But, it'll come! Relax! I assume you got a great deal since you ordered it on May 31, so hang in there! We all are!
I get where you're going with this, but still...
Actually, I tear up every time I read that someone got something comparable for less than $2K. The price that I paid is kind of embarrassing in its excess, but I ordered it on 5/31 so that I could get it and configure it before my trip on 6/27. Cutting it fairly close, I know, but as time was not on my side, I didn't have much choice but to just jump in.
What's frustrating is that people ordering after me have actually got their unit to move past pre-production, whether it be in the build stage or boxing--no matter how far down the line it is, it's still better than the vague "pre-production" status. I'm not angry at them at all--actually, I'm kinda' glad to hear that *some* people are even getting the machine, since that just proves that Dell's reps are lying.
I'm just wondering why Dell had me pay a premium price and then haven't done anything about it.
But in any case, end of rant. Just wanted to share with everyone is all.
