Dell XPS M1330 and Inspiron range of notebooks buyers in the US have complained of delays in receiving their orders. Dell have acknowledged this issue, and have issued statements that blames the delays on the difficulties in achieving acceptable results for the painting of the lids, and was more difficult than anticipated.

Last week, Dell MY website are informing the local buyers that ordering the painted Inspiron notebooks (other than the colors Alpine White and Jet Black) may subject your delivery to be slower by 3 to 4 weeks. However, a quick check today at the same Dell MY website shows no such disclaimer exists when buyers select the color lid option.

Does this mean that Dell MY does not have such delays anymore? Anyone had ordered a Malaysian or Asian Dell Inspiron with the optional colored lids recently?
