    i jsut placed an order online for my 15inch powerbook

    i have an apple store 5 minuted from my house, but i was forced to place it online. Why? beacuse the store doesnt carry powerbooks with the videocard upgrade. That pissed me off. THen i come home to order it and i cant even overnight the computer? Apparently because free shipping is an option i can not pay extra to overnight it. Mac may make some kick ass laptops, but when it comes to getting thier product to the consumer, they suck.

    Call Apple and complain to them, tell them you either want the computer now or never, they might switch you to overnight for free or something :hs:

    When I ordered my ibook, I got charged tax even though back then there wasn't an Apple store or anything in Kansas. When I called and complained threatening to cancel (cause the tax put me $100 over my budget :hs: I was already pushing it :o ) they gave me $60 discount :coold:

    why is it shipping from china? mine shipped from california. I ordered the 15" 1.67 PB with the 128 mb video card which I'm assuming is the same as yours and it didn't come from china so why would yours?
