If you’ve been waiting to purchase a new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iMac but aren’t patient enough to wait on the estimated shipping times from two to four weeks, we’ve got some news you’re going to like. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) recently updated their shipping times to one to three business days. This new shipping time frame is available for both iMac versions – the 21.5 inch and 27-inch versions.
The 21.5 inch iMac officially went on sale about three weeks ago. The new shipping times are a significant improvement for the company.
Tim Cook, the chief executive officer of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), blames low sales during the first quarter on poor supply. Mainly because the new iMac computers are much thinner than the previous generations.
The new iMacs feature 8GB of memory, 1TB of storage, and NvidiaGeForce GT 640M graphics. The only difference between the two computers is that the higher priced version (which retails for $1,499) features 2.9 GHz processor, while the lower priced version features a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor.
Unfortunately, these shipping time adjustments are available for US and Canadian customers only. Shipping times for other countries vary. In the United Kingdom and France, shipping times are estimated from five to seven days for the 21.5 inch model and one to two weeks for the 27-inch model. In Italy and Germany, the shipping rates for both versions are about one to two weeks. Japan and China shoppers have to wait three to five days for the smaller version and one to three days for the larger version.
The new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iMac debuted in stores on the last day of November with the initial shipping time frame from two to three weeks. Just mere hours later, the shipping frame expanded to three to four weeks. Earlier this year, the shipping time for the 21-inch version of the iMac dropped to two to three weeks.
