    Interesting.. But yeah, they are still backordered due to display outages..

    Wtf? Are we in the military around here? Where did that come from and when was the last time you heard that spoken?

    FRU isn't a military term, it is used by many companies. However the usage here is incorrect. A FRU is a replaceable part and not an entire phone. On a phone a FRU would be a battery or battery door.

    Thanks for clarifying that. For an exceedingly lazy man like myself, I'd still rather type FRU than replacement. Those 8 extra keystrokes add up :p
