The recent delay in shipping 27-inch iMac systems is being blamed on LG Display problems. According to sources at DigiTimes, the problem has been caused by trouble with the lamination process.
According to production numbers, the 27-inch iMac systems have been limited to just 100,000 units per month.
In comparison, the 21.5-inch iMacs are shipping 300,000 to 400,000 units per month without display delays.
Apple is hoping to push up production of 27-inch iMac units by February 2013.
Buyers attempting to purchase a 27-inch iMac can now expect to wait at least three to four weeks for a new system to arrive. The iMac display problem is believed to have been caused by the extremely thin design utilized by Apple.
The 27-inch iMac display problem has caused a unique problem for Apple. Instead of shrinking delays over time, the company has remained stagnant with its shipping.
With analysts predicting a whole slew of new Apple products for 2013, delays could be increased as Apple continues to create thinner displays with more technology packed inside.
Are you willing to wait up to one months time to purchase a 27-inch Mac, or would you rather choose a cheaper option with a smaller display?
