ExoPC gets delayed again

More delays for ExoPC

ExoPc has been talking up its slate computer for a long time now and the thing has run in a number of issues that have resulted in long delays. The ExoPC was set to ship this month based on the order it was pre-ordered in. That shipment will not happen for many users due to a manufacturing error that resulted in damaged machines.




The manufacturing error had to do with a faulty piece of equipment on the Pegatron assembly line where the ExoPC is built. The faulty equipment was responsible for the touchscreen install and was pressing too hard, resulting in cracks in some of the screens. The faulty gear has to be replaced, leading to a delay in shipment. A stronger LCD with the same specs has also been sourced for the ExoPC.


ExoPC did receive a small amount of 32GB units that will ship starting on October 18. The majority of owners will not see their machines at that time. The 64GB SSD is also delayed so only the 32GB version will be shipping to start. More of the 32GB machines will arrive on October 29 baring other issues and will include some 64GB units. Shipments on those are set for the first week of November. To say sorry for the new delay, each pre-order tablet will get a free stylus and a free stand.
