    ATI's homepage is plastered with a huge graphic of the new card. What a tease since we can't get it yet. I heard that Keynote was having issues with some ATI drivers. Could this be it? Predictions for availability? I've been waiting to push the ORDER button for two weeks now...

    Can you not order it?? I would think that Apple would let you "pre-order" a system with the card... but notify you that the system will not ship until the card comes in. They have done this with other systems, like with the GF4Ti, in fact, they gave you a 'loaner' video card that they let you keep!

    No they aren't doing that. They just say it is coming. Not giving a date, BUT, putting it as a BTO option for no reason. Genius. :rolleyes:
