You should sue them for something like that!

I've had 'em shipped to me plenty of times with no problem. It just looks like that poor SOB ran into a room full of club-wielding crack-monkeys.

One of my first jobs was hardware support.

Often, we'd repair a PC, ship it back to the customer by courier ... and it would be broken again by the time it got there!

I had once my iMac shipped to and from Holland for repairs.
It came back with scratches all over (thankfully NOT on the screen) and missing some screws.
But, eh, an iMac is as solid as a concrete block (and as evolutive too )...

They prolly thought of the money they'd save if they kept the screws

It's a ploy Any Mac related item shipped through UPS will be destroyed, they have an agreement with Microshaft.

As for UPS, I've never had a problem with them. They are a little slower but cheaper than FedEx, and don't pick up stuff when I ship it out from my house, but I've never had anything damaged. The bigger the package the more likely it is to get F'd up though.

That is pretty bad with that computer.



I had my V5 shipped to me and it came out fine but the retailer didn't use UPS they used Airborne Delivery which came in about a day after ordering.

Yup! Just tie a rope around that handle on the top and you have a good boat anchor!
