... hello, my name is Cara and I am the actual buyer of this laptop. I bought it for my parents who live in Chaleston, SC. I was picking it up where I live to bring it to them for Christmas. Since that is not going to happen I must now change the pick up location to any one of the three Best Buys in Charleston, SC. How do I go about getting this taken care of? Is there even the slightest hint of a prayer that I can get this in time for Christmas. I'm Sure this is frustrating for Best Buy also but seriously the selling of this item was very wrong since it did not say it was back ordered when I ordered it.

Cara, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you're not going to get this laptop before Christmas. They're backordered and not available for store pickup. Best Buy will only string you along and pretend to help, so I'd suggest canceling your order and finding a replacement gift. I know you're not going to be able to get a deal that good in time for Chrismas (I know because I bought the exact same laptop!) but Best Buy just isn't going to deliver on this one. Sorry... I hope you have a good Christmas anyway!

(BTW, emailing the social media team email address above will only result in an offer to cancel your order plus a $25 gift card.)

An ETA isn’t currently available for when your order will ship, so I cannot guarantee that you will receive it in time for the upcoming holiday weekend. Our support team is looking into the situation though and we hope to have a resolution soon. If you do not wish to cancel your order, I’d encourage you to keep an eye on your e-mail over the next few days for updates.
Thank you for your patience.

Arron, according to your own people i talked to this afternoon, it's no longer carried and will not be available. Stop giving people false hope. It's never going to getr there.

Yeah, I've also heard of promises for a DIFFERENT item as a replacement, but "not until Christmas day." I hope you have all canceled your orders and found your replacements somewhere that isn't Best Buy!
