The excellent Toshiba M35S456 is also being sold out on clearance so people are frustrated getting that also.
If you waited to order past the back to school period (July - September) you are at the period where many replacement models may not be out until closer to Christmas or in many cases even next year (when updated Pentium M chipset and specification -- Alviso or Sonoma) will be released (that will have faster memory than the current PC2700 and a new chipset to enhance the abilities of the currently released Dothan Pentium M CPU's.
I agree....i am having similar troubles. I would like to get the 2025....but got the same response from Acer...'not our problem, see a retailer'. but the retailers arent stocking their items.
PS If you know where I can get the Acer 2025 or its replacement model...PLEASE let me know
