    This seems to have quietly slipped by but European Apple resellers last week got notification of G5 shipping dates.

    1.8 and 2 GHZ models will not ship until the 3rd week of September. I presume 1.6 models are still on for shipping before 2nd September.

    Anyone got any definite news on the American market?,

    Down the hall and to the right.
    Yeah. Select a G5 at the US AppleStore site, and go to continue, and keep going all the way to the page where it says Login to complete your order and whatnot... that describes what you are going to purchace. Est. Shipping Date: 7 - 10 weeks.

    Not much of a big surprise. Apple always promises things way before they manage to deliver.....

    I'm not ordering mine until they arrive in the stores and even then I might wait. I'm thinking of getting one when it comes loaded with Panther....

    Actually, someone on the forum reported last week that they had been notified that their dual G5 ship date had changed from September 2 to August 29. Of course, these are both "on or before" dates.

    Well, according to the Apple Store (NL) itself, delivery will take 7-10 weeks. That puts it in the middle op September.

    There must be an order que, those who ordered first will get their mac in august but those who order now will get theirs in september. Thus it seems they are getting many orders for the new powermac.

    I am planning to place an order for a PM G5 dual 2.0 within 2 weeks. It's going to be a lonnnggg wait before I see a G5, if recent orders won't ship till the end of Sept. I'm crossing my fingers for shipping prior to mid Sept. The wait is going to drive me crazy.

    I ordered my G5 Dual about a week ago.
    Ofcourse shipping date on the Order status is still On or before oct. 3. But this means it could be shipped before the 3rd, right? I am wondering when I am gonna be notified the "REAL" shipping date.

    Guys, tell me your experiences on the shipping date with Apple.

    :p (I am like peeking the Order status every time I sit in front of my ibook.... can't wait!!)

    I feel the same way...I just ordered my Dual 2 GHz yesterday, and I feel it's going to be forever...I start high school in September, and the machine is "On or before Oct. 10." I know the PowerBook G4 owners (17") had a horrible time with their shipping dates, but I hope Apple actually can deliver on that date. From what I remember, Apple was at least 3 weeks late for most of the buyers, but I couldn't stand waiting until November for a machine ordered the last day of July.
