Haha yeah, I have 8 Screen Protectors coming from Hong Kong off eBay so hopefully they will arrive in time (I'm not good at putting screen protectors on, but I think 8 will be enough), I'll probably get a case once I order a Prime, but I always have some spare netbook cases that may fit.
Yeah I've been keeping an eye on it a lot so hopefully I'm on at the right time and am finally able to order one.
I'm pretty happy with my grey that arrived! I do like the colour however one of my main reasons for the silver was to hide fingerprints etc which I feel the amesthst/grey shows up a lot worse. Also happy to note that I have no wi-fi issues at all! I realised that the colour is fairly irrelevant too - I haven't put it down much yet to see the back!!!
Sorry if I get anyone's hopes up with this post but has there been any news about the silver since it's now 2 days away from the proposed release date and heard nothing to confirm or deny except that initial email about the delay.
"First units of Gold land later this week or early next week (exact date depends on customs clearance etc) - Dixons Retail and Amazon. We don't know how many back-orders they have so we can't advise whether any stock will be available once back-orders have been cleared first. We weren't aware in Dec that there would be a different delivery schedule for Gold units. More Gold units will follow to our other retailers shortly"
Should we believe what they are saying, as they have lied about Amazon having stock before.
Pretty miffed that the silver version is listed as in stock yet my order from 26th December remains 'not yet dispatched' and there is still no sign of the email from Amazon to confirm the date, contents and delivery method on the date of dispatch as promised in their 13th January email informing me of the delay. Will be interested to know if people buying today get notice of dispatch straight away or whether Amazon are just filling their boots in anticipation of a delivery from Asus. All in all I suppose we should take it as a good sign though. Still glad I didn't crack and plump for the grey one rather than wait.
Update:: I ordered mine (silver) on Feb 2nd. An estimated delivery date was set on Feb 9th for Feb 18th. It was dispatched Feb 14th. Status: In Transit. :) -- Silver available to order again at £499.00. But "Usually dispatched within 10 to 13 months." which I guess is another way of saying "waiting for stock to come in." Hmm.
well after having the tracking information was very impressed that it was put on the boat and arrived on Jersey Monday (sent Sunday). However I have now been slapped in the face by both customs and Paul Davies devliveries due to finding out that customs sat on it for 3 days, got a call to pay the tax yesterday (Thursday) at 9:15am, paid at 9:30am and I STILL haven't had it delivered by 4:30pm. The really annoying thing is I know where their warehouse is, I could drive there in 20 minutes and pick it up for myself. Anyway rant over hope everyone else has been having better luck than me.
