I'm beginning to feel like a little kid just before Christmas. I've already received my G5 RAM modules from crucial.com, and I'll pick up an APC or Tripp Lite power management device next week hopefully. Bring on the G5's!!

Forty-four going on four. Fun stuff.

Apple ships single processor Power Mac G5s
August 18 - 08:45 EDT   Apple today announced that it has begun shipping the 1.6 GHz (US$1,999) and 1.8 GHz ($2,399) Power Mac G5 models. Apple said the dual 2.0 GHz Power Mac G5 will ship late this month, as planned. Apple also announced that it has received orders for over 100,000 G5s since its introduction on June 23. "The Power Mac G5 is a big hit with customers and developers," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "The two single processor Power Mac G5 models are available now, so we wanted to get those into customers hands as soon as possible, and we're right on track to deliver the dual 2.0 GHz Power Mac G5 later this month."

I ordered a Duel G5 2 gigs with 3.5 gigs of ram and have put in the new 9800/128 bit radion card.

But I will have to wait till mid september to get my machine.
I placed the order about a month ago.

Deadline Mike

The New York Times and other sources claim that G5s will be in stores today (Monday Aug 18)!

(Actually, that's technically still "tomorrow" for those of us on the Wet Coast, but "today" for those of you in the Center of the Universe® aka Central Canada.:->)


Cheers :-> Bill

The fact that the PowerMac G5 has external Bluetooth and Airport EXTREME! antennas isn't all that surprising. I'd imagine the all-aluminum case acts like a Faraday cage; without the external antennas I'd imagine the range of both Bluetooth and Airport EXTREME! would be severely limited.
