I remember last year they run OOS on some harddrive, but they still get enough of them to fulfill every order even it takes longer than normal delivery time

I received the same email from Futureshop the next as well. It's like their stock "unexpectedly" went missing?

More likely with all the stress on their servers, the stock levels weren't updating that quickly.

I doubt that happened.

My guess would be that FS knew they only had X units on the shelf but posted X + Y units for sale knowing that those Y units are on order from the reseller or in transit. So, from the begining those Y units were destined to get be OOS; you'll still get the item, but you'll need to give them a bit of time to get their affairs in order.

I saw a snippet on the news today regarding an interview with a FS official who commented that FS's policy regarding Boxing Week is to restock the shelves whereever possible. Their number one priority is to deliver the technology the consumer wants.

It's nice to be informed of the delay - some online retailers will not notify you of any delay until you phone them up and enquire why the shipment is still pending.

Hey what people in this world need to be reminded of sometimes is:
P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E.

We seem to be "now now now". Sure "now" is good, but when it can't happen, and it's not a Life-or-Death situation, knowing that is is being worked on and it will be taken care is what is important.

Personally, any time I'm getting an awesome deal, I don't mind being patient.
"Trade off" is an entry in the dictionary, after all.
