    I ordered a dual 2ghz PowerMac G5 the day they came out, and as many reported the estimated ship date said "On or before 9/02" despite the fact that Steve Jobs said August in the keynote address.

    Well good news! It new says estimated ship date is "On or before 8/29"

    Wow, imagine that - they're going to be a little earlier. Nice, but I'll believe it when I see it. Apple's track record with new hardware is not exactly stellar ;)

    Actually, if memory serves, Apple has usually beaten it's first forecasted ship times. The QS's were shipped early, the imac LCDs were a few days early and some of the gig pBooks shipped immediately. So I don't see Apple a bad track record for Apple shipping.
