    I FEEL this in my bones. I like to wait for good deals on eBay or Swappa.

    At least Black Friday? Even replacing the SSD in the the lowest model is a lot of cash when you have a "perfectly fine" SP7 :(:(:(:(:( (Perfectly fine will be my wife's words...)

    Well, for those who are on the CDW bandwagon, there is the important fact that there are few cases and accessories available at the moment. Most vendors I spoke to are telling me November/December for those to hit store shelves, virtual or otherwise.

    Oops! All gone now. Had the KB + pen combo in my cart and they removed. Now it's even gone from the link, "not available to purchase online."

    It is still available. If on desktop, you have to do mobile view under developer tools. Still working for me, at least.

    Today’s ETA forecast at CDW calls for… November 26th. However, an agent did tell me at first an October 29th ETA… only to turn around and find out that it was a system error. Grrr… Happily, Provantage’s orders for the Surface Laptop Studio are still on track for November 8th. Man, how I wish they had the Surface Pro 8 demos for sale. In my experience, they are way better than CDW. I again urge looking into ITsavvy which I have mentioned in passing here earlier some weeks ago:
    If CDW fails to deliver, as a backup contingency, I also have my family’s Surface Pro 8 orders simultaneously placed with ITsavvy whose support team has been far more responsive and competent than CDW’s jokesters.

    Turns out there was no shortage at all, it was just @sonichedgehog360 placing advance orders for all manufactured units. :p
