Oh man - will they all get sold out before I even wake up? :ghost:
Let me quote the following from their posts:
"Der erste Batch besteht aus 400 und 1000 Rechnern. Die ersten 400 werden mit sehr hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit vor Weihnachten fertig und verschickt. (Man weis nie, was noch kommen kann) Die weiteren 1000 werden dann Anfang '22 rausgehen."

"The first batch consists of 400 and 1000 computers. The first 400 will most likely be done and shipped before Christmas. (You never know what else may come) The other 1000 will then go out in early '22."

The dev-team just announced an update referring the preorder start on the forums, Discord, etc. Here we go (translated for your convenience. ;)
The interest in MEGA65 is immense, the momentum has reached maximum :-) The last days came a lot of donations to the MEGA65 team, a lot of newsletter registrations, a lot of new entries in Discord, posts on Twitter, Facebook, etc.. It's madness and we are still trying to answer everything while we are rotating :-D

We will also announce an update regarding the preorder launch later today.
What we can assure is that it will start very soon, but we still have to coordinate the exact launch date.
Trenz is afraid that the servers will collapse again and we have to send out the circular mail to all supporters. (We are still in the process of preparing this). So it may take a few more days, but everything is going well and every day that we push the launch out, gives us some air !

(Which we need urgently)

We prefer to postpone the launch for another week or two, than to have unforeseen problems and not be able to keep our promise. In the MEGA65 team, I am actually the one who always keeps the community in mind and tries to communicate everything accordingly.

So: Update will follow soon

PS: We realize how jittery the community expects the presale. But be sure, we are just as jittery.

The preoders will be handled by their partners over at Trenz Electronic. This is where one can place the preorder, limited to one machine per individual (at first), full prepayment. Trenz Electronic had also successfully handled the distribution of the MEGA 65 development kits a whle ago.
Ok, many thanks!
