Default Dell Outlet Shipping Question - 02-04-2009, 10:04 PM

I just purchased a refurb. Dell Mini 9 from the outlet. Since the systems are already built, how long does it normally take for them to ship it out? I received an email which had a link to check the status, so I did and it showed next Monday as the Est. Ship Date. That just seemed weird but I figured many of you guys would know better.

Thanks for the input!!!

I ordered twice from the outlet. In both times, I received my mini before the shipping date that was posted. In both times, it was delivered within a week from the order date.

my experience is similar: I ordered a refurbed mini 9 last thursday (4/2) and received it today (4/8). The EDD was 4/13 but I'm not complaining

Ordered mine on 3/31, received it 4/3, scheduled delivery date was 4/9. That was with the 3-5 day shipping.

In hindsight, it drove me nuts waiting. But I was being as cheap as possible.

Unfortunately, in my case, the tracking never showed up (probably still is not there one month after arrival) Couple that with the e-mail not going to my current (but former) e-mail AND my PC going to my old mailing address, almost made for a very stressful experience.

I have purchased 4 Minis from the outlet since Christmas (family and friends fell in love with my wife's christmas gift). Each arrived within 5 business days and all were shipped slowest and cheapest means.
