Est time of delivery 12th Feb 2010 emoticon.Surprise.title I think the guy i was speaking to on the phone was saying something about the 1.8 Nvidia graphic card not being in stock hence the delay. I'm also a bit worried now cos the same guy also said that if you upgrade to 2TB then there isn't enough space for dual dvd drives.
Oh your gonna like that. Mine is similar except I replaced the RAM with Corsair dominator and the PSU for a stronger one. Very fast system.
Oh yeah, Love the machine it is super fast and a dream to use. Everything just loads so smoothly. The boot up and shut down time is done in seconds.
In terms of delivery I placed the order online on the 8th Jan 10, received a confirmation email next day saying est delivery would be for 12th Feb.
I actually received it on the 21st Jan. I got the automatic call from the courier service saying that it would arrive on the 20th jan but there was a mess up and it got delayed by a day.
Just a quick tip, the tracking system on the dell site does not seem to work properly. I had to call the courier service who then gave me the correct number
