This is old news...But I was so happy when I read this wednesday, I almost started to hop around
We have just been notified from ASUS that the Z70Va ( Z70V refresh ) notebooks have arrived at Customs in California. We are at the mercy of Customs as to when these units will be cleared for release. Please keep in mind that these units can take 1-7 days for clearance. Once these units do clear, they will be shipped to us expedited for immediate assembly and testing. Units will be built in ORDER THEY WERE PREORDERED. Please do not ask us to move you up the build order, this is not fair to those that have been waiting.
At this time we would like to know what last minute changes you wish to make on your unit.. As you know, we offered to either upgrade you to the next higher processor, or refund you the difference in pricing because of the Intel price drop which took place on July 24th. This applies to preorders that took place BEFORE July 24th. Anyone that ordered on/after July 24th do not qualify for the processor upgrade because the pricing had already been adjusted.
What we need from you at this time is the changes you want made to your order ( if any ). If you would make sure to include either your order ID number, or the name of the person that ordered the notebook in your reply email we will make sure that these changes are in place before shipping. For upgrades to your preorder, please be prepared to be available to discuss additional charges.
Thanks again for your patience.
