    Anyone else having trouble with Gearbest.com shipping the Lapbook SE? I’ve been told a 3 week delay.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Not for my unit, but I ordered a while ago. However, I had a similar delay with the Teclast F5 which is why I got it so late. Seems they have supply issues or Chuwi can’t make enough in time.

    Thanks for your reply @chris. I took forever to pull the trigger on a new computer, and Gearbest said fairly quick shipping, but I made the mistake of assuming that it would get out of the door at Gearbest in a couple of days.

    Maybe what this means is that I will wait for the 8 GB model. But of you saw the condition of the current computer I’m using you’d say, “buy anything – now”!

    Thanks for your reviews. They make a difference for those of us who want this kind of tech. Much appreciated. I bought both the Redmi Note 5 and Lapbook SE based on your reviews.

    The Lapbook SE is great, just replaced my Teclast F7 with it.

    Also, I still have my Redmi Note 5, I’ll be checking out the Redmi 6 Pro soon. basically the same phone almost but a few changes.

    Did you still have a Lapbook SE you wanted to sell?

    The Redmi Note 5 is a great phone. I’m so happy with the turn of events where “tech enough” is replacing $1,000 plus phones. It also helps that I now have warranty support with a Xiaomi phone here in Thailand.

    I ordered my Lapbook SE on the 4th Nov on GearBest and it is still yet to ship despite numerous chats with their online support.

    If you are ordering this item I suspect you are in for a looooong wait.

    I eventually got my laptop – something like a month after I ordered it. I was very frustrated with Gearbest and thought that they bamboozled me quite a bit in saying that it would ship in less than a week – when in reality it wasn’t in stock while they were selling it.

    It’s a great laptop. I had a lot of trouble moving the OS to the SSD drive but that’s because I don’t really understand boot records well enough to make it easy.

    At this point I might wonder about waiting and ordering the same laptop with 8 GB (it’s coming out, right? Not sure). I’m quite happy with 4 GB. I can use the machine with lots of tabs open in Firefox, then switch programs with little or no hesitation. In a perfect scenario an 8 GB model would have been available, and I would have bought it over the 4 GB version, but I’m very satisfied with 4 GB.

    As of today I am still waiting for the lapbook se to ship, I might just have to cancel it as this is getting ridiculous. 2month+ wait time isn’t normal.

    That’s too dang long. I would have such a desire to cancel just to say “piss off”. It does seem like @chris is posting about some alternatives to the Lapbook SE these days.

    I hope you get something soon. I’m happy with the Lapbook SE (except that I dropped it and bent the case!), and it’s seemingly quite good for the price, but I’m not sure it’s 2+ months good.

    Well you are not alone. I’ve ordered mine on the 22th Nov and status is still “paid”.

    do not hold you breath for the 8GB
    for everything above 4 GB M$ charges near double for the same Home OS license now.
    That is why the N3450 had often 6GB because that was before the M$ price hike.

    Did everyone finally get their Lapbook SEs or did you cancel the order? Just curious. Gearbest was quite frustrating on this one. I wonder how bad it got.

    Totally get that. I am glad you did. Will you be getting the 8 GB version that @chris reviewed recently? (I am forgetting the brand name right now).
