    Just looked at the ad in my newspaper for Fry's Electronics and they are having a sale this friday at 6pm selling Tiger for 99 dollars. I'm from Chicago and the Fry's is located in Downers Grove which is just west of Chicago

    I don't have a mac but thought others might like to know :)

    well I thought it was a pretty good deal. I have no use for it since I have no mac, but I know there's enough mac users here

    I know we always get raped over prices. the standard price is about £80


    just an update though, my tiger is out for delivery, I just hope they can give it to the game shop as just about everyone in my house has an exam this morning on Graphics

    Mines out for delivery, phoned TNT this morning to see if they could re-direct the delivery to a place of work (ie: where someone will be) or leave it at a neighbours, apparently they can't re-direct and need a note on the door to leave with a neighbour, not much use when I'm about 20ft away from getting into work. Feckers.

    Come home and the status page hasn't updated from this morning and there's no calling card... I'm hoping they've not called yet, unlikely though, couriers hate everyone. fact. :p

    Curse you. :p I'm not sure when Amazon will have my copy here. When I check the site it now says "Availability: Usually ships within 1 to 2 days". When I checked this morning it still had the pre-order thingy and said shipped by 28th I believe.

    *does a suggestively mocking dance of doom*

    Had it installed about an hour, and have already compiled an IRC client (EPIC5) and hacked Safari to use the new 'Plastic' (think mail2.0) look :p

    If it wasn't a bday present and I had the $ myself I could still make it to the Apple store. They closed @ 5pm and reopened @ 6pm for Tiger. They will be open till 12am tonight. :D I got all this info at SMUG meeting (Syracuse Mac User Group). ;)
