Between cart and confirmation, shipping date jumped by 5 months. Why?

Hi everyone,

I very recently shopped and purchased a ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 CTO. In the cart, the approximate shipping date was ~3 weeks out.

Delivery between 09-27 to 09-29

However, once the Order was confirmed, it jumped to ~5 months.

Est. Delivery 2024-02-25

That is, said nicely, misleading at best.
Is it common? Why such a jump? Anything I can do to speed this up?
I'm thinking of cancelling...

Thanks,

  • Sounds like a significant supply chain issue.  There have also been shipping time issues on Reddit.  This is also a bigger issue caused by things like soldered memory where you can’t just order a lower-spec system and update it once it arrives.
