***NOTE As a result of the current worldwide chip shortage, computer deliveries could be delayed for up to 5 months. Computers can still be ordered, but we ask that you plan for a longer than usual delivery to USM from the manufacturer. Estimated delivery dates are generally given from the manufacturer when orders are placed. We expect ship dates to be very fluid until chip production catches up with the demand.
This is not just computers, but anything that uses technology such as appliances, TV’s and even automobiles. ****
