    So, yeah.

    I've been waiting since- forever? to get a new Intel Mac.
    I got the 3GHZ, 4GBram, 250+500 HD, X1900, Bluetooth+Airport, wireless mouse/ keyboard.

    Order posted 11:46 AM PST.

    Just currious really. I figured loads of others were holding out for today too...

    Got me some Apple care for the rev. A factor.

    Happy Shopping!!!

    Ordered!

    Hi,

    I ordered mine at 22:22 GMT after 'making do' with a core duo mini for a few months....

    Quad 3ghz, 1GB RAM, 250GB HD, BT, 7930GT

    I wanted the 1900 XT + WiFi as well, but I need this new rig ASAP and will get the WiFi card later & can always get a new GFX in a few months...

    My estimated delivery date is the 16th August, I need to work out where I can order another 2GB+ of RAM before then, anyone got suggestions, I *normally* use crucial, but I dont know much about these new FB-DIMM's.

    I wait for the inevitable warping, strange noises, heating/melting and other stories. ;)


    I'm going to hold off on a Mac Pro for a while. Apple have lost my build quality confidence. Do tell us all of your bad experiences - and please make it as graphic as possible. I enjoy an evil grin :p

    I received both of mine yesterday, before I left from October....

    and yes, I got the top of the line machines, maxed out everything, and even snatched up 8 of the 30" ACD's, AFTER they cut the prices.......

    next week I will get Leopard, before I come back from Jan 07 :D
