here in the UK we are still awaiting for Amigakit to open their sales.....


This sucks really. It's like we are being penalised because of the weak pound and AmigaKit's increased interest in exporting at the moment due to this! Make hay while the sun shines I guess?

Didn't trevordick say like a year ago they had a stock already built (the same for "Tabor")?

I thought it was "launched" in November last year, so it's a little odd if they aren't really selling it this far into February. Can't even find it in their web shop...

Yes, people have used Amiga on the Lake in the U.S. and had delivery. The only downside is that it seems they have had to source their own Fractal 3300 cases and they seem in short supply in North America and have now run out! So no Boing Ball door for the Yanks then

The same stretegy as used for the X1000 distibution is in effect. Collect pre-orders from direct UK buyers and foreign dealers and arrange future 'batch production' accordingly. The moment they are available on the website is the moment interest from those expressing a pre-order interest is drying up. This is strange though because they did have such a stockpile of boards! I guess it's the complete systems that are taking a long time to assemble. The foreign dealers are able to have them early because they are offering to help assemble complete systems as well as sell boards on their own and hence speed up distribution worldwide. Clever and less risky for AmigaKit.

I guess AmigaKit could offer boards only right now but the margins are made from the complete systems so they're prioritising the dealers as a sweetener for the help with assembly!

I pre-registered my interest back in July when the information on A-Eon's website changed to allow pre-registrations since then I and a few others have not heard anything.

And before anyone else asks..... yes we have been attentively checking our junk email folders too for a link to click on

Weird!? I'd say they are struggling to build complete systems/source all the bits (maybe the Fractal 3300 is hard to find here too?). It is a lot easier to just sell the motherboards so fair play they still want to build and test complete systems. I guess they have a board put aside for you and will contact you once they've built you a system.

@BigD

It has been a bit chaotic. I'm only going to get a motherboard and build the system myself.

If the problem is sourcing parts.... isn't the whole idea to use off-the-shelf components???

But it's galling there's been no communication. I never got a reply to my registration of interest. And there's been nothing from AmigaKit, only Amiga On The Lake who made a post seemingly on their behalf.

I'm hanging in there, but soon there will come a major change in my financial situation. I may order from AmigaOnTheLake, but I will get punished with customs duty.

What about ordering from one of the EU dealers?
