    I'm sure apple needs to play catchup and one of the biggest problems has to be the 6800. The later your projected shipdate the shorter (if any) your delay.

    Thats my educated guess from watching these situations like a hawk for 5 yrs.... nothing more, nothing less.

    OK so Apple sent the delay notices to all of us in error, great. Now we hear some are bing shipped.



    IF ANYONE HERE HAS ORDERED THE 6800 AND HAS RECEIVED THEIR SHIPPING NOTICE PLEASE TELL US NOW.

    Just received this from someone at the ADC hardware store:



    "Hi:



    The demand for this item has exceeded our expectations. We will be shipping

    them as quickly as possible, but cannot meet the ship date we previously

    estimated for you. We now expect to ship your Power Mac in ?4-6 weeks?. We

    appreciate your patience and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this

    delay has caused you."

She took my name and telelphone number and is going to call back as soon as things are straightened out.



    I wouldn't wait by the phone.



    I spoke to her today too, and she said, and I quote " The info you see on the web is exactly what I see here". She told me to check every few days (every few minutes in my case - haha) and the update (if any) would happen once the backlog of earlier orders were cleared out. On a positive note, she was very nice on the phone, which under the circumstances I appreciated. I wouldn't have been surprised if she was exhausted by now.

    That email I just got was actually from her. It looks like she decided to email rather than call.

    This is great, my reseller is looking at Aug 6 delivery so pop in some memory,pop in a tv tuner card another printer(why not) and off to me. iam getting excited. if this goes well i should get it by the 10th or 11th. From reviews i have read the 9600xt should be able to handle anything that comes the mac way for a year or two. liquid cooling & low noise operation two 2.5 G5s. ill get a 6800 or 6900 later. this thing is going to be awesome. im also getting a 17" Samsung 172x thats silver and has almost the same styling.12ms response time. i'd post a picture but when i hit image it asks for a web address. any easy way to insert jpgs to your posts here? anyways congrats to everyone that has one coming. almost here.

    Please, look into the Samsung 710t It is real 24bit color (unlike 18bit on the 172x), still has 12ms, PLUS it is cheaper

    So, have any 2.5s actually shipped or was the AI report just wishful thinking?

    I know my friend ordered a dual 2.5 2 days after they were announced through ADC store. His shipdate is 8/20/04. So you have to be pretty special to have got one if they did ship.



    At first his ship date was 9/13... but they changed it recently. He called the main girl at ADC and she told him 8/20... I guess she was kind of pissed because everyone keeps calling and she has to say the same thing "I know as much as you do".

    As far as I know, no 2.5 G5s have actually been shipped. Some customers(me included) have received FedEx tracking #s which show that their packages have been sitting on the FedEX ramp in China for the last 3 days, which somehow does not seem right.

    It looks like my dual 2.5 has finally left Shenzhen China after a long visit there. (July 30-Aug3)

    As of today, it's in Alaska.

    The expected FedEx arrival date is August 3rd. OOPS!...at least I'm happy it's finally out of China.

    Since we are a couple of days into August has anyone had an update on their shipping status? Are they any closer to the states than at the begining of the week?



    I talked to my reseller and he said it shipped but didn't know where it was. So it makes me wonder if it even shipped yet. I want my computer!!!!!

    So how is it running? I think we need some details up in here. Is it silent? Do the fans get loud when doing complex stuff? We need details!!

    it makes the same noise as a 2.0 or a 1.8. there's really no difference. i got an email today as well telling me my shipping date slipped until 9/13. DONT LISTEN TO WHAT THEY'RE TELLING YOU. their system has gotta be so screwed up. i'm sure there's some going out the door as you read this.

    What is your config and when did you order? I'm sure I'll be waiting on mine w/ the 6800 for a few more weeks
