“Apple’s big-screen 27-inch iMac looks to be in extremely limited supply this holiday, as the estimated shipping time has already lengthened less than 24 hours after the new all-in-one desktop went on sale,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.

“Apple’s online store originally advertised that the new 27-inch iMac would ship to new orders within two to three weeks,” Marsal reports. “But just hours after the slimmer iMac became available, new orders are now advertised to ship in three to four weeks.”

Marsal reports, “The revised shipping estimate suggests that new orders may not arrive in time for Christmas.”
