Default Shipment Delayed! - 02-26-2009, 10:40 PM

No Mini 9 for me yet. It's ship date was pushed back another 10 days.

Will I ever get a Mini?

Dan, I feel your pain. I ordered a mini on the 6th and only just got mine yesterday. I'd still be waiting for it if I hadn't ordered one from Dell Outlet.

Here's hoping yours is shipped out soon!

I got tired of waiting for Dell. I got a "Previously Ordered New" from eBay for $239 shipped. Had it in 4 business days.

Yeah I actually placed a bid on ebay for a Dell Mini 9 same specs, but I was outbid! The auction went to like $260-+!

I figured I could get one, play around with it and then get another! Yes I am greedy.

i can't seem to trust bidding or buying on ebay especially when it's computers/electronics or any sort.

I ran into the same problem. I had ordered a new mini 9 on feb 11th and the shipping date just kept getting pushed back. After the second delay notice i canceled and ordered a scratch and dent with the same specs from the outlet on thursday (2/26) I got my mine yesterday and am typing on it now. Only thing with it is a small scratch on the top (which I'm sure I would have done eventually anyways). I love this thing and with the outlet I got it cheaper with slightly better hardware then my new order for alot less.

Not to mention that most sellers now are refusing to sell unless you use PayPal - which I don't trust at all, aside from the fact that I don't use credit cards.

6 days; that's good news as I ordered my mini a couple of days ago and am really not looking forward to waiting 3 weeks for it. Patience is not the easiest thing.

Picked up an 8gig SDHC and 2gig RAM from Newegg, that should be here anyday, teasing me.
