No. When I ordered them it already said that they were not available
until the end of November. I've ordered the 4GB/512MB version, not the
2GB/256MB one which was in stock a while ago.

My order currently says "Awaiting release on 30 Nov 2007" for the white
one, and "Awaiting release on 21 Dec 2007" for the black one.

All stores seem to be showing that which is what I'd expect.

I'm surprised you say the build quality is better. I find the build
quality of the classmate to be pretty good. It's quite robust.
Especially compared to the OLPC. But then I have not handled an Eee PC
