You guys don't know how lucky you are. I ordered mine (ADC through the Apple Store) on February 6th. It was prepaid with a personal cheque - Apple has had my money for more than 6 weeks and I still don't have an OoB date! I called them last Friday and the closest they can say is "around May 15th". I work at the computer science dept. in the largest university in my country and have been an ADC member since 1987!
The same happened to me for a while. I tracked it down to a faulty FireWire cable. OS X crashed almost daily. After I replaced the FireWire cable with a new one I have had no more crashes.MacOS X is sensitive to problems with external units and with drivers. Buggy drivers and faulty hardware can give Kernel Panics.So no more Kernel Panics here for the last half year.

They talk about February-March time frame (I think) for the 970 arrival. "I følge IBM vil PPC 970 "være tilgjengelig i andre halvdel av 2002".

Some of us live i countries where non-comercial radio is available. Where I live we have 3 public radiostations without comercials. All geared towards different audiences - 1 for general public, 1 for culture...

It's not even a rumor. Didn't anybody see the link on the April 1. availability? Terje
If this is all true, what can Apple do to keep its existing line attractive? For consumers their existing computers are good enough, but they are a bit pricey. I don't belong to the group that thinks that Macs are slow. I have a 17" iMac and a 667 TiBook and they are both more than fast enough for my uses (which is more or less typical consumer uses). I don't play a lot of games, but for the ones I play these machines are fast enough (not for hard-core gamers though). So...
AMD rumors are afoot again (MacBidouille). Now I don't for a second think that Apple will abandon PPC and go x86 (neither 32 nor 64 bit version). There are too many mines in the water that way. On top of that Jobs has said that they are not abandoning PPC and that PPC has a great future. As a CEO of a large company ha cannot say this and then change just a couple of months later. But: There were rumors of G5 (64 bit) processors from Motorola last spring and rumors said...
[quote]Originally posted by Amorph: Just out of idle curiosity, how does he - or anyone - know they're running OS X/x86 on an Athlon if the cases are welded shut? The About this Mac... dialog? If they're guessing because the machines have some serious go-fast in them, that could mean something else.
SO they tell somebody that they have AMD-chips in them and welds the cases shut to hide the innards from them. Maybe they AMD-story is a...
So they test a dual 1,25 GHz G4 with an app that does not use both processors (at least not well) and that does not use AltiVec. This effectively reduces the dual 1,25 GHz G4 to a single 1,25 GHz G3 system. And they find that a 3 GHz P4 system is almost twice as fast. Why am I not surprised? I'm more surprised that the difference wasn't bigger. They are not testing which system is best for video, they are testing which system runs AE better. At this moment that is a...
First they must deliver the existing models. In Norway the delivery date for the 17" iMac is around Oct. 6th. They cannot introduce new models before they can ship the old ones. Terje
