    I ordered an iMac (stats below) on new years day. It was supposed to arrive on the 8th. Now it's not expected to ship until the 9th at the earliest!

    Could this be related to Tuesday's announcement or is it related to the specs?

    2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB
    NVIDIA GEFORCE 7600 GT w/256
    750GB Serial ATA Drive
    SuperDrive 8X (DVDR-DL/CD-RW)

    I would say specs, because the 750 gb hard drive is probably teh least common option for iMacs. Not that its a bad option, but im sure apple sells more 250 and 500's, so that might be causing the delay. Or I could I wrong, it might be because of ilife 07

    This happens all the time, and people are always shouting "update, update!" It's probably just a production delay.

    Delays happens all the time, and when people ask "Does it mean that my <product name> is being updated?!?!" the answer is almost always "No, it's a delay in production".
    However, a delay at this very moment, with consumer-oriented Macworld just days away, it could just as well be a product update of some sort. Maybe an upgraded airport card for improved connectivity with iTV.
    Whatever the reason, you'll have to wait and see like the rest of us.

    The only think I can think of is the 750gb hard drive and iLife 07.

    Looks like it was simply a hardware delay...

    The computer shipped this morning from Shanghai.

    Thanks for the info and the replies replies to my post.

    I wonder....

    Could the lead-in to MWSF drive a slowdown in CTO Mac Sales to the level that production actually slows down? Cut a shift from the production line for a couple weeks?
