podge, I'm gonna say this very quietly in case you sprint down and beat me to death, but my 7700 was delivered on Thursday - I am imagine you are very very disappointed because according to Nial a whole lot of them were shipped at about the same time.
Ok, < empathy ends >
...so, laptop. I was just so excited when Nial said it had been shipped that i kept checking the StarTrack website with the consignment number;
on truck (hmmm)
on truck (yeah?)
on truck (grrr!)
so i rang registry at work and they had it already;
went down and got it. I barely had 10 minutes to boot it up (XP key? WTF? I just wanna play! ) tho because i was in meetings all afternoon or slaving at my desk, but my work buddies had plenty of time to admire it. I showed a friend on the bus going home, but at home i worked pretty much through to 1am then fell into bed.
So today at 4:30 i got up and got at it!
Hey, I'm pretty damn happy. The only issue so far seems to some intermitant audio loop that is like a 1 second stutter and I'll check that out here see if anyone else has the problem. I also bought the Audigy and that might fix it. I'll be pretty pissed if I can't fix it.
Hang in there guys, AW Australia really exist and they even occasionally ship product. They don't do it very well because they included something i didn't order (shhh!) but I'm viewing it as a bad CS compensation and it ain't going back.
