    Just found this on the web.
    "Apple is blaming LG Display for delays of its über-thin 27 inch iMacs, according to DigiTimes sources.

    The greatest revision to Apple's new iMac is arguably its screens, which are now only 5mm shallow. Not surprisingly, LG is having a troublesome time laminating them and as a result, is sending out fewer numbers for assembly.

    Approximately 100,000 27 inch iMacs are being shipped monthly, in comparison to 300-400,000 21.5 inch iMacs being shipped. Apple is expected to dent these supply shortages by February.

    This is the second time Apple has postponed delivery of its 27 inch iMacs. Ordering an iMac now involves delivery times between three and four weeks. Although making consumers wait for shimmery new products helps build hype, Apple's wait times tend to shrink over time as production improves. "

    Good to know. Wish I could build a time machine to zoom to the end of January. :) ... still shows processing, "Ships: January" :-(

    But isn't DigiTimes notoriously always wrong?

    Hit or miss but this seems legit. This is also pretty well known from early December so not really new news but maybe new news to some. I knew it well before I even placed my order.

    By the time they finally get out on the street, it will be time for a refresh!
