I thought of this post as the “go to” post for delivery stats. Too bad this forum doesn’t have a DB like (or like the old yahoogroups.).

This could be the “Neverending Story”. Before we get swallowed up by “The Nothing”. (And will Atreya solve our disbelief in shipping? Will our L5’s get shipped into the void?"

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, shipping parity will be reached and this topic can be closed.

I hope I am wrong here, but did you really pay 197 + 136 + 60 + 10 = about 400 euros in taxes and fees?!

I read it as 197 total with everything in parentheses after being the breakdown of the 197.

Ah, sure. My bad. Still a lot. But far less outlandish.

Waiting for August 2019✌

Great news to see the delivery goes on !

For the lucky people who recently received their L5, what was the comment in the “Estimated Shipping Date” section of your order status, before the L5 was sent ?

I ordered mine in mid of september 2019, and I still have the verrrrry old message “Estimated Shipping Date: Librem 5 - To be determined based on CPU availability. Please check back later.”



“Awaiting for Shipment” or something similar.

Ordered: 2019-07-31
Verification E-Mail: 2023-04-04

I don’t reply to shipping and receiving dates, since each time frame is within 7 days like for all other people. My order was one of the last with 649$, so very soon Purism will start to ship 699$ devices.


I’m at the Verification E-Mail / Response stage and my order still reads " Awaiting Shipment Estimated Shipping Date: Librem 5 - To be determined based on CPU availability. Please check back later. "
