The device is very popular for obvious reasons.  It's like trying to find tickets to a sold out concert.

Yes, true. But don't you think that was known at the time of the order? Also isn't the date of 1/1/2014 a bit suspicious? Sounds like production may be halted to fix something and they don't have a new date yet.

Which version did you order? It seems like the i7 are taking a bit longer to ship.

From talking to Lenovo customer service trying to cancel my order it's pretty clear that manufacturing and sales are totally disconnected. It may seem odd this day and age, but to cancel the order the rep said they had to send something written to get the order canceled and it may not make it in time. Keep in mind that I was trying to cancel 12 days before my ship date. Also, if I didn't hear back from them in 5 days I had to contact them back (not them me).

 

Putting all that together I'm guessing that sales is guessing ship dates without full info from manufacturing.

Hi, just wanted to share my experience as another data point... I ordered the i7 Gray from Best Buy for $1,199 on 11/5, had it shipped to a tax-free Delaware store (10 miles from me), and picked it up on 11/8. The manufacturing date is 10/28. It is returnable through 1/15/2014 under the extended holiday return policy.

The yellow is bad but I can live with it. The WiFi (with Bluetooth) seems OK so far.

I should go with bestbuy instead of the Lenovo. i5/8g/256g

Ordered mine on 10/16, just got it shipped last weekend, and expected to receive it on Thursday.

Lenovo website just updated with a new ship date earlier than my original ship date. Looks like the logjam is breaking up.

Yes, Lenovo updated my ship date this morning to today,  11/12/13, and guess what: end of the day, still says the same and 11/12/13 has come and gone.  And if you try going through the phone que to check order status or anything else except new sales, it is totally NOT WORKING.  I am feeling a little crazy to buy a computer from a company that can't manage a phone system or sales projections.

 

Has anyone actually received anything directly from Lenovo?  Not counting Best Buy.

my ship date was 11/07 but it shipped really early in the morning of 11/08. 

The order status page has been crashing randomly, prolly due to the constant checking. LOL i checked prolly 100x a day on the 7th.

You can use your order number and use the online chat feature on the sales page and they usually can check the status for you. 

 

My system is due to arrive on thursday.
