X61 availability in Dubai

2008-02-08, 13:02 PM
Several people here in Dubai been looking for X61 all around contacted lenovo local dealer (Jumbo) were they stated that its only available for  companies  use only not retail. this take me into suprize since all people around the world been ordering them and buying them in world wide market without any problem why it's only here ??

I talked to sales representative yesterday he told me he been getting lot of phone calls from ppl requesting him to try and spare some for them .. the only thing he was able to say is to contact lenovo site and ask them to do so??

strange policy .. I've been user of IBM computers since long time and i didn't had any such problem of not putting announced product in the market ??

anyone can help??

this venue is the wrong place to ask that particular question..
all here must kind of only say what would be approved be the company..
i happen to know a fellow who lives in dubai and gets a new thinkpad every few years..
he is iranian and his mother lives in (or near) nice, france..
so its not an impossible dream, just a little tricky..
what I would do in your place would be to find an online dealer and buy from them and if need be just take delivery to a friend in the USA and have him ship it to you in dubai..
this will raise the cost since fedex or DHL is costly to dubai..
but you will get a new thinkpad and if you get together with your friends you can save on the shipping by shipping two or three..
you MIGHT have warranty issues but thats another story and this MIGHT be the reason that particular model is sold only to large enterprises..
