We have been made aware via suppliers and manufacturers that there is a worldwide shortage of Intel Processors due to high demand, which is causing a backlog and delays. Due to this, stock is being procured by large companies and prices are rising. We are currently estimating 6-8 weeks delivery lead times for new orders. If your school requires any urgent replacement of equipment, please let us know as soon as possible and we will try to source limited channel stock. In the meantime we will continue to monitor and seek alternative sourcing routes.
