That's a good point about the network port, unfortunately as I understand it the foundation wanted to do a beta build and test of that configuration (I guess there is little risk of anything bad, but always worth double checking these things - such is life it is the last place you look).
Also, there is a good chance that the ModelB factory will be maxed out (as long as there are no short term issues with the supply) so I hope they will use the ModelA production to bring another source online...
Not sure how the UK manufacture idea stands now that the RAM is doubled (demand is higher) and deals with RS/Farnell. ***runs for cover***
Guess we will wait and see.
