    Just got word from Apple that my G5 1.6 w/ bluetooth was shipped today. YIPPEEEEE! Ordered it Sep 21st and Apple was saying it would ship prior to 10/06 so they met that target. Can't wait for it to come and see what OS, Panther?????? Doesn't matter, I'm back in the Mac world after a long absence. Talk about excited. I'll keep you posted on Panther or not. Maybe I'll get lucky??? Maybe I'll get a coupon???? We shall see.
    Cheers

    it doesn't ship with panther, it ships with 10.2.7 (G5). You do get a coupon, though there's no guarantee they'll let you use it for Panther...

    Fingers crossed. I just got one too.

    ships with 10.2.7.
    i don't have one though. i doubt it will be panther before it is even announced, so don't get your hopes up too high.

    Update. My G5 shipped with 10.2.8 I believe. Sure that everyone is aware that Apple has a deal for all G5s to upgrade to Panther for $21. My check was in the mail immediately. If Jaguar is this neat Panther has got to absolutely rock! I can't wait. BTW, I got some funny looking coupons in the box. Anyone know what they are for???

    This is the mail I got from Apple:

    Since my G5 was ORDERED before aug 16th they say I won't get the upgrade kit.. I tried to reason with them that my G5 arrived long after 16th aug but that didn't help. Last time Apple Store for me..
