While Apple’s new Power Mac G4 systems are “immediately available,” according to the press release, sources with independent dealers and CompUSA tell MacMinute they won’t be getting product until mid-February, as national distributor Ingram Micro is telling dealers they don’t expect new systems until February 12. At the same time, calls to five East Coast Apple Stores reveal a “reasonable number” of new G4 systems will be available at their stores today. “We’ll have enough to handle demand today,” a representative at the Buffalo, NY Apple store said. Apple’s online store is currently noting a one-to-three day estimated ship time for the new systems. Meanwhile, a check of independent dealers and Apple stores reveals that orders for the high-end iMac, which Apple announced had begun shipping today, have yet to arrive, but are expected by the end of the week. “I can’t tell you exactly when, but I feel confident we’ll have a limited number of units by Friday,” a salesman at the Tyson’s Corner, VA Apple store said. Independent dealers are also reporting they expect to receive a small number of units on Thursday from national distributor Ingram Micro. “It’s going to be a trickle, but Ingram’s expects to have us some within three days,” a Pennsylvania-based dealer said.
