I've experienced delays from IBM, Dell, HP and such.
Yes, it's bad out there.
I tried to buy a Gateway Notebook. Nothing crazy. Added some memory, a bigger screen, and a better graphics card. Was told 2 weeks, fine. After 2 weeks I got a e-mail saying 2 more, then 2 MORE 8 WEEKS to build a NOTEBOOK? I obviously canceled my order, and will tell everyone with in earshot of my experience. I even went so far as to write the president of Gateway, and what a surprise, I got a form letter back. saying sorry for the trouble, please shop Gateway again.
Has anyone else had anything this bad happen?
