As recently there have been several questions & comments regarding shipping dates, I've started this thread which can be used for these.

 

Some threads have been merged in and their subject lines edited.

Was; 4 month ship date?!

 

On sept 9th I purchased a yoga 13 + extended warranty from lenovo's Canadian site.

 

My shipdate has been pushed back more than 4 times...

 

The current shipdate is Dec 31st 2013. That is over 16 weeks.... (114 days)

The only reason I ordered online is because the yoga was not available locally in the month I ordered it. Now it is available locally for cheaper than I paid at any time. Also the lenovo website says that new orders for the yoga will ship within the month.

When I talked to support and they said they do not know why it is taking so long and that I can not cancel my order. Apparently it has gone too far. Even though it will not be made for another 2 months... Unless the date gets pushed back again.

 

I would like to either get a laptop or cancel my order... I need a laptop to take notes for school.

 

Is this the typical experince for ordering from lenovo or did I just have bad luck? Also at this point it is propbialy better for me to get a yoga 2 since they will be out long before my yoga 1 ships...

The new Yoga 2 Pro models are widely expected to be available for order starting this week 18-Oct when Windows 8.1 releases (this is not 100% confirmed but we'll know in a few days). It's interesting that Lenovo plans to continue to build the old model through the end of the year at least.

 

Have you asked for your case to be escalated to Customer Relations  - i.e. give up on talking with the sales team and try to negotiate with someone who has more power?

Thanks again. I got my order canceled and the warranty for the laptop returned. Hopefully things will go through smoothly and I can order a yoga 2 when they are released. This time I am going to try to opt for a local retailer...

Excellent!

 

In the US, Best Buy is already selling the Yoga 2 Pro at very good prices so hopefully you won't have too long to wait.

Was; Y2P ship date just slipped 2+ weeks

 

I ordered my i5/8GB/256GB/Orange Y2P from Lenovo on 10/17, and got a an estimated ship date of 10/25.

 

This morning the order now shows an estimated ship date of 11/14, apparently slipping by 20 days.

 

Kind of disappointing.

Same here. I'm now seeing a ship date of Nov 14 with a delivery of Nov 21. Two extra weeks is quite a bit of extra time. I know it's called an esitmated ship date, but can Lenovo give us a reason a for the delay?

 

Thanks!

Supply and demand. Not only is this machine hot on its own merits, but it's one of the first hybrid haswell machines available on the market.

 

When I got mine, I watched them sell out in all Best Buy's in a 50 mile radius before I had time to react. Luckily, one of the ones close to me actually had one to part with.

Was; Yoga 2 Shipping delays

 

Is anyone else having issues with their Yoga 2 shipping? I ordered mine the day after the Yoga 2 was released. On the website, they said the orange Yoga 2 should ship right away. However, when I checked my order status, the actual shipping date was listed as 10/25. Kind of annoying that the website was wrong but I thought the delay would be OK. Today I checked to see if the Yoga 2 had shipped and it's listed as at an estimated ship date of 11/13! Anyone know what's going on?
