I think I'm sold on ordering from them (instead of MacMall). I'll let you know if it is "too good to be true" later this week! Smile

Wow, after having priced PowerBooks for the last few days, Mac Gobbler's prices seem crazy. <crosses fingers for mav> Smile

I don't know? The main page doesn't seem like it has been updated it some time. It still shows "Reserve your Mini Now!" and "Shipping April 18th!"!!! Also it doesn't even show a Mini in it products page!

If they can't keep there website up to date how are they at getting product to the customer! Rolling Eyes I would be very cautious about ordering from them.

The individual product descriptions seem to be up to date...Specifically, the listed model numbers and specs for the iBooks reflect the latest updates.

We'll see. You can order via phone as well, so I may go that route just to give myself a warm fuzzy... Smile Should be ordering by mid-week.

I posted your question about Macgobbler at SpyMac.com to see what people had to say over there! Larger community then here and a lot of long time Mac users.

Definitely a good idea. I'll give them a call today at lunch.

I'm not sure if you know this, but Apple has 12" iBooks with warranty in the outlet. The specs aren't that bad. You can get a 1.2GHz/ 256MB/ 30GB/ CD/ E/ 56K/ 12-inch TFT iBook for $699. The only downside is no AE, but you can still get AppleCare.
