Not in the US...yet...although any BTO brings shipping times from same day to 7-10 days.
lol, yeah. They don't...they might wait just a smidge to see if the batch they are shipped for the actual production models are working right, but for all intents and purposes the PowerBook G5 has been in the works for years, and the design is probably finished.
Interesting analysis Blackcat. I tend to agree with you. Sounds like a plan.
Anyone care to tackle my question?
I love how some like to arbitrarily throw around dates. Way too liberal. A speed bump by January? That's way too long a gap for just a speed bump, esp. when these products have already been bumped to death. Think of how stupid it sounds when you say a speed bump by January. 14 months and then just a "speed bump." Nuts!
It probably signals that the PowerBook G5 is in fact a finished product. I bet this presentation and information was set for release on that date before WWDC, with IBM's knowledge of the PowerBook G5's timetable and that it would have been announced by then.
Apple probably knew at least a year or more ago the situation with the chips IBM recently announced.
You're probably spot on. I think everyone recalls that the new PowerBook models showed up in the G5 plist files last summer with the 10.3.5 update, along with the new iMac, which turned out to be the iMac G5.
Who knows. Apple. I think it's a fait accompli that Apple's portable lineup is very stale. PowerBooks: Weak update on January 31, 2005. iBook: Last updated October 19, 2004. I cannot imagine Apple letting the iBook stagnate almost a year without an update, but then again, they let it happen to the iMac flat-panel G4.
But what if the Intel-based Macs run at such better performance with native apps that the slowest of the Rosetta emulated apps run better on Intel than they do on native PowerPC hardware?
