21.5-Inch iMac Shipping Times Slip To 7-10 Business Days

The new iMac went on sale in the Apple Store yesterday morning, and initial demand has already caused shipping estimates to slip from 1-3 to 7-10 business days. The base 21.5-inch model is now shipping in 7-10 days, while the faster model still ships in 1-3 days. The 27-inch iMac won’t be delivered for 3-4 weeks, meaning many orders probably won’t arrive in time for Christmas.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has noted that new iMac supplies will be constrained for awhile due to the complicated manufacturing process overseas.
