Then I would expect that you will receive your new ThinkPad in a few days, if not sooner. You will need to be present to sign for it, upon delivery.

Cheers...

Congrats, nice choice. I buy two or three new ThinkPads each year. Just a guess on my part, tells me that there's a good chance it will ship early. Keep us posted, this is exciting!

Posting this from my R51. When it came time to replace this laptop last year, I bought one of Dell's new E series Latitudes. I liked it (mainly for its Thinkpad-like style) but the body started cracking around the screen... not very durable. As it turns out, the Dell and my wife's older Toshiba were both stolen recently, so we spent our insurance money on two new Thinkpads. :D

Order date: 7/7/2009
Shipped: 7/9/2009
Estimated delivery: ??? (UPS says it has cleared US customs)

Wife's computer: T400
Core 2 Duo P8400
2GB RAM
Vista Business x64
WXGA
Integrated graphics
160GB 5400rpm HDD
DVD/CD-RW
Wifi Link 5100
6-cell battery

My computer: T500
Core 2 Duo T9400
4GB RAM
Vista Business x64
WSXGA+
Radeon graphics
64GB SSD
DVD-RW
Fingerprint reader
Bluetooth
Wifi Link 5300
9-cell battery

Using my dad's IBM employee discount, total price was just over $2000.

I've ordered t400s on July 13. At first, estimated shipping date was today, July 28, but now it's moved all the way to September 17! All because 128gb SSD drives are on back order.

Ordered a T400 this morning! (7/31)
Core 2 Duo P8700
Vista Home Premium 32bit
14.1 WXGA+ with CCFL backlit w/ webcam (free upgrade :banana: )
2GB RAM
ATI Radeon 3470
250GB 5400rpm HDD (free upgrade :banana: )
CD-RW/DVD
Wifi Link 5300
6-cell battery
THINKPAD T400 / R400 14W PRIVACY FILTER for 1 cent o.o
Total: $928.14 (sigh california tax :cry: )

Is this config worth the $? I've been waiting for deals for like 2 weeks...I was configuring a T400 for fun this morning and I saw a banner that says something like "First 300 customers to call gets 20% off"
I figured 20% off is better than cpp so I jumped on this deal :roll:

Seeing some members got it in couple days make me can't wait :eek:

I just place my order for a T400 yesterday (8/3) at about 4:00 PM Central Time, but I'm starting to get worried about when Lenovo will begin to build my laptop and have it shipped out lol. Classes are starting soon and I hope to be receiving my laptop within about 10 days. After reading a lot of these posts some people are having to wait a long time and face delays while others are getting it within 10 days, which is worrying me because Lenovo still hasn't billed me yet. I know it's still early, but I guess I'll have to be patient and see! The estimate ship date is 8/13. Anyone else recently ordered a T400? Anyone know if a specific part is causing delays? Thanks!

Yea I hope somehng will happen. I really don't want to wait 4+ weeks to get a laptop. I just checked my status now and nothing. The worst part is my iPhone is pretty much my computer right now lol. It's not that bad, but I prefer a laptop! Lol

No. No tracking number here for me too. I'm still waitng for that too. I spoke with a Lenovo representative and they said I should receive a tracking number within 2 business day after I received that email. It's been more than 2 business day and I haven't seen anything. I've read on a forum that some people receive the laptop before they even receive the tracking number. I guess we'll have to call in to check the status or just wait it out and see.

I just received another email from Lenovo stating that it's just been shipped.

Edit: I just checked the status and it said shipped on 8/8/09, but no tracking yet. I'll check tomorrow morning to see if there is a tracking number! I'm so excited!

Same here! I got another shipping confirmation email and got a tracking number on order status page.
From what I see on another forum...the first shipping conformation is for the privacy filter :o
