Supply of Apple’s 27-inch iMac drying up ahead of anticipated update

“With the last iMac update having arrived more than a year ago, third-party resellers are now starting to see limited availability of Apple’s big-screen 27-inch desktop Mac,” AppleInsider reports.

“As of Wednesday, AppleInsider noticed stock-outs of the 3.7-gigahertz 27-inch iMac at Best Buy and J&R, while only a handful of units remain available at Amazon, where it is advertised that more are on the way (Update: Amazon’s listing no longer indicates limited stock),” AppleInsider reports. “In addition, MacMall is currently sold out of the 27-inch iMac with a 2.7 gigahertz processor. The lack of availability at Best Buy is particularly noteworthy as the retailer’s website simply states the all-in-one computer is “not available” both online and in store, with no indication of a restock.”

AppleInsider reports, “Limited availability at Mac resellers is often one of the first signs that Apple is drawing down inventory ahead of a product update. And the iMac line is due for an update, with the most recent refresh released over a year ago, in early May of 2011.”
