Had a delay in one of my CTO laptop builds. It was rectified by making a
few sacrifices and choosing a stock item that was available via disty

We ordered that last 100 or so with SSD hard drives, apparently the cause of
the delay. They also were late in informing us of the delay, because
apparently all of the mfrs go on hiatus at end-of-year. Even the Chinese!

So, apparently config-to-order is a no-no from Dec 1 through January?

Anybody have an experience that confirms or denies this?
