Re: TWO days EARLIER than the latest estimated date - just received W700ds shipping notice today

I'm under the impression that Lenovo corrected this problem, flexing keyboard, last March (2008).  Am I wrong and is this an isolated incident?

I received my W700 the last week of Nov '09.

Before reading the keyboard threads I never noticed the flexing.

To me the flex is absolutely minimal and the sound the "P" key makes

is slightly different but not enough for me to get my undies in a bunch.

Personally, I kind of like the idea of a perforated back plate for cooling

reasons. I'll live with the slight flexing.

Clacking keyboard

Mine was definitiely "clacking" - I got the replacement (not perforated) and it is different, though I'm still not happy with it. I might open it up later and add some support under the keyboard. Perhaps i type with a heavier hand than most?

W500 shipping delays

OK, so here's my sad tale - I'll come back to edit or keep posting until it's resolved. I originally ordered my W500 on Dec 11, 09. Was told by rep that he'd do "everything possible to be sure I had it before the end of the year". As holiday time approached, he promised to keep checking with supply chain and he'd update me. Suddenly, he stops returning phone calls or emails, I look on Lenovo web site and see 1/18/10 as the new delivery date. Repeated emails to him are not returned, and after waiting on hold for nearly 30 mins in sales que, I explain the situation, also that last email said he'd work with his supervisor to work out compensation. The new sales person confirms that WUXGA screens are having fullfillment issues and that my original rep should now call me within 15 minutes. About 30 mins later, I get an email stating that they'll take a whopping $60 off the order, and that 1/18 is now the EARLY date, and it may ship as late as 2/1! I'm in the same boat as many others here in that I really want a Lenovo, and this particular custom built machine. I could cancel the order, but honestly don't have a decent alternative. My real complaint is that Lenovo is not honest and proactive with my as a customer, and this makes it very hard for me to recommend doing anything but buying a CDW or instock model from a 3rd party. I had a similar crappy experience with Toshiba years ago and have not bought Toshiba's since, but their laptops also went downhill quite a bit. Seems like if Lenovo is offering big discounts in early Dec, they should realize that many of their customers want these as xmas presents or end-of-year business purchases. IF they knew they could not fulfill, this should have been stated up front. Hopefully the W500 is worth the wait.

Re: TWO days EARLIER than the latest estimated date - just received W700ds shipping notice today

I got two "departure scan" at Shanghai, CN on different dates and one "warehoused" at LOUISVILLE KY, US in between.

How could this be possible? Has this happened to anyone?!

Not exactly, but mine left SHANGHAI, went to the Phillipines then came back to SHANGHAI

and left again before going to the Japan, Alaska, Louisville and then here to Chicago.

The whole trip was about 4 days.

As of  today W500 stuck in customs in China acording to UPS, I think you can ignore the shipping info on line.

schmidtj:

 

Thanks for the info. The latest update has showed that mine is doing the same thing, left SHANGHAI, then came back and left again, now at Alaska this moment:   I guess the UPS tracking system is doing funny thing and causing the confusing.  My recent experience of buying PC from Hewlett Packard that using the Fed Express (international flight from Shanghai) is much better than this.
