Unfortunately idk when it will ship.

   

Just a quick heads-up: I've ordered the Node Saturday night from the UK Equip shop. Yesterday (Monday) they've sent me a UPS tracking number and it's most definitely coming. That is, it's in stock with them.

Get Node x 2 here. One from China and another one from Taiwan. Will test soon. Around USD380 (including shipping) each.

It is.

BTW,  UPS has just delivered the package. Will unbox it as soon as it gets warmer.

Both are TI83 chips. No problem to be recognised by Mac OS Sierra 10.12.2.

Websites, please!

And by the way, Blitz Micro increased the price to 330+GBP, without shipping!! l.ike bhphotovideo increased it too . They are taking advantage of it... I wish amazon could start selling that, and take rid of these scammers... What a shame!!
