If Apple had taken orders for 150,000 iMacs in the first Three weeks I wonder how many they have sold now. From what I can see the waiting times are increasing. Apple is not catching up with demand at this stage.

Considering their contract is for 100,000 iMacs per month, I can't see the waiting line getting any shorter for a while. At least not until they catch up with the orders placed already (which will still be the middle to late part of March).

I estimate it could have climbed to 200-250,000+ by now.

Production will grow in the next month. They sold 6.000.000 first generation iMacs in less then 4 years, that are more then 125.000 per month.
Assuming that they will sell more second generation iMacs, they'll have to increase production up to 200.000/month 'til summer and catch up orders end of the year.
To see it another way, its a luxury class product, how long will you wait for a Porsche?
