At least yours are close... :-( Mine are 4 or more hours away (McLean VA, Arlington VA, or Durham NC) At least the local best buy has macs, hopefully they will get a G5 in a couple of weeks.

You can get one for $1800 from Apple with free shipping. Just gotta sacrifice the SuperDrive. Man, I want one :)

You'd better not get yourself in trouble....lol!

I configured a system online and it came out to about $4900. That was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but the thing is so sexy, I need it ;-)

Yeah, but ordering from Apple.com there is a 7-10 week wait I've heard. Patience then becomes a virtue haha.
