    Hello all. I am a long time reader first time poster. I have been following the modbook since its inception and finally bit and ordered a loaded model. This machine will be great for taking the clinical notes I require as a doc and for playing around with my favorite program Painter X.

    I placed the order this morning Feb. 4 and they are estimating a ship date of Mar. 4. I really don't believe that it will ship on Mar. 4 based on what I have been hearing as of late but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Good luck to us all........

    I placed my order January 8th, 2008. The statement in my order confirmation email was "backordered until February 5th" which is tomorrow. I'm VERY worried mine won't ship this week. There are some rumors that it'll be at least summertime before we get our ModBook... which I SINCERELY hope isn't true!

    Well, I'm not sure they're playing games as much as they are just really unorganized, or were unprepared. "Playing Games" insinuates they are intentionally trying to screw people... but remember, they don't charge your credit card until it ships... so it's not like they're taking money and not delivering.

    The whole thing is INCREDIBLY frustrating though... and after a year in the making it's hard to make excuses for either Axiotron or OWC. You'd think they would have gotten their sh!t together in that time.

    I might be placing an order with Carbon today. Just waiting for confirmation on the shipping dates.

    Carbon did say that they are waiting on Axiotron to ship more upgrade kits. I read somewhere OWC is doing the same. All delays point to Axiotron.

    I'm personally starting to question my own decision, ever since I read that there's a nasty bug between the Bluetooth and Wacom digitizer (where the digitizer dies if you use Bluetooth, requiring a reboot). Obviously Axiotron's answer was "It's not us, it's Apple!", yet again (same thing with screen rotation).

    Sigh. To LE1700/Hackintosh or not to LE1700.

    Received today! Ordered 1/10/08 Date of expected shipment 2/8/08


    First off, thank you for your continued patience in regards to your
    Modbook solution order. Although we expected to have already fulfilled
    your
    Modbook order, Axiotron was not able to ship OWC the number of Modbook
    conversion kits originally expected by this time.

    Today Axiotron has updated OWC with new shipment dates that it
    expects to be firm and without additional delays anticipated.

    Assuming that the current Axiotron kit deliveries occur as now
    expected, we look forward to being able to fulfill your order by or
    before
    March 21st 2008.

    You can review your order any time via this link:

    OWC and Axiotron thank you for your patience and sincerely apologize
    for the delay in fulfilling your OWC/Axiotron Modbook solution order.

    Sincerely,

    The OWC Team

    (T_T) guess we all wait a little while longer
