    You probably don't want your laptop delivered, until they fix this issue anyway. Otherwise, you will always wonder, if yours will heat up/burn out. Best to wait until they fix this issue.

    same here but that's for them to fix anything so don't get your hopes up. It's simply a shortage of CPUs that they are facing.

    Just checked with dell on mine and I'm still on track for a ship date of the 25th. Im guessing they are having a hard time getting those screens in.

    lol, if mine got delayed to April 25th I'd probably just bounce for now and wait for better screen or buy something different entirely.

    Orders still showing before end of the month, so I'm hopeful (ordered 3/7, seen two delays so far).

    No, I would leave it, just use a higher pad than stock. Then test fit it. It's ram, so that should be fine for that part.

    The problem with this is....the 2070 has nothing covering any of those parts, which is weird. That's why in another thread I post it as speculations....Also that card is pulling 120W max vs the 2080 pulling from 180W to 200W.... What do you think?

    Are you in the US? I ordered mine on the 13th and my dates haven't changed much. I believe all of us that ordered before the 15th are getting shipped on the 24th (what my packing slip states) and 25th. We're almost there guys :)

    Yep, US... and I'm think you're right. I think there's a big batch for the 24th.

    THAT SAID, I'm still only "confirmed," and according to dell support my machine is still not built, yet. Hoping for some movement in the next couple days.

    It was a joke. There will be better panels coming out though.

    My order still shows 3/25-3/28, but on Dell's page here in the US, it now shows "Get it by Thursday, Apr 25 with Express Delivery"
    That seems new/different.
