Two days ago Lenovo sent me email saying some or all of my order shipped. Although the Lenovo order status website still shows a ship date of 27 October 2008 for all four "pieces" (computer, mini-dock, case, hard drive Ultrabay adapter), the mini-dock arrived this morning 22 October 2008.

I have the mini-dock, hard drive Ultrabay adapter, battery and power brick (size of a brick too)

But no W700 yet. Sigh

What size is the Power Brick compared to the Power Brick on your T61?

The W700 Power Brick really is the size of a standard red brick

170 watts of power.

I opened the box and it's NOT a ds. I either ordered wrong, or was shipped the wrong unit. I'm going to track that down now. Sorry for the false start, guys.

Does anyone know how UPS works? I have been following my new W500 since it left China. It has been in Anchorage for 2 days with no movement. Originally the UPS site said scheduled delivery was 3/5/09, now it says nothing and tomorrow is the origianlly scheduled date.

UPS never ceases to amaze me with it's penchant for errors. I too was following my W500 from the time it left China. And I was using both the online tracking system, plus calling in just to double check. To make a very long story short, the "delivery date" on mine changed no fewer the 7 times in a matter of just two days. I got conflicting info from web tracking vs. phone tracking. As recently as this morning (3.4.09) mine was set for a delivery date of 3.11.09, according to both phone and web tracking. Yet just 30 minutes later it was delivered to me. Now you know why I choose FedEx whenever I ship something.

Cheers...

Well after I posted the UPS question, I checked again and suddenly they updated 3 stops. It went form Anchorage to Louisville to Charleston to Miami in just 2 hours. Not bad Huh? PS, it was deleivered to me just an hour ago, the original date promised. What good is a tracking system if it doesn't track in real-time?

Good question. I don't know as I'm not familiar with shipping times in your area. Yet that said, they usually arrive pretty quickly after the status changes to shipped.

I got the shipping notification on Friday, August 21. Later that evening, I could see that it had left Hong Kong.

I received it on Monday, August 24 (I had opted for the $25 two day delivery).

It had gone from Hong Kong, to Anchorage, to Louisville, to Phoenix, to Long Beach, and to Cerritos.

So I ordered on a Sunday and received it one week from the following Monday (8 days). Very smooth transaction and shipping.

Awesome laptop! I had only one issue: Cisco VPN would not work with the Intel 5300 with PAN wireless. I finally found a thread in some other forum that mentioned the same problem and said that using an older driver for the Intel 5300 would work. I did that and it worked perfectly.

I ordered the WUXGA screen and Windows came setup for 120 DPI. It looked OK, but I set it back to normal (96) and it looks great.

Fully loaded W500 4058CT ordered on 8-25 and just got an email on 8-28 that it has shipped! I knew it would be here way before the extimated shipping date but with two day shipping, it looks like it will be here early to mid next week!

Agreed. I ordered my W500 on 8-28 and I just got notice that it shipped today. Now I just need to unload my T60p (wife won't let me keep all my toys):( .
