Okay, I placed my order with Mac Connection last night after dinner. I opted for overnight figuring I'd receive it Monday. I got an email this morning with package tracking number this morning around 8. On checking, I discovered that they already had it on a truck in Austin. Apparently, their state to state transport is being handled by either Superman or Mr. Scott.
A quick call to DHL, and they were willing to call me when they got to my door. The new machine hit my door step at 12:45 this afternoon. I ran home to toss it in the front door, and then headed back to the office.
