Dell XPS M1330 and ship date

As I wrote in my first post, I’ve ordered a Dell XPS M1330 about a week ago (June, 29th). This is the configuration I chose:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T7300(2 Ghz, 4MB cache L2, FSB 800 Mhz)
  • Windows Vista Business
  • 3 years warranty NBD
  • 13,3″LED display with webcam (on the Italian site you can’t choose the display without webcam)
  • 2 GB RAM DDR2 667Mhz (2×1GB)
  • hard-disk SATA 160GB 5400rpm
  • nVidia® GeForce™ Go 8400M GS with 128 MB GDDR3 memory
  • 9 cell battery 85Wh
  • Bluetooth
  • mini Intel® Pro/Wireless 3945 802.11a/b/g
  • nylon thin case, 56k external usb modem

Final price, thanks to an interesting discount by the sale manager, is about 1.500€ (2.050$) without 20% of IVA, corresponding to VAT in Italy.

My notebook is in pre-production from 06/30/2007, estimated ship time 07/20/2007. As you can read in this forum thread (36 pages now!), most of the estimated ship times are in august or september: two months is a long time to wait 😉

  1. wow !

    people are buying NOW with ETA in two months ? That’s foolish since in two months from now prices / equipment for a model will certainly change significantly …

    no, buying like that it’s not for me …

  2. I agree with you: if you know before the order that ETA is 2 months, it’s better to wait and place the order in late august or september.

    I’m still hoping that my M1330 will be shipped before 07/20 😉
