It's software this time!

Should davesha skip the queue so he can work directly on the Pyra?

It's more expensive, yes. In general, all special colors are more expensive than normal ones. None of them should be toxic - we're in Germany, I doubt toxic coating is allowed for normal devices here :)
Of course they're not toxic for users or workers. I didn't mean that. Sorry if I didn't use the right word. I just wondered whether the impact to the environment for the production of one or the other pigment could
be different, even if both are tolerable. That's maybe hard to know because it would take a complex tracing and evaluation of materials and so on... Normally people just makes sure to follow the rules and that's it.
It's not worth to compare impact beyond compliance. I didn't know the difference in price was due to stock volume, I thought it might be due to pigment production cost or something like that and thought if the ingredients were different maybe the impact too.
I was just looking for some reason to choose, since visually both are more than good enough and I didn't know how to break the tieup.

I had checked over the weekend, just in case, but I checked again today, in Gmail's spam folder, and I found the email less than 12 hours old. I picked black (because I was a bit torn, so I let the price difference make the decision) and I got the E-SATA adapter, since I have an E-SATA drive dock readily available, and not getting the adapter to make it work for the Pyra just didn't seem to make sense. Maybe I won't use it much, but it would really bother me to not be able to use it when I already have everything but the adapter.

Edit: In my experience most E-SATA drives have their own power supply/adapter anyway, so the lack of power through the adapter isn't going to mean much.
It's SATA II but not eSATA, @EvilDragon didn't check the differences before writing the technical specifications. See @hns' earlier post in this thread: https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/its-software-this-time.99105/post-1675571

Could you have used your pre-preorder code as a partial payment for the preorder? In that case it would only be one you ordered.
If you think you ordered two, maybe wait a day (in case mail is delayed). Check spam and then you might have to contact ED.
I preordered 2 pyras when the preorders started, and used my pre preorder voucher as partial payment. I got 2 400€ vouchers, so they should definetly be registered. It could be that the second email got lost because of that German email problem. I got one emprty email and one with a survey link.

Empty mail is due to some locale issue ED made with German language mails. He already had sent the mails again.

I came to 741,21 if i give 626,05 € x 1,16 + 15 €, but at the End, i think its dosnt matter that much, 745 € is a good meassure, + - 15 €..

But this is something that ditnt have to discuss that much, as the Final Prices are something EvilDragon had to calculate,
If if you have around 800 € left on your Bank Acount, i think it dosnt harm..
