Re: VIA's entry into the low cost computer market

I feel good about the company and I want to be an early adopter with this product. I don’t mind the shipping if it gets here fast once released in July or August. I found APC to be professional overall and ordering was a breeze.

Re: VIA's entry into the low cost computer market

Mine is ordered and I will happily pay for the shipping. I have cancelled my order for the RPi (not because of VIA’s device) and decided to let it mature a little before reconsidering.
