    Figured I should give a brief writeup of my experience so far with HIDevolution. @Ted@HIDevolution and @Donald@HIDevolution have been a great help in my choice to go with them.

    I initially contacted Ted a couple of weeks ago after reading about the P870TM1 on NBR. I gave him a laundry list of questions via email and he responded to the best of his ability. I wasn't using the best terminology, as I am a bit out of touch with the industry. My MacBook Pro made me lazy, not much else to say on that. He was still able to read between the lines.

    Both Ted and Donald were great, not pushy, and provided me with great info and advice, actually arguing for and against additional features. Normally I hate sales people. I applaud both for not perpetuating the stereotype.

    Anyway, I just purchased a P870TM1 and I am really looking forward to testing it out. Really the only concern I have is the keyboard. Good thing most controllers don't depend on that. I am also looking forward to configuring this to what I am looking for. Thanks to all of those that have experimented and shared.

    What should be my first steps when it arrives? Pretty sure I will be doing the steps suggested by @Ultra Male, but you all seem to have a ton of great info so lay it on!

    I will try to keep this updated as the build progresses. Hopefully this will contribute to help others out!

    10/8/18 - Placed order online after talking with Ted and he hooked it up with a NBR discount.
    10/9/18 - Jenny called to confirm that I was a real person. Confirmed.
    10/10/18 - Parts and Unit ordered! Some expected to arrive 10/12/18.

    Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Perhaps this should be moved to the reseller feedback subforum?

    Wonder if your order arrived, what do you think about it? Really want to hear your opinions because I'm going to order a similar laptop from HIDevolution soon.

    No changes from what I posted yet. Hoping to see progress when they open up on Monday.
