I'm curious about the time it took from order date to delivery date for those of you who have received your laptops.
How long did it take? I'm stuck with a two month delivery time on an XPS 16 assuming they ship it.
Ordered mine on 9/25, and was given an estimated arrival date of 10/22, which was moved back to 10/29 about 2 weeks later. It shipped on 10/22, and was in town on the 27th. I think some people ordered after me but received their laptops before me. But that may just be because I chose different hardware options than they did.
My only complaint is that my laptop shipped with Vista on it. I think that any PCs or laptops that were scheduled for delivery on or after the 22nd (Windows 7 release date) should've at minimum included the Windows 7 update DVD.
Let's try this again. My first attempt got unceremoniously deleted because I inadvertently used a naughty word. Hilarious! emoticon.Confused.title
My 1557 arrived yesterday. It came with Vista installed, so I had to order the Windows 7 upgrade. It should arrive next week. I will wait until then to properly set up the system. It does have an eSata port on the left-hand side.
First impressions after a couple hours: the fan seems to run a little more than the fan on my old Inspiron E1505 does. But there was probably a lot of "stuff" going on behind the scenes (downloading Windows updates, virus updates, java updates, etc.). The keyboard layout is different than my E1505, so I will have to get used to that. The laptop seems to be cooler to the touch than my E1505 gets. I removed the Vista sticker from the keyboard area, and now I've got leftover stickum I'm trying to get rid of.
Here are the pics I took:
Great pictures PRT940! Well mine finally came in. Though it has Windows Vista, I have to admit I’m very pleased. I opted for the 1080p screen, SRS sound w/MB, 500GB HDD, Bluetooth, Wireless B, G, N, and blue ray R/ DVD RW, ATI Radeon HD 4570 512mb Dedicated, 4GB DDR3 1333mhz. No Microsoft Products of any kind, and no Virus software since I own those products already. I went all out and got the 3 year Dell Total Protection Plan w/ Lojack. My goodness was that expensive. I hope it ends up being worth it! Windows 7 is on the way now that I’ve registered, but now I’m not in as much of a hurry as before. My sub woofer is working fine and the Intel i7 processor just kills my HP DV4040 laptop in speed and performance. I’ve been watching other posts for the Studio 1557 and some people are getting run around in circles with the problems they are experiencing. Mainly Sub Woofer issues but it looks like they may have that resolved soon. It’s been great posting here. Maybe we will catch one another on a different post in the future. My Best, AEROCASH.
Ordered mine on Nov 4 - all the while I was building the order, it said "expected ship date Nov 11" - then when the order was final and placed, that jumped to Nov 27. Hmmm. If I'd known I'd wait about a month (probably more with the holiday in there), I might have ordered differently. I probably would have been happy without the i7 processor, but when I equipped the regular 1555 with everything I wanted, it just wasn't all that much cheaper than the allegedly faster i7. I've been buying computers for enough decades to know that the pricey new "shiniest evar!" processor will be old hat 6 months from now, but I just wanted a FAST laptop.
Win 7, 4GB 1033, 1080p, 320 GB, Bluetooth, Intel b/g/n, 9 cell + 6 cell battery, 2 year "home service" plan.
