Quoted from KingBW:
When I ordered, I was told there was no guarantee that the price would not go up after production started. This is a pre-production price. But then it was said that the price may stay the same initially for a bit.
Just sayin ... remember that the WOZ price went up once production started to catch up.
Frankly I don't see the "pre-production price" as much of a bargain.... unless you ignore the time value of money.
I guess its OK for people that NEED it as a way to save, kind of like a modern day lay-away scheme....
But, use WoZ as an example:
Did you really SAVE money tying up your cash for YEARS?
Working through multiple iterations of led boards, etc?
It's mostly for folks that want to be bleeding edge adopters and "invest" in the company..... by the way... nothing wrong with that - just not my cup of tea....however, telling yourself its a "money saver" is a bit of a rationalization stretch....
