no, i don't think anyone has one yet. those rumors of people being shipped G5's were bs. as soon as they start shipping and people are taking delivery, trust me, you'll know.

This reminds me of when the 17" powerbooks cam out :eek:

I'm sure the delays wont be that bad though.

Early shipments were not BS. Those shipments were likely to be part of Apples "Early Access Program" for strategic customers that want to participate. These "Early Access" folks are covered by NDA.

Internal Apple developers have had G5s to work with for some time. Gee, I guess they would rather keep their jobs, than leak information to feed the rumor boards.

Just because there hasn't been leaks of info, doesn't mean the machines aren't around. It just means that some people honor the agreements (NDA) they sign. People in business relationships tend to behave a bit differently than the P2P crowd.
