2-3 Week Lead Time on PM 2.7GHz. Why?

So, I went to order a 2.7Ghz Power Mac today and noticed that the estimated ship time is 2-3 weeks, while the 2.3 and 2.0 ship "same day".

So now, being the nervous sort, I'm wondering whether this could possibly be evidence that Apple is cleaning out the channel in advance of something new being announced, or is this a more typical occurrence and just indicative of unusually high demand for the 2.7?

Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks.

It could be something as simple as they don't have any 2.7 GHz processors in stock. I know, "How can a company as big as Apple run out of a part?" Even large companies make bad estimates sometimes.

On the other-hand, it could mean an update. I'd put my money on low inventory though.

I'd bet on IBM having problems delivering the part. :p

The Top of the Line isn't a huge seller either, along with being a scare part from IBM, so if they have a sudden run on them (or huge order) they will suddenly show a large delay.

We all know that IBM has problems with stock. So my guess its that. Macbidouille even has a theory that it might be IBM trying to get back at Apple cos of the Intel deal thang. But i still stick with stock issues....Atleast we wont have this problem with intel...i hope. :rolleyes:
