    when buying from apple.com, upon arrival do you have to sign for a purchase when it is received? I want to buy a MBP but I want it to be safe when it gets here, does anyone know about the security of buying from apple.com?

    thanks in advance for any advice.

    apple ships via fed-ex, and you're required to sign for it upon delivery. there are workarounds to this, though, if you're interested. if you're concerned about security, why not go to an apple store and buy one in person?

    Yeah, you have to nominate who'll sign for it unless you say that it's okay for anyone to sign (delivery to a business, for example). :)

    yes you have to sign...but you can get around it. On the Apple website there is a link to FedEx release form. Print and fill the form out and put it at your front door and they were leave your package there even if you are not home. I used it for my iBook in 2005.
