i couldnt stand it so i called them up. im in phase 5 now! they mentioned that i am in phase 5 for longer than needed due to a backorder on the video cards. I ve noticed everyone configuring the Nvidia for their lappy's and now they have that 100 dollar rebate to buy the ATI so it makes sense. The sales rep said they are recieving the video cards tommorrow and production stage will begin and i'll have my lappy in no time.
Sorry, but I have to get mad now. GODDAMN IT! I just got home (7:25 EST) and as I called, they say they close at 7! Crap! I missed it by 25 minutes. I REALLY hope I get a crazy phase skip today or tomorrow... I want my Alienware!
hey ladies and gentleman..the day has arrived, mine came in some hours ago!!! Haven't gotten a chance to take photos as of yet. get antivirus and basic programs on there for now....Thanks to everyone for getting myself as well as others through this perilous "animal" we "the phase"

hey, chey, make sure you check like twice a day...once around lunchtime givin' em' a chance from the night before to get stuff straight and then again b4 customers service leaves...it might seem like overkill but for the price the of a used car, who cares

I just recieved an email saying i was just now in phase 5 but when i called them earlier today CS said i was in phase 9. which is on time give or take a day. just give em a ring at their 1-800-alienware numba and you might find out different... good luck and remember patience young padawan
