Re: Shipping date/notification?

I ordered mine a few days ago in order to replace a slightly glitchy one I bought at Best Buy a week ago(i5, 4Gb, 128Gb). I ordered the top line silver model i7, 8Gb, 256Gb SSD, Win 8 Pro.  Just checked the order status page and it says an estimated ship date of 02/11/13. Thats a pretty long wait, 9 weeks might be too much, even with my extended return policy at Best Buy, I'd have to return my current one by Jan 24th. That would mean 3 weeks with no laptop and only my office desktop to get by. I don't know, I'll keep my eye out for a better top model at BB and maybe just pick one up there. The current new one that is 1400 has similar specs to the top at lenovo except for the Win 8 Pro and 8 gb ram, which is only a $50 premium.

Who knows, CES might reveal something more compelling!

The the longer lenovo wait to ship out their products, the less appealing it becomes over time. 

However, I think the more interesting products will be when these ultrabooks/subnotebooks or whatever you call it start using haswell chips. But the release date on those seems to be Q2 2013....

Re: Shipping date/notification?

I ordered the clementine i7, 256, 8gb on 12-9-12 with an estimated ship date of 12-25-12.  Mine shipped 12-12-12 and is scheduled for delivery by 10:30a.m. tomorrow 12-14-12.  I'm glad I waited for the clementine before ordering.  I'd of cancelled if I ordered the silver.

That's great! I ordered the same one - good to know they are being delivered earlier than expected. Did you call Lenovo to "fast track' the order?

i think the first whole week of clemintine orders fit on the same airplane to alaska, and then to kentucky. From there they have already been able to do one more air hop before friday delivery, so if you live somewhere with direct ups air service from kentucky you should get it today.

Re: Shipping date/notification?

Before my android editor cut me off, i was trying to say... folks like me will likely be bumped over the weekend. Additionally UPS consistantly delivers so very late at night here that just before the actual delivery their web page automatically but falsely says it's rescheduled to the next day.
 
P.S. the few android browser editors that can deal with rich text (which is needed for quoted replies here) seems to lose its cursor place after a few lines, and can't access the last line even in post re-edit mode.
