The first 1,000 backers will be able to grab a standard Dart for just $79 a pop, and latecomers will only have to fork out an extra $10 per piece. Both lots are cheaper than the $119 retail price, but rather than arriving in the summer as expected, these won't be shipped until November -- following product certification and field tests in the earlier months, of course.
As for the limited MacBook version due December, the first 500 units will cost a staggering $148 each, followed by $168 each for the remaining 1,500 units. FINsix explained that this huge price bump is because it has to buy the original MacBook adapters (also $79 each), in order to repurpose the MagSafe and MagSafe 2 connectors for its Darts. The good news is that FINsix is also hoping to work out a long-term agreement with Apple, in order to offer the MagSafe Dart at a much lower price.
For this Kickstarter campaign, the Dart's aluminum body will be available in either blue, magenta, silver, gunmetal or orange. The device is built with a US plug, but it'll work with different voltages and frequencies around the world, so non-US folks can just add a plug adapter. Since the Dart is geared towards road warriors, chances are its backers already have a travel adapter, anyway. FINsix has also previously told us that it's quite easy to scale the Dart in terms of power output, so here's hoping that the startup will consider a 90W or even a 150W version, for the sake of those chunky mobile workstation bricks.
