Now, in order to pull this off, there will need to be enough people who express their interest in this. For that purpose, an “Interest Registration” form was published today, where you can share your details.
If enough people are interested, then pre-orders will open up in North America first. Two weeks after that, pre-orders will open up all over the world, in areas where sufficient interest has been expressed.
Once the minimum amount of pre-orders has been received, the team will advance to production. iBUYPOWER expects it could take 10–12 weeks to fulfill all orders, as there are still supply shortages of PC components.
The PC will be a numbered, limited edition item that will never be recreated again. Once pre-orders open up, the items will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The iBUYPOWER team will make sure allocations are spread out over the world, so North Americans won’t be able to buy up the total supply.
