Dual-800 G4's Shipping: This Week

I phoned the Apple Store to see if I could hear some hopeful news regarding the shipping status of my dual-800 G4 Quicksilver, ordered the day of the keynote (7/18). Past calls had yeilded nothing more than "5-7 weeks from your order date," but today I was told some pleasant news indeed. It appears that the dual-800's are shipping this week! Another user with a dual-800 on order was given a solid ship date of Wednesday (this week), upon calling the Apple Store.

It seems they're finally about to move...and if what they're telling us is true, Apple will have beaten its 5-7 week shipping estimate by about 1 week. Good news! We'll do what we can to get some benchmarks on-line ASAP.
