Re: NEW.. Any and all concerns about the new XPS 435/8000/9000

i ordered mine on 10/21..been delayed 4 times to 12/3...GREAAAAT what makes you so special?!

Keeping in mind, my XPS 8000 has not actually been delivered.   I've only received the "It has been shipped" email from Dell.  Purolator is currently reporting my package status as being "In Transit in U.S." with a Scan Date/Time attached to that entry as 2009/11/21 01:26.  No updates since then and it's on its way to Toronto.

From that info, you'll have to decide for yourself whether it is likely to get delivered before the estimated 12/04 delivery date.  Again, my order was placed 11/13.

And if it matters - which it may - I placed my order through my usual Dell business account representative.  Perhaps these orders take priority over the general public orders and jump queues.  Just a thought.

Just remember...

..."shipped" means build is complete, and your PC is boxed and sitting in a Dell warehouse, where it will sit for days until FedEx *really* picks it up.  Initially, Dell just forwards the tracking number to FedEx, and nothing really happens for days.

Well it appears my shipment has made it to the Toronto Purolator sort center after-all.  I expect to have it delivered tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.  Not bad for a 11/13 order.  Looking forward to my new Studio XPS 8000.

It just arrived.  For those interested...

I ordered my Studio XPS 8000 from Dell on Friday, November 13.  Dell emailed me on November 20 that it had shipped.

Here are my Purolator delivery details...

I ordered on 10/20 with a delivery estimate of 11/16. After 2 delays (first to 11/23, then to 12/04) it shipped on 11/18 and was delivered today.  I'll open it over the holiday (with the help of my 3 y.o. - that should be interesting!)

I purchased under our company's Employee Purchase Paln.  Not sure if that helped or hurt me on getting it.

Here's the build:

What patience! I was opening mine up as the Fedex driver was carrying it up the driveway!

I agree. I too had little patience when I got mine and had the blade in hand when the FedEx guy was at the door. That protective tape they put on the computer is a real pain. Be careful when you pull it off or you could pull one of the doors lose like one other person did on the old forum.

Re: NEW.. Any and all concerns about the new XPS 435/8000/9000

I feel like a record playing on repeat over here.

 

Delayed again:

Ordered: 10/23

New Delivery Date: 12/7

 

I can't cancel it now or I doubt I'd be able to get a comparable system before Christmas.

 

Is there an issue with specific processors? I ordered an Intel Core i5-750 processor anyone having similar issues with this processor? Has anyone been able to get a real answer from Dell or other sources?

=========================================

So we called Dell and now have another X-fi card, a new motherboard and a new tower-top I/0 panel coming next week.  I'll post again after those are installed.

Regards,

Howard

=========================================

Thanks, and yes keep us informed about the headphone jack issue.  My suspicion is that the repair tech was trying to swap out hardware for something that is a design issue - that only Dell can fix.
