Dell mini 9 shipping problems
If you have recently ordered a Dell mini 9 or vostro from Dell and have had problems with numerous shipping delays then you are probably as ticked off as I am right now. If not, then to give you a quick rundown of the issues, basically Dell has had a LARGE amount of people who recently ordered a Dell mini 9 and Dell vostro due to a sale and the fact that you can turn it into a hackintosh really easily. I have always had problems with Dell but recently my newest purchase from them tops them all.
They have told everyone of us that there are delays with shipping, back orders on parts, and some have been straight up lied to or even yelled at. I have compiled a list of users on the http://mydellmini.com forums with the help of another forum member. If you have had similar issues (even if you have your mini now), please click on http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=rYO12hU0wxL_E5YRStnnSGg and add yourself to the list to get a running toll of how many have gotten screwed by this problem. I know delays are a given sometimes, but from a company as big as Dell to straight out lie to their consumers and make them wait on a laptop that costs anywhere from 200-500 is absolutely absurd. Why doesn’t any of the other mini laptops have this issue?
Some people who have ordered AFTER others have gotten their laptop sooner, some have had to wait since February (3 months from the time of this article), and most have been given 2, 3, or even 4 different deadlines that stretch out to July. This is a major problem and has got to stop.
