So guys what do you think? What day will it be announced, and how sure are you?
Aug. 13, right when the clock strikes midnight.
I'm 75% sure.
I remember hearing something about the 15th for new PowerMacs. Either way, it will probably be next week.
Guess we'll find out on tuesday
I am not sure I will be able to wait until tuesday... But if i do manage to wait.. and they arent announced then i am gonna have to consider launching a boycot Apple campaign =P
Who knows, i want them soon though, i cant wait.lol
I'm thinkin' the twelfth
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?
Re: The 24th
i was talking to a guy who worked at a local mac store and he was telling me that there will be new powermacs at the end of the month.....
I bet that they ship on the 24th w/ Jaguar but are announced on the 13th just to shut us all up until MWSF
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.
ok, this is why they WILL come out this week
According to just about everyone the stores are out of powermacs. So what are they gonna selll for the 13 days till jaguar will be realeased? POwermacs monday,tues,wed,thurs or maybe even fri. who knows....
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.
looks like the 12th is out
Uhhh dude here in the Pacific US its 2 min till twelve so i think it still possiblity.
PMacs released the 13th, ship the 24th. Along with jag...
Not the 12th. It's 12:20 Apple time.
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!
Isn't it only 9:08 apple time?
Probably none of these days
Apple is just updated their retail website:
Well if you are updating the retail website, why don't you take the opportunity to add the new machines? I mean if it is so close to the update date wouldn't it be best to do two jobs at once. I'd save the new deals for when new machines are released.
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.
That's spelled boycott.
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.
Ill try to call the apple store here in miami , to see if they have them in stock, and see if I can make them "slip up" and spit out important info, done it before, and it works
