    So my iMac is on its way... :cool:

    Free Shipping...

    Epson WorkForce arrived this afternoon...
    Back To School Card is expected sometime tomorrow...

    Order Placed: 9/12 @ 4:00 PM (EST)
    iMac Shipped: 9/14 @ 7:45 PM (EST)

    ...just under 52 hours :)

    And within the estimated 1-3 days to ship.

    Fedex tracking claims its location is Newark, CA.

    But...what was my iMac doing before I purchased it?

    Was it...

    Confined to its box on a shelf in some distant warehouse...?

    Sold from the side of a van in an abandon ally...?

    Fighting alongside other Mac's in a Desktop War against PC/Windows...?

    Transported on a Top Secret Apple Trans-Pacific High-Speed Rail beneath the ocean floor connecting China & the U.S...?

    Your thoughts?

    :apple:

    A few months prior, a Mac Mini and a Cinema Display hit it off and go out after work for drinks....

    It was assembled in Shenzhen, CN, then probably shipped to a warehouse in the US waiting patiently for you to buy it. If you had ordered it BTO, it would have been shipped directly from Shenzhen after being built.

    Dude, it turns out to be a Mac mini. Have you ever tried passing an iMac through your USB port?

    "Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China" thats what people refere to as interracial intercourse

    :eek: Mac's getting crossbreed with cheap chinese PC's ..you just get inferior bastards :eek:

    ... thats where the yellow tint in iMac displays since 2009 comes from ..when Apple decided its even cheaper if they mate the cheap bastards with cheap chinese pc's .. easy to spot those offspring got in 2011 a thunderbold port , and nobody knows what to do with that port ,actually even Apple still has to figure that out but they already offer a cable for the port, but leave it to the customer to wait that someone has the guts to make peripherals for that port :(

    and thats why its urgent more then ever before to order Apple Care too to get things right that went wrong during production

    dont refere to Scotland as the darkest corner of the UK , been there with the motorbike and i find its the most beautiful part of the UK , its just raining a bit to often , but i always say "there is no bad weather only unsuitable clothing "

    and Apple needs Apple stores today , where else could you find people to adopt such offspring
