New Apple iMac release may slip to 2013

apple-imac-specifications-release-date.jpgLusting over Apple's super-svelte new iMac models? If you're holding out for their release, you better get yourself comfortable; it's now looking as though the computers' pencilled in November or December 2012 release dates will slip to early 2013.

A "commercial source" claims Apple will miss the lucrative Christmas window, with manufacturing issues leading to shortages of both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs.

French blog MacBidouille reports that a source told it that "Apple has delayed the release of its iMac" as a result of "more problems than usual due to the new manufacturing process".

Apple have employed a friction-stir welding process in the new machines, which according to Apple "uses a combination of intense friction-generated heat and pressure to intermix the molecules of the two aluminium surfaces -- creating a seamless, precise and superstrong join." This complicated process is though to be the main issue leading to delays.

Though Tim Cook has already hinted at there being "significant shortages" of the new iMacs at launch, Apple's online store still states a November launch of both models for both UK and US territories. Fingers crossed then.
