Well, I can tell you my order process. I called Dell last week to see when it would ship. The sales guy said he'd call me the morning it went out. I got a call at 9 AM EST this morning, but I had a few questions regarding compatability with my video card (BFG 6800GT). He called me back this afternoon with the answers and took my order...he also gave me the discount posted on the site. He said it would ship within a week. Sure enough, 2 minutes after I hung up, I got an email with order confirmation and a link to the order status. Says estimated ship date of the 7th.
