"Apple has delayed the release of new Power Macs, which it had been expected to release yesterday. Sources confirmed to MacUser last week that Apple has lined up a range of speed-bumped Power Macs, including the first to use a 1GHz PowerPC processor. As we reported, Apple had originally set aside the provisional date of yesterday, 22 January, for the release of these machines, but we learned late last night that factors had conspired against this plan, and forced Apple to delay any announcement. A principal reason that may have contributed to the decision is the number of existing Power Macs that remain in the channel. US sources report that these are continuing to sell well, despite anticipation of new models. However UK delears have revealed that they are having difficulty getting any stock of Power Macs at all at present. Owing to the last-minute date change, Apple is still sitting on the new models, and sources indicate an announcement will now not come until next week at the earliest.Apple has delayed the release of new Power Macs, for reasons best known to itself." This backs up a large portion of what we've been reporting and hearing from our sources. The key point is that the new machines are not expected to be released until next week - the week of the 29th - a date that a call to any Apple store will confirm is the new expected release of the iMac. Clearly, as we reported yesterday, Apple is attempting to synchronize the releases of both new lines. It is important for our readers to realize that there are no absolutes at Apple. Even if an article is accurate at time of publishing, Jobs' is known for last-minute changes. Above all, this latest fiasco has driven this frustrating point home". What does every1 make of this?
