Hi guys: I just placed an order from dell for my Motion, I could not resist the 15% off, they must do it on purpose . Estimated time of arrival 4/02/03. I have some time to look for accessories. Does any body have any suggestions. I purchased the 40 gig 512 meg.
I also just reliazed that they were not clear that the wireless card was included. Did anybody purchase the same system from dell? Is the wireless card included? let hope so.
I am open to any coments, suggestion etc.

The wireless is built into the Motion. I recommend the Slip Case. Mine has not arrived, but I believe it will be valuable in protecting the machine when mobile.

It's the 27th in Taiwan. That's my Req Ship Day!!! Woo-hoo!!
I think I'm gonna have the order status page up and continually refreshing it all day (night) long.
Today, I got a 512mb memory upgrade from Crucial ($130).
Tomorrow I am receiving a couple of netgear wireless (MR814) routers (one for work, one for home). Buy.com had a great deal ($50 per after rebate) a couple of days ago.
The excitement is building.

joselacon - Were you able to get free shipping on that?

your ship date is in April? I just checked the Dell website and the 40/512 models had 5-7 day shipping.

oops forget it, found the answer (yes)

yes free shipping and yes the web site says 5 to 7 days but you get an email after the purchase that gives you the date to expect it. I will use the time to see if there is any further discounts offered, I locked in this price but will continue to check until it arrives. ddoligalski, how much did you pay for the router, I don't see the fifty rebate anymore, its only twenty now.

yep, i just placed an order for the 40/512 through Dell and got an April 3 ship date even though the site says 5-7 days. And i picked the 40/512 over the 20/256 because the 20/256 said 3+ weeks. Hm...since shipping dates seem to be the same i'm thinking of switching to 20/256 and putting in 512 megs with the difference.

I don't think it works that way. All tablets are made to order and r shipped from taiwan. it takes the same time time to build one or the other, I think the time frame on dell's web site is wrong on both units. I am going to use the time to see if there r any specials for easter and have dell honor that price, if not just shop around for the accessories. one month is not that much time my birthday is in april so it willbe my birthday present.
good luck with your order.

joselacon -- The routers were a one-day special at buy.com... something they call their "Price Mistake of the Day". (Today its an 80g USB 2.0 external drive for $170.)

My tablet shipped!!! Now it's up to FedEx... though it hasn't shown up on their tracking system yet.

Buy.com, today only, has the Netgear MR814 wireless cable/dsl router available for $39.99 (after a $20 rebate). Great price for a great product!
I actually bought two of these. I am using one at home, and one at work as a simple access point to the companys network. Works great.

Thanks a lot! I needed a wireless router, so this will work well. :-)
