Exciting times! Assembly stage starts next week. We will then start to see a steady stream of machines being produced. With regular discussions happening internally between us and the factory, we are prioritising every possible resource to get these ready. As the schedule becomes more clear going forward, we will have more concise and accurate estimations.
Please excuse the delay in the details. We are putting together a video, it's not something that we've done before and the guy making it is a perfectionist! We'll have that ready on Tuesday the 29th.

The first-ever StarFighter is done! That one it's way over to us now, as there are a handful of small details that need our sign-off. We'll let you know when it's here, and we'll be sure to share LOTS of details when it arrives.

For those that have ordered a custom keyboard, we will be emailing out the template and instructions over the next week! If you don't want to wait, you can download the ISO template here and the ANSI template here.
As for other updates, to put it simply - AMD seemed to have changed their minds and have offered the 7840HS processors without the excessive delay. We will, of course, be taking advantage of this, which will push the AMD variants behind the Intel ones in terms of lead times.
Production for the StarLite itself along with the optional US and UK layouts are estimated to finish production just before Christmas. Due to how successful the launch has been for the StarLite, we have managed to get another batch underway already and source additional displays to make this happen!

The StarLite's themselves, are unfortunately running behind our original estimate due to a few components arriving later than originally planned which has had a knock-on effect with our production schedule. We've got lots of different build options, such as the keyboards, pens etc, which have different lead times. These are all unaffected, apart from the ISO-based keyboards, which are running approximately a week ahead of schedule.
The total delay is anticipated to be around 6 weeks for the tablets themselves, so please allow for this time on top of the estimated lead time that was quoted on your order.

This week the 12.5' inch displays have passed quality control and the N200 CPUs have arrived at the factory. All other components have arrived prior to this.

Production is now underway! With over half of the first batch already sold, we're already looking to put another batch into production.

We're just confirming the final few details for the Lite Mk V - stay tuned, we're almost there!
Our team is finalising the last stage of production which is estimated to be complete in around ten days time. After this point, it'll take a few days to get the machines packed up and shipped to us. The race before Christmas is well and truly on!

The chassis and PCBAs are built, and ready for the CPUs to be soldered onto the boards. The first several units will be tested before we are then sent a sample. The customised nickel logo will be etched on the 24th and the packaging has been signed off.

Production is proceeding as planned.

The Byte is now available to pre-order, the full specification can be found here. All going well, production is due to complete in 8 weeks.
Last chance to save 25%, as the early bird offer ends Sunday 23rd July.

We're finally there! The Byte Mk II details are being uploaded to our website as we speak and should be complete by early next week.
