I have most everything, but if Santa could, and airport extreme would be great.

Please, Santa, may I have access to the internet?

As for stuff you can buy from Apple Store Canada or the nearby retailers, we have pretty much all of it already, so that's not what's on our lists.

Our Macintosh-related wish list comprises mainly one item: a hardwired internet connection. Here in the backwoods of SaltSpring Island, we currently must rely on wireless modems to access the www, via a tower on a nearby Island. (Which costs about $ 75 for 5 gigs up/down per month, per wireless modem, I think - we usually go over that a tad and then pay by the meg for the overage.)

According to Santa's helpers (more precisely, a crew of fibre optic installers I encountered on the roadside recently), one of the internet providers will actually meet our wish within the next few months, and bring the internet to our hovel. It may not be so much an Xmas acquisition as a Spring Solstice one, and, having had a quick look at the internet provider's rate sheet, it sure will not be a gift, but anyway, it will be welcome.

Mac Pro only does 3G speeds, so I decided that going 6G was only good future proofing. I checked out reviews that were showing the 6G drives weren't going any faster than the 3G drives on a Mac Pro. Giving how fast these guys are dropping in price, I wasn't too worried about future proofing as my Mac Pro is <1 year old and won't be replaced for a few.

The 3G Extreme is $359 vs the 6G Electra at $395. However, I went for the Elite mini kit for $409. Which means I got the normally $85 Elite mini for $50. Had I gone with the Electra, my $409 would have been $480. Instead I grabbed another 4 gigs of RAM and saved some money too.

I'm calling tomorrow to find out what's up. I just figured stock would improve but now that I'm understanding the game plan between apple and the networks I'm resenting apple for aligning with big networks! Lame. Very Canadian....

I don't know, they don't list it on their website. If they want my business, they need to tell me what they sell and at what price. I checked many online stores and although there were some similar prices for other brands, most places were a lot more expensive.

OWC is one of only a few US companies that I'll deal with. They've got good stuff and ship fast. I ordered late Saturday morning and FedEx had the package a couple hours later.
