Not meaning to be a basher, but mid August is an estimate which assumes they can fix the issue (whatever it is) by then.

my conclusion is that we are dealing with a contracted company that has no clue what is really happening on the production side...

Over the past few weeks I've noticed that some contributors to this thread have ordered and received various configurations of Helix models through provantage.com. Checking their page today, it appears that they suddenly have a good stock (95 count) of one model, the 3698-4MU (that's an i5 processor with 180GB drive). I say "suddenly," because this listing appeared within the last two or three hours. Maybe the logjam is breaking up.

I ordered a Helix yesterday through excaliberpc.com.. their web site showed they had a few of the i7 256gb models in stock.  Called in to verify and when I said I was calling to check stock on a laptop, she asked if I was calling about the helix (guess I wasn't the only one scouring around trying to find one!).  I think they're out of stock now, but I'd check their web site again soon, seems like places are starting to get more in.

Photoresistor. Why don't you order one from Adorama? They sell it for $1999.99 with model 36984SU. I just ordered mine and chose one day shipping. Actually, I'm trying to find the 3g/4g model but it seems like there is no chance retailers have them on stock and I heard it will be going to release on August. That's why I decided to order 36984SU instead.
