if they are annouced prior to the 24th, would they ship on or about the 24th with jaguar installed?
if they are announced on the 24th, when would they actually ship?
i'm a relative computer nebie, but why does apple keep upcoming tech so secretive, while it seems like the pc side is more open in releasing info about upcoming tech?

My bet is that on the 13th we will have new machines. I just called the Apple Store here in Chicago and said I was interested in buying 5 DP1ghz machines and was seeing if they had them in stock. The employee said they had 0 but were receiving a shipment of NEW powermacs on Tuesday morning. (Not we will be recieving a NEW shipment of powermacs) Could just be a wording slip up, but sounds like Tuesday the 13th is the day to me.

i really wouldn't judge by the english of some lackey working in a retail store. i have said the same thing. we should have new ones in by *blank*. It's just the way people say things. At the same time I believe that monday or tues we will see new PMacs. I agree with the sentiment that they prob won't ship until Shaguar does.

I was told the 13th. But there is also something going on the 23rd, namely OS X. So either single releases on those dates or the 13th is simply an announcement for the towers to be released booting X on the 23rd.

I'm tipping 13th, but I really wouldn't be surprised if it was the 24th.

I hope it's the 13th... I can't wait to see what Steve-o has in store for us!

It's only 9:30 in Cupertino, so we may yet see an announcement today, Apple usually doesn't release at midnight, but calls a conference and issues a press release the day of announcement, still, I kind of doubt today, tomorrow may be another story, however.;)

Is anyone else her as amazed as I am- at how quiet Apple has been able to keep this? Here it is on the eve of (another) hopeful release date and only a few sites are saying tomorrow. It seems all guesswork even still. Since if not tomorrow, then there's still the 24th...then there are 2 events in Sept where they could be introduced- and another in Oct.
Not to mention- nobody has the slightest idea of what they are going to release....what speeds, what chips- anything.
I remember when the rumor sites all "knew" everything way in advance- and were almost always right....especially when it was this close to a major release/upgrade.
As much as I'm hoping that new machines are offered tomorrow- I'm oddly equally impressed in how Apple been able to keep this.
