This is an interesting question, but not one that I would push so much, this is after all their second product and they probably know the process better. Anyway please read and heed my cautionary tale: I was one of the original aggravations who pushed for a quick release of the original, I got my way and was one of the first to receive the Touchbook. However, now after a bit more than a year, its broken. With that said, I don't mind waiting too much, if it helps insure the quality of the build. And even though my Touchbook is broken, YOU CAN BET YOUR REAR END I'M GOING TO BUY A SMART BOOK AS SOON AS IT IS RELEASED! And in retrospect I wish I had given them more slack with the original.
