Any rumors or substantiations as to why the delay in the i macs?

    Apple says the new iMac (not i mac) not ready for delivery to consumers. Does it really matter why the delay - about 60 days, occurred? I don't think so. And you're not going to find answers here in any event. AI supposedly has a "sketch" of what the new iMac looks like but so far has not published it.

    Nothing but rampant speculation so far.

    Because they're not done yet.

    They are in fact being manufactured as we speak. According to reports a few weeks ago out of Taiwan, pre-production units were being made. I suspect the hang up might have been lack of delivery of G5 chips (probably the old 120nm ones at 1.6Ghz-1.8Gz which run cooler then the newer 90nm ones.) As in any new design ramping up is always hit and miss. Don't be surprised if the new iMac resembles a smaller version of the Cube!
