What you need to do now is contact them, cancel your order and reorder the new Alienware 18! They probably aren't having 'higher than expected sales' but more likely they have run out of older parts due to the new machines launching recently.

That's just my take on your situation. Nothing like getting the latest and greatest!
After a long wait , My M18x R2 shipped 7/5/13. Earlier last weekI tried to contact ( number of times) Alienware CS support about My order . Fruitless ! Busy -- No answer - No return of message . Not a good start. Called Dell CS to look into hold up. Lots of help there. If I could of gotten a little cut of price for My inconvenience for hold up I would of ordered newer model. After a lot of thinking I stuck with original order. We will see how things work out .
