Supplier tell me G5 in stock tomorrow

post #1 of 84
Thread Starter 
Swear to god, I just got a mail from my supplier saying there quoted date for recieiving G5's is tomorrow!! Only 1.6 and 1.8 for now but Dual 2's in 10 days time.

I mailed back to make sure and he confirmed...and I'm in the UK!

I know the ship dates can slip and are sometimes fiction but given Apple stated August and meant September it's wierd that my supplier has just been told it's changed to tomorrow....

There's also a tidbit about Power Mac G5s shipping on MacNN's front page! Maybe we've all become accustomed to "August" meaning "September" in Motorola parlance, whereas it means "July" in IBM speak (just like 1.4 to 1.8 GHz mean 1.6 to 2.0 GHz). I'm certainly not complaining!

Me either...
The link to macnn is here: G5 Shipments

This would seem to suggest there already shipping in the US!!
Albeit the wrong boxes....
Still a confirmed G5 shipment is good.

I'll post here tomorrow if they do come in, gott persuade my boss to let me get one....

Do you have a basis for that no or is it just a 'Junior Member' comment?

Total Junior Member comment. Guess we're second class citizens around here.

Let me rephrase:

While I would like nothing more than to believe you, every experience I've had with Apple's stated and actual shipping dates prevents me from doing so.

Heh, I like that - I'm going to use it as a sig in DSLR.

I thought Steve said "August", meaning as usual that they would ship one machine to Genentech at 11:59 PM PDT on August 31, and all the others in October...

My G5 dualie has said September 2 since I placed the order.

Fair comment!
I was kinda ragging you anyway...just remember you come across as a more sane/balanced person if you qualify your comments before some freak like me jumps on you and rages
Your qualification justifies your comment totally. Apple does usually lie blatantly about shipping. I'm hoping that a lot of delays were caused in the recent past by Moto's production issues and development speed. IBM seems to be a very different kettle of fish and gives hope for some deliverance of promises.

From what I've been reading it's developers who are receiving the machines.
post #10 of 84
Hopefully this is true (as the reports from the US- via. MacNN suggest it might be). I wonder if the Apple Education (I can get a discount 'cos I work at a University) supply lines are going to fill soon too...

Honestly, I don't remember. There are articles about it this over the place, but I happened to see one that mentioned it was "Select" and "Premiere" Developers who were receiving them. It was just a bit more information that the other sites weren't giving, and it kind of makes sense to me that they want to get the machines in the hands of these developers first.

Macnn have axed the story of shipping mix-ups with G5's....

Maybe it was just a troll in the Apple.com Support forums...

I just checked my G5 order status and it has moved from 09/02/03 to 08/29/03---someone must have reviewed the keynote video and realized that steve said August.
it was the world's fastest computer when I ordered it!

Cool. Some people were talking about the Duals not shipping until later (i.e., after August). I guess if they are moving your estimated ship date up, someone thinks that isn't the case.

I don't know exactly how the shipping status screen is mechanized, but I suspect it is dynamically updated through some computerized inventory control system, in which case we may see all sorts of weird gyrations on a new product such as this.

Yeah, but in my past experience the wierd gyrations always went in the other direction. (Sometimes something will ship early but I've never seen it change on Apple's site until it actually ships.) It seems like I good sign that it isn't this time.

My dual is still 9/02/03....

EDIT: Now it's 8/29/03....

He will have been quoting information from Ingram Micro (1 of 2 of Apple's UK Distributors - these are the guys who supply the box shifters etc).

Their site states:
APPLE POWERMAC G5-1.8G 160GB 512MB SUPERDRIVE 3X PCI-
Manufacturer\tAPPLE
Real Time Price _(GBP)
Manufacturer P/N\tM9031B/A
IM SKU\t479D610
Real time stock \t0
On Order\t125
ETA date\t18/07/2003

However, given that they have been saying they have been getting 30GB iPod's in stock since early May (current date is 23/7/03), changing the date at least four times I would take this with a large Tequila to go with your pinch of salt.

In the analyst meeting Apple said first G5s were going to seeders, software companies and other interested parties. Consumers would be seeing machines in August.

No Airport card?
post #37 of 84
Never had a need for wireless networking.
It looks to me like the aftermarket airport card is the same price and looks similar to the BTO option, but I bet it doesn't have the antenna coax and external antenna for the G5 case installation. I am sure they will find some way to punish aftermarket buyers.

The order status screen has been shut down for about three hours now---must be a pretty serious problem.

Changing the status of all the G5's to "Shipped" takes a while.

When do you guys think I'll be able to walk into an Apple store and pick up a G5/1.8? Maybe on the 15th of August or so?
