    Hi I'm buying a tx2000z and my build date is March 20th. I was wondering whether the 2 day shipping option (about $54) would be viable or are they rather quick about shipments?

    I'm sort of on the fence about it, but if their shipping speed is anything like amazon's (they pull a Scotty and basically give you a worst case scenario, and then you get it way ahead of the "official" time by like four-six days) I'd rather keep the money.

    Anyone have any examples that would suggest this?

    hp is pretty quick as far as shipping date.
    its build date is the day you will receive your laptop. I ordered 3 notebooks from them before and this is the way they are.

    save those bucks for something else.

    I should have asked this question last week.

    I spent the $54 but I don't feel it was worth it as everyone I have spoken to that didn't upgrade has reported a 2 day shipping time anyway.

    I'm still hoping they ship tmrw and I get it Saturday but I'll likely have to wait till the build date on the 11th.

    My opinion save your money.

    Thank you! Unless anybody has any convincing argument against this course of action I'm going to use that money to get a wireless router instead!

    imjosh, why don't you call a sales rep and see if they can refund it? Just tell em you won't be available when it would come (or something) and therefore 2-day is useless to you..it may work, HP is usually pretty good about that, they don't see the shipping money as far as I know anyway.
