Can't see it online? There is a bit of a delay due to demand. I'm hearing 4-6 Week delivery after order.

They are trying to fulfil the demand in US and Europe first. Mine took a month to arrive via NZ store when it was listed here and I ordered 2 days after launch here which was on 26th December. Every time, I rung their support team, response was that they are having difficulty sourcing the LCD display for this model. I managed to convince the NZ/Aus manager to put me in the queue ahead of US customers who had been waiting for close to 2 months. Got mine soon after :-)

I guess they are still short on the LCD panels and NZ is not a priority for them right now given the price listed here which was $2600 incl GST

I've tried the Samsung touch screen laptop - it's a bit hit and miss - have to apply a lot of pressure ...

the ipad on the otherhand - very smooth

so you reckon the Lenovo is as good as ipad?

Really?? I've got the Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook here right now for a review and I find the touchscreen exceptionally smooth! No pressure needed whatsoever.
