    According to the Apple Store, all 27" model iMacs have been delayed by 2 weeks.

    It seems all in-transit replacements are still on their way, however. This only appears to apply to new orders.

    Eh? Still listing 2 weeks as the shipping time. This is not new.

    Maybe they're working out a few of the problems? We can only hope.

    UK store has been showing 2 weeks for the last, well, week at least.

    Apple aren't putting orders on hold, they're just not producing them fast enough to meet demand. Demand has obviously risen (either new orders or lots of replacements...) and hence pushed the delays longer.

    peska was probably pointing out that the fact that the "shipping in 2 weeks" has been the topic of many discussions over the last several days.

    I was having a browse (as you do) in Sheffield Apple Store, some asked if they had the 27's in stock and was told they had a big delivery this morning and had plenty.

    What does that have to do with the topic? It stated ALL 27 inchers. And the Apple stores don't carry the i7 anyway. Also, the i7 is merely a drop in replacement for the i5, the use the exact same socket, are the exact same architecture, and are basically no different aside from hyper threading, and the i7 being only 140 more mhz. i7's take zero extra effort to build over i5's.

    My point is, this is not a hold on orders to fix a problem. This is a simple supply exceeding demand issue. 27" iMacs are continuing to roll off the production line and to stores/customers.

    Plus, stores will only have C2D and i5, not i7 stock, no matter what a sales rep tells you.
