New PowerMac G5 Dual 2.0Ghz
I ordered a new PowerMac G5 Dual 2.0Ghz on Friday and I did a "CTO" option upgrading the Graphics Card to the ATI Radeon 9600XT, my question is this. My EST Ship Date is 6/29/04. I am in the computer industry build PC computers for clients, and I know how long it takes to build. Why is it that my Ship Date is over a week away for a swap on the graphics card??? Do they actually build a custom computer instead of taking a "standard" one and just replacing the graphics card?? My order is still open and since the new G5 Dual 2.0Ghz is supposedly using the PowerPC 970 instead of the 970fx what is the hold up? How long did it take everyone else to get their CTO computers? My friend just got a PowerBook CTO and it took a shipped the same day and he upgraded the HD, so in disbelief to 50% of what I've read I say the new Dual 2.0Ghz has the 970fx chip, because there is nothing else that could be holding up my order. Sorry this is was so long.
