This is the mintyPi V3 Pre-order page which I will explain below what it is and the time frame of when parts should be shipped out once they are received from being assembled.
The Pre-Order guarantees you a kit that is to be shipped out once orders arrive from the factory and these Pre-Orders also fund the cost of the various components as well as the PCBs and their assembly.
Time Frame from ordering to receiving finished mintyPi V3 Kits:
December 23, 2018: Pre-Orders are Open
