This is a response to a complaint from last year at this same time. Apparently custom laptop order delays still have not changed. Wish I had seen his post earlier. I would have had second thoughts about ordering from HP. I should have had my laptop by now. Instead it's been delayed, and not expected to ship until after the new year. I'm pissed. At least they could have put a warning of possible delays in shipping. Going to try to get a refund. I will NEVER buy anything from HP again. You have been warned.
