Apple's iMac Shortage Reportedly Fixed
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- One of the major blemishes in Apple's (AAPL) first-quarter earnings was the sharp decline in Mac sales, falling more than 1 million year over year. That problem could be fixed, as the new iMac shortage reportedly has been solved.
Brightwire, via the China Times, is reporting that the iMac, which has been capacity-constrained since it was launched in November has now been fixed, and that mass production is now in full capacity.
Some of Apple's Taiwanese component suppliers noted that assembling the iMac, which is notoriously very difficult because of its sleek, thin look, has been improved and sales should be strong in the first quarter of 2013.
