    I thought I might as well try to cut this off at the head...I get a lot of pm's and emails about this and our sales guys are hammered with the same questions a million times a day as well.... I just wanted to give the forum an idea of what kind of stock we have on everything and when certain things are arriving. A new R1 shipment arrived this week and we had some left over after all of the backorders were filled. Stock was updated on the site and yet apparently we've had a lot of people calling to verify when they were coming in or didn't believe we had stock. We're filling a ton of R2 backorders tomorrow and the notice that we have plenty more arriving has been spreading pretty quickly. The R2 stock (due to a screen shortage) makes the PS3 seem easy to get a hold of. Wednesday (12/20) @ 12pm EST is the cutoff time to get a delivery from us via FedEx 2Day before Christmas (Thursday same time for Overnight).

    As of 7pm EST 12/14, the information below was good:

    R1F Tablet
    R1: 6 in stock from shipment earlier this week, another 10 arriving Monday
    Stylus: 25 arriving tomorrow
    Main Battery (6 Cell): Some in stock, another 10 arriving Monday
    Optical Bay Battery (6 Cell): 12 arriving tomorrow
    Extra AC Adapters: Always in stock
    Car Chargers: Always in stock
    3rd Year Global Warranty Extension Package: Always in stock

    R2H UMPC
    *R2: 35+ backorders being filling tomorrow, 12+ left to ship by Tuesday, 15 more arriving on Tuesday
    *Double Capacity Battery (4 Cell): 9 in stock
    Standard Capacity Battery (2 Cell): 12 arriving Monday
    External DVD-RW: Always in stock
    Car Chargers: 20 arriving Monday
    Port Bar (port replicator): ETA end of year
    AC Adapters: ETA end of year
    Stylus: ETA end of year

    *Please note: The 4 Cell batteries we have as accessories all have the new built-in stand and rubber feet... All of the new R2h shipments also have this new battery standard as of this week.

    Can I also chip in here as well...

    How much are the car chargers for the R2H (inc overseas shipment).
    I simply can not get hold of any in the UK.

    Batteries are both $150 (Sony screwing up the market raised prices close to 25% in the last 6 months).

    Anything not up on the site now will be by Monday..... It's a busy time of year as I'm sure you all know.

    Well the car charger remains elusive in the UK.
    I believe I found it on Proporta's site in the end for $95, although there would be a premium to pay as well for overseas shipping.

    Well Mike, the car charger is $79.00 USD here in the states... if that helps... It's a somewhat odd 35 or 36w.

    Ohh... I can't locate that item Justin.

    The only one I found was the one mentioned here and that one is $95.
    It's product number is 04-266001800 and is a higher 65w.

    Where exactly is the one you are referring to Justin?

    Justin,

    Is the Asus external optical drive USB bus powered, or does it use an external AC power adapter?

    The ASUS R2H external optical drive is mains powered.
