try this...

stole this from SD

To check the status of your system, even if you have not received a confirmation email from Dell do this:

Click here: http://support.dell.com/support/order/status.aspx

Click the link that says "Don't Know Your Order or Customer Number?" Fill in the information as requested.

This will give you your customer number and order number. Return to http://support.dell.com/support/order/status.aspx and enter your order number for step 1 and your customer number for part 2.

:D Oh wow! I was getting ready to let you guys know that a day or two ago I got a response from the email that I had sent the eprize fulfillment people saying that I had indeed been approved,when the phone rang and the answering machine picked it up...I heard, "this is UPS calling about the delivery of your Dell order..." I rushed to pick up the phone and it was a recording that started rapidly spouting out my tracking number! EEK! I grabbed a pen and wrote it on my hand :eek: Geez the one time I pick up the phone,and the machine stopped recording! Anyhoo...I never have gotten an order number/email from Dell,but according to the UPS website it is supposed to be delivered Monday! YAY! So, for all that were starting to doubt hearing from them, there is still hope. I won on the 6th of August and I, this week, just heard about my approval AND delivery. Good luck to everyone still waiting and thank you to everyone who has had to listen to me on here the last month! :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Just to let ya know, my laptop did arrive. It is very nice and my son is LOVIN' it! :) He is the main reason I was trying to win it,as we had saved up for a long time and had gotten him a Dell laptop last April for his birthday,and it was smashed by an SUV (Loooooong story). We had no money to replace it,and did not pay for the 'accidental insurance coverage' - so it had been a total loss.Dell said he would have been the poster child for their accidental insurance coverage,Which I am now going to check on purchasing for this one.Anyhoo,my son is a good kid,and I really wanted him to have a replacement....but he has to share! lol

I think I'm going to have a problem with them sending the XPS 1210 to me, though, because I'm in the military stationed overseas And most companies hate shipping ANYTHING to us. We'll see...

I was right, they wouldn't ship it directly to me. My new, FREE M1210 is now in my father's hands and he's putting in in the mail to me today!

Another 2 weeks and it'll be in MY hands. Won on 15 August, received Nov ?28?

Can't wait.
