I'm going to assume it might take them a week to a week and a half to get the credit charged back (the bank alone usually takes a few days). So I'm not getting antsy yet. It's just a lot of money to be sitting on my card, you know?
BTW -- I got my Dell. I haven't had time to do anything with it as I got in late last night. The only thing I did was turn it on, install 3dmark05, and run the benchmark.
Tonight I'm going to reformat and get all the TONS of Dell overhead programs off of it and go with a bare min op system. I'm also going to update the drivers. In theory this should push me above 7000.
I'm very happy! In case none of you have seen the XPS m170's, they are actually very nice looking machines. I'll try to get some high-rez photos up of it to post on the dell forum and I'll link it to you guys in this forum.
