StarLite Mk V

In-progress

We are yet to receive a confirmed date for the shipment of Lite's, but we can work out when they'll be arriving with a relative degree of accuracy based on the shipment of Byte's that are heading over to us. The Byte's are much simpler to ship, as they don't have batteries, and airlines won't classify them as dangerous goods, so there are many more shipping options. The shipment of Byte's are due to arrive on the 5th or 6th.

The administration for the battery typically takes around 5-7 days, which means they will arrive around the 13th. This will all be confirmed very soon, so we'll post that date as soon as it is.

Once they arrive, it's just a case of us finishing them and sending them on to you guys for you to enjoy!

Update

The good news is that the StarLites are done. Unfortunately, the Chinese New Year has started. Once the holiday's over, we'll start quality control. We expect to have some refined dates by the 23rd and we will be sure to post these as soon as we get them.

Update

Due to clearance issues over the holiday period, the test for our burn-in process was delayed. This has now been completed, so the StarLite's just need to be burnt and go through quality control, and then they're ready to ship over to us. Once that's done, we'll be able to provide an accurate ETA, but we are expecting the events in the Red Sea and Chinese New Year to push this back slightly.

Estimation

The StarLite's are expected to arrive in the new year. We are targeting mid-January to dispatch these and kick start the year on a positive note!

Estimation

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!

Estimation

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.

Update

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.

That's a wrap! We are now out of stock for the StarLite Mk IV.

We will soon be releasing a new StarLite. It's quite a change, built to accommodate a vast array of requests we've received over the last 2 years and we are working diligently behind the scenes to ensure that we can provide an update on this as soon as possible.
