    very disapointed by apple
    hi there


    well, first of all, i've to tell you a little story.

    okey, since i've heard of the G5 (was about sept. 03), i wanted to buy one.
    okey, i saved the money.

    at may 04, i had enought (bout 5000CHF, the best g5 is 4500CHF), and was happy.

    than, i knew that in the next months, a new serie of the G5 would come out, and it would be stupid to buy one now.

    okey, i waited.

    july 04, the new g5 were introduced.

    just somedays later, i ordered one by a mac-saler (is this the right word?), because i work there as PHPprogrammer.

    i ordred that G5 (with the dual 2.5) on july 29 04

    but what happen??
    sorry apple has deliverie problems.

    but that sucks.
    realy.

    now, the mac dealer told me, that it still goes some weeks (3-4).

    but i realy hate it.


    why??

    'cause if i pay 4600CHF i want that machine.
    if i have to wait 3month (!!!!!!!) that G5 is the money not worth.

    i mean, 4600 just when they introduced it, okey.
    but if i have to wait and wait and wait and wait...

    i'm realy not willing in paying 4600 CHF for a 3month old mac.


    this realy sucks.


    c'mon apple
    and if you have problem with that liquid cooling.
    why do you tell it 3 month ago??
    you could at least everyone who ordered it befor the dalays were told, give the mac for 4300CHF.

    this would be service.
    not a good service, but you would at least try to say sorry.

    but so.

    no no no.
    this is the badest service since long for me.

    not even think of saying "sorry".

    nono, not YOU GUY have to say sorry, but APPLE.

    i mean.

    they always wants user to switch.
    but what are they doing?? nothing. nichts. nada. niente.


    if they at least would give a little press conference where they say sorry.

    seems like apple dont care about their customers.

    i mean, if i would just ordered a "normal" G4, and they have problems, okey.

    but the G5 dual 2.5 is THE BEST.

    if somebody wants this baby you have to give it to him.

    i mean, you want the best mac. and this contains also a good service.

    ok, man, stop spazzing out. i think the problem is that you just didn't research it well enough when you bought it. apple clearly announced that the new powermacs would be available in september. they were simply introducing them back in july. they actually said that they wouldn't be shipping them until later. so it is not their problem that you misunderstood the announcement.

    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    Apple WANTS to sell you a computer. Apple doesn't get any money until you get your computer. Believe me, Apple wants your money. Apple is not doing this just to **** you off.

    Apple has problems putting together the newest G5s. It's a serious problem for Apple, because it can't sell computers if it doesn't have them. For Apple's customers, it's bad, but if you need a computer now, you can always buy one from Dell or IBM or somebody else. And frankly, if you do, I don't blame you.

    I agree. You should done your homework before you handed it in!(I know...strange analogy :rolleyes: )

    I bought a Dual 2 on June 13th...and waited about 1.5 months for it to get here...But...After researching that issue I found that it wasn't Apple's fault. IBM wasn't getting the G5 processors to Apple quick enough...

    Ooh well..I have my G5 now...and I can very quickly and honestly say...IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT~!....Seriously....My Mac is like a dream :p

    Using a Mac is like being on Vacation....

    Oooooh so peaceful!

    The Apple Store has a shipping time of 3-5 weeks for the G5s Dual 2.5 - you'll just have to wait, it'll be worth it!

    actually i did.

    i asked several apple dealer, even apple switzerland.
    they told me all, that the new g5 are availible in the "ends of july".
    so i ordered one.

    two weeks later i've again asked apple weitzerland. "there are problems with the cooling system, they should arrive in some weeks"

    Well apple switzerland obviously didn't know what they were talking about.

    It happens all the time with apple in europe, the people on the phone haven't a clue and apple treats europe like an afterthought.

    Oh yeah, they want macs too, well lets set up a second rate sales & support network and leave it at that..

    Specs:
    Dual 2.2GHz powered by AMD Opteron - *Sends G5 & 8Gb Ram to scrap heap* Yeah! finally switched BACK!
    longest i waited for a new mac was 2 weeks. but i've not had a single problem with it since. guess the wait is worth it, if you really want and need one.

    Apple usually announces products, which you can preorder, but it doesn't ship them until later. It's always the way it is. Please don't spazz out, as the others said.

    Have you finally gotten your G5? If you have, you'll probably delete your first post altogether once you realize how much better the G5 is than you.

    Good luck.
