Apple will officially show off the new Power Mac G5 at launch parties in 20 major Chinese cities next month, but the company unveiled the new systems on Tuesday at the BIRTV (Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition) Expo in Beijing, China. The Beijing Mac User Group was present for the unveiling.
“Apple’s stand at this year’s BIRTV Expo in Beijing, capital of China, is remarkably larger than that of the previous year,” Yan Feng, president of the Beijing Mac User Group, said. “Three massive ads were hung out in front of the exhibition centre, with two in clear sight when you approached the exhibition centre, and one in front of building 8B, where Apple exhibited.”
The official G5 launch will occur between Sept. 2 and Sept. 27. The launch parties will kick off in Beijing, and will proceed to Shanghai, Tianjin and 16 other cities before winding down in Shenzhen. The Beijing user group will cover the release party in Beijing.
