Apple’s new 21.5-inch iMac appears to be in fairly strong demand. Over the weekend, ship times from Apple for both 21.5-inch models have slipped fron 1-3 business days down to 7-10 business days for new orders. This follows a similar increase in ship times for 27-inch models.
Despite increased ship times in the Apple Online Store and MacMall.com, which also lists 7-10 day ship times, Amazon.com still has 21.5-inch models in stock for delivery within two days – by December 5th. If you want one of these before Christmas, your best bet is to pick one up from an Apple Store, or get your online order in as soon as possible before ship times increase again.
