Depends on how fast they ship it out and who the delivery company is that they use. If it is UPS, it may arrive sooner than later, at least that is what I have noticed. If it is say FedEx or DHL, it will probably arrive on the date they give you. If I were you though, I'd go with the Asus. They are better built in regard to reliability and longevity. That's me though (I've had one too many bad experiences with HP's laptops).
