While most PC manufacturers have started to announce the new Ivy bridge-based computer models, the availability and/or launch date could be in fact delayed. According to Digitimes, Intel would not be able to deliver all CPU orders due to a lower than expected yield with the new 3D 22-nm engraving process. 


In the first couple of weeks, this low production volume should not have a strong impact, but if it lasts or does not improve with the predicted availability of dual core Ivy Bridge in June, it could strongly affect sales of computers for the Back to School season; a critical period for all manufacturers.
So far, Apple did not announce any new products, but it should quickly change, except if Apple cannot get enough CPUs from Intel. Indeed, Apple is now ensuring to have secured enough CPU before announcing and launching its new models in order to be able to face demands. As Tim Cook has been in charge of aligning and optimizing Apple supply chains with the switch to Intel CPU, we can be certain that there will be not announcement before Apple is ready to go.
