Well, as some of you know from a earlier posting, I ordered a new e1505 from dell. I got it today from ups. I answered the door,signed for it, and took the box into the house. I was frantickly searching the house for a knife to cut the tape with and finally found one. Just as i cut the tape on one end, I hear another knock at the door. I sat there for a second debateing weather i should answer or continue opening the box like a kid on christmas morning. I decided to answer. To my surprise, there stands the ups man with another dell box. My first thought was that there was two seperate boxes for this thing for some reason. As i carry it into the house, i note that it feels the same weight as the first box. Then i think "no way". I quickly cut both boxes open and look into both at the same time. I squeel like a little girl. I suddenly have two E1505's in front of me. I immediately check my credit card, which was only charged for one. I then call dell, and tell them what happened. They tell me they have no record of me getting two, just the one. I ask the guy what i should do. He checks his records more, but finds nothing on the second one. Finally, after 30 minutes, he tells me "Just consider yourself lucky on behalf of dells mistake and enjoy your new notebooks". I ask him numerous times that if dell finds out about this mistake, will i be charged for the second one. He assures me I will not, because they have a state of the art system, and he says besides, there is no record of it. Just in case, i got his name and employee id. I just about had a accident in my pants after hanging up. How often does this happen? Anyone know? Also, after further examination, both systems are identical spec's and all.
