Analysts have warned that Apple could suffer financially because of the short supply of its latest flatpanel iMac.
According to a report from analyst Merrill Lynch, the new iMac is shipping in extremely limited quantities.
Apple expected to ship 200,000 machines over January and February.
But the report estimates that only between 5,000 and 10,000 of the company's 800MHz SuperDrive model were shipped in February, and only 5,000 in January.
The company has also only shipped the high-end 800MHz iMac model so far, but had also expected to ship its mid range CD-RW/DVD model by this time.
The entry level 700MHz CD-RW, which is currently scheduled for a March launch, is now being quoted with a five to seven week wait.
The Merrill Lynch study cites production problems in Taiwan as the root of the shortage, and said that radiation problems with the product could be the reason for manufacturing issues.
The analyst warned that Apple's earnings could be hit by the delay, but still predicted that revenues for the March quarter would be $1.5bn.
Apple shares on Nasdaq yesterday dropped $1.71 to $21.96.
