Re: SLx series shipping messages

I believe the shortage is over. My first order got canceled, so I decided I'd wait for the delays to end. They appear to have ended, so I ordered today, and used the Student Discount and that eCoupon, and got a great deal, even added in the Laser Mouse, which is on sale too. I really hope this works out for all you guys who hammered though this. I'm lucky not to be in a rush. =)

Re: SLx series shipping messages

Re: SLx series shipping messages

I ordered the SL300 series on Aug 29/08 and now they they delayed it to Oct 03/08. That is more than 30 days already. Everytime when I call I get different stories about the delay. I really don't know why Lenovo is delaying the shipping and how this can affect their reputation.

 

I will cancel my order if it does not ship by Oct 3/08 for one last time.

What's DOS?

43 days waiting so far.  My feelings have been anger, then confusion, and now finally morbid curiosity.

 

Order number: 2D0X2J
