" This report is wrong.
I don't know what's up with my French rumor-brethren, but I just exchanged emails wiht my factory rep at the Taiwan plant where the 970 Power Macs really are being manufactured, and there are **not** any finished products at this time. All I can get is a verification that "at least one model is starting into production soon."
I don't know about MacBidioulle, but my guy actually works at the plant, and this info, while not as flamboyant as the French report, is actually accurate.
Again: There are no finished/packed Power Mac 970's in existence at this time. Period."
Okay. So the 'quoter' aint working again. Fine. I can live with that
Macwhispers hasn't posted this on his web-site (if this is the same guy...) However, he felt the need to quell the Dooby rumours.
Hmmm. I think it must be a close thing. Even if they aint in boxes...I think a WWDC debut would make sense. If they ship early August following said announcement or after a New York annoucement...then okay.
It wasn't that long ago some pessimists were predicting Jan' 2004 for any 970 Tower. 4 weeks or 3 months. I'd settle for either but the sooner the better! (Just to ram it down those Wintel mhz boasters...yeah...and stick it to all those G4 whiners too...)
