I'd also like to know how much does it weight and its size (for shipping info.) Thanks.
Based on this answer by The Giant, I'd say there will be planned inventory for you to order in April:

Based on previous books, we know that about 75% of all the order we're going to get will be in the first two weeks, and the other 25% will be over the next 3 months, so we'll extrapolate the print run number from what we get in March.

That sounds like a great idea.
Also, I've found On the Origin of PC's available from a third party distributor, if there's no way to better share the wealth I'll buy it from them.
