Another quick update to let you all know, we have approved the fabrication of the Librem 15 rev2 motherboard, the prototype we received passed with flying colors.
We should be getting our first 50 Librem 15 rev2 units within 3 to 4 weeks, it’s possible to get some earlier if we go with the first 50 light gray (since the case supplier has them in stock in light gray), so we are very likely to do that. If we do, the color will be the only difference, so we will ask any early backers what choice they want, light gray or wait for darker gray.
To keep a running update on dates:
August 10th – Ship second prototype
August 13th – Receive third prototype (test)
August 17th – “green light” fabrication
August 20th – Todd on-site @ fabrication in Shenzhen
[3-4 weeks fabrication]
September [15th-20th] – Receive hardware for assembly
September [24th-28th] – Ship first orders of Librem 15 rev2
