I ordered a Thinkpad W530 on 8-22-12 and did not get an order status update until 8-31-12 when the order status said it would be shipped on 8-31-12, No additional updates happened until 9-10 until a new ship date of 9-10 showed up. Here it is 9-12 and no shipping information has happened.
Is this standard for Lenovo?
How long did it take for Lenovo to ship your thinkpad?

Look at the 2012 Shipping thread sticky for a good idea of what the process is from order to shipping. Apparently it varies from order to order. I got lucky - ordered my W530 on 9/2/2012, it shipped from China on 9/9/2012 and is scheduled to arrive either 9/13/2012 or 9/14/2012 depending on customs.
Other than that I'm not sure what causes the delays or speeds up the process

Thanks for the words of support. Just waiting on the phone for two hours and 3 minutes to have them tell me it should ship within the week. We'll see.
