Longtime lurker, first time poster.
Slate order here; ordered March 13; order num 47xxx.
I got a bit frustrated with the day by day pushbacks and called support. After being auto hung up on 3 times in a row, I finally got through.
The support person stated the delays are due to hiring and training the additional staff.
She also stated they start the day with a count of how many they'll build (100 or 150 or similar). If they end up short of that estimate, the ones scheduled get pushed to the next day and everyone else's get pushed back too.
She stated as they train folks the estimates are getting better. I don't agree with that optimism, but ya know hey, it should be the case even though it isn't.
I also asked about the state of accessories and she said they just started shipping them for the pint, but further ships (like the next two weeks and beyond) should be getting their accessories at around the same time as the board.
My current ship date has been pushed back to the 7th. It's not listed as in production so I'm doubtful that date will remotely hold.
