Default Ordered mine today! - 01-15-2009, 11:01 PM

Hi there, just ordered my ubuntu 32GB mini today. Scheduled delivery is the 27th (boo) so I'll be getting my ducks in a row for the OSX install in the meantime. I came over from the insanelymac forum where I managed to get my old IBM T43 up and running, sort of. I must say the method described here looks like a breeze in comparison; thanks to those that have done the dirty work to make it so.

Cheers - Michael

I ordered on FRI 16 JAN and my status says it should ship on 28 JAN. But sheesh, reading posts elsewhere in this forum I will count myself lucky if it really ships when Dell has initially estimated.

Obsidian black, 512mb (with a 2gig Kingston stick on the way from NewEgg), 64gig drive, 1.3 cam with Ubuntu but I've got a retail XP license so I'll dual-boot.

I also ordered the specially-made-for-the-Mini9 Belkin bag from Dell 'cuz it looks perfect for my needs.

OMG I'm all antsy waiting, reading everything I can find about tweaking, modding, hacking it.... So glad I found this site!

Thanks a lot This forum is awesome.

Hmm, I think based on your .sig I'm about due to pick and order a skin. Heh heh

Hey @thaddeussmith and @outkast007, have your estimated shipping dates changed since you first ordered?

Also, assuming you're "in production" like I am, have you found whether you're in the "boxing stage" too (you can find out by calling 1-800-433-9014 and putting in your order number)?

my ship date still shows the initial one of the 27th. web still says "in production", and the phone status does indicate "in the boxing stage" ..though I'm not sure wtf kind of indicator that means. knowing dell it could take a week for them to tape that thing up.

Heh heh, yeah -- I called and got "boxing stage" yesterday; today I talked to a rep who said "boxing stage" doesn't necessarily mean it's ready to be packaged.

Greaaaat. :P

Not to rub it in (seriously!), but reading this makes me really glad I ordered mine from the online outlet. Placed my order Monday afternoon, and the status went to shipped about twelve hours later. According to the FedEx tracking site I should have it by Friday or Saturday.



But I still hate waiting!
