For anyone curious, this was in an email I received from directdial.com concerning my order. They took in over 7000 orders in a one day period and say that several thousand units will be slowly coming in over the next week, and continue on to say that there are some overseas shipments coming in a week or two.
There's a bunch of talk how they are working closely with HP Canada to get as many units as they can secure.
So, I have no confirmation yet if I am getting one, with my luck I was the 6956th to order
The email ended with this(I apologize if this is stuff people have heard already, I havn't been keeping track of things the last few days.) Not sure if this is directly from HP or not, but still interesting...
