    26 July back into "pre-production" due to hold on palmrests
    I am waiting on a confirmation on a shipping date

    19 July "build stage" (no longer here)

    Order Date: 6/26/2007
    Shipping Method: maybe boat, maybe plane.
    Est. Ship Date: 7/28/2007
    Earliest Ship Date: 7/23/2007
    Est. Delivery Date: 7/30/2007 (probably 15 Sept 07)

    Call (800) 433-9014 (US only) for pre-production included automated phone system [thanks to blahdude84 for this number
    Website status will not show pre-production
    Website login should show pre-production, but I'm EPP and only get "under maintenance" or "no pending orders"
    Rep will tell you



    ***
    Dell has been taking on 30 days between build and delivery for the production, if your date goes over that, then we're into demand. These dates are probably longer than it will actually be. As soon as someone can post an actual ship date, we can all cheer.
    ***

    Since there's another thread that includes all dells and very little useful info, here's this one.

    To Kadena AB, via a PSC address...basically it gets shipped to Seattle 3-5 days and then takes a boat to get here...around 4-6 weeks. The only downside of living over here.

    guys remember these lead times are normally estimates and thus I would expect the product to ship sooner, but because its a new unit, these lead times may be accurate. Only time will tell at this point.

    I am a little scared at how fast the estimated dates are going up, they have gone up by nearly 3 weeks in 3 days of ordering.

    To me that kind of looks like more demand than they were expecting, or maybe supply problems?

    I will post again as soon as my status changes. Hopefully it is not in August.

    I went to the apple store yesterday to luck at it. It is pretty sick. The design is flawless and the os is pretty easy to get used to.

    Interesting that some people have longer delays. I wonder which part of the machine they configured that caused the extra delay?

    Your order date cannot be 6/31. Either its 6/30 or 7/1. Which is it? :)

    Also remember everyone this is not all that uncommon. I was thinking of getting a Lenovo T61 when it was released. And it seems they took over a month to start shipping after taking orders.

    So this is not a strange thing to see some delays when ordering a brand new laptop. Remember also that this is not just updated specs, it looks like most of the parts of the M1330 are pretty unique to it so they have to ramp up more to get it going.
