V to 240V AC
    Frequency: 50Hz to 60Hz
    Operating temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
    Storage temperature: -13° to 113° F (-24° to 45° C)
    Relative humidity: 0% to 90% noncondensing
    Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet
    Maximum storage altitude: 15,000 feet
    Maximum shipping altitude: 35,000 feet

    You should be fine. I had the same question a few weeks ago about an external hard drive that had been sitting at the door in the cold. Everyone here informed me that I shouldn't have any problems. It wouldn't hurt to let it get room temperature before powering it on though. Probably not necessary, but why not.
