Edit: Maybe it is an ADC thing. Mine is an ADC order also.
When I first placed my order I expected it to take a month or more, so slower ground shipping wasn't a big deal. But now that its shipping right away I wish I opted for faster delivery! That said, I'm in CA so FedEx ground won't take too long either.
For reference, my specs are:
2x3GHz, ATI X1900, 2 GB RAM (4x512), 500 GB HD, Dual SuperDrive, AirPort+BlueTooth Wireless, Wireless KB + Mouse.
I was debating buying the RAM elsewhere, but jumping from 2x512 to 4x512 was comparable to Crucial and other vendors so I thought it was worth getting Apple's official heatsinks while we wait for the cards to fall. The next upgrade is probably adding another 4x512 for 4 GB total and full quad-channel goodness, but we'll see how long I can hold out. My G5 has 2.5 GB and it saddens me that my new Mac Pro will have less. *sniff*
As soon as the Merom MacBook Pros are out I'll probably pick one up too, ideally alongside updated cinema displays so I can have 23/24" goodness with built-in iSight and remote.
The big question is, what do I do with my G5 tower?! I can keep my extra SATA drives and pop them in my Mac Pro, but some upgrades like my x800 AGP card are pretty much useless. Anyhow, off to check craigslist and ebay I suppose...
