    It all depends on what is happening in the production process/build of your order...If there is a shortage of parts, under-estimated dates....

    Feel lucky that yours wasnt in the middle of a build, and a part became on *back order* ~ and your order didn't get cancelled, *refreshed* and had to start all over :(

    And, yes Dell always over-projects the ESD, sometimes it works to your advantage and you get it earlier..and sometimes things happen and its unfortunate..:eek:

    I hope your order does not take that long....


    Cin ;) :)

    I've been thinking the XPS models would get the Montevina/Centrino2 updates first, but the Outlet was FLOODED with Inspiron 1525 and Studio 15 units in the last week or so. There were over 900 "Previously Ordered New" Studio 15's and around 1400 "Previously Ordered New" Inspiron 1525's. There are usually a few dozen or maybe up to one hundred of these normally, so it's obvious they're pushing existing inventory via the Dell Outlet.

    Dell is the only major notebook manufacturer left who doesn't have any Montevina-based consumer models yet! HP has had them for several months, Toshiba has offered several 'Centrino2' configuration for a while now, ASUS and Lenovo have updated their lineups. Dell is the odd man out, so they'll be rolling out the updated models any day now!

    It now makes perfect sense that the Studio models could be the first to get the updated hardware. As the multimedia/entertainment-oriented systems, they're the head-to-head competitor for the new HP Pavilions. I just hope that Dell doesn't try to "out-bling" HP when they update the internal bits! I sent back my new HP dv7t last week after using it for five days- I hated it! I'm much happier with my Studio 15 from the Dell Outlet and saved over $400 to boot! I'll take function over form anyday. :D

    Ordered my Studio 17 on September 9th with a delivery date of the 25th. It was shipped out on time and I should be picking it up in the next day or two. I live overseas so the delivery date is out of Dells hands once they ship it. So everything was on time for me. I also ordered the tangerine orange lid so maybe that is why there was no problems with the order.

    i ordered on the 8th and was told the edd would be the 25th. got an email the other day sayin my order will be delayed but they didnt say how long. i also ordered tangerine orange. Hopefully i wont wait too long.

    what was your build? were there parts they warned may delay your build?

    i ordered my 17'' on Sept 5th, and it was ESD for Sept 22nd. I actually got it on Sept 18th.
