Resellers Offer Additional Details on Mac Supply Constraints
AppleInsider reports on new details from Apple resellers noting that lead times for reseller orders through Apple have begun to slip for a number of models. The changes are led by the Mac mini, which is now showing shipping windows of 2-3 weeks for both stock models of the desktop computer.
