    Thanks for posting that David. I've assumed they're selling very well. I've been in my local Currys store (a local reseller) and everytime I pop in there they say they're yet to receive the new iMacs due to high demand.

    We would have to consider what the production rates are compared to previous versions and consider what the sales are in a few months. It is typical to sell at a higher volume at the point of introduction. Case in point the VW Beetle in the early 2000's, now, not may

    The future truth (or otherwise) of your assertion will become visible as time passes, right now it's BS.

    Apple can't keep the new iMacs in stock... their flying off of the shelves!

     

    Umm, try reading that article again!

     

    They are unavailable because the Chinese are finding them difficult to glue together!

    Interesting, production problems causing shortages. Mr. Csound1 thinks assertions he doesn't agree with are BS

    I refer to your assertion, not any others. To clarify I will say it again.

     

    Your assertion that the removal of the optical drive will adversely affect sales is currently BS

     

    Try not to misquote me again please.

    I wonder - seriously - what the ratio is of ruined/unusable/bent/broken parts is in the production process? It has to be exceedingly difficult - much like working on a precision watch except that it's 27".

    I have this vision of 100,000 chinese, in groups of four, each clasping the corner of one iMac waiting for the glue to set!
