    I was at the Apple Store online, and PowerMacs 2.5 ghz are now shipping in 5-7 days. Could this mean that IBM is having better luck at achieving higher speeds for the G5 chip?

    Well it has been at 1-2 weeks forever, so I was thinking that this could signify success with the G5 chip

    I guess the current demand is not as high as the initial demand. People who need and afford a Dual 2.5GHz mostly already own one.

    Well that was my initial thought as well, but PowerMac updates should be happening soon. That would coincide with higher chip speeds, possibly, and a good indication of this is if more 2.5 ghz chip speeds are being reached/produced which indicates, possibly yet again, a larger supply even though the demand is the same.
