    Default HP Estimate Shipping Time Accuracy?

    Hi. I ordered my HP 2500t on September 2 the estimated ship day stated was September 11, 2007. I also opted for 3 day shipping. How accurate do you believe are the dates given? Does anyone force any back orders on the model?

    Thank You

    Unfortunately nobody can give you an accuracy rate, it just depends if any of the parts you chose for your HP 2500t are on backorder or not, and various other variables nobody can predict.

    Generally they over estimate the ship dates but if there are any part delays then it might push the ship date or ship right on the est date as well.

    BTW the 3 day shipping is not really worth it. The regular free shipping usually takes less than that.

    yeah, dude, u screwed yourself buying that 3 day shipping, they automatically upgrade it to 3 day for all orders (almost always)

    From my experience with HP, having bought 3 laptops from them, you should never pay for the upgraded 2 day shipping because you get it anyway. Every time I've purchased a laptop from them its shipping only took 2 business days and I've never purchased the upgraded shipping. So for future buyers of HP, never pay for the upgraded shipping, because you will get it anyways, they just do that to try and make some more money.

    For the time they estimate to build it:
    HP always gives themselves extra time in case of a shortage of parts or any complications that might arise. From my experience and having heard from others, most of the times you will have already received the laptop before the estimated ship date they give you. The last laptop I ordered was on August 27 and I received it on the 5th, where the estimated ship date when I bought the laptop was the 10th.

    If it was shipped out today you should receive it no later then Thursday, but most likely you'll receive it on Wednesday.

    The last couple times I ordered a laptop from HP I received it a couple days before the estimate ship date. I can only hope this happens for all of you and for the laptop I ordered last Wednesday on Sep 5th, the estimated ship date is the 14th, but I'm hoping to get it by Friday this week.
