Why is my laptop ship date so far out?

We are noticing the availability of most laptop models are becoming scarcer. This is pushing ship times out in some cases 45-60+ days. recent article  released warning consumers of this laptop and PC shortage, that is largely correlated to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What does this mean for you?

  1. If you were planning to order any laptops or replace current hardware, be aware that the ship dates have been pushed out. We recommend ordering now even if you were intending to wait a few months.

  2. Take a look at the state of your hardware. Be proactive and aware if you are going to need to order/replace hardware in the near future.

It is being predicted that the shortage will continue on throughout 2021, so it is imperative to be proactive. Do not wait until you are already in a bind to order, because it could be weeks before you are able to get your hands on your order.
