It depends on where you live and what you buy from them.

Normally around 1 week for me.

Off season = 1 week or less.

Back-to-School / Christmas Rush = 2-3 weeks.
Got mine in 12 days in August which was pretty quick at that time. :razz:

I think it really depends on what you buy and where you're located.

For example, if you want to buy something simple like a USB flash drive that they have in stock at their warehouse in Mississauga or something, it might take just 2-3 days to package it and get it shipped to you if you live in the GTA.

For bigger things like actual computers, you can probably expect to get it within 2 weeks or so since they have to assemble and ship it from their factory in Malaysia or wherever.

That's how it's been for my experience anyway.

I've ordered 2 different laptops from them. The first one came in about 4-5 business days. The second one took about 10 business days. So I guess it really varies depending on what you order and where it's shipped from.

For a mouse it took something like 2-3 business days.

For a monitor, closer to a week.
