Are they waiting for supplies to get ramped up first?Dont tell me they wont advertise it...

Why get the general public excited about a new computer and have them go to there local Apple Store to be told that they have to wait a month? "Oh, ok... I guess I'll buy that Dell that my sister's boyfriend said was way better than those fisher-price multi-colored Mac things." OK, worst case scenario, I know. But I do think it's because they want people to be able to see the commercial and go pick one up.

Reply 7 of 8 eugene Posts: 8,254member September 7, 2004 2:15AM I forgot the G5 ad. That's really not particularly surprising either. I remember the G4 tanks ad because it was somewhat original and actually advertising an idiosyncratic characteristic of the hardware, that it was classified by the government as a supercomputer.The G5 on the other hand is so cliche it hurts.

(The one with the guy who's been blown out of his house by the G5) When the ad came out, I remember seeing it all over the place. Lots o' play on MTV and the like.I bet a new iMac ad ("From the creators of iPod... Where'd the computer go?") will come out once the machines are shipping in quantity. Wherever you see iPod adds now you'll see iMac adds. Sign In or Register to comment.
