ThinkPad slate tablet's shipping thread - 2011 edition

[ Edited ]

Post your shipping and order management experiences here:


Here are some common points of frequent discussion:


  • Avoid Credit Holds - ensure that BOTH your bill to and ship to addresses are listed with your CC bank before ordering
  • Lenovo will NOT bill your card until order ships - an authorization charge hold to check for available balance may show up when order is first placed.
  • Estimated ship dates are based on default lead time and can vary from what was displayed on website.
  • In the US and Canada, Lenovo utilizes UPS for new product shipments
  • Orders may ship before the Estimated Ship Date
  • Orders may enter through Alaska and pass through Louisville, KY before traveling on to final address
  • Cancellation requests may take up to 2 days to process
  • Requests to change configuration or other aspects of the order may require the order to be rebooked.
  • Lenovo does not accept payment via international credit cards, except AMEX.

Have fun with your new Think-tablets!

So who's ordered one?

I ordered the 64gb model with the pen and the keyboard folio. Hopefully I will see it before the weeks end!

Re: So who's ordered one?

Hi Giblet15,

 

congrats!

 

I would like to have one too! Smiley Happy

 

Please take a short time and write a review.

 

Especially your experience in regard of using the keyboard folio, would be interesting.

 

Best regards

Re: So who's ordered one?

As long as cell phones retail for 500 dollars or more, I won't be holding my breath for a sub 500 dollar tablet - unless another company sells off their tablet business like HP.

You mean like the Asus Transformer, Toshiba Thrive and the Acer tablet....

 

I like the quality that Lenovo brings with it but the price for the entry level is just too expensive to even consider for a relatable consumer product.

 

For the price+accessories for the entry level tablet I can buy a lenovo laptop that is more efficent.

Re: So who's ordered one?

Congrats. I would like to read the reviews from early adopters before buying, so please make sure to write one.Thanks.

 

The two times I bought early [other brands] I got stuck and don't want to make the same mistake again. Lenovo is a new company for me, so all info is important in this decision.

 

Enjoy!

Re: So who's ordered one?

People seem to forget that this is not entry level. The K1 is a better consideration for entry level. The Thinkpad is a business grade tablet and is priced accordingly.

As for as when we will get some hands on for reviews the estimated ship date skyrocketed to about three weeks out. I have classes starting next monday and was hoping with the expedited shipping it would be received by then.
