Buy This Now On Amazon

When Apple unveiled the new 27-inch iMac with Core i7 CPU option in October I was pretty smitten by it.
Then in November reports appeared that the big iMacs were arriving broken. Earlier this week more problems with the 27-inch iMac led to a shipment stop.
If you order a 27-inch iMac now on the Apple Store it says that it ships in 2 weeks.

This pushes the arrival of the uber iMac into 2010 and therefore cannot make it under a Christmas tree in time for Christmas Day.

I am very glad that I did not find time to actually buy a Core i7 iMac yet as I hate hardware problems especially when we talk about something that costs beyond two grand. Now I can safely move this decision to 2010.

Apple's holiday sales are not going to be hurt by that delay. The current bestsellers on the Apple Store are led by MacBook and MacBook Pro. The iMac is still in 4th place. I assume many customers go with the more affordable 21.5-inch iMacs.

The 27-inch iMac is of course also featured in our Top 100 Holiday Gifts 2009.
