27-Inch iMac Shipping Times Continue to Improve

Several MacRumors readers have reported that Apple's shipping lead times for its 27-inch iMac models in its online stores have improved today, with the U.S. and Canada now seeing lead times of 5-7 business days instead of 2 weeks and European stores seeing improvement to 2 weeks from earlier 3-week estimates.

Apple has continued to face lengthy shipping times for its 27-inch iMac models, with the company claiming that the delays have stemmed from high demand. The company has also been struggling, however, with several issues related to the displays on the machines, including flickering and yellow tinting. The company has issued a pair of firmware updates to address the flickering issues for existing customers, while it apparently continues to investigate the tinting issues.
