It’s been a long year or so, hasn’t it? Back in March of 2020, we were hoping COVID would long lost memory by now. We mentioned shortages in March and in November of 2020, especially among equipment needed for work from home (laptops and web cams were the biggest trouble spots). And while things got decent for a little while earlier this year, things have gotten messy again. Cisco says things won’t be back to normal until later this year. Various supply chain and manufacturing issues are adding delays to a variety of hardware from laptops, desktops, network switches, processors, graphics cards and more.
The end of the year is only a few months away and right now, laptop delays are putting ETAs into late October and into November for basic laptops. We’re still waiting on several network switches for clients that we ordered months ago, we just received some high end laptops for clients that we ordered back in April.
Basically, things are a bit of a mess right now. If you’re wanting to swap out some hardware in the next few months or before end of year, we recommend ordering now so you will actually have the parts in-hand when the time comes.
