Mine was shipped UPS too... Wonder why yours was Fedex? That sucks.
Maybe Fedex is west and UPS is east??? I'm in NC, east coast, not sure where you are. (except I don't actually live along the coast, but the state is on the coast... or off the coast... you know what i mean!)
I got my dell skin today, from their free skins promotion (http://www.dellskin.com/epromo/dellskin/index.shtml
if all you e1705 buyers haven't gotten the email yet!). It is totally huge! I can't wait to see my laptop!!!!
I got the 3D Experience skin. I like it! It has lovely shades of blue and green with the orange in the middle and the 3D pattern in the corner... That tiny picture on the website just doesn't do it justice, and I thought I could see a lady's face in the tiny picture but no lady to be found! I guess that's a good thing, although some people might want a lady's face on their laptop skin. But yeah, it's just a cool design, no shape or form to it - that's how i like it.
But seriously, like... It's big. I definitely just lost all my worries about the laptop being 8 lbs, because if the screen is this big, I don't care how heavy it is. Okay so I wouldn't want to go with something 18 lbs like... say... the XPS M2010! That thing is wayyyyy too big, it's a desktop, not a notebook and certainly not a lap
top! It looks good quality too, the skin I mean. And it shipped with a cardboard insert so it didn't come as a crumpled-up ball
, so no worries there for anyone who hasn't gotten theirs yet. Anyway, I have yet to see if I will like the plain look better than this skin, but I like the skin by itself so far. Now to see the actual laptop.
One more thing, I sent a request to UPS asking if they could ship at a different time, noon to 4pm, I'll let everyone know whether they honor my request or not... Says it'll take them a business day to respond so hopefully they'll get it tomorrow morning and have time to change the time frame. I'm sure they will probably be able to do this, but if not then my mom might not be here to sign for my laptop and I'll have to wait til Wednesday maybe.
