Elonex's One: orginally due this month

Register Hardware readers who coughed up the £10 "reservation deposit" required to place an advance order for the Elonex One have no been told that only "early ship (beta test)" machines will now go out before the end of June.

"Remaining deliveries... will be shipped on a first ordered, first delivered basis... will be made prior to the new school year," an email sent out by Elonex pledged.

Elonex One and friend: in your home by September

Next term kicks off in early September in the UK, which is fair way to wait for a Small, Cheap Computer you may have ordered as early as February, which is when Elonex announced and began taking orders for its new machine.

Elonex's website notes that its initial batch of 200,000 One and One+ machines - the latter ups the memory from 128MB to 256MB, the on-board solid-state storage from 1GB to 2GB, and adds Bluetooth - have all been sold, which adds up to £2m in deposits.

Both machines sport an Eee like 7in, 800 x 480 display, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, three USB 2.0 ports, a three-cell battery and a "splash-proof" removable keyboard. The 300MHz LNX Code 8 processor and all the other internals sit behind the screen rather than beneath the keyboard.
