    New Lead Ship Times
    Apple has changed the lead ship times for the iPad on their online store to 7 to 10 business days.

    Any indications on the reason behind this?

    Specs:
    17 inch 2 GHz C2D imac (5,1) with 3GB DDR2 RAM, X1600 (128MB memory) GPU - OSX 10.6.3
    For the same reason as my post here. Simply too much demand and not enough product made to meet that demand.

    The question is where in the link is there a bottleneck? Do they simply not have the manufacturing resources to meet demand or is a shortage on certain components?

    I would assume that if it isn't a component shortage that they could ramp up production to meet demand.

    The bottleneck as far as I know it is, they can't make the multitouch screens fast enough to meet the current demand.

    A word of advice to you. Trolling on random forums does not make you popular.

    I was pointing out the iPad appears to be quite a success despite initial pessimism from many saying that it would be Steve Jobs' greatest mistake in recent history.

    Maybe a failure at humour. But does it really qualify as trolling on a pro-Mac forum? I even had a smiley at the end to denote the less than serious tone in case the text wasn't hyperbolic enough to already indicate this

    yeah it's really hard to show sarcasm on a forum. Unfortunately. And it's often mistaken for trolling or somethnig else
