Well it looks like were all going to wait a while longer. All I can say in consolation is that near the 30 day return period, we can all check what the price would be for us if we ordered then. If its a bit lower, we can all probably have them refund us the difference. Cause by the time we get these shipped, they are going to have a laptop to replace this one bringing down the price signifigantly.  I really dont believe orderes should be quoted for delivery until parts are verified. But who knows the real reason.
