8 days ago while I was ordering my Mini the arrive date was 3/7. Then upon the finalizing of the order it showed the arrival date being 3/13. 3 days later it showed as 3/17 and now it is 3/23.

5 days after placing my original order I bought one from the outlet. It will be here tomorrow. If I am happy with it I will cancel the New order. If not I return it and wait.

Who knows maybe I will probably keep both (I am but don't tell my wife )


Woooohooo!!!

When I ordered mine on the 5th March the delivery date was the 13th March.
Then on the 12th March the delivery date got put back to the 18th March.
Then on the 14th March the delivery date got put back to the 24th March.

I can't wait to see what the next date will be. I'm wondering if I'll ever get my Mini at this rate - the delivery dates seem to be heading into the future so fast that we won't catch them. Beats me how Dell seem to get their delivery estimate so wildly wrong and need to revise it several times.

The mini turned up on the 20th, and it is great. Got the robot delivery woman call even whilst the order status page was still saying in manufacture.
