Industry-wide shortage of processors

Intel is facing higher than expected market demands, resulting in industry-wide supply tightness for their desktop and notebook processors.  While Intel is diligently working to maximize factory output, they expect supply to be short in Q1 and to remain tight through the end of the year. 

Dell and Lenovo, the Universities preferred suppliers of desktops and laptops, utilises Intel processors which means that there might be lead times in delivery.

Dell is however not disadvantaged in terms of supply compared to other IT providers.  Products most impacted by the supply constraints include certain configurations in the Latitude, Precision and OptiPlex product lines. 

It is important to note that these products will continue to be available, though they may be on extended lead time until supply ramps to meet demand.
