I had some "interesting" experience during my attempts to acquire a PB17. Those interested may read the story at the following URL:

That's a great story! He's a good story teller and has an uncanny knack for remembering conversations, word for word

Makes me happy for him buy makes me sad thinking that I, and so many others here don't have ours yet and can't share the enthusiasm I'm sure he's feeling now.

I don't know what to say: what a day!
In my country we say that there are days you shouldn't leave home!
Enjoy you're Powerbook, mine I'm still waiting but they will deliver it to me next week!

Well at least I hope you work on Salary, hehe.

Not had a bad buying experience with computers but a decent shock several years back. Paid $2000 plus for a Dell, had checked to ship to an alt address being my work. On delivery day it had not arrived by late afternoon so I checked the status to find it was delivered at home at 9:45ish A.M.

To my surprise it was still in front of my door after a painfully slow bus ride. Even though any car that drives by could see it from a good distance, anyone that walked by or exited the cul de sac, would see this aptly labeled DELL LATITUDE beckoning them to steal it.

I'll either be buying retail or be camping in the bushes to ambush the fedex guy this time.
If a group of mimes are miming a forest and one falls down, does he make a sound?
