    I'm just really bored here and thinking about the laptop I ordered. :) I ordered it on Saturday December 23 with the free ground shipping. When do think think this laptop will come to my door? Oh yeah I'm in Canada, if that matters.

    Well, I'm sure they couldn't work on it Saturday, Sunday or Monday, so they will probably ship it around like Thursday or Friday. That's about the time frame of when mine was shipped. (That's shipped, not delivered)

    It usually takes a couple weeks to arrive. The build time does differ depending on the components, and if there is a shortage or not. But I'd say 2 weeks is about average. You could get lucky and get it in about a week though.

    I ordered the 21st from the outlet so mine was already pre-built. Notebook originally said it would ship 1/2 but they actually shipped it 12/22. However, as of 12/26 I have no tracking info and the phone recording says it will get a tracking number when it gets to the shipper (UPS Commercial). Current estimate is 12/27 - 12/29 (I'm near Dell headquarters so may be faster than some).

    That is the will of Dell. They do not provide information. Best you can do is call them.

    Well you don't recieve the shipping info until the laptop gets to the Shipper. Alot of the laptops are built overseas and sent here to the regional distro center. Usually once it is tested it will take 3 days or so to get the tracking information. Hope this helps! :cool:

    My experience: I ordered my E1705 Black Friday and I received it Wednesday the following week.

    Mine was faster that what I expected. I odered on the 13th of this month, and the estimated delivery date was the 27th. Which made sense due to Christmas day and Boxing day in Canada. However, it arrived on the 22nd. Can't complain about that :)
