Timeline and Supply

Global supply of raw materials, chips and the other components used to build Chromebooks is extremely constrained. At the same time, Chromebook demand from schools across the country (and world) has hit unprecedented levels. Additionally, the global logistics situation (cargo shipping and air freight) is far over capacity, resulting in delays across the supply chain. All this is to say that the supply situation is dynamic and changes daily.

CTL has allocated thousands of NL71TW units for MLTI orders which are targeted to ship later this summer. Orders will be fulfilled in the order in which they are placed. Orders placed after our available allocation is used may be shipped later in 2021/2022. CTL is committed to transparency around shipping ETAs. If you would like to discuss shipping ETA, please book a meeting with us here.
