    Hey Guys!
    I'm going to purchase a G5 but I've been hearing a lot about new Pro Keyboards/Mice and new displays coming at Apple Paris...

    My question is... if I purchase the G5 now and it won't ship until after Paris do you think Apple would ship the new mouse & keyboard with it or would I have to purchase it extra?

    Also should I wait with purchasing a display?

    Apple displays are in the middle of their cycle according to http://buyersguide.macrumors.com, so if you buy a display now it probably won't be updated for quite a while, since the apple LCDs have long periods between updates.:)

    The bluetooth mouse and keyboard are not likely to be standard equipment. It would add too much to the cost of the system, and many people don't need/don't care about a wireless solution. If you are interested in these items, wait till after Paris, and add them as a BTO option. I'm sure it will add like $50 - $100 to the overall cost.

    Hmmm... maybe I'll wait until Expo to be on the safe side before ordering...

    My black Pro Mouse died yesterday, I and just know that new Pro Keyboards are coming now because of this failure, it's called Karma and it ruins my life... :eek: :p :p

    So I've had to order one of those nasty white Pro Mouse things.... :eek: :rolleyes:

    Oh well, as soon as the new puppies are here, I'll drop the £££ and buy one, then I'll keep the white one safely locked up for a rainy day... ;) :D
