My order has been placed. 😎
According to the information posted in the Apple Store and on my e-mail confirmation:
- the 30″ display ships “within 24 hours”
- the graphics card for the 30″ display ships in “2-3 weeks”
- the PowerMac ships in “3-4 weeks”

I thought the new PowerMacs came with the card for the 30″ display? Maybe I just read that wrong.
You may be right – the PowerMac page seems to indicate the built-in card will work.
Hello Alex. Did you go with the quad 2.5 G5? …. I’m completely jealous!!!
Alex, that’s one of the news… Powerbooks, Powermacs… all support 30″ out of the box.
Yep, got the quad. My last desktop purchase was the then-top-of-the-line dual G4 500mhz and the 22″ Cinema Display, so I guess it’s safe to say I splurge on a desktop set-up every 5-6 years. 🙂
I had the same experience… beautiful new 23″ display waiting on my desk for something to plug it in to!!
Great machine! Congrats 🙂
I had to cancel my order and place a new one to get things squared away.
No more extra video card
Added the Bluetooth/Wireless card I’d forgotten the first time
Didn’t get the extra RAM (will order from OWC instead)
Better a few da…
Excellent, looking foward to hearing your impressions!
