    My card was charged yesterday as well, though I was one of those who had to re-enter ## after talking to bank about why the charge failed. I got everything corrected in time. Sooo...here we go.

    If past Surface events are any indication, it will still arrive on the 26th, which is the release day. Hate to rain on your parade. Hope you enjoy your SBs.

    Yep, I've had same experience as Bronsky. I pre-ordered both a SP2 and my current SP3, and they were charged a week or so early, both arriving on the official release day.

    Curious, which model did you guys go with? I'm still leaning towards a SP4 as I need the tablet form factor primarily, but glad to see the SB... especially with a dGPU.

    Enjoy!

    I went with the SB i7, 16, 512...did not need the 512, 256 (as in my SP3) would have been fine, but it was not an available choice on the 6th. I absolutely did want the i7, 16G RAM and the dGPU.

    Congrats, sounds like it's going to be an amazing machine. Hopefully it's as cool as I'm imagining it to be.

    According to FedEx, mine is schedule to arrive Friday 10/23 by 10:30AM. I ordered the SB i5/8/256/dGPU with 10% edu discount + 10% cashback (via Discover double cashback) :).

    still have not gotten a Track #...but they charged the card on Monday. And with my luck, it is coming from Santiago, Chile, via surface, to just 30 miles from MSFT Headquarters in Redmond. sigh.
