It's been a while since we started shipping out rewards so we thought we'd share progress with you and also let you in on plans for the Xbox One console now that the release is a couple of days away. Here's where we're at with respect to the 360 Slim console rewards:

Xbox ONE Rewards
We've already pre-ordered Xbox ONE units and should have them in our hands by next week. As soon as we do we'll start modifying the Darkmatter laptop design to adapt innards of the new console. We're also currently working on the design for the new 360 Slim (360 E) laptop. Our estimate is this design update process (for both the 360E and Xbox One) would take about 1-2 months after which the following reward levels will start to roll out:
We really appreciate the feedback you guys have been sending in on the e-book content. Keep it coming! This will allow us to weed out any mistakes and gradually turn this into the most comprehensive guide out there on building Xbox laptops. The e-book will soon be ported to this publicly editable wiki which backers would be able to modify and improve on.
Please share pictures/details of your Darkmatter builds here on the community forum. If you're having any trouble with assembly please feel free to PM us or post on the forum, we would be glad to help out.
