    At least you're just waiting for your toy. I'm still waiting to be able to pay for this thing :(

    Whom do you think will get the majority of shipment? Resellers or retailers? Because there are guys who have ordered for this beast in september and still waiting, and there are also guys who ordered it two days before and are now enjoying with it..

    Anyone know if the Newegg one includes the mouse TOO? It only has a picture of the backpack...

    Probably included since no other model gives out the backpack

    Hope so. Same with the Amazon one, right? Newegg and Amazon will be my backups if the resellers don't come through on pricing/availability.

    Yep. I can also see tigerdirect having the G53jw-A1 but still keeping faith with the resellers here :).

    Not very odd. Most of the larger retailers will negotiate financial incentives to insure products are supplied on time. If the product is not delivered on time often the terms will change. I believe the two most common devices used are a discounted invoice price per unit or increased payment schedule. It may sound counter intuitive but the ability to extend the payment schedule is often the more valuable of the two options.

    Resellers provide a valuable long tail market for manufacturers due to their customizations and additional support. But the bulk of sales is still going to come for large online retailers and big box retail stores.

    Taking into account the potential for financial penalties and the larger market its not surprising to me that larger retailers have received the first large shipments of units. Lets not forget the resellers received units, albeit small quantities, weeks before the retailers.

    As much as it is frustrating to wait I really don't want the first unit shipped, I want the best possible unit customized to my specifications. That means waiting a bit longer which, while annoying, is worth it to me.

    OK, I've tried the tutorial to mod my keyboard backlight... It works ^___^
    Thing is, I think that the led power chord edge (which connected to the laptop frame) seems to a bit loose now, resulting in led going on and off at weird times...
    Any ideas on how to fix it? I'm planning to fix it by adding some plastic buffer beneath the wire to keep it tight as my last resort...
