    If new g5's are announced in June, when do you think we might see them actually being shipped?

    It'll either be an announcement for pre-orders, or that the machine is shipping now.

    With the problems the 970fx has been having -- who knows.

    But there are hints of two machines right now.

    Looking like our Rev. B machine (aka Speed bump 970Fx), and the possibility of a machine using a new chipset.

    The possibility of the new chipset can be either the next generation PPC9xx with PCIe/DDR2/etc., or a PPC970 capable consumer chipset.

    Hard to be definite. Some items, such as the last ibook/powerbook revision were available straight away, others like the XServe G5 were only "paper launches"

    I'm hoping sooner than later. I have been waiting for the dual 3ghz for a while, and can only wait until the end of summer/early Fall before I would absolutley need to get it. I would hate to wait for the dual 3, only for it to not actually ship until after november. I'd then probably would have to settle for a dual 2. :(

    Although, in that itself would not be a bad thing! :)

    Have a little faith in Stevie J. people! Who's to say they won't ship right away ;) ?

    IBM may have the most effect on when the machines might possibly ship once they are announced.

    My bet, if announced it'll be a paper launch with possibly the lowest-end model released right away. The real NEW models will be shipped 3 months later.

    I think that the low and mid range machines will ship immediately with the dual 3.0Ghz machines shipping in September.

    I agree, that is usually the way Apple handles a new launch. :)
