    And the wait continues! :D

    Order was delayed again, until 6/5. Had to consent to the delay or the order would have been cancelled. At this point I'm really starting to wonder about whether I'm actually getting an R2 or if the order will again be delayed and Dell will deliver an R3. It does seem that the 680Ms are the holdup. Perhaps I could sweet-talk them into a 780M SLI upgrade if my order is delayed past 6/10.

    Not mad, not irritated. Dell has been very accommodating thus far. I'm just ready for this beast.

    very unlikely they will get ya 780m SLI, more likely if they get so short on M18X R2's they just may offer you equiivalent or better option of R3, so best bet hope for that :D

    Indeed! Fingers crossed for either a quick ship or an equivalent R3. Hell, I'd take a giftcard at this point.

    Update: just saw that the US config site no longer shows a delay for 680M SLI option. Here's to optimistic thinking that they have them in stock!

    Okay something weird is happening to my order :p the computer is set to arrive on time with no delays so far but I also ordered battlefield 3 with it and that has been delayed twice :/ and I talked to a dell rep and they said they haven't even started production but the email says that it is in production :/ these guys need to learn to coordinate with each other and tell the right thing to thecustomer. If anyone can help me that would be amazing :)
    Thanks
    Roshan :)

    Well, I'm giving up. I've decided to get a laptop from pcspecialist in the UK which will be delivered next week, was getting sick of waiting around with dell to sort out the order and saved £1000 in the process, so not too disappointed. Good luck all those who are waiting, enjoy it when it arrives......:thumbup:
