    I've been following the Dual 2.7GHz PowerMacs for about 3 weeks now and was about to order mine. Up until this morning the estimated shipping date occillated from 1 - 3 days to 3 - 5 days until this afternoon. The ship date now is 2 - 3 weeks. Does this mean anything other than there stock is down? Maybe a new product or some type of change? Any feedback from more experienced Mac buyers would be helpful. Thanks.

    my guess would be given the 2.7 uses water cooling they just ran short on available units. They are more than likely trying to play catchup now.

    I'd wait until at least tomorrow (or maybe even next Tuesday) just to be safe though.

    Buyer's Guide suggests it's way to early for an update.

    .....Unlesss Apple has something insanely great they can't wait to show us.

    My guess is that there was an extra large influx in orders.

    more maybe questionable info regarding PowerMac shipping estimates...

    Last night I happened to be speaking with an individual in Customer Service at Apple regarding my ship date. She pulled up my order (a University order) and she said something like "your system looks like it's delayed do to the new updates". She said, "everything looks like it's delayed till the 24th". I don't really know what that means but intially thought to myself that she was referring to the updates that happened in April but then i dismissed that. Like I said, I'm not sure what she meant but that is what she said. I'll know more around the 24th of August I guess.

    Either way that sucks having to wait the best part of a month for your computer Cineman :(. It'd be much nicer if Apple were a bit more transparent with their delivery times. I'd hate to be an authorised reseller and have to keep letting a customers know that their order is going to be 10 times longer than expected! I hope you enjoy it when it gets there though :).

    I was quoted 2-3 weeks two months ago when I ordered mine.

    It came in two days.

    :rolleyes:

    I ordered a 2.7 a week ago

    I ordered a 2.7 a week ago and my shipping date seems first of September. It sucks. I got my 23 Cinema and iSight but waiting for the PowerMac. I hope I get it before 9/1.

    The worst thing is, I can just walk around the corner and buy it from Comp USA but then I can't get student discount.

    Check now

    Estimated Ship: 7-10 business days

    Today it changed again. I hope this means that I will get mine sooner than 9/01.

    Update: I received my PM today

    No new hardware or products announced in the last 4 weeks so it shipped as ordered. I guess the delay was based on a hardware shortage or slowing production on the 2.7's for their announcement in Paris?? Ha.

    I'm happy though, I've got my PM's at home and work now and some big, bold and beautiful 30" panels. Yee haw!

    I don't imagine any new announcements until MacExpo Paris - it'd be nice to see something then....

    Noooooooooo! Don't buy it! In case you havn't been following the forums that much, you should know that it is VERY likely that the high-end PowerMac will be updated on September 20th (maybe with Dual Core Chips). Wait until you buy! Powerbooks are gonna be updated too.
