It was to be expected, the writing is on the wall for all manufacturing.
We've seen, on average, 15-30% increases on items related to technology and Copper already , with no sign of letting up.

I'm so happy I was successful purchasing when I did!

It is really making me think (again) about upgrading. I know a GPU isn't in the cards, but upgrading the rest of the system before the prices get higher, even though I don't "need" it right now, is feeling like it might be a wise choice.

Heh.... I've upgraded all but one of the systems in my house over the last 6 or 7 months. The only system left is my better half's NUC style Zotac Nano which is on a "replace on failure" maintenance schedule.

With any luck, I should be good for at least a couple of years. :)

That was the smart choice. I should have jumped on that used purchase that you and @Sagath were giving me info on, but I didn't. He who hesitates and all that :rolleyes:

It's taken a week for my laptop to get out of China. Just China.

It doesn't surprise me that they're having labour problems overseas too
