    Did you use the "Internet Reference Number" from the acknowledgment email?

    Because, when checking my order status, i'm not sure if it's the same as "Online Reference Number" when using it as reference, mine doesn't seem to work.

    Or i might have to wait a bit longer.

    Yeah, it says "Internet Reference Number" in the email, but you put that in the "Online Reference Number" field on the site. It took a day and a half before the system recognised my number and showed me any info. Don't be too worried if it doesn't work for a bit.

    Me too hey - though I had it delivered to work, and the box is a little big to carry through 20 minutes through the city and home on the bus - looks like I'll be driving back in again when I get to the bus stop this arvo :lol:

    Ordered one Tuesday. Got the phone call yesterday. Delivery on Friday :)
    Was estimated on or before the 28th so that's pretty quick.

    Sydney suburbs.

    placed an order on monday night and still haven't seen an order confirmation from them yet. I called them up today and found out the guy taking care of my order is on training, so i won't hear back till tomorrow. Sucks having to wait so long for them to even confirm that my order will be processed.

    But you know what's the problem, i called the Dell delivery department and it stated that the on-line reference number is 6 or 8 digits.

    And guess what, mine is 9 digits so WTF?

    Just found this thread over on Whirlpool, has a bit of the background on how to track your order with the individual courier: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=907848.

    Worth a look I reckon.

    In other news, mine is with the local courier apparently. Checked using the Startrack Express site and it's still in Sydney.

    Ordered one today through the small business section for $349, in the home section it's $399.

    Got the order confirmation email in about 2min, hope the rest goes as quick. Paid with CC.

    Should be sweet Alba, based on people's delivery dates you should get your screen on Monday or Tuesday :) (Fingers crossed).

    Hope your right DM, though it doesn't worry me if comes in later. It's only to upgrade the 22" in my cockpit. Was going to get another 24" asus but this dell at $150 less is hard to resist.
