Interesting factoid about SoYouStart
Two weeks back, I ordered one of the Opteron servers from SoYouStart. They currently show a 10-day turnaround for the order but, I went ahead and ordered. On day 11, I put in a ticket and was simply told that there was a slight delay. However, today (day 14) I called and spoke to another "customer advocate", who was very polite and honest BTW, and he told me something I didn't know about their process.
Apparently, despite having limited stock on these servers, they don't simply take them out of the ordering queue. Instead, they are still taking orders on them and, when one frees up, they process the order for the next person in queue. In other words, it could theoretically take weeks or months, depending on the popularity of a particularly model, for an order to be fulfilled.
I've submitted a request to cancel this order and to refund/credit my payment.
This might already be a known thing or a common practice but, if you are looking at one of the servers showing as a "10-day" turnaround time, it might stretch well beyond this time frame.
