tonyhughes: Well... my opinion of DSE has gone way down. I went in today to pick it up and give him two thousand dollars, and the guy says "oh - I phoned them yesterday and cancelled the order."
He did that after I took my deposit back (because they hadn't delivered on their very clear timeframe promise), and I said "If I haven't bought the Acer off you today, I will still get the Mac tomorrow".
He felt that was a cue to cancel the Mac order.
tonyhughes: And after all this, when I said "Geez, all I want to do is buy a Macbook if at all possible." he did not offer to place the order again!
