Yikes.. you're at about 28 business days, so I'm thinking end of April now, if I'm lucky. Oh well, as long as it's here for spring, which was the whole point (being outside)..

I put in an order for one a couple weeks ago. But only because I finally picked up an ABR800 (off this forum). I have a Vagabond II, but the Mini will be awesome to pair up with the ABR800. Ordered some short right-angle power cables from monoprice.com, too.

When did you order yours Bobby? I ordered mine on Feb 23 so I'm guessing maybe another couple weeks for me. What I'm really waiting for is 2 Einsteins I just placed yesterday! Now that ones gonna be painful to wait for! Already got the VBII but wanted the VML as well for a lighter more portable setup when needed.

You're close! Lady said they're shipping the January orders. I ordered few days before you. You'll probably get it soon after me.

Yeah, shouldn't be long, I ordered Jan 24 and also spoke to them today.They said mine should be going out next week. Sounds optimistic but crossing fingers!

Just got off the phone with PCB.. They're saying 3-4 weeks for new orders.. "hopefully by the end of the month" for shipping.. So allowing for a bit of over-optimism, I'm going to guess mid-April for me..

Still, I guess it's better than those who waited month after month previously..
