    re: G5s being unveiled

    Yes, hopefully most of the stores will have their demos up and running today. Having the fancy displays up doesn't necessarily mean the computers are in, though. The Chandler, AZ Apple store has had their new G5 display up for several days now...with a conspicuously empty pedestal where an actual G5 will go. They said they would have some by Friday (today), though.

    I just passed the Boston Apple store (Cambridge Side Galleria Mall) and there was a huge display, but there was a real small sign that said "coming soon" on it,

    I will try and go to the Bell. Sq. Apple store this weekend and see if they got the G5s. If they are will they be on display? Like for use?

    It's curious why Apple didn't make it the highest priority to at least ship a demo G5 PowerMac to each Apple Store as quickly as was humanly possible. There are a lot of people that might order one if they could actually see and test one out in person first.

    Why issue a press release on Monday saying that they're now shipping when you can't even go into one of their retail stores to look at one even several days later? Plus the Apple Store employees don't know anything more about the availability of the G5s than we do on these forums. Just seems like they're putting the cart before the horse here somewhat...

    The Palo Alto Apple Store has all those G5 decorations up, but in the store window there's just a "Coming Soon" sign thing. They still don't have a display unit! :(

    I have a feeling that Apple is going to try and fulfill as many retailer orders as possible before stocking their own stores because of all of the flack they've been getting from other retailers. It would actually be a good PR move for Apple to do this just so they don't start looking dodgy to the press.

    Regards,

    Ok, with how backed up they are with web orders, it'll be a while before any retailers acutaly have some in stock. We're just talking about a display model.

    The santa monica store on the 3rd street promenade has 2 working display models, and one in the window. OMG it is so fast.... I played with it for hours.
