Are you waiting on a CVS Netbook?

CVS is hoping to have shipments in the stores this first week of November. The shipment from Sylvania is supposed to be going as planned. The person I talked to at the main office did encourage me to call the store before making a trip. The trucks arrive on Wednesday at CVS. The price is going to be in effect through Christmas.
