NOW I JUST MIGHT CALL: I checked my laptop order on Dell's website this morning and was pleasantly surprised to see that it had finished "pre-production" and was nearing the end of the "production" line. According to Dell there are four stages of production: Kitting, Building, Testing and Boxing. My laptop is currently in "boxing."

So why is it still in "boxing." How long could it possibly take to put a laptop into a box, print out the label and leave it in the corner for UPS? They still estimate it'll ship 3-16 and arrive 3-18. I could probably help Dell out here. I'm not all that business savvy, but maybe you could cut down the time it takes to put the laptop in the box from 5 days to, say, an hour.

I want my toy.
