Wow, those are some amazing numbers. Tho, I don't see how they had access to all 3 units. Also, they mention a dual 1.8ghz, according the Apple's leak, the 1.8ghz was a single.

Does anyone know if the LCD Imac was immediately available to buy at the time it was revealed?

No. At least I remember waiting a month or so for the high end model.

The reason I ask is because I just don't see how the G5 will be immediately available to buy tomorrow since we don't have a more reliable leak(doesn't seem like it at least) of its appearance or other details.

Just doesn't make sense to me in this day and age. You can't keep anything a secret anymore.

I think the LCD Imac should be comprable though. That is why I am curious how much info was known about it and when it was available to buy after its reveal.

Maybe Jobs and Apple use some kind of incentive to make their employees keep it secret? Anyone know?

The only thing that kept me from talking about the flat pannel iMac was my NDA. I love Apple and I personally would not have wanted to do anything to hurt the company, or my future career...

Still at Apple?

How long is the NDA binding?

If said NDA has expired, spill the beans on all the other interesting things you saw that never made it to market.

Yeah, leak info and they fire your ass and then Steve comes over and pisses on your remains. I know people at Apple. Beyond confirming that they still work at Apple, they say NOTHING.

Can you talk about how you learned about it; did you work for apple? How long before the rest of the world did you learn about it? What was your original reaction to it? What does the NDA look like -- what are the restrictions?

All excellent questions. Yes, Jared tell us all.
Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

OK, we all know you know something. NDA or not. Does your NDA explicitly say you can't tell about NDA itself? Does it state you must deny your being under said NDA?

What are you going to say when the G5s ship? "I must be seeing things," might be a good start, then hit yourself on the head and do us all a favour!

I'm sorry, did you say something?

To be fair, my MacRumors transcript has his Jobsness saying "We are delivering today the Worlds Fastest Personal Computer". Maybe the transcript is wrong, but that's what it says. Caught up in his own RDF, I reckon...

He didn't mean deliver in the sense of shipping it to Joe Blow... he meant deliver in the sense of announcing.

You mean "deliver" in the sense of "not delivering"? I see...

Thank you for making that so clear. It was obviously meaning no 10: "to make vague or unspecified promises about delivery at some point in the future". Silly me!

Ouch!
And I was only reading the transcript...
Anyway, I think they look GREAT. Good clean lines. Timeless. Now all we need is new displays, mouse and keyboard to match. Until then I'm sticking with the Cube and ACD. I love Lucite.

Anyone can be cryptic and say a whole lot of nothing and come out seeming like they new something. You think Apple gave Moki's company G5s early.... why, to test their games? What are the minimum requirements of those anyway, G3? OS 8.6?

I think moki came out and said, in a not totally straight forward method that the WHEN was what was not going to happen on this wonderful 23rd. It wasn't that cryptic, though I wish he were wrong in terms of shipping, but you know what, it's an ass kicking machine, and I have my dual 2.0 GHz on order already! Maybe it gets here in August, if not, a few weeks later. Maybe moki was guessing that shipping wouldn't happen right away, maybe he wasn't. His comments were correct, unlike many of the rumors sites.
