Went to the local CompUSA- the mac guy said,

"their truck didn't come in today, but they'll have a demo unit tomorrow"

So does your local mac dealer have a G5 or not?

Apple shipped them to stores on Sunday, and they should arrive in most stores mid-week.

The Houston Galleria Apple store had none yet as of this afternoon.

I doubt the Comp USA across the street has any yet either. That store is staffed by an Apple person.

I am guessing and hoping by Wednesday.

So who voted Yes An Apple Store and then didn't post where? I phoned both Palo Alto and Santa Clara CA Apple Stores both near Cupertino and both deny they have any nor know when they will have them.

I'm assuming if the SoHo Manhattan Store doesn't have one no Apple Store does.

It's a chain of Mac (and art supply) stores in Montreal and Ottawa. Since there are no Apple Stores up here in Canada, this store is the next best thing in these two cities.

I called the willow bend Apple store in my area and they said "No we don't have them now we expect them anytime now"

That was the word from my neck of the woods.

According to the Apple Store in Oakbrook, Illinois, they expect some demo units tomorrow, Thursday. No idea of time but was fairly confident.
post #21 of 154
No, my local "mac" dealer, rather dark-side-ish if you wan't my advice, won't probably get it until we're at the second, or third generation of G5s. I wish that we had a B.Mac store in Qu├ębec city.

Apple store in Chicago on Michigan avenue has them. But can't go see them yet :-( It ruined my day. Tomorrow...tomorrow will be better.

my local Apple Store [ Northridge, CA ] keeps saying end of month and is starting to really pi** me off....

i hope they are just saying that to throw the CROWD off!!

i want to see one in person, fondle [i mean touch] it, see some benchmarks for the 1.6 and 1.8, then i will probably wait till Panther is default OS and get one then...

hopefully that should be in a month or two so i can save some money.... i just blew what i had on my new Scion xB!

Pretty standard practice for campus computer stores. Most will only sell hardware to their own students. Although I have seen them make an exception before, this exception still was for another university's student with a valid ID.

What I was saying is WHY do they get to buy a machine NOW while I have to wait since June 30 to get mine.

Apple needs to take care of their online customers first if anything. Not some Stanford Yuppie.

...in 'limited quantities'.

And they only have 1.6 models. The guy at the store said that the 1.8 models would be arriving about a week later, and that would be the 25th or so. There's some kind of service that the guy showed me where you can 'reserve' a model at the physical store. I do not know how to get to that site, but basically it asks you to provide your email/phone and the model you're intrested in.

ANYTHING would be better than Chump USA. They've had the same damaged (I mean badly!-- The screen has practically been bent off the hinge) TiBook on display for over a year. Took 'em six months to put a 12 in. AI book on the floor-- still no 17...

I'm thinking Lemonade stand sounds quite superior...

User your brain, dude. It's not special treatment. They aren't getting a special allotment because they're 'Stanford yuppies'

It just means that university stores sell to a smaller customer base and thus have fewer backorders to fill. I did the exact same thing at The Scholar's Workstation my freshman year at Cal. I walked into the store on August 17, 1998 and walked out with a brand new iMac without so much as preordering or calling ahead. The machine had been released for two days already and they still had a few left. I guess that makes Cal students yuppies too.

EDIT: Also note Stanford has <7000 undergraduates and doesn't begin its Fall quarter until September 30. There's nobody there right now.
