LabTop Mk IV Update


Customs clearance is still in progress. We will post a further update on Thursday as soon as we have more details regarding the status of the LabTop Mk IV shipment.

Jul 27, 2021 3:33 pm

Quality control is complete and the LabTop's are packaged up, ready to be transported over to the UK on Monday 12th July. The only process left before the shipment arrives at HQ is customs.

Quality control is underway. Once complete, the only process left will be packaging the LabTop's up, ready for the next available flight to the UK. The shipment will then need to be processed through customs, before arriving at HQ ready to start dispatching pre-orders.

Production for the LabTop's will officially be complete on Friday 28th May. Quality control will then commence on Monday 31st May before being packed up, ready for the next available flight over to the UK.

The good news is that the LabTop's are approximately 4-5 weeks away from completion. They then need to be shipped from the factory to us; fortunately, shipments are currently running with only minor delays.

On the other hand, an email has been sent out with details of everyone who has pre-ordered with details of a free upgrade that is available.

Production is nearing completion. We'll have a much more precise idea of timings for completion, QC and transit to the UK on the 6th. We will be able to post a more detailed update at that time. For now, we're estimating we'll be able to start dispatching orders in 4-5 weeks.

We are, however, going to wait until it's not April fools day to send out further details of an entirely optional choice for you; but in short, there will be an option to wait slightly longer and get a host of upgrades. If you're someone who wanted more power and more memory, it may be of interest to you 😉

Display verification is now complete. Minor, but fundamental alterations are being made to the IC's (the small chips that function as amplifiers, oscillators, timers and microprocessors). This will take approximately two weeks, after which the final production and assembly stage will commence.
