Re: W series shipping thread

Anyone know what this UPS message means:

 

SHIPMENT IS HELD TO VERIFY COMMODITY DESCRIPTION WITH THE CUSTOMER FOR CORRECT CLASSIFICATION 

 

My understanding is that it means Lenovo did not ship individual shipping documents with the laptops, just one for the whole "lot" of the shipment. Or was I given a bad explanation?

I have seen this on the boards before and I believe you're right. Lenovo screwed up the paperwork and you're hung up in customs. I believe you can't do anything other that wait. Somewhere I saw 3-5 days but no personal knowledge here.

I ordered my W500 on 10/21/08 and it was shipped on 10/27/08. This is four days ahead of what they estimated. Hopefully the same will happen with UPS.

 

My W500 made it to Alaska at about 1:00 this afternoon.

I was scheduled for Nov 3 but the delivery date has disappeared from my UPS tracking. I have no idea why. I will probably have problems at the end due to not being home. Does anyone know if I can call UPS to have them hold the delivery for me to pick up before their first attempt?

Mine is gone too. They must be able to hold the shipment for you.

YAHOO! YIPEE! I'm as giddy as a school girl.  ;)

My w700 showed up!!!!! I received an email with the shipping notification last night and the UPS guy showed up w/ it today!!!! I am very excited and hoping this thing is really worth all the $$$$, but so far I am pleased :)

I still think that Lenovo could use some help in the "communications" department..... It seems well built and the keyboard is like a cadillac compared to my hyundai (HP). I havent tried out the Wacom tablet or the color calibrator. Oh boy! This is better than Christmas.

 

Anyway....I'm not here to brag, I just wanted to encourage all of you who are still waiting!

W700 (finally!)

Glad it finely worked out for you.I know you had some pain along the way.

So it appears the pain was worth it.

Now if we can get the Alaskan's  to load that plane, the rest of us can join the party.
