Lori: Hello and Welcome to HP USA presales mobility and wireless chat!
Lori: Thanks for waiting! How can I help you today?
you: Hello. I am very much interested in the nc8230 laptop that has been listed as "coming soon" on the HP website for about a month now. When will this laptop be available to order? When will it begin shipping (specifically the WUXGA screen models)?
Lori: Sure, I would be glad to help you with your questions today!
Lori: The nc8230 is due to be available for purchase in March. We have not been given a date yet.
Lori: It will start shipping shortly after.
you: With all due respect, March can be tomorrow, or 4 weeks from now, any idea whether it is early March or late March?
Lori: No problem. I understand this model looks really good and I wish I could sell it right now. At this time we haven't been given much information accept it will be March. I feel it will be towards the end of March.
you: Ok. Thank you very much for your help. I presume there may be a parts supply issues or final tweaking going on. I guess better be late than be released prematurely...
Lori: That's very true.
