    ...for the release of the dual 1.8 G5s.

    I put in an order last night for a new dual 2 Ghz box. :(

    if you want to change you should be able to call them up and change it unless it has shipped already.

    otherwise, you got a kick ass computer anyway!

    No, actually, you're OK, you're still getting a top-end box.

    What I can't understand is why they didn't release a faster box. If they're going to get to 3GHz by June '04 (or Dec. '04 FTM), shouldn't they be releasing a faster box? Strange.

    It looks like a correction. Apple looked at what they were selling, and they needed a better alternative.. a better value. Maybe the 1.8GHz machines just weren't selling.. who knows...

    Either way, is $500 thatr much money? Take the dual 2.0 and be happy..

    I'm ecstatic. Since I'm laboring on my Mac 12+ hours/day, $500 isn't a lot of money.

    However, like the guy who washes his car and manages to end a drought, I'm just glad I could help. ;)

    Funny thing is, I hadn't even notice the drought.

    Enjoy your new mac, I'm certainly jealous. :)
