    Question Update on the Sandy Bridge Issue?

    I am patiently(well almost anyway!) waiting for my Gazelle Pro to ship in early April.

    I was wondering if you folks had received the new first run MB's and CPU's from Intel for testing?

    Is Intel's initial guestimate of fixing and shipping silicone holding up? Is your guestimate(based on Intel's (guestimate) of resuming shipments in Mid March still good?

    thanks,

    Scott

    From what I have been reading online, Intel has held up with the delivery to retailers but keep in mind it was a limited run and they needed to split that out to all the retailers.

    It would be interesting to know if System76 has received them yet though. I think my old system is going to blow any day now

    Okay, its official the old system has died...

    Here's to hoping that there is a early delivery of my Gazelle.

    The deafening sound of silence from System76 on this issue is not very comforting.

    All this waiting has me wondering if I should have gone with the Serval instead, but the last thing I need to do is get my self into the end of the list and have to wait tell April LOL

    We're still on track to ship by the middle of this month, so only a few weeks. At present, due to the waiting list, if you placed an order today, your computer would probably ship around early April.

    Is there any way for us to know where we are on the waiting list?

    Hi Kacey.

    There is no public way (for obvious reasons).

    When did you place your order?

    You're probably looking at third or fourth week in March.
