time for some building update news...
If you were to order a V600 today then the likely wait will be 7 weeks. I am ordering batches of 100 mostly preassembled boards and finishing them by hand (Memory, fpga and socket). Considering the normal wait for retro items i think this is not a bad turnaround. For obvious reasons i want/need to catch up ASAP to the demand.
As previously stated, a begging letter for cash indicates the wait is not too long for you.
As for the a500, Majsta will release more info when the time is right, thanks for your patience.
(i will be away for a week in April. off to see my daughter who is pregnant, i get to be called grandad for the first time later this year... doesn't that make you feel old).
