UPS trick is showing my i7+ 128 GB black is expected to arrive at my house by end of day today!
Ooouh! So my rogersdirect reservation (the backup plan) got "Escalated", then a few minutes later got changed to "In progesss" (real deal). Looks like since they cancelled my original "consumer" reservation they bumped up my backup plan. Sounds good to me!
My original reservation was a JB and my backup was a matte black, so they probably set me up for the matte black... But I seriously don't care.
