    But they are not shipped from Ireland? At least my previous orders have always shipped from asia. Ireland is just a 'base'. Unless things have changed in the last year?

    Oh that I did not know.

    Before Dell owned Alienware they used to be made in Ireland. Shows how long I have spent in the Mac world.

    mine m18x with 680m sli due for delivery on or before 28'th June , as the status page says. If I go configure new order with 680m sli, it estimates 26th June now. So It may be that it will get to us sooner than later.

    All I hope it arrives with zero faults or imperfections :D

    My M18x-R2, due June 21st with 2x 680m's. Again the 680m cards are the reason for the delays.

    Supervisor told me the demand for them has increased since the emergence of the 780m. Obviously people trying to cash in on a good deal :D

    I wish Alienware prices would stay the same if I ordered mine today instead of on the 21st of May it would be £167.96 cheaper provided I still got 10% off. Mine is still in pre-production!

    This is something Apple just don't do! the price is the price. You might be able to barter a mouse or apple care. Regardless the laptop or system is still the same price no matter where you buy it!

    Don't get me wrong I can not wait to get my new Alienware M18xR2, I just hate to feel that I had to give me £ than the next person. Especially When I am spending £3000+.

    My most recent Macbook pro cost £3098 with Apple Care... I got that in 6 days!!!! with a RETINA display! Plus there customer service is 2nd to well.....NO ONE!!!! If your going to sell a premium system then act like a premium company!

    and Breath!!!! sorry rant over. I just had to get that off my chest.

    Dell tend to change offers every 2-4 weeks so you just get the deal at the time and DONT LOOK at any offers after (until yours arrives).

    Just one of those things. I got £300 off and free delivery and a extra 7% off. However 3 days before i ordered I could have got a 10% discount instead of 7%.....just the luck of the draw!

    And my order edd is 1st July.......so I best not check any offers until after then :D
