Dell published an update on its blog, stating that the XPS M1330 notebook has begun shipping on a limited basis last week. The company also says that large-scale production will start this week and that the XPS M1330 will now start shipping in all regions.
As Lionel mentioned in a previous update, there are some components like the LED display that may add time to an estimated ship date.
Dell provides estimated ship dates using many factors, including the time it takes to ramp production on a new product in our factories worldwide. We use that time to rigorously test our global sales, manufacturing and quality processes and to deal with issues that inevitably come up when we start to build new products in large quantities in our factories. What do I mean by issues? Things like part shortages, technical glitches, simple cosmetic issues, and other unanticipated issues that can arise when you start mass production.
