FedEx delivered my modem. I got the box, opened it to make sure it was in fact the modem, then slapped the return FedEx label and dropped it off at the FedEx terminal.
Last week, on the day I received my Mac Mini, I trekked over to an Apple Store and picked one up. Since the Mac Mini doesn't come with a modem, and you really need something to connect to the internet, I had to have one.
So right now my old Dell, the one that had the hard drive crash back in December, then started to work again, albeit slowly, now sits in the corner, alone, disused.
