Apple now showing 'January' shipping for 27-inch iMac

updated 01:03 pm EST, Fri December 7, 2012

21.5-inch models unaffected

Shipping times for 27-inch iMacs have stretched into January at Apple's US and Canadian online stores. Prior to today, Apple's website listed times between three and four weeks; now, however, it simply displays a vague "January" date. Under the earlier schedule some systems could conceivably have been delivered before the end of 2012.

21.5-inch iMacs, meanwhile, remain unaffected, set to arrive in seven to 10 days. Supplies of 27-inch models have always lagged behind. Orders opened up last Friday with a two- to three-week delay in the US, but reached the three- to four-week mark after less than a day of orders.

    I never really trust those dates. I ordered three 21" and two 27" yesterday, all custom configured. The 21s were showing 7-10 days, but they shipped within 12 hours and should be delivered tomorrow or Monday. No word on the 27's, yet, but I've got my fingers crossed for before xmas.

    Eh? I think your logic's backwards. They're selling like hotcakes.

    I know it's all been covered before, but I just don't see the problem with removing the optical drive. If you want one for some reason, add it on. In my office, we couldn't care less about optical media. I'll keep an external around just in case we have to work with an old school client or legacy files, but otherwise there's just no need. I don't even buy boxed software any more. A 3-4GB full DVD image download takes only a matter of minutes and I can just throw it on the server for easy access from anywhere in the world and a full backup in case of catastrophe. Good riddance.

    For a desktop, this makes no sense... there is no Blu-Ray, and I don't mean movies....
