    I was wondering if anyone actualy has a new PowerMac yet?

    If so, how do they run?

    I'm still trying to decide if i should get a dual 2 or use all my money and get a Quad 2.5.

    Anyone on here know how well other Apps will work over 4 processors?

    More specificly, does anyone on here know how well audio Apps like ProTools 7 might work with the new Quads?

    I don't want to spend alot of money to find programs are still a few years behind and can only use 2 processors properly.

    Actually that's the ship by date... don't forget delivery time.

    And don't forget that Apple could surprise everyone and get the first ones out after only 3 weeks. Or they could surprise no one and be late.

    When did you order yours? And was it a CTO unit? I did a CTO on the 19th with an order time or 9:51AM PDT. And yes, mine says ship by the 17th as well.

    CWONLINE.co.uk say they have the new systems in stock (and they just knocked off about £200 of the older stock).

    I emailed them to ask if they had them in their hands now or not.

    Of course that would just be the 2.0GHz and 2.3 GHz systems.

    Yeah thats what i meant, didnt look at the Quad since i cant afford one. I don't want to drool at stuff i cant afford and all that ;)


    I want to see a review of the new PowerMacs, like what Hard Drives they are using, do they have less fans? Quieter? ect.
