Apple Dealing With Shipping Delays For New iMac
Apple has had shipping delays to its iPhone 5 and iPad Mini and now the tech giant may see delays in its new iMac line that comprises of the 27-inch and 21.5 inch models.
According to mobilenapps.com the two devices that were launched earlier this year will see lengthy delays in terms of shipping. Apple has a said that the 21.5-inch iMac will be available within "7-10 days," upon ordering and the higher grade 27-inch model will ship in January if ordered now.
Apple has now worked on the delays to the iPad Mini and the iPhone but the shipping for the iMac is proving problematic.
"Apple is expected to reach its shipment targets for both the iPad mini and 21.5- and 27-inch iMacs during the first quarter of 2013, as parts providers in its supply chain are expected to increase their yields by then, added the sources," reported Digitimes.
The default model for the 21.5-inch is priced at $1299 and packs a 2.7GHz Core i5 chip, 8GB of memory, a GeForce GT 640 graphics chip and a 1 TB hard drive.
The wider 27-inch will have a price tag of $1799 and comes with a 2.9 GHz i5 CPU and according to those in the field will have a higher-end Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M graphics chip.
"Redesigned from the inside out, the new iMac packs high performance technology into an aluminum and glass enclosure that measures just 5 mm thin at its edge and features a reengineered display that reduces reflection by 75 percent,"said Apple in a recent press release.
