Hopefully this is how this works: I didn’t see anyone creating the batch 6 guild yet, so at the risk of jumping the gun, once The Lunar New Year (which starts this weekend) has finished I think we all expect to see a huge ramp starting on the 19th, and I expect that my fellow batch 6 folks will want this space, and I don’t want to crowd the other batchs’ topics with my own gushing.
I went diy, and I finally had enough wiggle to go crazy on a computer, so I just went all out on build, the 9 is mostly in hopes they allow undervolting, storage maxed so I can dual boot, though that looks like it might break fingerprint reading, and ram just cause I got a good deal on sticks, but stuck with ones they had confirmed for sure will work.
Didn’t get both bays, only way video card is coming out is if they get a battery bay in there
I went with both bays, to be able to travel light/get more battery life during work days/travels. And given that availability of components will be cannibalized for a while by just filling all batches, I wouldn’t expect them to be available on the Marketplace before Q3 at least.
I am absolutely dying, especially to see batch 2s start to ship so we can look at time between batches and subtract lunar new year to get a guess on batch speeds, I just need something semi scientific of when I will get it so I can calm down till it’s a little closer
Ryzen 7 DIY, no GPU module, numpad, and at least 1 of each expansion card except storage. 10 in all. Plus Win11 Home. I didn’t order SSD or RAM, I’ll get those separately. Total cost, $AUD2957 plus whatever I spend on SSD and RAM. Gotta love that Australia tax.
…just looking forward to upgrading from my 2011 (subsequently upgraded) Quasmio laptop. But repairability, and choosing to generate less electronic waste down the track were the real draw cards. Expecting delivery likely late March-April at the current pace of batches (?) patiently waiting… (Sigh)
@pdp Cool, moi aussi je suis de Vanves et je bosse à Boulogne. Faudra monter un club ‘parisien’ autour du FW16 ahah
I’ve already worked on QMK with my homemade Corne split KB. It’s quite simple to compile a BEPO layer on the KB, since it’s already available for some French KB models. I’ll certainly do a BEPO firmware for me as well but I can’t give any ETA about it. I still need to get my hands on the ‘beast’ first
@Aurelien_D Fontenay-aux-Roses, on est quasiment voisins
Oh I’m not really concerned about the feasibility, I’m familiar with QMK which I used for my Ergodox and Moonlander.
Having Framework offer a Bépo layout is merely to get nice matching keycaps
But I’m tempted to change my preorder to go with a blank keyboard, like my other keyboards…
