When will 11.6'' pinebook be available?
#21
Thank you for the update!

By now I undestood that you don't have big margins and the production is slim, I'm 100% ok with waiting for my pinebook; if I can give a suggestion though that information you just gave us should be more readily available (like on the pinebook BTO web page). Since I cannot reliably see the BTO queue status the whole process is confusing sometimes, and I really don't want to bother people on Discord/IRC every time I need a clarification.

I really don't want to sound too critic; please know that I deeply appreciate the fact that you started production again even if the margins are small.

Are they only filling back orders or are they taking all orders from any interested party?  Huh

Sorry on the delay due to more times needed to resume back production. The Pinebook starts taking order from BTO queue on first week of September and starts deliver on third week of September. Due to long BTO queue, we will repeat this process for several months.
Someone will ask why we don't produce enough Pinebook at once, the answer is simple due to cash on hand. The Pinebook profit margin is slim and the build cost is high, and Pine64 is a community (means didn't raise money from investor  or loan money from bank), this just allows us to produce a certain quantity Pinebook per batch and the money then recycle back for next batch. Beside cash flow, the Pinebook has lithium ion battery and this means there is a lot of paper work during shipping, this is another reason that limit Pinebook deployment.


Maybe you could offer pinebook without the battery and allow enthusiasts to install it themselfs.

Anyone received their BTO ticket?
I haven't yet.
Would like to add an 11.6" Pinebook to my two Pine64's and my 14" Pinebook.

I saw quite a few reports of people getting their BTO coupons ... they have started going out. Hope you'll get yours Smile
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
