Re: W series shipping thread

Oddly enough, I never got a tracking number at all - but I did receive my W500 today.  I am having troubles with the mouse cursor freezing now though (via UltraNav trackpad) - I'll start up a new thread for that though.

 

Thanks for the help, everyone.

I placed an order on 11/04/08 for a W500 and it shipped out earlier today 11/10/08.

 

I put together some stats for W500 orders made on this forum, NBR and forum.thinkpads.com if anyone is interested.

After 8-faithful years with my A21e (Still working fine - everyday) and after seeing a seeming resolution to the FireGL V5700 issues....

 

Order Placed Wed, Nov 12/08:

W500 4058CTO

  • 2.53GHx, T9300
  • Vista Bus 64 ("Future" Upgrade as it were) 
  • WinXP Pro Recovery CD (For immediate use with AutoCAd Certified OpenGL)
  • WSXGA+
  • 3GB RAM
  • 160GB 7200 RPM HD
  • 9 Cell Battery
  • 3 Years EasyServ
  • etc etc

 

Order Placed: 12/11/08

Order Status: Submitted  In Process (17/11/08) Lenovo E-mail dated Dec 8/08: Status SHIPPED! :smileyvery-happy:

Estimated Shipping Date: Dec 12/08

 

 

Well! It has arrived - Dec 12/08 - almost a month after ordering and almost 8 years after receiving my A21e !

 

I am "plagued" by the infamous FireGL V5700 / ATI HD video (which card is it) problem as found in threads elsewhere. I was hoping to have it shipped with the lastes Bios 1.19 and the not-yet-certifed ISV (8.543) drvers, but no -- Bios is 1.18).

 

Beyond the that, the screen is awesome (1600x1050) and the keyboard is as solid as my true-IBM thinpad extra-:)

 

Fast as the dickens with Vista64

Ordered a W700 on the 31st of October 2008.  Got delivered on the 12th of November 2008.

 

 

 

PROC    :  Intel Core 2 Extreme proc X9100 (3.06 GHz, 1GHz
FSB)
MEM     :  4 GB (2 x 2 GB) DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM
STORAGE :  HDD : 320GB / 7200rpm RAID 0 config (2 x 160GB)
STORAGE :  ODD:  Multiburner (12.7 mm)
DISPLAY :  17" WUXGA TFT with intg camera LCD Glossy (1920x1200 res)
GRAPHICS : NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700,   Video RAM std/max  1GB;
POINTING DEVICE : NVIDIA x-rite PANTONE Color Sensor + Wacom Digitizer
AUDIO   : 2 x 2 W internal speakers
COMMS     : 56K V.92 designed modem AMOM , Intg Gigabit Ethernet,
            Wireless : Intel 5300 AGN (3x3),  Bluetooth
SLOTS   : Express Card /34 + 7-1 Media Card + Compact Flash slot
BATTERY   : 9 Cell Lithium-Ion battery
SECURITY  : Fingerprint reader, HDD password,  Power on password
CAMERA :  Integrated Camera
OS     : Microsoft Win Vista Business 64-bit with XPP 32-bit recovery Media

Been using IBM Thinkpads for work and decided to get one for my personal use.  I've never really had any issues with my work laptops and am hoping this Lenovo Thinkpad will be reliable. 

 

First impression of the W700 is that it feels extremely solid.  The screen is super bright and calibration is so easy.  I am glad to have less clutter on my desk.  So far, nothing to complain about except my diminishing bank balance.  Who cares... this system is my early Christmas present to myself.

Help! Can't check the order status!

2008-11-15, 1:06 AM

I ordered a W500 from CPP yesterday, but I have not received the confirmation letter yet. I didn't save the customer id and order id when I checked out, so I can't check my order status.

 

How can I find my order's customer id and order id? The email address of the order is wang_in@hotmail.com.

 

I have sent email to critical@ca.lenovo.com, websales@ca.lenovo.com, custserv@ca.lenovo.com, but all reply the error message:

 

Your message

  Subject: Can't check order status

was not delivered to:

  ***
@ca.lenovo.com

because:

  User custserv (
custserv@ca.lenovo.com) not listed in Domino Directory

 

Can Mark_Lenovo help me?

 

Thanks!

 I ordered a W700 October 24, 2008 and received an estimated ship date of November 14, 2008.  I just checked the status today (November 16, 2008) and now the ship date is December 5, 2008.  I was really hoping it would not get pushed back.  :(

Did you write down or print out the final payment web page? I wouldn't bother writing them emails. I would just call them. Usually the support line is quite prompt. I called them a number of times for different reasons and usually it takes just a couple of minutes to get a real person on the line.

Hey liquidxnitez, I ordered my W700 on October 31st and was supposed to be shipped by November 11th but Lenovo changed that date to December 2nd...

My guess for the delay is the QX9300 CPU... astrodoob got his W700 by ordering it the same day I did and he already has it. The only big difference is the CPU.

Pepe - That's interesting.  I guess they might have a shortage or bad batch of Quad Cores.
