    I also was looking for a review from anywhere on any tech sites and no one seems to have one either. So I am really thinking that no one has them and we will see people getting them at the end of this week or next week. (hopefully) I didn't even see any on eBay or Amazon or anywhere else besides Lenovo. Mine is set to arrive 3/11 T^T

    I do hope that it ships a lot sooner, as I also have some vinyl decals on the way to put on it. Most notable is this go on the back

    ;D Also a chrome silver Stark Industries logo to go across the top on the front

    I just checked Lenovo regarding my order to see if anything changed...and it hasn't but then it got me thinking on what Released to Manufacturing means...Does that mean that if you buy it from Lenovo, they are built to order?

    Also did anyone get a shipping notice yet? I am (quite very) impatiently waiting for mine. xD

    I purchased the case seperately from the tablet, and my case also said released to manufacturing. They shipped my case off yesterday.

    Hey! Just checked Lenovo's website! My order is now supposed to ship February 18th! It has an estimated delivery of the 25th. Woot! That's a step closer than before. I'll take it. Anyone else's ship dates change?

    Still shipping on 2/28 for me. I placed my order on Feb. 4th though. When did you place yours? Jan. 30th?

    Ok! I just got off chat with Lenovo! Here is the chat log minus my account and order information and my name.

    Bryan : Thank you for choosing Lenovo Chat service, this is Bryan. How are you and how may I be of assistance today?

    GunplaGamer : hello! i am good, how are you?
    GunplaGamer : i am just curious on why it is going to take so long for my ThinkPad 8 to ship. I have an estimated ship date of march 4th when I ordered it on Feb 10th.

    Bryan : this particular machine is being delayed because of quality issues that are being cleared up. Once they are able to complete the build of these machines they will ship out as soon as possible
    Bryan : the estimated ship date for your order is 3/3/14

    GunplaGamer : ok
    GunplaGamer : what sort of quality issues?

    Bryan : I am not sure what the quality issues are

    GunplaGamer : So what you are saying is that they have not built my ThinkPad 8 yet. Or really anyone that have ordered a ThinkPad 8 as I have a few friends that also have ordered one

    Bryan : no
    Bryan : They build the machines once the order is placed however this particular machine is on delay due to quality issues
    Bryan : we do apologize for the delay
    Bryan : I'm not sure about any others
    Bryan : I would imagine that they are all on delay

    GunplaGamer : ok thank you

    Bryan : You are welcome. Is there anything else I can help you with today?

    GunplaGamer : nope that is all thank you!
    So yeah, possible quality issues and confirmation that they are building each of ours separately and making sure each stands up to quality they want to send out. Hopefully it is worth the wait! Grats XboxontheGo3! :) Let us know what you think when you get yours! :D

    Ooo.. quality issues scares me a little. But from what it sounds they probably fixed it. I hope I get mine on the 25th. I'll be sure to give a mini review!

    Yeah, I do like that they are building each one as they order. They are not picking them out of a pile of them and then shipping them off. They are actually building each one, so the one you are getting was actually built for YOU and no one else. It kinda personalizes it :) It gives me the warm feels inside :) But yeah a little weary on the quality issues...but even if they built it for me and something is wrong i will definitely either return it for a refund or an exchange and have them build me another! :P

    Oh explosive0, I think they are releasing the LTE version in the next month or so IIRC

    Agreed as long as it works as it should the wait will totally be worth it.

    Cancelled my order, I'm happy with my DVP8 for now, plus they dropped the price after I ordered mine and didn't even notify me, kind of shady.

    Thanks for that GunPlaGamer. Just to see if I got the same thing, I also chatted with someone. This is what I got from Jeanette when I asked what was taking so long.

    Think machines are literally made to order, so the device is not even assembled until the order is confirmed. once that confirmation is received and the order released to Manufacturing. the parts are pulled, the machine assembled, operating system and chosen software loaded, then it is quality tested, packaged, and shipped. It has to clear customs to leave China, and then again to enter the US.

    I feel somewhat better knowing that they are made to order.

    There are two reviews of the Thinkpad 8 that just came out today. Bing "Thinkpad 8" switch the time to past 24 hours. One from zdnet and another from winsupersite. They both appear to just received their review units. I wouldn't say they are full reviews, in my opinion they are brief. They both mention the build quality being very good. Paul from winsupersite was really impressed by the screen.

    I have been tricked! Tricked I tell you! .... so my Thinkpad was estimated to ship today... welp. I checked it and it now says estimated ship date of the 28th. And Delivery date of March 7th... errr. I'm disappointed. When I checked it this morning it still had the ship date of today and delivery date of the 25th.. It will get here when it gets here I guess.

    I almost cancelled my order to get the 64GB Dell Venue 8 for $250, I mean I would like a stylus so much but the performance and quality is better on the thinkpad, but then saw this picture and unless I'm a pro artist it doesn't matter if I draw with my finger or capacitive stylus... http://cdn.appstorm.net/iphone.appst...d-stylus-5.jpg

    My estimated delivery date is 3/7/14 :S

    Patience!

    This is getting annoying. My ship date just went from 2/28 to 3/3. At this rate, I'll get my tablet in April.

    ack! That's depressing. On the bright side, you'll definitely be "the only kid on the block" with one. (Well, that's not such a great consolation.... sorry)
