The Waiting Is the Hardest Part February 4, 2009Posted by antimeme in Uncategorized.
Shane was overly optimistic about the shipping. Yanno, I wouldn’t have expected it to be here at all were it not for Shane’s rosy estimate of delivery time. As it is, the laptop and the SuperDrive are still “In Transit” from San Francisco. The mouse and iWork are another story altogether. They are being shipped by DHL. Estimated delivery date has been updated to next Wednesday for them. How sad.
In the meantime, I have been reading up on my new toy. Most of the folks who have actually used the thing have discussed the issue of heat – the laptop gets hot, and then either slows or shuts down. This usually happens when doing graphically intensive things, like watching YouTube or Apple Developer Connection videos. That could present a problem.
