Was; Re: Y2P ship date just slipped 2+ weeks

 

The only way "Supply and Demand" impacts an existing order is if you choose to delay comitted orders and ship those machines to retail instead because this gets you more sales in the end.

 

Otherwise you ought to know when your production is expected and how many machines you will have and when so that you can give a reasonably accurate estimate of ship date. Once you have comitted a particular production slot to a particular order, there's no reason why "supply and demand" would affect it, unless you're playing games as above. So more likely something happens to make it impossible to make your previously comitted manufacturing dates due to production (parts availability) or shipping (slow boat from China) delays or something like holding up production due to a critical hardware problem that is discovered.

 

Having expected by machine to ship today, and now having to wait the better part of an extra month for it is disappointing to say the least, so I would certainly feel better knowing what's going on. I am considering cancelling the order today on the grounds that I can either find one at retail or an acceptable machine from another source well within the new shipping time of the Y2P. I could have new MacBook in 30 minutes if I decide to go that way for example.

The shipping date on my Yoga Pro 2 has been delayed and the delivery date is nearly a month from now, I need this machine for work and could have easily had a machine from another company by now.  When I purchased from lenovo I was not under the impression that it would take nearly a month for a product that is already on the market in stores to get to me, is there anything I can do to speed up the order?  If this is not rectified in the next couple of days I'm canceling my order, very dissapointed.

I have just had the same experience.  Shipping date has been extended for the third time, now to 11/13/13.  I have read about display (although questionable) and WiFi issues, and it is my hope that the reason for the delays is to correct any discovered problems before shipping. This is what prevents me from trying to get one at Best Buy, although they do not have the model that I want anyway.  I really hope the delays are not due to overbooking, as it would seem that orders would be shipped out in the order received.

 

In any case, it's very disappointing.  And because of the number of delays, the 11/13 date is not reliable.

Yoga Book 2 Pro - 59394167 - Clementine Orange

 

Placed an order on Lenovo.com for a unit on 10/18. My estimated ship date has been pushed back several weeks as well, currenlty showing as 11/14.  The estimated ship date if I were to buy a new one today is actually a day before my systems estimated ship date is....

 

This system is for work for me as well and the delay is causing me issues... planning to work from a borrowed netbook while I wait the extra time for this, which is not very good for coding.  Contacted chat support as was told the delay was due to part shortages and that manufacturing waiting on parts was the only thing holding up the order, which means there's nothing they can do to bring it in (so they told me at least). The other take away I get from that is that it's not delayed to fix any known issues, just that they've overestimated how quickly they can make these systems.

 

At this point my plan is to watch the estimeated ship date and if it slips further out, or if the netbook I'll be using becomes to frustrating, cancel the order and go buy an ASUS or a Dell I can pick up locally.

 

To bad they already shipped me a case for the system and have an earlier estimated ship date for a spare charger, if I do end up cancelling my order I'll get to go through the fun of returing those items as well.

 

- Looking forward to an awesome and beautiful system as this really does look like the best thing out there right now.... just hope I can get it before I have to move to using my budget for something else

Same here, 59394167 (Clementine i7 8gb 256gb) pushed from 10/31 to 11/12,

I had to cancel my order, unfortunately I can't stay that long without a laptop.

 

Good luck to everyone!

So here's bad news.  The Lenovo web site  has apparently closed orders on it, and again says "coming soon".

Changed again, now it's available for purchase, shipping 11/13/13.
