when we order a laptop from website, is it being built in china and then shipped here.. is this why often brands can't guarantee a delivery date in the beginning of the order?

    The basic hardware is built in China (usually).  They are shipped to facilities usually in the US or at least North America.  From there, when you order one, I would expect that install the config you wanted (adding Hard Drives, RAM, etc), test, then ship.

    Put another way, the components are made in China and ASSEMBLED in north america
