    You should get it tuesday or wedensday, they give you a FedEx tracking number which is accurate about 99% of the time.
    Thats a pretty solid setup. The processor and RAM will run very well, and the 250GB hard drive was a steal.

    As for the hub, I've been using a staples brand 4 port USB hub for about three weeks and its working very well. Plug and play, it was like 25 but if you don't want to wait for your 9 dollar one to come in from ebay then its a good deal I guess.

    No kidding. I don't get why they put 4 ports on the lowest end system they sell, then put 2 on all the others which cost twice as much.
