    Ugh, okay. Guess I will have to stick to this POS temp machine, or figure out something.

    Thats good news! I ordered mine end of January! I was expecting it to ship in a few days when the recall came down.

    Ya its good new. I was expecting it on the second week of March as that was what it said when I ordered it but I can wait. The biggest problem is the machine I was replacing didn't last that long

    But hell we can all hope for miracles right.. am I right?

    Good news! I heard that some of the retailers have confirmation that they will be receiving systems next week, lets hope that System76 is one of these.

    I'm not sure what you mean. Per System76's "story", they have to get new CPU's and MB's a few of weeks before they can ship. They have to test, verify, test, etc.. They were supposed to get first articles early February

    If your saying Intel is just now shipping units, we won't see retail machines until April. Thats how I understand the process.

    I hope S76 isn't just going to slam together new and never before seen hardware, install the OS and ship it!

    System76 gets the systems from Clevo or Sager. From what I understand Clevo and Sager received the new Sandy Bridge mobo's around the 14 of Feb.

    When I say they are shipping, I mean that the retailers (system76) are just starting to get the systems. Now I am not sure if System76 is receiving them or not, I just know that OTHER retailers are starting to get the systems. These other retailers still need to install OS's and any extras that the particular order calls for.

    Not a peep...

    I was just thinking of sending sales an email, since we are in the Second Week of March, and I have had an order in and paid for since late January!

    Well I hope they get back to you and the rest of us, kinda hard to justify the amount I spent to the wife when I have nothing to show for it yet
