Any help on the differences would be appreciated so I can decide which to reformat with.
When did you order yours? I ordered mine on the morning of Friday, 2-17-06 and it is also still in the "boxing" phase. How long does it take to get from Malaysia to the US anyway? I assume that the holiday didn’t not help much either.
I am tempted to call but my expected ship date is not until next Monday so there is not much I can really complain about. It just gets frustrating watching it go from kitting to boxing in 6 hours and then sit for 3 days.
I will have a legit key for MCE so I am sticking with that (reloaded first of course).
