Yay! My mini is finally on it's merry little way. The excitement is building. Smile

I am going to be documenting my Mac Switch experience on my blog, and I'll also post here at 123MacMini with some observations that I (as a 9+ year PC user) have as I make my first move into Apple territory. Hopefully my observations and witty insight will help the next guy out there that wants to switch.

You can find my Mac Switch Chronicles at http://switch.e3mw.com

I'm showing 123MacMini a lot of love in the posts because you guys have been an awesome group to discuss with the past few days. Though, I can't guarantee an influx of page views, and visitors because of my plugs... I'm not that famous... Yet! j/k! Razz

You'll love your mini. I'm surprised at how much I still adore mine (typically that initial euphoria with new hardware wears off quickly with me). Smile

Thanks e3mw. Woohoo, just managed to find the right TNT tracking number on the Apple Order Status page (which was continually showing Luxemburg). I checked this out on the TNT site. This shows a much more detailed listing of events. The status is now showing that its in Northampton Hub, UK at 17:52 today. Only about 500 miles to go now, so fingers crossed, I may get this gorgeous little puppy tomorrow Laughing Gimme gimme gimme Shocked

P.S. yeah, your blog is kewl. Not long till your blogging away on your shiny new mini Wink

Mine is now on its way from Memphis, I love the fact that it so happens to be delivering on my one day off this week or weekend as far as that goes.
Is that fate or what!!! Very Happy

That's awesome!

Mine'll probably be in Memphis tomorrow night. (seeing as I live like 70 miles away from memphis, that'll mean I should have it by Fri. Morning!)
