It ships worldwide, so yes, Spain is a go.

Also, I thought everyone here who's interested should know that there's a vote going on about the final keyboard design right now. Some people actually want to put Alt and Ctrl on the keyboard as opposed to a period and comma. So if anyone wants to stop the madness, you should definitely jet on over and vote! :D

Meh. Labeling is irrelevant.

I'm still trying to decide if the Pandora would be a fit for me. On one hand, I've been wanting a handheld with features like this for a long time. On the other I'm not sure I'd really have a use for it. I don't play games as much as I used to, particularly on the go such that the Pandora would have an advantage over my EEE PC 900. I've had a taste of what real mini-computers with x86 processors are capable of over ones with ARM processors, so the specs aren't as impressive as they once would have been.

Well if you don't want to game on handhelds, I think you've answered your own question. :P

I really want one, but will have to wait until 2009 to get one, as I don't have any money right now :(.

It looks amazing, though, I can't wait to get my hands on one, eventually. I don't mind waiting, though, since it's the homebrew gaming part I'm interested in the longer I wait the better it'll get :D.
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

Well, I may have trouble getting a preorder unit because they're not going to offer PayPal as a payment option. :rolleyes: From the looks of it, these guys are better than GPH when it comes to developing a product, but I sometimes think they have no clue what's going on when it comes to launching their product. By not offering such a widely used payment option, they've effectively alienated a huge chunk of potential buyers like myself. I'll have no problem buying a newly-fixed Wiz if they actually go through with this crap. :?

What? No paypal? What options ARE they providing? Credit card?

I know plenty of people who have set up paypal on their website, it is incredibly easy to do. I have only paypal for online purchases as well, so this may make the pandora a non-starter for me. :?

Exactly, and we're not alone. Get over to GP32x and argue your point, I'm getting slaughtered trying to hold my own with a couple other guys! :lol: I guess their theory is that there's a nominal seller's fee, but more importantly, PayPal can "freeze" any account Craig sets up. Understood, but the stock market could crash, too. :roll: I semi-retract my previous statements in that I truly believe that the team is trying to make PayPal a payment option, but they're not exactly stepping in to stop the crucification of anyone who wants to use it by a certain few members...

Now I remember why I never leave Benheck. :P

I'll probably end up getting one around (and hopefully before) MGC. I'm definantly not pre ordering one though, I want to make sure all the bugs get worked out before I buy, and hope for a price drop. :)
