Apple iMac Ship Times Slip Ahead of New Lower-Priced Models at WWDC?

Posted by · 6984 views · Translate
Ship times for the Apple iMac have slipped to 3-5 business days as analysts predict that Apple may introduce a new lower-priced iMac and refresh the all-in-one desktop lineup at WWDC.

AppleInsider noticed the change in ship times earlier today. Both the 21.5-inch model and 27-inch model are showing 3-5 business days, rather than the typical 'within 24 hours' availability. Customized orders are taking even longer. Models with bumped processors are taking 5-7 business days to ship and models with bumped RAM (16GB or 32GB) are taking up to 10 business days to ship.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would launch a lower cost iMac back in October. Kuo notes that the current iMac did not ship as many units as expected and that a lower-cost model could help combat Windows desktops. Kuo expects the new model to boost iMac sales by 10-20% and said it could ship in Q2 or Q3, 2014.

In addition to the lower-cost model, Apple could refresh the whole lineup as we haven't seen an update since September 2013. Notably, just a few weeks ago Apple updated the MacBook Air lineup with faster processors and lower prices.

If Apple has it's ways- there would be one port and they would $ell you dongles for everything you need. The dongles would fail after the some use. You have to keep buying them like it is with everything else now.. like their crappy macbook charges and video dongles. Look who's making money baby???..

It's not a problem you know. You have one nerve that comes up with it's gimmicks because that's the trolls way. You have to keep myth crapping just to act right like the fanboys with their expectations without facing the facts. Look who's reading and learning before making fools bitch???
