On the store it says the top-end models will ship in 3-5 days...finally!
I think this means that the top-end model will be kept in the update. (Est. April 26, 2005)
Better order quick, because once they announce the new machines -- the order time will go from 3-5 days, to 6-8 weeks.
If you're really lucky, you'll get your new top of the line PowerMac within 90 days.
Or 6-8 months.
So the 1.8GHz SP PM will stay at $1,499. Bummer. How I hoped that spot would be filled by a nice 2.0GHz DP PM.
They are only updating the "Top Dog"? That seems silly. Any word on the updated imacs?
the imacs have next business day shipping, so who knows - which sucks since I'm looking at getting one for my wife....
so even if they update the new hardware this week it won't be in our hands for some time?
With so many hardware lines rumoured to be updating, it's going to be an exciting few weeks.
I agree. I'm going to be checking the Apple sites so much. I hoping the updates are better than expected on the Powermacs. I'm starting to get worried, about this only updating the top of the line models.
Just remember that all the machines will have to start shipping with Tiger soon, so there's a good chance that a lot of things will get updated but the top end ones usually get more press.
say they do come out with new PM's on the 26th do you think they would include tiger since it is only a few days away?
i cant wait to get a PM!
Your wife is very lucky Mr. Anderson, hope that she realizes.
When it was mentioned about Power Mac G5 delays of 6 - 8 weeks, it brought back memories. My hope is that Apple learned its lesson last time. Hopefully the delay in the release of the update is due to them having adequate stock for shipping.
Wasn't there an article on MR a few days ago saying that PM supply was above demand? Perhaps the shipping estimates on the lower end models haven't changed because they just still have too many of them?
i read that to. hopefully they will be giving those away with a sweet discount when the new PM's arrive.
All duals are 3-5 days.
UK store says 7 days for all dual models. The single 1.8 still shows 24 hours. I guess next week anytime before Friday we will see Powermac updates. Tuesday would make sense rather than a last minute rush on Tiger launch day.
