Yesterday I ordred my T430. I entered a different shipping address from my billing address because I wanted it shipped to my apartment instead of where my parents live. Today I received this email:
Dear Valued Lenovo Customer,
Thank you for your recent purchase, order # . However, we are currently unable to process your order with the information you provided.
Please reply back to this e-mail within 3 business days to resolve the issue(s) indicated below. If no response is received within this time, your order may be cancelled.
---- The billing and shipping address does not verify with your card company
---- Please contact your bank and verify that both addresses are on file. (Billing and Shipping)
---- Please provide the bank phone# from the back of your card.
Note: As a Lenovo Security Policy, we require that all customers denote their desired shipping address as an “alternate” address when filing their credit card information.
Has anyone gotten this before? Why can't I ship to a different address? What do I need to do?
The instructions seem to be there in the email.
 Added quote for clarity.

I love my T420 so I ordered a new one on 6/22/12. When configuring, the website had 6/28/12 as the shipping date, but my order status shows 7/22/12! I ordered the Nvidia 4200m option and I notice that these are phased out of the website now. I'm wondering if the supply of this card is the reason for the delay. I hope they don't use a refurb!

What time of day do UPS packages usually arrive? My laptop had its "Arrival Scan" in my city on Saturday, so I'm hoping it will arrive early on Monday, but I'm not sure how much difference that makes...

Did anyone who ordered a T420 with Nvidia graphics in late June get it yet?
I ordered on 6/22 and got a killer deal. The estimated shipping says 7/22. I was chatting with a sales rep and he said that this might be pushed even further. I'm wondering why such the delay. I know I was one of the last who got in on the Nvidia graphics option. I wonder if this is the reason.

First time posting and never owned a ThinkPad. Used Dell precision M2400 and latitude E6410/E6420 laptops, HP/Compaq business laptops (6715b I believe), Sony Business laptops (now discontinued series), Toshiba Satellite, and a few others but always wanted a Thinkpad.
July 12, 2012
Ordered a T530 with the following specs for total price of $1,530.88:

Part number 2359CTO, but using coupon THINKBTS717 saved me $332, and they threw in the 15.4” sleeve 51J0477 which knocked another $20 or so off.
Planning on buying a 4GB RAM SODIMM from crucial which is $28 last time I checked to bump the system up to 8GB.
Sales Rep estimated 6 days of build time and the status already states "Released to Manufacturing" with an estimated ship date of July 18 2012.
Looking forward to this new laptop!!!! Great pricing until July 17th too. I'll post and let you know how long build takes and how shipping goes...

I couldn't find this in KB, so asking here - where do you get your estimated shipping dates? When I log in to "findmyorder.com" all I see is "Order Status: Order in Process".

T530 ordered 7/12/2012
Now shows shipped 7/16/2012
estimated delivery 7/23/2012 but because the original ship estimate was 7/18/2012, I believe it could arrive as soon as 7/21/2012.
