Auslander, if it isn't bolted down Apple's going to ship it! 9/30 is the end of their quarter so don't be too shocked if you see yours suddenly appear! Mine is scheduled 10/13 or before and these sudden early shipping posts are music to my ears!

I just wish I'd see some 6800's and/or 30" displays showing up.

Yeah, mine has the 6800 option, so I doubt it will be before 10/08 now. Still, that's just around the corner at this point...

Early ship dates OH Yeah!
FedEx has a delivery time of monday 9/27 by 4:30pm for my G5.
Apple said it would ship on or before tuesday 9/28.
I'm getting mine with an ATI9800 a day before it is supposed to ship!
Can't wait to tear it up G5 style starting monday!
post #287 of 336
I'll be ordering my G5 on Monday.

I called my reseller on Friday and they said that they recently got a huge shipment from Apple that took care of most of the backorders and that I'll probably receive my G5 10-14 days after I order.

That works for me.

You probably saw the 30" and 6800 on the Apple board that Mr. Smith said shipped. This is the ONLY one I have seen and for some reason I think that entire order was imaginary. Ordered on 8/8 and the first one reported shipped? Mine's scheduled for Thursday (9/30). As of yesterday that was still the date.

Harry, this may be a good sign! As of today ( 9/28 ) my 30" display and 6800 card are STILL scheduled to ship this Thursday 9/30. Two days for a FedEx number or new date.

Let us hope!

Well it's got to start sometime! Oct 1 (or thereabouts) would seem a logical time. Good luck!

I've got my fingers crossed for ya!! I hope they can start shipping soon. I'm dying to get mine. I'll be watching for you update on 9/30. My last 2 shipping dates changed on the date of shippment in the afternoon. If they ship yours maybe the flood gates will open and I'll get mine before the 10/22 date I show now.

I have a good feeling about this. With all the G5's shipped with the 6800's and 30" display's "to come later" and at $4,000.00 a pop Apple could ship one heck of a lot of money out the door and have a lot of completed sales ($millions I'm guessing) before the end of their business quarter 9/30. I also have good reason to believe Apple has and is sitting on tons of 30" displays waiting for the 6800's. Getting the displays shipped will also lower their inventory numbers for the quarter.

Based on that I believe if Apple can ship these they sure as heck will! Right now I am pleased my vendor ordered these seperately from my G5 2.5! If I get a FedEx number Thursday I will be even happier!

When they ship the box and card/display separately is there any video card installed to take the place of the 6800?

The flood gates is what I'm thinking too Harry! Once the kink is out of the 6800's I think it will pour them!

In my case my vendor ordered the G5 seperately so it will come with the standard ATI card. They will install the 6800 and keep the ATI which is fine with me. FYI - My vendor is up grading my 1 gig of RAM to 2 - 1 gig modules. They keep the 2 - 512's it was ordered with. I get 2 gig of RAM with the ability to go to 8 for about $350.00 -v- $1,000.00.

There are a lot of people like me that just want to see Apple is shipping 6800's. Hopefully between now and Thursday there will be a lot of people getting email that will bring great joy!

Auslander, maybe, just maybe there will be a ton of people pleasantly surprised on or about 9/30, not just me! Maybe, just maybe with all the "ship dates" Apple has given I wouldn't at all be surprised to find they just tell you it shipped instead of going back and changing all the dates. It could also be that for whatever reason they "hoped" they would ship mine by 9/30 when they finally got around to scheduling my order to a date. In all of this chaos Auslander, if they do in fact ship my order you can bet your's and many others are on the way! At the worst if they ship mine YOU and many others will have confidence you'll have yours in a couple of days instead of wondering if Apple will ever ship and to me that's GREAT news.

On the other hand we may both be wondering when this Friday!

post #304 of 336
I didnt't want to waite for months to get my dual 2.5 G5 so I called around and found a handfull of them at the local apple stores in the So Cal area. Apple product and tech support freaked out when I called for info on when these stores would get the INVIDIA graphics cards in, they stated that they had no record of any apple stores selling the 2.5 G's. Basically you get a 160Gb hard drive, the stock video card, and 512 mb of ram (upgradable at the store along with blue tooth and airport). I purchased my 23" HD display and tower on Aug 18 after searching a day for them. The stores only get a few and sell out in under an hour. The one in New Port Beach had 10 and I had to hold one of them till that afternoon. They said the other 9 were gone in 35 minutes....

I ordered 2.5 with 2G and 2X250G HD, 23" with 6800, 2 months ago in Sydney via a apple reseller Next Byte. They could not give me delivery dates (deposit A$1500) so I complain to Apple Australia and they did track it down and says, delay is due to 6800. Still waiting....

As of 8:00 PM EDT the shipping date has not changed and there is still no notice of shipping. I was advised of 2 things. 1. Apple's business quarter ended last Friday, 9/24. My theory that they would push as much out by the 30th was wrong. That ended last Friday not today. 2. It may have shipped. I have been advised that because things are back to "normal" with no "end of the quarter push" to get things out that Apple will not up date their information in their system maybe until midnight California time, 3:00 AM EDT, my time. As far as calling them I ordered through a reseller so I have to call the reseller. He has access to the Apple system and can see if something shipped before notice is even sent. He called me from home to give me this 8:00 PM up date.

His opinion, it may have shipped. May have. Tonight when Apple does up date their system either the date will change or the order will have been shipped today. Nothing, in his experience, indicates which it will be at this time.

I should know one way or the other early tomorrow morning and I will make a post here as soon as I know.

Hello,
I ordered a G5 2.5 with the nVidia 6800 on 8/30. My ship date was 10/5. Apple offered me an option to exchange my nVidia for a 9600 XT and then ship me the 6800 later. I went ahead and did this becasue I believe, and sorry if this is not what everyone is hoping for, but that the nVidia 6800 isn't even ready to be shipped at all. My computer now comes in 2 weeks or less for sure and I can stop hanging at the edge of my chair reading every post on the planet looking for a G5 that shipped with a 6800 in it. Let me know your thoughts.

Regards,
CGP

If that works for you that great! In my case the 6800, many of us are waiting for, is necessary for the 30" display that goes with my G5 2.5. No 6800 no display.

Well, I have always been convinced that once the problem with the 6800's is fixed they will pour to customers. I have little confidence in any dates from Apple at this point. The ONLY thing I'll be impressed with is when I see them in fact shipping!

Could be because the people that have them aren't spending time here wondering when they are coming.

Douglas: Sorry to see you are in the same boat as the rest of us. Join the club.

Did they quote you a shipping date for your 2.5?

Yup, on or before 10/13 but if I recall the notice started with:

Dear Customer,

Once upon a time ........

You know, I just priced a 23" and a second 20". The pair would be a few hundred less and bull crap free. I want the 30" and the few hundred bucks isn't the base of any decision but, but if I don't actually see some people posting they have gotten the 6800's in the next week or so I might get disgusted with all the chaos enough to cancel the 30" or maybe the entire damn order until Apple get's their crap together. I really do not want 2 displays but 3 months without any confidence it will even come then ........
