    Greetings to all.

    I just ordered a Modbook today from OWC, shipping to Canada.

    They claim they weren't supposed to charge my CC before the unit ships- though they were exceptionally prompt today to charge my VISA (10 minutes after I ordered it).

    Does this mean the Modbooks are shipping in Canada already? I couldn't get a hold of OWC today, and it's the weekend. But I am curious to as why they put the charge through so quickly, the confirmation email I got said it'd ship March 3rd.

    Cheerio.

    I know with OWC they put through an authorization, but not the charge... they want to make sure the money's there... but within 24 hours the money credits backs to your account. Might that be the case?

    Hi Barla,

    if you live in Canada (that's just an assumption), why not buy from Carbon Computing in Canada?

    They seem to be just as "authorized" as OWC is...

    just curious...

    That's a good question.

    I didn't even know they existed until you mentioned them. They don't really have anything about buying the Modbook on their website, but I've contacted them regardless.

    Frankly, I'm a little concerned that OWC is locking up my money and playing games with my CC. I was under the impression that the VISA wouldn't be touched until the unit shipped.

    Either way, I can't have them holding $3K for a month. Guess I'll see what Carbon has to say about the Modbook.

    BV, in my case they didn't hold the money for a month, just 24 hours. If it seems like they are permanently holding it, you should call them.

    Hmm.

    Just wondering- has anyone around here ordered a MB from Carbon Computing? If so, what were the wait times like?

    It appears as if the issue resolved itself.

    OWC just contacted me- they don't ship to Canada with the Modbook.

    How my order got clogged in their system, I'm not sure. Guess it's all up to Carbon now.
