    Funny, I ordered a X61t last night, XGA Multitouch, pretty bare bones. The web page stated 1-2 weeks. In the checkout process, the estimated ship date was 10/08/2007 (yeah right), but the order status web site shows 11/01/2007 (24 days).

    What have folks that have been ordering in the last couple of weeks been experiencing as far as ship times? I saw some other threads that were showing ~9 days, is this still typical?

    I ordered X61T with MT/MV screen on 9/24/07. Ord Status pg. shows estimated delivery date of 10/18/07. However, phone call to customer service last week to verify informed me that it would likely be later in the month because apparently the factory was closed last week for several days. macnmotion

    I recently ordered mine and the confirmation page quoted almost a month wait time. In fact it shipped in 5 days, and travelled from Shanghai to New York in a day.

    Pretty darn quick.

    Thanks.... now I'm just trying to confirm in all of my gyrations last night if I forgot to select Bluetooth in the last go-round. Figured it would show up in order status, conf email, or order status email in PO mode, but I don't see it... Grrrr... 99.9% certain I selected it, but I would really like to see it somewhere. Looking forward to my adventure, this is my first tablet.

    laptop

    I had exactly the same issue. I contacted my salesperson and he ran the order and it was there. Their coding is not as clear as Dells on a new order. I would contact your sales rep.

    Thanks pete, I'll trust that it's probably there, and deal with my disappointment if it's not :) It's not a huge deal, more of a nice to have. While I really enjoy it on my primary laptop for mousing, I suspect I will be doing more with my pen or finger on this device.

    Ordered 10/08/07 - Shipped 10/16/07! Psyched!

    Adding more RAM and sharing my existing DVD multiburner from my T61p.
    Will be getting an 8 cell battery for trips (good idea?).
    Thinking about 7K200 200GB (good idea?)
    Thinking about aftermarket/Amazon.com Turbo Memory (good idea?)

    Wow, I'm disappointed, as I ordered my very similar system on 9/24 and it still hasn't shipped.

    Odd -- wonder what the holdup is? Mine is extremely basic out of the box, I believe all I changed was the NIC and Hard Drive. Did you order the same screen or the HiRes?
