I'm going CRAZY waiting for my mac mini! It's just too hard to wait! I honestly can't wait.. Ahh, it's too much! Anyways, bought a 1.42 Ghz, 512 RAM mini on eBay... The guy said he'd shipped it on Thursday from the US via post office... I should have it in "3-5 business days".. Which means that I should expect to have it by this Thursday! I really hope that nothing bad happens with the shipment... I'm going out of my MIND just thinking about the mini! Wish me luck with the safe shipping! Razz

I'm going crazy too. I ordered up my Mac Mini withh 23" Cinema Display and wireless keyboard and mouse from the Apple online Store on 7th July. I've picked 1Gb RAM, Superdrive and Bluetooth options, so it got sent to Manufacturing (in China). As far as I can tell, it shipped out from China on 13th July by TNT and its still not here in the UK. I keep checking the order status like 3 times a day and its still sitting in Luxemburg. The pain is unbearable. I just wanna get my paws on this little beauty ASAP. I hate waiting for deliveries even if they only take like 1-2 days. Apple's T.N.T courier service just seems shockingly bad. I know its free shipping, but I would rather have paid maybe £20 to get it a lot sooner. I have had shipments coming from China to the UK within 2 days, so I don't know what TNT are playing at... Bunch of jokers!

Just bare in mind... "Good things come to those who wait" Laughing

Yeah, they are truly gorgeous panels. I just hope there are no defective pxels. It's amazing to think that the tiny little Mac mini (no bigger than two fag packets) can create such an amazing display on a 23" panel. Damn... The suspense is killing me Mad

Heh. Like I've said before, you guys have no idea of the wait times us "early adopters" of the Mac mini had to endure. 6 weeks was COMMON early this year.

You are one lucky guy! 23 inch Cinema display!?! Holy jeeze! You must have worked hard as hell for that one... I only got a 19" LCD monitor off eBay ;P

Hmm, it seems like EVERYONE is waiting for theirs! I just can't wait till I get mine! The wait feels so much longer without a tracking number... I just try not to think about it and the days pass by a lot quicker Wink

lol, errrrm... I'm not that lucky (or hard-working), I just have some "flexible" plastic friends Laughing I thought... what the hell, its only non-money and life's too short to not have a Mac mini and 23" Cinema display. I can always live on baked potatoes and beans for a few months. In addition to that, I am really cheesed off with this crappy, 3 year old DELL PC that I'm using. Yes, I'm a switcher! Just checked my order status AGAIN and its STILL sitting in Luxemburg (that will be 5 days its been sitting there come 10am tomorrow).

That's funny that your nick is IKEAboy and you're getting a 23" Cinema Display. I hope it's not going to be placed on IKEA furniture Wink
