The preauthorization charge on my credit card that was there for months then went away after the bumped ship dates is back, but no actual charge yet. Don't know how significant that is...

No word on shipping yet.

I just order mine finally and they said they believe it will ship on the 19th of October. I guess that is not too bad. The two 23" Apple LCD's will be here on Saturday. Can't Wait.

I am pleased to write that this post is my first on my new standard configuration Dual G5. It arrived yesterday. I ordered the first day, a standard conf. since I was confident that would arrive sooner than a custom build.

It is sweet. Also Apple sent it second day even though I ordered ground and never pressured them about the addition 2 week delay.

Oh yea, I did order under the Federal Employee program if that makes a difference.

Of all the digital stuff I have in my household I haven't yet added a digital camera, so I can't help out with pictures. I haven't openned the machine yet, but look forward to it this afternoon when the extra RAM I ordered should show up (1 Gig from Crucial - they are giving free shipping right now)

If the call for pictures is just to verify my statements, all I can say to all those waiting as I was, one day your email notification will be in your mail. And I would expect it will be very soon, since the Fed program would seem to hold no priority (about a 10% discount) like students and edu. might.

I worked for years programming on Windows environment, and have just dabbled with my dear Mac's (left over from college days). I am in the process of moving all my new work onto the G5 and really look forward to NOT using my PC except for a few games, and really getting into OS X.

For those in the first batch (those who had a 8/29 date at some point) who haven't gotten a shipping notice yet, did you CTO a 250GB drive or more than 1GB of RAM? It's rumored that the bigger drives and 1GB RAM modules are causing delays.

Nope, mine's a standard config, BUT I ordered on July 10, which puts me about 3/4 of the way back in the first group of orders (I had an 8/29 date, now 9/22).

It's probably a combination of what CTO (if any) changes you made, and what your order date was.

My CTO order just shipped last night, Thursday 9/18. I ordered it in July and its ETA was bumped all the way to October. Luckily, it looks like I may be receiving the machine on Monday. Woohoo!

I just got an email from the apple store:

From: applestore.de@euro.apple.com

Sehr geehrte Kundin, sehr geehrter Kunde,
mit diesem Schreiben erhalten Sie die Versandbest├Ątigung zu Ihrer Apple Store Bestellung.

Bestelldatum: 28-08-2003

Produktreihe Teilenummer Beschreibung Menge Kosten
000010 M9032D/A G5DP2.0/512MB400/160/SD/R9600/PCI-X-DEU 1 EA
000020 M8405ZM/A APPLE DVD-R MEDIA 5 PACK-ZML 1 EA
---

In english: it shipped today !!!

I originally ordered on 21 August, but Apple Loan only completed on the 28th, so that was then stated as the order date.

I have never gotten any estimated shipping date, only: "5 to 7 weeks".
It seems the order status in europe is quite different from the one in the US.

And I ordered a stock config Dual 2.0 GHz G5, because I thought changing anything would just make the shipping slower.

No problem. I placed my order on July 15, in case you're interested.

I'd have to say you're correct about that.
Seems that a lot of people that ordered within the first few days still haven't received any notice of shipment.
So consider yourself lucky!
Enjoy your new machine.

Well, our Notts Apple retail guy said mid Oct' for the 2nd wave of 'stock' machines. No dual 2 gigger until then. And that's the shops left with a crummy 1.6 model!

Waaah! I wanted to play with the dual 2 gig G5.

Sigh.

Patience.

My dual G5 shipped today, 9/20. I ordered on 6/26 and made several changes to the order since then, mostly deleting extra memory, extra disks, and extra interfaces, but kept the Radeon 9800 and Airport.
