Other laptops on the Lenovo site also say "Ships within 3 weeks". So looks like that may be how they operate more than any backorder or slowness on this particular model. I haven't ordered from them so I don't know if you really have to wait 3 weeks or if the keyword is really "within" which can mean they ship in 1,2 or maybe 3 weeks. They may be all build to order.
Hey dcwilbur, I almost bought this laptop but noticed that the ship date was extended to 4-5 weeks and I will have failed out of my programming class without a computer by then. Just out of curiosity, could you let us know here when your order actually ships? Thanks!

My order was placed on 9/29 and is showing an "expected to arrive" date of 10/14. I'll post when it arrives.
