“Stocks of the Power Mac G5 at the Apple Store online are now listing 7-10 day waits, MacBidouille reports. This is the usual signal from Apple that we’re due for a new model,” Remy Davison reports for Insanely Great Mac. “MacBidouille, in fact, originally reported this about a week ago, stating that stocks of the G5s were almost exhausted. However, the US Apple Store was still listing 1-2 day wait last week. At time of writing, the US Store says 7-10 days. Other Apple online stores worldwide are reporting similar wait times.”
Davison reports, “The word around the traps is that the base model might be 2GHz (single processor), with a 2.5 or 2.6GHz DP in there somewhere. DP 3GHz is for the more optimistic tipsters. Given that the availability of high-end processors is likely to be constrained, one wonders whether Apple would go with DPs – at least to begin with.”
