Hi

Anybody ordered the Powermac Quad?

What delivery date do you have? Has it changed?

Which graphicscard did you order?


Anybody else that knows anything about the Quad delivery date?

Wow, that is a really long time...

I don't like Apple's new online page to check the updates because it doesn't tell you the status of the order, just that mine is going to hopefully be shipped on or before the 17th...

Wow, that's way too long. I wonder why it's taking so long.

i was yesterday at the bulington, ma apple store. i had its grand opening on nov 5th, 2 weeks after the release of the dual cores. they still don't have any dual cores in the shop. not even a 2.0 or 2.3.

i can understand them not having a quad demo yet. but the dual core 2.3 should be there by now!

i get the suspicion that ibm can't deliver enough chips again:(

The apple store in downtown Dallas has plenty of the dual-core systems, at least the 2.0s. Of course, they don't have the quad yet, but the others are there. So at least some stores have them. I messed with one on Friday.:D

How's the new Burlington Store? I haven't made my way there yet...

the thread had already been removed by Apple

January '06 is a ridiculous shipping estimate
they should at least try to deliver it before Christmas
some wealthy businessmen can arrange to buy a new private jet faster than that

Does anyone in this forum have a shipped order, or receive their machine?

Boy apple sure does comb these forums. They yanked that thread almost as soon as this thread was posted. Hmmm.

No, my jet's still in transit via fedex ground.

that's one of the reasons that I'm not going to buy one until they are actually available....

by the time they start shipping en mass, there might be additional options.

And additional problems. Best to wait.
