Re: P50/P70 shipping thread

2017-06-05, 23:20 PM

My delivery date got pushed back to June 9th for a delivery date of June 16. 

Even though I confirmed with a post-sales individual that their wouldn't be any further delays. I'm not upset, just disappointed. I don't think I'll ever order from Lenovo or recommend to anyone unless they're willing to wait about a month. 
There's also little to no customer service feedback. I haven't received an email about my delayed order.

Like many of you, I ordered my P71 on may 30th. Original shipping was first week of june. Then it was pushed back to end en june but was bring back to yesterday. And It has been shipped. (following the ups right now)

My P71 also has a Xeon 1505 so maybe they're in short supply.

Ordered my P51 with a Xenon processor on May 23rd. Original ship date was June 2nd for a June 9th delivery. Got an email from Lenovo saying my order has been delayed and would ship within 30 days. I reached out to Lenovo customer service and they contacted their Order Management team at their warehouse and were told it shows a "committed ship date of 6/22" for my computer. So anyone who orded a P51/P71 with a Xenon processor on or after May 23th expect big delays. Orders placed today have a 5 week delay.

Just noticed on the Lenovo website that pre-configured P51's with a Xenon processor are listed as  "Temporarily Unavailable" and cannot be ordered. I ordered mine on May 23rd and has been delayed several times. Originally was supposed to ship on June 2nd for a June 9th delivery. Within the last week my order went from shipping on June 16th to June 17th and now it's June 19th for a June 26th delivery. I'm not holding my breath.

Checked the OVP this morning and it still showed a June 19th (today) ship date with a June 26th delivery. So  I was somewhat encouraged. BUT, checked status again at 2:25 pm and the dates were changed to June 29th ship date for a July 7th delivery. I wasn't pleased with this latest delay to say the least since my order had been placed on May 23rd. THEN, at 2:57 pm got an email from Lenovo that my order was shipped with a delivery date of June 23rd (this Friday)!!! How bizarre is that! The ship and delivery dates have changed about 5 times since the order was placed. Original ship date was June 2nd for a June 9th delivery. So with all the delays the original delivery date has only slipped by 2 weeks which is not great but certainly tolerable. Good luck to those trying to order a P51/p71 with a Xenon processor. When I checked yesterday P51's with a Xenon processor were "Temporarily Unavailable" and couldn't even be ordered. So when they are finally available I suspect it could take weeks or even months to get after your order is placed. Good luck to all!

It's definitely been a roller coaster with this order, but I'm excited to finally have a laptop. Sadly, I don't think I'll ever purchase directly from the Lenovo Website, instead I'll go out and find a local provider. Good luck with your order hopefully it doesn't experience any further delays, mine is currently on a plane to Alaska im guessing but should be here by thursday. Crossing my fingers that it is earlier.

My order may experience a 1 day delay in the delivery. Although Lenovo shipped it yesterday and they handed it off to UPS they did so after the latest pickup time for UPS Worldwide Expedited service. So UPS says a day delay in the delivery is likely since it missed that shipping window for UPS Worldwide Expedited. I can't complain though. At least I know what's going on.

Found out today that my order will take a couple of days longer to arrive. UPS updated its delivery date originally on June 23rd to June 27th. Right now it's in Shanghai waiting to leave the country. The delay was caused by Lenovo missing a shipping window to be picked up by UPS which caused a ripple effect. I'm slightly disappointed but can live with a few days delay.  At least I know what's going on.

Looks like ThinkPad P51's with Xeon processor is listed as "Temporarily Unavailable" and can't even be ordered whereas you can order the P71 with a Xeon processor. I can only guess that because of the limited supply of Xeon processors which has caused shipping delays Lenovo chose to limit them to the more expensive P71's. I guess I'm lucky that I ordered when I did. My P51 is due to arrive 5 weeks to the day after the order was initially placed due to the Xenon processor shortage.
