Re: T-series shipping thread - 2011 edition

2011-04-20, 21:18 PM

Ordered: 4/13/2011

Shipped: 4/18/2011

As of 4/20/2011 it is in Louisville, KY

 

Shipped using UPS World Wide Expedited with World Ease.  The time in transit for WW Expedited is 4-5 business days from Asia to the U.S.  World Ease is a service that lets you bundle a large number of packages at the same time to another country.  The benefit is that they generally clear customs faster than if they were shipped individually.

 

I ordered a T420 with:

2 GB ram

250 5400rpm HDD

NVIDIA NVS 4200M (Optimus)

1600x900 screen

Webcam

Bluetooth

Fingerprint reader

9 Cell battery

Ultimate N-6300

 

I have 8GB of g.skill ram and a vertex 3 SSD waiting for it when it arrives.  I just hope that they had the sense to use Sata III in the main drive bay.  Crossing fingers...

Similar to mine, Jschartzbeck, but I went with the 6-cell battery.

 

I have 8GB of RAM, a Scorpio Black 500GB, and an Intel 310 "Soda Creek" 80GB mSATA SSD waiting to be installed in when it gets here.

 

Mine just arrived in Anchorage.  It's supposed to make it to my office on Monday, the 25th, so I'll just have to wait impatiently all weekend for it to get here. :smileywink:

TP T420, i5-2520M, 8GB, 80GB mSATA+500GB HDD
HD+ with webcam and Optimus, Intel 6300 wifi, BT 3.0
Windows 7 x64 Enterprise SP1

Re: T-series shipping thread - 2011 edition

I have a pretty unpleasant experience with my T520 order.

 

The order was placed on 3/29 and the initial est. shipping date

was 4/8. It later got deferred to 4/15 and then to 4/21 yesterday.

I checked again today and it said the expected shipping date is

now 5/11 ! What the heck ! It takes Lenovo more than a month

to get all the parts together ?! That doesn't make a lot of sense !

The customer service is also terrible. The agents always mumble

something about "part constraint" without being able to tell me

which part is actually in shortage. Without knowing the part which

is preventing the order from being shipped  it's very hard to modify

the order to work around the problem. Also, the agent told me that

I can only cancel the order and place a new one which puts it back

at the end of the queue. That's not very helpful for a disgruntled

customer.

 

Seriously considering cancelling my order now. Did anybody else have

similar experience with the new T520 ?

 

Spec of my order:

 

Corei7-2630QM

15.6HD+ (1600 X 900) screen,

2GB RAM

Nvidia NVS 4200M Graphics card

250GB harddisk

Express Card Slot & 4 in 1 Card Reader & Smart Card Reader

Bluetooth 3.0

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205

6-cell battery

Anyone receive their T420s yet?  I was just told that mine was delayed from its original shipping date of 4/20/2011 to 5/02/2011 due to supply shortages...sigh...

Is there NOTHING else running in the backround?

Exactly, nothing on background!

 

I get :

 

Processor:             3.4

Memory:                  5.6

Graphics:                4.2

Gaming graphics: 5.6

Hard disk:               5.9

 

This does not sound right!

 

Why? is there anyone got his T420s?

 

Thanks

Hey again,

 

I found the problem.  It is because I had it on ac power with the battery out.

 

I run windows experience index rate again and I got now with battery on and ac power on:

 

Processor:               7.1

Memory:                    7.5

Graphics:                  5.8

Gaming Graphics:   6.3

Primary hard disk:   5.9

 

That is a lot of differce.  keep that in mind.

 

Andreas

Shipping date got bumped to 5/13 again.

 

Just called Lenovo to cancel the order. Goodbye Lenovo. I won't buy from you again.
