    Oh my, you are one lucky man :) I bet the anticipation is crippling at the moment. Please post up pictures if you can tonight :) Still no news from Scan my end with regards to the new stock, it's looking highly likely that they will get stock on my model, as well as the Green & Orange variants on Monday.

    Liam.

    Heads up for all in the UK - Scan now have the black Aero 15 in stock as of writing. Fingers crossed my pre-order is processed for shipping this afternoon :)

    Edit - just got on the live chat to them to enquire if I can upgrade my shipping to Saturday delivery... looks like I will be receiving it tomorrow and also at no extra cost as well! Can't wait...

    Edit 2 - OcUK has got a couple of them in stock as well of the same variant.

    Liam.

    Nice least they can do for keeping you waiting for so long as well. Truly hope this is all it's cracked up to be! (It will) :D

    Ordered a black version from Newegg... Received the bright orange. :(

    Otherwise, it's a pretty great little unit. The mouse pad is the worst part so far.

    Only powered up the machine to have a quick go but from initial thoughts its very very nice! much better build quality than expected. I'd say it's pretty solid. Hinge isn't as tough as the XPS 15 but I don't see this machine posing any issues. Screen is great! had to change scaling to 100% (default is 125% out of the box). Very very quiet but even when fans ramp up no where as noisy as the XPS 15 on moderate load. I'll play around with this properly tomorrow but having watched so many reviews now over the last three weeks it literally is as they say. It's an impressive machine...

    Thanks for the quick write-up. Could you let us know if you see any ghosting issues with the screen while gaming? It does have a slightly disappointing response rate, but from what I understand not as bad as the FHD XPS15.
