New 27-inch iMac orders won't ship until January
Posted 07 December 2012 - 12:35 PM
I ordered my 27" at noon ET the day that they started taking orders. Its delivery was 2-3 weeks and it is scheduled for arrive in Canada Dec 27-Jan 3. Then one article later that day had the shipping date at 3-4 weeks. If they are now saying 3.5 weeks, that is basically where it was at the end of the first day of orders.
In other words they are keeping up with what appears to be a steady 'new' demand on the 27".
I would also expect that they are putting priority for manufacturing towards the 21" which would more likely be the holiday gift model volume king.
So - basically the only story is that they are getting orders and shipping. And if they are shipping high volumes of the 21" then they are having a very good holiday season.
You might want to look into that and do a story that really is news.

Apple told customers the new 27-inch iMac would arrive in December. If you didn't already order one, that's not true for you: You'll need to wait until January. Too many of our readers, that's news.

i used to think that too. But a year later with my MacBook Air, and I'm not missing my dvd drive at all. Instead I use thumb drives for handing over large files, or I backup on USB hard drives.

The new iMac is a desk eater. You have a screen, your drive stacks, your external optical disc in their accompanying cases and with the connecting cables and power cables. Looks pretty much like the PC on the other desk with it's screen and CPU (which houses the extra drives, optical disc etc.)
Apple new mac is not a space saver unless all you are doing is email and web surfing.

Not everyone's living involves producing optical media… Mine certainly doesn't.

Not quite true... I make my living off of my computer and never touch a DVD. Not all livings using computers require burning discs. Just saying...
