Re: When is the Helix release date?

2013-04-17, 13:07 PM

Say,

 

Did any kind of updates come in yesterday.  My Helix seemed to get reset abit.  For example my tool bar was moved to its normal bottom position (I like it at the top) and my wall paper for the desktop was gone.  Also now when it starts up there is a little tune as well as some other system type sounds tath seem to be activated.

Didn't notice anything like that this morning when I last used my Helix but I will say that the temp was at 62-63 for some reason at the start screen--hadn't seen that before.  Just noticed the fans were kicked in and checked the temp.  Believe it was probably a scheduled malware scan though.  That was about 0500.  I'll post back if I find anything like that this evening.

Your right it probably will have the **bleep** delayed out of it... I guess I am just feeling bitter as I was told April and now it's may....

Definitely think those of us who got it from these resellers got extremely lucky (albeit with very limited build options), especially considering overnight delivery.  I am not sure exactly why we were able to get our hands on it early, though.  Perhaps the resellers used the SMB program.  That's what TopSeller seems to be, which is what PC Connection sells their machines as. 

 

Guess I shouldn't complain.

The 36984RU on MacMall is the same model that a couple of us here have (i7, 180GB, 8GB).  I believe that's the same price as PC Connection and they might actually belong to the same company.
