Called Lenovo this morning and got my UPS tracking number.  Epxected delivery of my T510 is now next Wednesday.  It's a bit later than I was hoping for, but at least there's now a bright light at the end of the tunne!


 

 

As expected, my T510 arrived this afternoon!  I haven't had a ton of time with it tongith but so far I am very impressed!  It's actually quite a bit thinner and lighter than I was expecting (and compared to my 700 lbs Toshiba Qosmio Q30 I'm replacing!). 

 

The HD+ screen seems quite nice; the keyboard is quieter than I expected and shows zero sign of flex (US Keyboard).  I've never used a track point for any length of time, so I'm experimenting a bit with it and trying to improve my accuracy.  The fan seems to run quite a bit, but very quietly (at least compared to the background room in my environment anyway). 

 

Best of luck to everybody still waiting!

Hopefully a final update from me.

For a T410, only changes to stock were WXGA+, 3 GB ram and the 6300 wireless...

 

Ordered 2/9/2010

Est. Ship 2/26/2010

Changed on 2/27/2010 to 3/11/2010

Called and was told it would be 3/23/2010, though the web status never reflected this.

Called again to ask if they could tell me why there was a delay (if it was a specific part I would cancel and reorder without it, since the lead time had dropped to 9 days). I was told my order would be expidited and sent in a couple days.

No change as of 3/3/2010 so I called to threaten a cancel unless they could tell me something, was told they would have my order out by the 5th

Status changed to SHIPPED 3/5/2010

 

As some others have suggested, it seems to help to call. The first call may get you nothing but apologies, but if you're civil and point out how long you've been waiting they do seem to prioritize the order. It could just be a coincidence, but each call took me about 1 minute to connect with an actual person, so it doesn't eat up any time at all.

Ordered 2/3

Original Estimate: 2/24

Second Estimate: 4/20

Ship date: 3/5

Delivered: TBD

 

A week later than estimated, I can live with that. As one ends, another waiting game begins!

My new T500 status mirrors Leon's - I ordered on the 4th of February, one day later than him, but my original and updated ship dates were the same and today the system shows it as shipped. Waiting for tomorrow to get tracking info.

 

In a world when most items like this are built/shipped in a week, 30 days is quite subpar...and even showing a 75-day ship date is completely unacceptable. This will very likely be my last ThinkPad.

The estimated ship date for my T410s (Intel graphics, i5-520M, 128GB SSD, 7 Ultimate x64, non-MT screen) just changed from 4/16/10 to blank, but the web site still shows the order in process. Does this mean it's not going to ship (cancelled, indefinite delay, or other problems), or that it's about to ship and I'll see a "shipped" status soon?

That happened to me too. I ordered a T400 with WXGA+ TFT with the LED backlight. The screen isn't even available on the lenovo site right now. Neither are the T400 or T500. If the estimated ship date disappeared, what does it mean? Is the order going to be pushed back or has it already shipped? I need the computer soon, my old laptop's screen already went out :/

I ordered a T500 on Feb 2 and it was promised by Feb 24. On Feb 25, the ship date changed to April 20, which is absurd for a pretty basic laptop. I called Lenovo a couple of times and they "expedited" the order, but they could not give me any idea when it would be shipped. Yesterday, the ship date disappeared completely. Then late this afternoon, it changed from "in process" to "shipped". So if the date disappears, that may well be hopeful.Calling definitely seems to help.

 

The irony is that I ordered a W510 with FHD display the same day. It was promised March 17, which is a long time, but not surprising for a new high end model. But It was shipped on Feb 21. So the ship dates really don't give you a clue about what is going to happen.

I ordered a T500 on 1/31 with delivery date of 2/22 which changed to 4/15! Luckily, just today, I got an email saying that my laptop has shipped! Woot!

 

Just wondering how much longer to get my hands on this puppy! Didn't know buying a thinkpad is such a hassle. Coming from the IBM lineage, I was expecting a rock solid experience but now my confidence in Lenovo is thoroughly shaken.
