CNET’s Brian Tong previously reported at the end of March that now would would be a bad time to purchase an iMac, as a refresh coming in May would bring no cosemtic changes, but Thunderbolt and Sandy Bridge would flesh out the range of Apple’s refreshed desktops. 9 to 5 Mac reports that the iMac is continually seeing supply restraints for the current generation of iMacs, and that a source revealed new iMacs should be shipping next week as Apple stops shipping to resellers this week.
Due to an unexpected delay, we are unable to ship the following item(s)
by the date that you were originally quoted:
Z0JP, IMAC 27\”/5750/SD
will now ship on or before
May 02, 2011
We’re keeping an eye out for May 3rd and 4th delivery dates, and we expect a MacBook Air refresh to include Sandy Bridge processors in June, with Thunderbolt products to hit the mainstream this summer.
