Oh and One more thing... yet again

Apple is getting people together for yet another invitation-only press event next week to announce "Apple’s latest pro innovations". This is only one week after the "One more thing..." event which took place two days ago, where Apple announced new consumer products and services: iMacs, video-capable iPods, and a video download store.

If we don't see new Power Macs (quad G5 that is, with PCIe and DDR2) and PowerBooks, I'll eat my hat. We shall see in a few days, but in the meantime I'm off to look up some hat recipes.

[Update 2005-10-14]

The Apple Store now states the 15" & 17" PowerBooks and all the Power Macs will take 3-5 business days after purchase before they are shipped. Such increases in shipping times for stock configurations of Macs are often a sign of imminent updates.

my dear friend,

the shipping time was 3 weeks ( of course 3 weeks ago) and went down since then.

I'm not sure which model you were talking about, but a couple of things:

1) Many of the shipping times have increased since yesterday. Note that there are often a couple of configurations which have extended shipping times. Now all the Power Macs have extended shipping times, and 3 of the 5 PowerBook configurations have extended shipping times too.

2) If you had a Configure To Order machine, the shipping times increase.
