      Dear Rohan, et.al.:

      We have indeed contacted our Kickstarter backers and fans to let them know that because of their prior interest they have the ability to pre-order our X3A and X7A Modular Computers. This email was sent by our Director of Sales, but was sent via our ISYS Technologies email server, which makes sense because ISYS Technologies is the parent company of Xi3 Corporation.

      So . . . sorry for any confusion. Just simple outreach on our part.

      In the meantime, however, should any of you wish to reach me directly, you can do so via email (politis@Xi3.com) or by phone (801-534-4400).

      Sincerely,

      Dave Politis,
      Chief Marketing Officer
      Xi3 Corporation

      Not sure if anyone is still looking at this, can’t imagine so... but in the case that anyone is I'm wondering if you have had a similar experience.

      I responded to the internal mail that was sent when the project failed, and advised that I was indeed interested in pre-ordering the new X3A. I received a response, from a different domain, advising that I could indeed do this if I was to complete and return the attached credit card authorization form...
      So from my perspective one of 2 things is happening, either my email was intercepted and this is a fishing scam, or Xi3 is telling me that: for me to pre-order this device I need to send my unencrypted credit card details to a domain that I have no previous dealings with... And they are doing this when they already have a working store front that they could have just added a pre-order option to for the new devices...

      If this is indeed a fishing scam then take this post as a warning. If however this was an actual response from Xi3 then I have this to say: You have managed to design what I see as a rather perfect piece of technology, simple, sexy, and reasonably priced (amazingly well priced considering what it is). Please don’t let shoddy business practices ruin it for you.

      Does the X7A come without Windows? Don't see a pledge level for that.

      So again curious if you have a backup plan as this does not look like it will get funded. I'd really like to get one.

      It will meet funding. Somehow. And even if it doesn't, I'm sure that they will still find a way to make them, as they are already selling the previous version of the Xi3

      Creator Rohan on October 8, 2012

      I have to agree that this looks like it will fail to meet funding. Which is a shame as the X3A is EXACTLY what I have been looking for in a pc replacement, tiny, not under spec'd, not over priced, and damn sexy to look at!

      Dear Kickstarter Backers & Friends:

      We have been quite pleased with the amount of interest our Xi3 Modular Computers have generated since we began this journey a mere 10 days ago, especially our forthcoming X7A and X3A Modular Computers.

      We have now been contacted by friends, fans and backers from around the globe, and we have been working hard to provide timely updates and information for each of you. Based upon your questions, comments and responses, we fully expect to meet our funding goal.

      Thank you again for your interest and support. We also invite and encourage you to help us spread the word about this Project through tweets, blogging, Facebook posts/updates and more to help your friends learn about our X7A & X3A Modular Computers.

      Sincerely,

      Dave Politis

      David it doesn't look like you'll meet your funding goal. What plans do you have to move forward with these 2 new models if the KS campaign fails? I'm very interested in the X7A and hope other avenues will be made available to get my hands on one.

      Thanks for posting the data sheets, David, I think that'll answer a lot of questions. I do have another for you though. Do the rewards level that include Xi3 systems also include the power adapter?

      In for $1,468.00. X7A($1,103 base pledge), upgrade R 464L(+$100), 8gb ram (+$0 base pledge), upgrade 256SSD(+$250), red chassis(+$15). FYI post for those who may want similar.

      Creator David Politis on October 5, 2012

      Good Question. The $1,103 Pledge level includes the R 460H processor. Please add $100 to your pledge for the R 464L processor. Thank you for your support!

    12. Tripleicon.small

      Creator Michael Nielsen on October 5, 2012

      Anyone see where it lists the processor you get with the X7A for $1,103 pledge? I see they added the specs, but list 4 different processor selections. It comes with 8gb of ram and a 64SSD, but I keep reading and don't see the processor listed in the update which links to the pledge choice description.

      If you go to their website at www.xi3.com and click on Buy Now, you can at least see the different configurations for their current model. It originally was at $899, but they dropped it to $499 which will be the price of the new one (not the gaming one.) I'm excited to see it at this price point, especially knowing that it can easily last me a decade with how easy it is to configure and repair. I'm so excited to be a part of this!

      Creator Justin Kreitzburg on October 4, 2012

      I should also point out it's worth poking around their actual website if your really interested in this. The biggest reason I am hanging on to see how this goes is because of the info I found there.

      As great as their product looks on the Kickstarter page the stuff they haven't mentioned here is just as enticing. There is a lot more to their case design then just looks. For example they have a nice external hard drive that fits together with the system. As well as the fact the whole thing itself is can be mounted to any VESA compliant monitor, which isn't earth shattering, but it just shows how well thought out the whole thing is.

      There's plenty of time left so hopefully we see a lot of good things coming from them to help ramp this up.

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Justin Kreitzburg on October 3, 2012

      That's extremely disappointing to hear as I have been hoping they would release real info. I am impressed with the design and concepts they are putting out here, but I have been hesitant to invest without knowing more about the hardware. I think Xi3 is delusional if they think they can try to sell a computer marketed to the gaming community without releasing solid specs. I have high hopes for this style of computer as the future of desktops PCs and it really looks like Xi3 is positioned to fill that space if they don't drop the ball here. I'll be hanging out at the $3 level in hopes they move in the right direction and just don't use Kickstarter as free advertising.

      Actually I've been told that the AMD CPU mentioned is not the one they are using and that they prefer to discuss actual technical specs in PMs rather than in the comments section.

    17. Tripleicon.small

      Creator Michael Nielsen on October 3, 2012

      Based on the specs, including shaders, I agree with the AMD CPU you mentioned.

      I am expecting it to be like a higher end gaming laptop that you can upgrade down the line. I am paying more for the form factor and the ability to upgrade it to some level. I build my own computers for gaming, but they are huge towers that are liquid cooled. While it will be faster, this package allows me to use it in more locations and give it mobility. The lower power draw makes me more comfortable leaving it on all day as a server than my current setup. In for an X7A with 256SSD. Plan on using it for a gaming/media server, as well as for gaming directly.

      I have a new Retina Macbook Pro and an ASUS ROG gaming laptop, but that doesn't fit well in a living room if you want to leave it out and hooked up all the time. This looks like it fits my needs and the dual roles I want to use it for.

    18. Missing_small

      Creator George N. on October 3, 2012

      While they don't come out and say it, from the specs it seems clear that they are using the AMD A10-4600M CPU. You can see the graphics performance here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5831/amd-trinity-review-a10-4600m-a-new-hope/

      It's quite good for integrated graphics, matching the latest Intel Ivy Bridge, but it's still integrated graphics. A current high-end dedicated video card will, of course, blow it out of the water. Of course that same card will cost more than half as much as an X7a, be twice the size and use twice the power.

      Please show us Steambox working on the X7a, and some vids of the box running current games. There is incredible consumer potential here, with the X7a's combination of high performance gaming and graphics on a truly open platform. Capitalize on it.

      I'd love to see some gaming benchmarks for the X7a, since I would consider buying it over a bulky gaming tower any day of the week.
