I could get a 9200 shipped much quicker... and I could probably get it with the DVD/RW drive AND save alittle $$.
any advice? is the RAM speed and graphics from pci-exp. the only main differences between the 9200 and 9300? oh and I would get it with the UXGA tru-life display.
Whoa cowboy! You're getting excited and you'll just make yourself unhappy. Just be patient to get what you want. April isn't so bad. Crushed expectation is what is bad and that makes all of us upset. Most of the time Dell ships early. The 9300 is new and all of us have inundated them with new orders. Could be a million ligitimate reasons why you don't have yours. Maybe it failed testing, who knows. We search countless hours for the machine we want and then when we finnaly decide to place the order we want it yesterday. Human nature, we're all like that. But those who are getting theirs are very happy. Don't miss out on that over a few days. Just think of it as building charater.
