In this thread I mentioned that I recently ordered a new 5103. It was originally scheduled to be delivered on 10/6, but today I got an email saying "We regret to inform you that your order ##### has encountered a delay due to a temporary material shortage." I know that the members of the forum can't predict what this means in this particular case, but I'm wondering what the collective experience may reveal about this situation. I called customer care and they indicated the new ship date would be 10/23, but they could not offer any specifics on what the temporary material shortage actually is. I'm nervous because I need to go on the road 11/1. Think I'll get my new mini before then?
One other question, SGP has some protective skins for the HP5102, is the external case of the 5103 identical? (i.e. would they work on the 5103)
