    Thanks Betmen2, I didn't realize there were still some offered in the business section. But these are all i7's only. I don't want an i7 but rather an i5 for cost and battery life reasons. Almost a 2 month wait? Wow that seems a bit unreasonable for current technology. If waiting that long might as well wait for SB.

    yup. i just ordered my screen from sunvalleyus on ebay. my intention was to avoid hootoo, because they're such a sketchy seller.

    nope hootoo = sunvalleyus.

    JeffL keep your eye open at dell outlet
    Dell XPS 14 Laptop Details | Dell
    They will have refurbs with i5 and what ever you want. Here a bummer
    but i have to tell you. Last week they had 20 xps 14 on the outlet for 20%
    off there outlet price. you could get a xps 14 with i5 for 600 bucks. they called it the winter sale.
    It killed me that i already owned one and these computer are like only 2 month old
    Anyway you wsill get a great refurb with i5 if you just watch every day
    and you'll get the compuer in like 3-5 days GOOD LUCK

    yeah. no tracking number, and no notification of shipment. they also used USPS to ship and usps stopped delivering because of all the snow... so if its at the post office i cant even get it till monday.

    Papatek is 73bucks while hootoo is 87bucks though, even if they are the same company. I ordered on Thursday and the shipping status changed to "sending" rather quickly. Though there's no mention of shipping method or carrier. Hopefully it will arrive on Monday.

    Thats so funny my $98 dollar screen from hootoo is also at the post
    office due to bad weather, which was promised by Friday and i had to call
    hootoo for the tracking number. Ordered on 1-31 and never heard another word..I just
    can't believe they have three companies under one roof
    with 3 different prices. sunvalley is a wholsale company but the other 2
    are retail with a $20 price differential.
    I really dislike this outfit,,, there certainly no Newegg

    no argument there. I'm in upstate NY so I figured cali to here is about 3 days (which is why i think its there right now...)
    are you much further/closer than that? just so i can get a better perspective on ship times?

    Suburb of Detroit Michigan mine was sent out Monday
    by UPS Ground, It was delayed in Illinois due to weather
    so i have to wait till Monday. I never realized that USPS
    is faster than UPS

    Now I'm confused. Does "Posting Status : Sending" on papatek order status mean it's being shipped?
