I ordered my new Intuos2 on Tuesday. It arrived yesterday (Wednesday) by UPS ground (free shipping from Amazon). Must have been drop shipped from a local warehouse--all I can figure.
Now to figure out where to put it. I don't think it will fit on the keyboard/mouse shelf. There's a nice Indonesian or Philipine desk at Pier One that's much larger, but it doesn't have all the compartments. I'll have to take some measurements. Having the computer in the living room next to the audio/video equipment is handy, but the computer center looks pretty bad next to the Swedish furniture and Japanese and Chinese antiques. Integrating computers into daily life can be a real bother, though it's always nice to have an excuse to buy something new.
