It came! It came!
My new laptop arrived a day early!
So far, I've had a chance to take it out of the box(es), look at it admiringly, pet it, talk quietly to it, and read the "Everything Mac" pamphlet that came in the box. Plugging it in, turning it on, and conforming it to my every whim will have to come later. Like tonight.
(And for those playing the home game, I went with the 13-inch. It was on sale. And it has a camera!)
