Canceled my original order of 08/07/08, when I saw that the T9600 had become available again. Same configuration, just with the faster proc, which with the price drop, ended up being exactly the same price as the original order. Reordered on 08/12. Estimated Ship Date: 08/26/08

Edit: Received shipment confirmation today, Last log from UPS was an Export Scan in Guangzhou with two packages scheduled for delivery on 9/9/08.

Edit: From Guanzhou to Anchorage to Louisville took 2 days, another day to clear customs in Louisville, and a 1.5 hour trip from there to the UPS hub here where it was scanned yesterday afternoon. While I was hoping they would try to beat their estimate and put on a truck for delivery today, it didn't happen. Maybe it will still show up a day early on Monday. Should have specified 2 day shipping.

Edit: Posted too soon! Delivered at 9:38 this morning! Now I will happily eat my words... Way to go UPS!

Greetings,

Ordered on 8/5/08 - Few minutes after web site came up for the W500. Original Ship date as 8/25/08, now the ship date is 9/8/08, another two week delay.

I wonder if this is due to the battery as many have suggested? Should it really take five weeks to get a laptop?

Edit: Shipped on 9/1 - Finally - only almost four weeks to get this thing out the door.

I'm pumped, got the SATA II drive bay ready to go with the additional 320GB 7200 RPM ready to be plugged in.......

Edit 9/5 - Received Finally - only a month from the time of ordering.

Shipped 9/1/2008! 4 Days ahead of the original shipping date!

So far it's left Hong Kong, arrived in Korea and left Korea on it's way to the US.

Update: W500 arrived by UPS at 9:00 AM on 9/3/2008--even though I didn't pay for 2 day shipping!

After Korea it went to Anchorage, AK, Louisville, KY and finally to Philadelphia. (Fun watching it make its way through UPS transportation centers!)

I purchased the W500 from an authrized dealer who had one in stock, it (406227U) will be here tomorrow, on Saturday before 10am.

Backto XP Pro for me and thinking it will scream on this machine!

UPDATE: Ordered on 9-11 with shipping date of 9-24 but shipped 9-15, early. Would have been here today on the 16th but Lenovo did not fill out some papers and it is stuck in Louisville at the big UPS terminal. It seems as many laptops as Lenovo ships via UPS, they could do better. Anyway UPS is telling me they do this all the time and that is will arrive in Jacksonville on 9-17 without fail.

Could not go back to XP Pro so gave my W500 to my VP and ordered me a W500 directly from Lenovo.

I have owned a 17" notebook before and . . well never again.

Anyone have any idea if it will really ship before 9-24? I hear their dates are conservative and it could ship sooner

W700 Quad Core:
Ordered 9/4/2008, expected ship date of 9/17/2008, when I ordered, and still showing 9/17 estimate as of 9/10.
Had ordered on 8/14, but wasn't quad core and cancelled.

Plan on 100GB in SATA ultrabay adapter 43R1980 for C: with Vista 64 Ult (eventually to go solid state, once 80GB Intel X25-M is affordable)
Plan on RAID0 of 2 500GB drives for D: data drive (bought elsewhere)
Plan on buying 4GB SODIMM when affordable.

Weird. I ordered a W500 on 08/12, with an estimated ship date of 08/27. This got pushed back to 09/11 and now has pushed back even further to 09/24.

I ordered mine on August 22.

Estimated delivery was September 19th.

It has now been postponed to October 17th.

Has ANYONE actually received a W700 yet??

How long have these been taking to ship lately? Good chance of them getting it out before the ship date, or would that be about right?

EDIT: Shipped today (10/15)

EDIT: Should have been delivered today (10/17), but I missed the delivery (why does UPS deliver at 10 AM on a workday?) I'll call and have them hold it at the depot for pickup.

Looks like the W700 are taking a long time. I got my W500 well before the expected ship date.

Good thing mine's a W500 then. Just realized the order details I pasted in don't say that.

Just yesterday, I was looking around the web for any information on any vendor actually shipping quad core laptops, came up dry. Ship estimate still showed 10/27.

Then, surprise! This morning, 8:20am eastern, I got ship notification, my W700 is on its way to me now, due in Monday October 20th!

I'm trying to get my brother hooked up with my used T61p for AutoCAT LT use in a hurry (to replace seriously ailing T30), but I must admit I'm a little wary that my inbound W700 (on order for months) has a serial# ending in 00s followed by a number under 24, which could indicate it's one of the very first 2 dozen made. I sure hope it doesn't have early manufacture flaws, we'll see! Also hoping it can be upgraded to WiMAX at a later date with installing new antennas, but not a near-term priority.

My new ThinkPad W700 has arrived, 9:53am eastern, Monday October 20 2008.

As expected, first impression is that it's large. All looks good, no suprises, BIOS looks very much like T61p. I added a Crucial 4GB SODIMM thru dedicated memory access panel on the bottom, and BIOS says it finds 6GB total, as expected. Cloning/backing up factory preload hard drive image now, before I do anything else...

I have now moved over to this forum area for more detailed experiences:

And have learned to never nest quotes here again (sorry Admin!)
