Battery Shipping

As battery is considered sensitive material, shipping laptops with batteries costs extra and some countries does not allow private battery shipping (Russia for example). Thus, no CMOS battery is included in the shipment. The cost of battery shipping is $35 and the laptop can be shipped with up to 2 batteries.

Coreboot

As coreboot is a potentially a risky procedure, prebuilds with coreboot shipped are not encouraged. Please look into building and learning about coreboot. Coreboot can be preflashed but the CH341a must be purchased to recover from potential bricks.

Parts List

This are individual parts of the X330 that I could ship. As modding the X330 requires both soldering and dremelling, parts can be provided to skip these 2 procedures
