Cool :cool:

Still seems early ish though for a major update... it ain't even 7am in NY yet.

I can't remember what time the UK Store went down last time, but they were down for a couple of hours, so that would sync with a 9am release on the East Coast of America.

The last couple of days I haven't been able to find Airport Express on the UK store though you can order it via it's page on the main site. When it's in the basket it's only described as 'New Airport'. I guess that unless the US site goes down as well they could just be fixing that?

Yep - licking my lips... could be the new displays, could be bumped Powermacs, could be iPod Mini or Airport Express (for us Aussie troglodytes that can't order them yet), but probably not iMac G5 or 4G iPod (if they are close) since they'd probably be reserved for WWDC - but so interesting that there's so many product announcements / updates so close to the date...

On another note, good to hear your Powerbook arrived Aswitcher, mine is in transit for delivery tomorrow - great week this will be :)

It has got to be good lets hope its the powermacs. But i would have thopught they would leave them for WWDC.

Apparently the rumours are true and we're looking at new dual 2.5GHz G5s with liquid cooling and 8x superdrives... at 2159 euros including VAT - something like USD 3000 or AUD 4000 I would imagine...

If it is the new G5's and displays it begs the question what goodies are there going to be at WWDC? New G5 iMac I hope, hopefully not in the gay white 'dirt-magnet' enclosure it currently is.

Switch is finally going well :)

Still getting everything sorted out and wondering how much more punishment my wallet can take with all this new mac stuff ;)

Yeah I hope they add this aswell as the new PMs. I want to find out the edu pricing on a Airport express and get one on order, but the link from the hardware page makes you pay full price and its no where to be seen on the site.

worder why they made the 1.8 model worse by making it pci only instead of pci-x

the stores are back up so it appears that hte rumors from the other day are true. i would think that the gap from dual 2 to dual 2.5 is too large!

All the stores seem to be back up now, i like the new line more than i did before. Did anyone buy the 1.6Ghz version? I think most of the appeal of the G5 PowerMac was the fact that you have two G5 processors :) that might be just me though. Are we not execting to see the Dual 3Ghz now though :(?

Seems like the prices have dropped quite a bit there? The Dual 1.8Ghz machine is looking very buyable right now, even if it is now the low end machine :).
