In an earlier post, I mentioned that back on the 8th of June I ordered a laptop from Dell and that I also ordered a Mac laptop on the 10th of June. Both had similar configs and identical shipping preferences, but the Mac got to me first on June 16th.

It’s been one week with the new Mac, and I’ve been happily running Windows 7 and Vista under Parallels and running the latest Ubuntu and assorted miscellaneous server images under VMware Fusion. All this in addition to the usual Mac software I’ve had installed on my previous laptop.

The Dell was supposed to ship on June 24th. Today the status changed to say the new and improved estimated shipping date is June 30th.

Over three weeks to get a laptop? Dude! Not funny!
