Ordered a laptop on ebay.

September 9th.
Shipped Sep. 10th.
Arrived in Canada Sep. 16th.
Stock at customs up to Oct. 10th
The seller was kind enought to try resending an other via Fedex
Arrived at Mirabel Oct. 15th.
Stuck there since then.
Now the seller went up to California, bought an other one, came back in country with the laptop.
I just received tracking. Should arrive by Thuesday.

That is 3000$ we are talking about... (ok... MSRP is 4600$, but still I bought it 3000$)

I just wish you guys more luck than what I had.
I had a laptop in customs for months, they got it just before the Xmas break, no invoice from the shipper on the package Then they're closed for XX days for the season. Got the invoice, got in touch with them on the phone, emailed them the invoice and it was released.

If I hadn't been experienced in clearing oddball items out of customs I might have just sat around with no idea about where it was till the clock ran out and they sold it off as unclaimed. This wasn't an eBay deal but an overhaul so I only had a vague idea of when it was leaving the techie.
