Since we've experienced shipping delays and other hurdles (which I discussed at length in this month's update) I figured that the right thing to do is bring you up to speed on whats going on in the past 2 weeks rather than have you wait until the November update. This way you're not left hanging without any information for too long - which I understand and appreciate can be quite frustrating. Instead of  writing another blog entry, I opted for a much less formal forum post - I'll likely have to edit it once or twice in the coming days anyways, since I expect more news from TL and the respective factories. 

Here is the run-down:

Pinebook Pro

Shipping of the first Pinebook Pros batch was completed today [edit] The majority of Pinebook Pros shipped out, with a handful shipping together with the 2nd batch; its all in DHL's hands now. If you are in the first batch and haven't received your unit yet, you'll be getting an email or SMS soon. I expect that most of the early adopters will have their Pinebook Pro by the end of the week *fingers crossed*.
Thanks for being so patient and positive on both the forum and the chats - its really appreciated!

The second and third batch Pinebook Pro PCBs have already arrived at the factory and will be assembled this week. The entire laptops will be assembled and quality control checked right after; if all goes well, we'll have them shipped by the end of October or sometime in the first week of November. I'll keep you posted. [edit 24/10/19] It appears that everything is on-track regarding assembly, and the batch will indeed go out on the 29/10.  

AND, how can we/I put on order for a new Pinebook Pro? Thanks! 

I ordered on 28th of August. Which batch does my order belong to?

Thanks for the update, Luke.

Just to confirm something: while the first batch didn't fully ship out on time, they were assembled on time, yes?  What I'm getting at is, the 15 first-batch laptops will still have the upgraded eMMC module, right?
The second batch has the upgrade as well Smile
