Haven’t bought anything bigger than an iPod direct from Apple before… but am about to buy an M1 iMac for my folks, and - seems like a fair chunk of a delay? 2-3 weeks.
(Actually - I lie - my eMac was purchased through Apple AU, then delivered via a local Apple authorised mob in Darwin… but that was pre the “Apple Store”.)
Officeworks seems to only have 2-3 models/colours available… JB have none online, nor in either Geelong store… (I saw they had a sign up saying they are not displaying Macs any more due to theft…) Not looking at Harvey Norman.
Is there supply issues in Oz? COVID?
PS For shits-n-giggles I asked for a quote on a trade-in on Apple’s website. Didn’t have the serial number though for their old 2008 iMac, so I put in my 2010 MacPro. “Looks like your Mac is good for recycling”. Har. Har.
