FRUITY PURVEYOR of cracked Imacs, Apple has decided not to ship any more of the machines for a couple of weeks.
On its webgroup, Jobs' Mob said sorry to customers amid reports of shipping delays affecting its recently introduced Imac computers.
Apple implies that the delay of at least two weeks is because the Imac has been a huge hit and it is working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.
However it did not actually say that too many orders was the reason for the delay. AppleInsider said that the real reason is that there are display problems with the expensive machines.
The Imac has been plagued with display problems and cracked screens. A support thread on Apple's website has 81 pages of comments and complaints from users with various Imac display problems.
Currently, Apple's online store lists shipping times of two weeks for both 27-inch Imac models. The two 21-inch Imac models are supposed to ship within 24 hours.
Some retailers are starting to run out of stock. Of course if there is a glitch in a production run then chances are that some of the stock that is available might be broken, too.
Apple has been replacing machines that have cracked screens, but has been getting a little difficult about fixing those with minor display problems like broken pixels. µ
