I just couldn't wait any longer. I picked up my credit card and bought a U2 iPod for $375 at the online Apple Store. :headphone I don't even have a Mac yet (maybe when the birthday checks come in next month I can snag an iBook.)
It's going to be tough waiting and knowing that I won't be able to use my iPod when it arrives, as I currently use Linux, where Nothing Works (TM).
T-Minus 5 days and counting.

why do you have mac specs listed already if you do not own one? *confused*

I got sidetracked by Linux for a long time and I've had nothing but problems using it for personal computers, so when the *new* iBooks were released, it made me think of how badly I wanted one, and now I had the incentive to actually get one because of all the unix-y goodness of OS X with fewer headaches. Plus they look fawking awesome.
The Mac specs are just wishful thinking. Sorry for the confusion.
*waits for the birthday checks to roll right in*

That sounds like "not working" to me.
Plus, my laptop has neither USB or Firewire - so I wouldn't be able to use it anyway even if the software would work.

FedEx r dum
It's about 100 miles north of here in Phoenix - and the estimated time of arrival is Wednesday. I could drive over and pick it up myself if I was so inclined.
I'm definitely buying the iBook *in town* now that I know where the official Apple Store is.

iPod arrived today.
So far - I've only opened up the outer (brown) box, revealing the black, red, and white iPod Special Edition box. I'm not going to open it up any further until I get an iBook, which is more than 2-3 weeks away =(

i bet ur $50 itunes voucher that you open it.

But, no - you can't have the voucher :-P
I'm going to get the Complete U2, but it'll take me another few weeks of digging coins out of the sofa to pay for it.
