    Today I received and assembled mine. One Teres-A64 happily charging at the kitchen plot ; ] Its assembly was a good exercise! I’ll try to attend the next assembly workshop, though, as I have some ideas for the next model ; )

        Good news that the laptop starts to arrive. What is the status of shipping orders in general? Did olimex start shipping abroad, how many orders have been shipped?

        Is it a commercial secret, how large is the first run, and how many orders were placed?

    @NP32: I placed the order two weeks ago and Monday I received the tracking number. I’m from Romania. So I’m looking forward ta assemble it 😀

    @Balint Szente I ordered on the day of the announcement, like 3 weeks ago, and I received the shipping notification today.

    I received the laptop, and I am pretty satisfied. A few questions/comments:

    * what do I do with the magnet lid sensor?
    * the antenna cable looks long, but it is easy to place it so that the cable does not reach the connector. I had to reopen the lid and re-glue the antenna a bit closer.
    * the 17th m2x4 bolt, probably, goes in the very middle of the bottom panel, from the outside.

      P.S.: I found where the magnet goes. Please, write some something about it in the instructions 🙂 It is on one of the photos, but I missed it, and had to open the lid once again.

        @NP32: yes, it happened to me as well with the little magnet.

        On the other hand, I like the laptop, the plastics are of good quality and it is pretty solid.

    Another question: I would like to charge the laptop from the USB. The adapter is bulky, plus, depending on the country, one needs additional bulky adapters. Meanwhile, USB sockets are everywhere, e.g. in cars or airplanes.

    What is the size of the power barrel connector? If I get a USB->barrel cable, would the charging work from usual USB chargers which supply 0.5A to 3A?

    What page did you see the magnet?

    The photo of the lid cover, when the hinges are installed, but the lcd is not.

    Another thing: when the lid is closed, it presses on the keyboard. This is an issue if the laptop is not suspended. Probably, it is not so hard to solve this in the software. What is the right way to turn off the keyboard and the touchpad on the event of closing the lid?

      Have you installed the 2 small rubber feet on top of the screen screws?

        yeap. The keys which are pressed by the lid are in the top row, like Esc or Del. They are only pressed when I carry the laptop around, probably because the lid flexes slightly.
