    Edit: This post is about a year old now, but people seem to still be posting, so feel free to use this to discuss your order progress with others!

    Hi, So I bought a Dell Xps 17 - L702x, and I thought I'd make a thread to track how other people's orders are going.

    I ordered my Xps 17 on about the 25th of February. The delivery estimate is the 23rd of March, and it seems to still be saying "work in progress" when I track my order (I live in the UK btw)
    - Update (7th): It now says "In Production" :) The estimate is the same though.
    - Update (11th): It now says "shipped"! and it should be coming on the 14th!
    - Update (14th): Arrived today!

    I posted a review here:

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/dell-xps-studio-xps/562138-dell-xps-17-l702x-thread.html#post7253864

    It's a great laptop. It's amazing at gaming and I get about 25 FPS (15-35) on metro 2033 at max settings.

    Incase you're wondering, my specs are: i5-2410m, 4gb ram, Nvidia 555m, 320gb hard drive, bluetooth, 6-cell, 1600x900 screen + the regular keyboard. I think i'm going to be the only person with this exact configuration since they removed the i5s almost straight after bringing them out :)

    So how are everyone else's orders getting along?

    I ordered mine the 24th, but had to cancel a couple of times to get it right. My final order went in on the 2nd of March, and is "scheduled" for a 28th delivery with 7 day shipping. My first order was also the 23rd. I haven't found anyone who has recieved it yet. Hope we hear orders start shipping this week.

    Pretty much the same as me then :eek:

    Is yours saying "work in progress"? I'm pretty sure that means they're getting all the parts together, so maybe they're still waiting for a certain part? like the fixed motherboards?

    Ooh, mine has just updated to "In Production"! yay! :D

    Does anyone know if they build them from scratch, or if they just add things to a pre-prepared model?

    Mine has said in production almost since i ordered it. it said processing prior to that. But I am in the US.

    I think the time consuming thing is loading up all the bloatware they put on it. I wish they would just send a CD with that stuff on it, so we could throw it away if we wanted.

    Yeah I looked it up. My "work in progress" stage meant they didn't have the right parts yet. I reckon they ran out of i5s.

    Looks like everyone's is estimated for roughly the same date (20th-30th)
