Too Late?
« on: 09:03 PM - 07/27/08 »
Is it too late to get in on the first shipment of DIY Kits? I want to paypal some money...but not if I have to wait until after the pre-builts. If that's the case, I will just get a pre-built.

You're probably a bit late for the first DIY kit shipments. Derek said whoever pre-ordered is guaranteed a DIY Kit. You can still order, but there's no guarantee that you will get it in the first shipment. I believe the first shipment had at least 100+ people who pre-ordered. You can still try to order through the store but you will most likely have to wait for pre-builts. I don't know if they will offer anymore DIY Kits when they release the pre-builts though.

Why wouldn't they take any more orders for diy kits. They still haven't even ordered from a fab yet.

They already took orders from fab last week. They will either wait for 2nd shipment or make pre-built units.

Yup. They got the first batch on the 25th. I got a feeling they ordered more than the number of pre-orders. So you may be fine still with getting one from the first batch. It's a guess anyway. The more you order from the fab the cheaper it is per unit per run.

I was hoping for a XIM team member to answer this for me, because although I do appreciate your speculation, it is just that...speculation.
