Same here. Ordered i5 DIY Oct 14th but I did make a change to my order after the fact so that may be why mine hasn’t shipped yet.
@Robert_Kocourek - you might find this thread useful. Hopefully I’m sharing the link correctly, still getting the hang of the forum mechanics:
*dbrand has some skins, though personally I’m hoping for a more protective snap-on case in the near future. In the meantime, I’ got one of these:
based off what others had said. I’m still waiting for my laptop to ship, so I can’t speak to the fit personally, but sounds like it fits well.
Another batch 5 member here, ordered mine on November 7 (i7 DIY Edition), and really can’t wait to get the e-mail saying it’s shipped
I did as well. Added another stick of RAM.
Ordered my DIY mid-level i7 on October 20th and got my second email this morning; no charge or tracking number quite yet.
I’m looking at the order dates and the last names (for those of us who used them in our screen names) and there has to be some formula behind the scenes. Like, orders from week X are processed alphabetically, or something like that. Bailey gets the email today, Clements got his email, Conrad is still waiting.
Mustafa S is still waiting. Hoping that my order modification on Nov 9th didn’t set me way back.
If my alphabetical order theory is right, I should get the email any minute now! But if my “six weeks” theory is right, it’ll be next week or the week after. I’m on the edge of my seat!
I don’t think its Alphabetical, Last name is R, ordered the i7 1165g7 Oct 19, got the email at midnight last night.
Does anyone else live in Canada? I was just wondering if any Canadian’s have received their laptop yet. I’m still waiting for my second e-mail.
I’m in Canada, ordered on Oct 22, but nothing after the first email yet.
Looks like my order is getting ready to ship. A timeline for those equally impatient:
Oct 14: Ordered i7-1165G7 / 16GBx2 / 1TB SN850
Oct 27: Slight modification to preorder (added modules)
Nov 1: “We’re preparing your batch!”
Nov 16 (12am CST): “We’re preparing to ship your order!”
Nov 16 (9pm CST): Card charged, “Your order is shipping soon”
Looks like it’ll arrive right at the start of a 9 day vacation. Works for me!
I doubt modifying your order through support alters your place in the queue. It’s likely just FIFO based on your SKU.
Just got my email today saying the remaining balance has been paid. Finally gonna be getting my laptop. Very excited.
Canadian here. I got my second email last night.
October 17 diy i5
Yay! They took my money today and it should be getting shipped soon. I7 DIY ordered October 12
i got my second email for my preconfig i5 (plus 6 expansion cards). hoping for under 2 weeks untill i get it now. i live outside toronto so idk about shipping.
@wylie_keeping That’s great! I read some people talking about how framework might be going through the orders somewhat alphabetically, which would really suck for me… I’d love to hear more about how shipping goes once they send it out, I’m in a similar area to you.
My order from Oct 14 was cancelled since it couldnt be modified to add more expansion cards. @FrameworkSupport said they couldnt reinstate my order and I had to place a new one which will be shipped in December. This is unfair.
Received my i5-based laptop (ordered Sep 24). Absolutely love it! I installed this SSD which I purchased separately:
I installed the memory and wifi card which came with the laptop.
I disabled secure boot in the BIOS and installed Manjaro Linux (GNOME, 5.13 kernel).
The install went flawlessly. Wifi works. I love the trackpad. The operation is buttery smooth.
I couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of this laptop! Also, this is my first exposure to Manjaro Linux, and so far so good.
I ordered mine on the 31st of October. Got no other email except for the “confirm your order, we’re getting ready to ship” email.
