Just chiming in to clarify a few things… two weeks ago I ordered mine. Back then, the DE layout was not listed at floss-shop.de, ironically
@beFree Cost is just about the same. As of today’s exchange rated, I’d pay 1675€ (taking VAT into account), vs 1667€ at floss-shop.de. Sidenote: high VAT is not per-se ridiculous. Always depends on how it is balanced with e.g. income taxes.
Possible disadvantage for US orders: $75 extra for shipping insurance (I skipped)
Possible disadvantages for floss-shop: less configuration options, rather pessimistic delivery promise of 5 weeks.
About delivery speed:
2018-02-28: order receipt
2018-03-08: Purism shipping note
2018-03-13: customs entered
2018-03-xx: … boy, I’m so excited - can’t wait
2018-03-19: customs passed
I’d hope that at some point in the future there will be one European reseller (as already announced for the Librem 5), just because it makes sense, especially when needing a repair or stuff like that. And because it makes sense, I’m confident Purism already has plans in that direction
