    I call my sales rep and politely ask him to expedite things.

    Unless there are shortages (which the OP mentions), any PC ordered over the internet leaves the factory the next business day. The rest of the two weeks elapsed time is 'transportation'. Two half days of 'transportation' is actually moving the box, the rest is waiting in custom sheds or between carriers.

    It's that way in Europe, anyway, and for corporate customers.
