OK I took the plunge and bought a 24'' iMac with the 8800 gs option on sunday. I also added the 2-3 shipping due to scheduling and pure anticipation. My free iPod and printer got here in 2 days (from cali), but my iMac took 2 days to get prepared to ship. Now it's sitting in Shanghai going nowhere! its 12:30pm (thurs) in Shanghai right now... What's it doing sitting?!? If it could get to the US tonight / tomorrow I think I should have a chance of getting to Portland OR by friday.
