Apple has pushed back the shipping time for all 27-inch iMacs to two weeks. The company already delayed them by five to seven days earlier. This delay is believed to have something to do with a quality measure involving cracked screens on delivery and also systems that experience periodic flickering or lose their video signal completely.
This is not good news for Apple since it will delay many orders past Christmas. This means that it will disappoint buyers and could also affect Apple’s quarterly results, which were given a boost by new iMac revisions. So don’t expect your new 27-inch iMac under the tree this year.
