My new G5 was scheduled to ship tomorrow, July 30th, and I've been waiting with bated breath. In classic Apple fashion, I just received this email:

To Our Valued Apple Customer:

Thank you for ordering the new Dual 2.5GHz Power Mac G5!

The demand for this item has been incredible. We are 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 on or before August 20th.

Please rest assured that we fulfill all orders in the order they are received. If we do not hear from you prior to shipment, we will assume the revised date is acceptable, and will ship your order. We will notify you if there are any changes to the revised ship date.

To check the status of your order, visit . When your Power Mac ships, you will receive a Shipment Notification via email explaining how you may track the package.

We appreciate your patience and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this delay has caused you. Thank you for your interest in Apple products!
