xlr8yourmac.com posts a reader email claiming to have received his Dual 2.0GHz PowerMac. The reader has subsequently sent in photos as well as an Apple System Profile report. Further tests/benchmarks pending.

If true, this would represent one of the first Dual G5 2.0GHz machines to be shipped to an individual.

[Ed note: The G5 photo gallery at the top of Xlr8yourmac.com is unrelated to this story. One at Xlr8yourmac.com, scroll down to "Reader reports his EDU order Dual G5 arrived"]

I totally hear you - by the time these things get out to the masses, they WON'T be the fastest computers anymore! I wonder how all the people who have ordered G5s feel being the owners of "virtual computers" right now. ;)

Oh, and the scary thing is, in 2023, a 22GHz machine will no doubt be very slow - I'm sure some sort of "optical psychic computer" will be around by then. And people will still be waiting for their 15" G5 PowerBook updates...

The part that's really bad is that I ordered a 23 cinema display and a the soundsticks with the iSub at the same time as the G5 announcment. I have to use them on my crappy PC untill the Dual G5 Beast is shipped. I also ordered a 30gb iPod at the same time but I finally gave up and sold it it really sucks using musicmatch. The drive is formated for windows so I can't swap with my mac friends. I can't wait to leave the windows world!
The screen sure does rock!:)

You have a PC with an ADC port?

sorry folks, it's the only explanation I can come up with.

No... PC's do not have ADC ports! I use my Apple Display with the ADC to DVI converter that Apple sells for 100 bucks. Apple screen are soooo... nice.

I can personally attest to 3 machines at USC that are Dual G5.
They arrived Today and are sitting in the shipping and receiving secure loading dock area. So SOME machines are out there, at least with those affiliated with universities.

you realize you can reformat it for the mac, right?


my order (placed last friday) still says on or before 10/14.. which is ok, except that new orders (same exact config) say 3-5 weeks... here's hoping it's the "or before" part. hah

what a joke! my dual was just bumped to 23 Sept from 2 Sept... I just love how Apple waits until after it was supposed to ship, then bumps the shipping date.
I really don't get why this fellow would get his now... I ordered 3 hours after WWDC's keynote, through the Apple Dev Connection as a Student Developer, and yet I got bumped... maybe this guy is masquerading as Virginia Tech or something...

Waste of bandwidth? Hasn't the time? Too low a quality? Preparing a later article?

I believe the report, if Mike thinks it's real I'm happy to take his word.

Did you order a standard config or a BTO config?

Standard configs get shipped faster.

BTW, ordering 3 hours after the keynote probably still puts a few thousand systems ahead of you.

I think the High res pics of the single G5 are from a different person. The Dual Pics have just not be posted yet

He meant, that it has to be in windows format for him to manage it with musicmatch, but then it is incompatible with his mac friends, but i think he should have kept it until his mac came, then reformatted.

Yes, the pics were taken by someone else. Even though he only has a single processor G5, the images are stunning and well worth a look.

I just started college and got a job working for the computer department [obviously called something else].

One of the big cheeses has a Dual 2 Ghz G5 sitting on his desk, and he got it / unpacked it yesterday. Supposedly I'm going to be allowed to pet it tomorrow. Yay!

I have a dual 2.0 G5 EDU institutional order placed July 24, was to ship "on or before Oct. 3" and was told this AM it was being built. I noticed online there is a problem with the credit card processing so I will call tomorrow AM to clear that up, but hopefully this will ship tomorrow. I upgraded my shipping to next day, so I should have this by Friday.

This is very sweet as last time Apple announced a new product and I ordered early through EDU store, I learned of retail orders that were placed 2 weeks AFTER my order shipped before mine. So it looks like things have come full circle. :)
