    Decided to cancel my order. The early impressions don't sound all that great and I'm tired of the shipping delays.
    I'll just stick with my HP Envy X2 for now.

    :(

    Are you based in the US Matt? If you guys are seeing further delays, we probably won't have a single TPT2 here in Europe until the end of Q2 :(

    Crap :(

    I just priced out the Dell Latitude 10 as an alternative, and we'd be looking at upwards of 850€ (vs. 549€ entry price on the TPT2)... so we're pretty much SOL here in Germany with regard to 10" Atom tablets.

    Wow, these guys are run by a bunch of monkeys. I've had a pending charge on my CC for 2 weeks, suddenly today it disappears. I call Lenovo and the guy says he can't pull up my order for some reason and has to research it and email me later. I haven't been able to look up my order on their website at all and they keep telling me the website has technical difficulties.

    Tis makes me very fearful of their customer service if anything ever goes wrong with it. If my order got lost or canceled I'm done with this company.

    If you're in the US, Thinkpad post-sale customer service is handled by IBM and is great.

    Just received my slim case today and realized it uses hard plastic rails to hold the tablet in place. Had bad experiences with these in the past actually causing damage instead of preventing. Not sure if I want to even take a chance with this when the tablet arrives. Will probably return and keep searching/waiting for soft fabric or leather solution.

    Any chance you could post a picture of those rails you mentioned. Would really appreciate any close up photos of the slim case.

    Thanks.

    Here are some close ups of the plastic "rails". It's difficult to see in the pics, but they have a slight lip at the ends to hold the tablet in place.

    Ordered mine from newegg with next day shipping. Trying to cancel my original order with Lenovo, but it seems it's not possible until tomorrow. Anyone know a way to do this earlier?

    This is unbelievable, I went to the Newegg site and they show as "In Stock" why would Lenovo delay shipping orders to consumers that have been awaiting their product to be shipped and deliver to NewEgg first....unbelievable....This company knows nothing about customer support/service.

    Presumably because Newegg is ordering hundreds and you are ordering one. I would rather they keep their big customers happy so they can keep the price low. Also Newegg probably ordered first.

    That said, it would be nice if there was a little more planning on Lenovo's part so we could know this before hand.

    I ordered on 12/19 as soon as Lenovo posted a link. I would have ordered 10/26 when Win 8 launched if I could've. The only thing I got for ordering "early" was an inflated price! I paid $729 only to have Lenovo drop the price to $699 within days of accepting my order & long before I receive my TPT2. I'm sure Newegg isn't paying anywhere near what Lenovo is charging me either. So as for keeping the price "low" Lenovo can kiss my behind cause they took me for $781.85

    So it's ok to shaft the "little guy" cause he isn't placing a mega order and places an order as soon as possible? What comes around, goes around I guess. I have never ordered any product from Lenovo before and never will again. I only decided on this tablet because it was the only one that had all of the features I wanted. So instead of building brand loyalty, they have put a bad taste in my mouth by overcharging me and maintaining almost nonexistent communication about when I could place an order and then after ordering when they would ship my order.

    Thanks for pics & info. I will be refusing delivery of the slim case based on you experiences. I appreciate the tip about previous cases.

    On the other hand I guess I should just try it and see for myself how it fits. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
