Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

Rumor, again just a rumor has that dell and others are having credit problems for parts and hence the shortage.

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

If you have any issues or have found any solutions to help get your systems sooner please help others that have also been in this predicament. If you call customer service after a delay often times they will upgrade you to one day shipping, even though it took them three days to actually get it out.

I agree and it took a refund threat to get mine.  They also gave me one day shipping but it took 48 hours for them to get it into the system and too FEDEX.

Well this is the part I don't understand.

I don't have parts = I can sell more because I will lose customers.

They should instead encouraging customers to but other desktops like 9000 but they started to sell 8100 XPS?

Doesn't make sense,

Although this change happened more quickly than normal, no matter when you buy a computer something better comes out within 6 months or so.  You can go crazy trying to stay on top of the market. 

I also agree. While the new system may be an improvement on the previous, I've yet to read any reviews of the new chipset in an actual computer. nimche's link actually said the new integrated graphics did not perform impressively.

I purchased the 8000 after reading a number of reviews from various sources. I got what I researched and wanted. If I wanted something faster or cheaper or with a different processor or MB, etc., there are plenty of alternatives out there. The 8100 is only another alternative. Plus it'll probably take awhile before reviews on the 8100 are published or posted. 

Besides, a similar configured 8100 to mine would have arrived almost a month later (2-4-10) and costing $383.00 more.

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

I see some issues.......

I think we all have to order XPS 8100 instead or they will eventually offer us the same thing. Out of a part in XPS 8000 without knowing when they will be shipped.

All of these delays will end to no where.

 

I just cancelled. Will order a 8100...

I would, but it would cost me over $200 more.

Good luck canceling now and having another long wait for an almost identical model that will cost you more!

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

For those who are waiting on the 8000's and want to cancel and order the new 8100, think about this first.  I would strongly urge you to contact Dell and ask/demand that they send you the 8100 with the same specs and at the same price.  Be firm and persistent and make it clear that you expect them to in good faith upgrade your order to the new system since they have delayed your order so long and you don't want an obsolete system.  Just my thought....

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

I can understand, you have been waiting a lot longer than I have. My order was 12/27 with an EDD of 1/25 that hasn't been delayed, yet.  However, how do you know that they will be delivering the 8100 any more efficiently than the 8000? You just put yourself back at the beginning of the queue again.   I would think cancelling and ordering a refurb from the Outlet would be the safer bet, you know they are built and will ship fairly quickly.
