Ordered 8/21, estimated 9/4 ship date.

Intel C2D T9400 2.53Ghz
Vista Home Basic (Going to XP or Linux when I get it)
14.1 WXGA+ TFT, w/ LED Backlight, Camera
ATI Mobility Radeon 3640 with 256MB
2 GB (1 DIMM)
100 GB HDD, 7200rpm
DVD Recordable 8x Dual Layer
9 cell Li-Ion Battery

25% off because of Olympics savings + a little bit for University of Cincinnati Discount (Free 2 Day shipping, too) so it worked out to a bit above $1300.

Received a T500 2242-35U on Wed 8/19/08. I ordered a preconfigured in-stock model from CDW.

For those of you planning to go to XP, see my rant thread. Hopefully driver availability will be addressed by the time you get yours.

Mine just shipped.

Does anyone else's say "THE PACKAGE WAS LEFT IN A UPS FACILITY" on the tracking page?

They said my 8/5/08 order was going to ship 8/26/08. Now order is estimated at 9/9/08.

So I canceled my order and placed a new order for a different machine. With the new discounts, I ended up getting a better configured machine for the same price of the old order.

Placed my order on 8/11, scheduled ship date 8/28... just called and they told me my order was now scheduled to ship the week of 9/8... which I take to include 9/8 to 9/13... this is because of a shortage of 6 cell batteries.


I can't figure out why Lenovo would launch a new line of Thinkpads if their supply chain wasn't capable of delivering systems in a timely manner... more than 1 month to wait for a laptop to be built?

I'm curious how long it will really take. The default statement is two weeks... reality is something else.

OK, strange. As mentioned I ordered on 8/31. Something shipped today, no idea what yet. I have trouble believing it's the laptop already.

Called Lenovo, my system is delayed till 9/12 (from 9/4) because of a delay with the 9 cell batteries. It's built and sitting in Hong Kong...just needs a battery. Get a 6 cell if you need this thing before college starts up :evil:

I had a friend who works for IBM who just called to order a new battery for her T60, and was told it would be a month or longer... when she asked why, they told her that two battery warehouses had burned down (they suspect arson.) I'm thinking that perhaps the reserves for older models may be hard to come by in the next month or so as well.

Better arson than thermal runaway!

Well, my shipment is 3.6 kilograms. That sounds like a laptop. How on earth did my order on 8/31 slip out so quickly?

edit: looks like it just bounced through Incheon, Korea.

6 cell batteries seem in good supply (unlike the 9 cell). I bet Lenovo isn't processing any more 9 cell orders until they get a stock in so they're just getting orders with 6 cells through real quick.

Is that what is going on? Makes sense then, I'm just amazed it shipped in just a few days, even if everything was available.

Maybe it's not as bad as I thought, instead of being shipped "by the week of 9/12" mine left yesterday, weighing 3.7kg. Hopefully that extra .1kg is the 9 cell (guessing 3.6kg would be 6 cell (see: emorphien)).

I'm very happy today :D :D :D :D

Just got ship notification on Saturday at 4am... so I guess they sent out the email AFTER it shipped?

Also, I don't know what's happening - the tracking number they gave me says:
Quote:
Shipped To: MISSISSAUGA, ON, CA
Service: Trade Direct Air
Number of Pallets: 43.0
Number of Pieces: 0.0
Shipment Weight: 133.0 Kgs
Description of Goods: LAPTOP COMPUTER
Manifest: 05/09/2008, 0:00
Cargo Ready: 05/09/2008, 14:00
Shipped From: SHENZHEN, CN
Origin Port: CNSZX
Est. Departure: 05/09/2008, 18:07
Destination Port: CAYYZ
Estimated Arrival: 06/09/2008, 12:11

Whaaaat? I don't live in Mississauga, and 133kg is a bit much for ONE laptop computer...

ordered 8/27 arrived today 9/8

T9400 w/discrete
LED
9-Cell battery
ATT 3G
5300 Wireless

The computer is very nice. The keyboard flexs a bit, but it still seems like a great keyboard. The wireless is awesome, I got about 1 block of range with a regular power Buffalo 54g router. Screen is extra bright.

If you order with XP, it comes loaded and boots right up. You don't have to downgrade or anything. Wake from Sleep is quick and re-acquires wireless almost instantly.

Absolutely no noise and no heat while surfing. I changed the bios to integrated. When you do this, you have to download the driver with Lenovo Update. I only bought the discrete chip for ease of resale.

This is the best Thinkpad I have owned.
