    I was charged the day after I received it. I received mine in the morning and saw the transaction posted next day. For a day, I thought I was getting away with a free Area 51m until I woke up the next day and saw the transaction posted to my account.

    Well then, I guess I’ll wait till tomorrow lol. That is just plain weird though, never seen a company that charges after it ships/delivers.

    For me they said it has something to do with FTC regulation in the United States. They cannot charge until the laptop is shipped. They place a temporary hold in your account when you order. For some the temporary hold will stay the entire time and changes to a posted transaction. For some the temporary hold will disappear after a few days because some banks/credit card companies do not allow temporary hold for more than a certain period of time. This can be misleading because people start thinking if their order is cancelled when they see the temporary hold disappear from their account.

    Does anyone know the dell part number for the AUO 144 gsync screen not the LG Phillips version - you will be able to get this info by your dell service tag :) for those that have the auo panel thank you

    Congrats on the system. How's the screen color gamut? You happy with it? From notobookcheck reviews, they had the LG Philips 173WFG IPS with a 508:1 contrast ratio and 61% AdobeRGB which sounds quite disappointing tbh.
    I hope my system ships with a better panel.
    Also, do you like the white colour? I'm still unsure if I should've chosen white or black. Went with white(it was $100 cheaper on xotic) but I hope it's not a dust magnet.
