Yeah.. even I am also feeling the same. Should have chosen HP. HP gives laptop on the spot, no need to book the order then wait for 2-3 weeks.

feel disappointed too when i was told my notebook order will be delivered on 21st jan 2010, Dell not what it used to be!!
I guess everyone is angry on DELL these days.
I still dont understand how come such a big company dont have any reserved stock of components. Even the grocery stores also have some reserved stock maintained for emergency purposes. I wonder how DELL works without maintaining minimum stock of components !!!
I wish I had found these blogs before I placed my order. I ordered a DELL Inspiron on the 13th December which as you can guess was a present from Santa. The website showed an EDD of 31st December but I was delighted when I saw my order status show that the unit had shipped on the 22nd December.......maybe Santa was going to make it in time after all!!!! My delight was short lived as I received an automated telephone call advising that the delivery date would be 5th January and I should select either a morning or afternoon delivery. I duly selected afternoon and then tried to follow the progress using the tracking link on the web site. This did not work and told me that the order number and customer number did not match!!!
I called customer support and was assured that the delivery date would be met, and I even called them on the 5th to make sure. So here I am on the 6th January......you guessed it......no computer. Called customer support and they could not give me any information and I was told to call back tomorrow!!
All in all an extremely disappointing experience and I wish I had just went to my local PC World and bought a system. I have been a fan of DELL as I use them throughout my business but the experience has really left me wondering if my trust in DELL as a business partner is not somewhat misplaced..............
I also can't believe that DELL does not have a means for customer complaints........................is this devisive as they would be inundated!!!
Further to my previous... it's been over 24 hours (around 36 IIRC) and no sign of call back I was promised (not really surprised though - have been promised call backs many times but haven't had one yet).
My shipping details have been updated thugh... now saying it was given to a local courier 2 days ago, as it's too late for delivery it'll be at least tomorrow (ie. 3 days since being given to local carrier). I've no idea who the local carrier is, if they mean local as in my city, or local as in a carrier who services here but still has to ship here with that carrier, no indication of when it might arrive, no name or ref number with the local carrier so am stuck waiting indefinitely - which means I can't do other things because I need to be here in case the delivery comes.
In the past I've had good experiences with Dell and have actually recommended them to people.... well, won't be doing that again - probably the opposite!
That's Great Shekhar emoticon.Smile.title
Mine is still in to be advised stage......:emotion-12: when did your status changed?
