I ordered 9/18 with a delivery date of 10/29 (that's a LONG time BTW)

White, 16GB SSD, 1.3MP WebCam, Bluetooth module

I'll order a 2gig stick just as soon as I figure out if it will help.


Alpine White, 1Mb, 16Gb SSD, 1.3Mp webcam, Stock Mini Ubuntu. (Oh yeah, and bluetooth)

Oh, God, I hope DHL isn't delivering this one. The last laptop I ordered from Dell and that was shipped via DHL got delivered to the wrong house, on the wrong street, clear on the other side of town!

Ordered 9/3
To be shipped: 10/10

8gb SSD, 1GB Ram, no webcam, no bluetooth, black, Ubuntu

In hindsight, I wouldn't have asked for ANY upgrades, as I've since bought a 32gb SSD, and 2GB of ram, so the two things I did upgrade will end up being tossed out.

Yeah, same here, kind of a consolation prize for having to wait more than a month for it to actually ship. Plenty of time for them to earn that overnight shipping cost in interest alone. Mine still says "In Production".. 2 more days.. I'm bouncing off the walls...

I wrote to them this morning and what appears to have been some random nine year old Indian Child wrote back saying, "I am sorry sire but we can, not meet your request to expidite your order because of all dell orders are made on a first come first basis."

I feel like writing back, "Look here Maneeshi, I don't even know what a "first come first basis" is, and I don't think you should call me "Sire" until we get to know eachother a little better; capiche? Oh, and by the way, why the hell did you put a comma between the words "can" and "not"?

I FEEL like doing that, but I'm not going to because I really want my mini, and while they claim to be powerless over expidition, I just BET they can slow things down easier than falling off a log. :roll:

So for fun i called the automated status line....
first time from my house line it did not give me anything ... but i need to put a filter on that line i am hearing some bleed over from uverse.

I called a second time and was told my system was "in boxing" ... " based on this information, your system should ship on "10/24"... I love that.... I am hoping either it has actually shipped or will ship today. if the in boxing is actually true....
