I did a bit of ego-surfing this morning, while waiting for a client file to download. Lots of interesting posts. Geeky info had this to say about my tablet temptation:
I am speechless with admiration that Eric could continue to process his in-box while the box which contains his new tablet PC sits on his desk. Or is it that Eric knows that his boss reads his blog?
I am an independent eProductivity consultant, so I don't have a direct boss per se. Still, I'm accountable to myself, my family, and the clients that I serve.

The greatest transparency, however, is with my wife and children. They know what's in the box. They've heard me talk about it at the dinner table. They know I want to open it. They can see my desk through the French doors of their classroom. If they see me approach the box, they know to smile, wave, and ask me if I've gotten all my work done.

When does warranty begin?

I'm curious, does the warranty begin when you open the box or when you ordered it?

Warranty info M4

I suspect it began when I took delivery
