I order the 700m with 1.6g/30g HD/cdr-w dvd/1350/ 8-cell battery about an hr after the 750 coupon went into effect. The status says "boxing" stage for 3 days now. And Dell sent me this email?? WTF!!! How could there be a delay if they are already done bulding the laptop??? I'm sooo pissed!!! NO dancing bananas for me!!! %*&))&!!!!!!

1. From reading here and other boards, it seems that the vast majority of purchasers opted for the combo drive rather than the more expensive DVD+R. Maybe that's the hold-up? They exhausted stock?
2. If you've been at the "boxing" stage (conceivably *after* the kitting, building, and testing stages), your delay makes no sense at all. How can it be delayed AFTER it's already built and tested?

the target ship date is 11-10-04, but i think it will ship before the 31.

Still can't believe just $769 before Fatwallet discount. Go to CC or BB and see what $769 gets you!
As for the 9200, I'm glad I got my order in under the wire on the 9100.

Were you checking the status online before it was delivered? Was the build progress info and estimated ship date close to accurate, or did it arrive on your doorstep ahead of schedule?
