View Full Version : First mac purchase!

Can't really say I 'switched' because I'll never fully give up my PC.

But I ordered my first mac on friday. A Stock 17" Powerbook. :D :D I can't wait to get my hands on it. It'll be great to be able to use OSX, UNIX, and WinXP all on one machine...I'm a senior Comp Sci student and want to learn to develop for OSX (already know UNIX & Windows).

I'm so excited!

Ordered it w/ ground shipping...any idea on when it should arrive?

congrats on the purchase, im a junior cs student, and i love using my new mac for projects. My plan for the summer is to pick up carbon and cocoa. When i ordered my powerbook, i ordered the 2 day shipping, and it was pretty much stock, except for the ram (ordered a single dimm 512 instead of the dual) but it still shipped direct from the factory. The 2 day was really 2 day shipping from taiwan so, it was well worth the $15 shipping charge. As for ground on a machine i do not know. I have ordered other stuff from apple and gotten it in 2 days via ground shipping, I would assume that if its stock, it should take the time for ground packages to reach you from california. Im not sure, sorry i couldnt be of more help.
