My X201t, ordered on 3/9/10, shipped on 3/24.

 

Looks like my fifth order processed in the manner that one would expect.

Hi everyone, anyone else received this bad news today?

 

"Dear customer

We regret to inform you that we are experiencing an unexpected component shortage  which is affecting your order.  We realise that we have given you different ship dates based on the information we had at that time but these are no longer realistic based on the latest information we received today. Our current information indicate that we will not be able to fulfill your order until the end of May.

We are continuing to work to improve this situation over the weekend period but realise that we may not be able to recover the ship date to meet something that is acceptable to you.  We will be contacting you next week on the phone number given in your order to discuss the options available to you in relation to cancellation/refund/return of options already shipped and/or replacement order with other processors/systems.

We obviously hope you would like to keep your order with us and we will do our best to offer you a solution that is acceptable to you

Please note that due to this issue we are currently experiencing heavy call volumes so we acknowledge that it is difficult to get through on our Telesales line at the moment.  

Again our sincerest apologies for the delays and inconvience this has caused you. "

My spec is:

-multitouch screen

-500GB 7200 HDD

-3x3 WIFI

 

Other than that, standard spec.

 

Bummer!:smileysad:

 

Paul

I feel your pain, paulhayden. Got the news via email as well. I contacted lenovo a few days ago asking about the reason for the delays on my order (ordered a x201t over 2 weeks ago) and it seems like the reason for the delay is the availability of the 640LM core i7 processor. I assume that was in your order? From what i gather, if you agree to settle for the 620LM processor, you can change your order and have it shipped sooner rather than later..

 

I was originally told that it was going to be delayed until april 9th until i got the same email indicating a delay until the end of May :(

Well, credit to Lenovo, one of their sales reps emailed me at 21.30 to tell me the same as your post above ie settle for the slightly slower processor and get the machine earlier - with 10% discount offered as well.

 

I know what I'm going to do! (assuming delivery will be expedited!)

I still show on track with Lenovo as 4/13 (*knock on wood*) for my x201t with i7-640 processor. I also have an order open with PCConnection. Yesterday I was told their latest ETA's are 4/13 and 4/29. For what it's worth, I first tried to buy an x200 on 2/15 (wasn't going to ship till 3/12, so I canceled for the 201). Sigh.

Lenovo has pulled the x201 tablet from the website ordering....I wonder if the 4/13 date will hold up?

Why is the X201 Tablet not avaliable anymore?  Before, Lenovo had the "8031" model which restricted user options to ULV i7s instead of i5s and i7s.... now it is completely gone.

 

Is the X201 Tablet coming back? if so when? is there going to be more options for the CPU?

 

Thanks

I ordered mine on 3/6/10. I've never received any emails about the X201T being pulled or delayed until May. In fact, I've never received any emails except one a day after the order was placed. Can anyone out there provide any more insight into these issues?

Don4law: i'm pretty sure the delays we're talking about are exclusive to the UK and ireland at the moment. The websales support is usually pretty quick to get back to any questions you have about your order so give them a shot if ya need.

 

paulhayden: if you're still checking these boards, let me know how your order is coming along - i still haven't been contacted by lenovo despite emailing them again to discuss my shipment delays, so if you have any news do share!

MiPo, I re-ordered the lower spec machine and am expecting delivery tomorrow - I've ben avidly watching the UPS tracking website. Apparently my X201 is currently in Warsaw, Poland (en route from Shanghai) so hopefully it'll be in UK tonight and my house tomorrow..........fingers crossed!!!!
