Reports of Low iMac Inventory Hint at a Refresh
Posted on July 22, 2010 by vincent oliver
AppleInsider is reporting that Apple has ceased production of its current iMacs in anticipation of a new model coming soon. The new models are rumored to included a dual-core Core i5 model, as well as quad-core Core i5 and Core i7 configurations.
A person familiar with the matter says the Mac maker is informing some of its distributors not to expect any further stock of the entry level 21.5-inch, 3.06GHz iMac, implying that production of that model has ceased.
Meanwhile, those with ties to the company’s stateside reseller channels are being advised to sell through their stock of all existing iMac models and to keep their inventories as lean as possible for the next few weeks.
