Xserve G5 delayed; Apple aims to ship this month

updated 08:15 am EST, Mon March 8, 2004

Xserve G5 delayed

Citing higher than expected demand, Apple has confirmed to Macworld UK that . "We're working hard to start shipping the new Xserve systems in March 2004, not by the end of February as originally announced," Apple told the publication. Rumor sites meanwhile have attributed the Xserve delay to cooling issues; Apple has not responded to that claim. New Xserve G5 orders placed at the Apple Store aren't expected to ship until mid-late April.

    Higher demand?

    Higher demand doesn't delay the first shipments. it just takes longer to get through them all.

    8 weeks

    I had to go with a G5 tower with OS X server because my Apple dealer told me that the waiting time for a xserve was 8 weeks.

    Just wondering if the plant capacity in this case is 3 units x day.

    This is frustrating.

    Anti-astroturfing

    Microsoft, and well as a few other companies, have been caught astroturfing in the past. The term refers to an artifical effort to create the impression of "grass-roots" support. Generally, it means hiring people to post positive comments on message boards.

    What is the oppositve of astro-turfing? That is, hiring people to post negative comments about competitors products, on message boards. Because honestly I can think of no other reason why Mac-centric boards would have so many anti-Apple posts.

    Let's call it "asshat-trolling".

    Re: typical

    I wonder if the people that complain about shipment delays are the same people that complain when Apple takes too long to announce a new product?

    re: RIPE

    What is up with the idiots that keep posting this c***?

    Is it some sort of retarded inside joke about Apples also being a fruit or something?

    I mean, wow, you are so witty. What a pathetic and useless life you must have, living in your parent's basement and trolling through Mac websites. Get a girlfriend or something... and if you already have one go pay more attention to her or your best friend will.
