according to the apple store they estimated shipping dates for the computer are 7-10 weeks.

I ordered a custom built G5 on June 30th, yesterday my estimated ship date was bumped up to "on or before 8/29/03" prior to that it was 9/2/03. I think that's a positive sign. Only a few days earlier but I'll take that over a delay :)

I have a feeling they will push it to the end of august but send otu the machines in august so they can sey they worked within their estimate

i have a hunch that some of it might depend on panther. i heard that panther takes advantage of 64 bit CPU's, but thats just a hunch. i wouldnt mind jaguar. also, does it come with a monitor, or do you have to purchase those seperately

monitors are sold separately:

Am I the only one whose shipping date estimate hasn't been changed to 8/29?

Do I have to worry, if my order still says "Being Reviewed"?!?

You have to buy the displays separately.

Maybe they don't think you're G5 worthy ;)
