RE: Do you really think that anyone could have predicted and unprecedented demand on basically EVERYTHING, that Covid had introduced to the world?
Well then you must have one millions on your Vegas bet, being the only genius that did. LOL
Acorn, once everyone started working from home last spring, the surplus or maybe the supply, was hit hard with all the demand of PC's for the home workers and school kids.
Couple that with factories working at reduced capacity it was a downward spiral. Now you have graphics cards requiring some remaining silicone, console games slated for launch, Apple having a time slot, etc.
You can bet they cannot build them fast enough right now. The whole bot situation is out of control for sure. I just had a topic regarding warranties and make note that a scalped CPU very likely won't have a warranty.
