This thread is for a single purpose: to compare notes on ship dates for iMac G5s. There are other threads for discussing the new iMac G5 models and who bought what. Please report what you hear from Apple or the vendor you ordered from about expected ship dates, so we can share the facts/gossip and plan our lives around the big moments when our new iMacs arrive on our doorsteps. I assume that ship dates depend on vendor, order date, model ordered, and maybe whether it's an education order. I ordered the 20" model on August 31, 2004 from the online Apple Store, non-education. Currently, Apple says it will ship "on or before 09/29/2004".
