    Does anyone know how long the back order is thru apple on a mini? I want to order one thru the site and was curious to see how long the actual time was, the site is saying 3-4 weeks.. I cant wait that long!!!!!

    Thanks, and does anyone know if they charge tax?

    3-4 weeks.

    call [font=Geneva,Arial,Helvetica]1-800-MY-APPLE [/font]and ask. they're the only ones who will be able to tell you for sure.

    they will charge tax.

    They had some in stock at the Fry's in Austin yesterday. You have a Fry's or CompUSA nearby? Might be worth a shot.

    quick update,
    i've been checking the local stores over the last few days and no one has them in stock, i bite the bullet and ordered straight from apple.. hopefully it'll be here fast.

    i ordered a 1.2 with 512 ram and a keyboard. i'm soo excited, i used a mac for the first time last night at compusa and i fell in love with the os.. it is extremely easy to use. I cant wait to buy my apple 20in lcd!

    If it's in stock, they will charge it when you order. If it is not in stick, they will charge it when it is in stock, before they ship.

    update of an update,
    The local apple store gave me a call saying they were holding a 1.4 mini... Needless to say I cancelled my online order and rushed downtown... I'm soo excited and I cant wait to try this beast out tomarrow! I really want to get the 20in lcd... It looked amazing hooked up to the mini at the mac store.

    i'm seriously in love with apple products now... i love the os and i guess I'm a sucker for their marketing tactics! my gf also fell in love with the laptops at the apple store. i'm sure we'll be making a visit their soon.

    A quick question... is there any way to reset the password for osx? i just installed it and i'm trying to update all the software but I need a password.. I specifically remember the pw i used but it is not working... maybe its the MS keyboard I'm using? any help would be appreciated.
