Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

Base on Google, Dell webpage with XPS 8100 was updated and running an hour ago. So I am sure they have just put it there.

Ordered 11/29/09     will be at my door tomorrow after three delays...After reviewing the new specs for the 8100 I am thrilled I got this for the HUGH savings I got due to black friday sale....The new chips will be less expensive and with less performance that my i7 860..yes I know my chipset will be outdated real soon but with me upgrading every four tears or so this is not an issue with me...The almost 30% savings I got is just dandy IMO.  The early testing on the clarkdalse chips due not even come close to the i7 860 for what I want it for.

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

Even though this thread says XPS 9000 delays, but since I started reading here there was only one person ordering 9000. So I am not sure what is going on with that. Are you planning to order one?

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

since I love you guys so much here is the link to UK Dell website to build the 8100

http://www1.euro.dell.com/uk/en/home/Desktops/studio-xps-8100/pd.aspx?refid=studio-xps-8100&s=dhs&cs...

I have not done it yet...

 

EDIT: Its totally the same thing except the new i3 and i5 options. I didn't see any big difference. I haven't read the specs on the case itself.

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

I think the 8000s that we are waiting for is the best deal still. Everything looks exactly the same, while i7-860 chip still being the king. Plus I assume most of us got rather good deals on our machines, and these kind of deals won't be easy to come by on the new 8100.

Still patiently waiting. Like I said before, I it gets moved over again, I'll just go for a refurbished machine.

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

I agree. 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.  It would have been nice to at least take delivery on our XPS 8000 before the next model came out, however.  I have not gotten a delay on my delivery date of 1/25, so I am also still patiently waiting.

I just got a delay notice today on my monitor.  The crazy thing was that the original EDD was 1/18, which they upped to 1/11, even though the computer I ordered it with has an EDD of 1/25. Now, they have moved it back to the original 1/18 date, still a week ahead of the computer.

Just writing to inform all....I've been calling everyday for the last two days and my system is now saying shipped. Call them, bug them, email them...shove it down their throats until they get sick of hearing from you. Call often and complain.

Re: XPS 9000 and XPS 8000 delivery delay issues

I ordered on the 1st of Dec with a delivery date of 16 Dec. After getting the email for the first delay (04 Jan Delivery date) I sent an email to Dell stating I wanted a refund that I would buy from their competitor HP.  I received a phone call the next day stating that my issue was elevated and received another call later the same day stating that my system would be delivered on the 18th of Dec which it was.  I am happy with my Dell 8000 XPS except for the memory problem I am experiencing now.
