Standing Firm: Apple Shipping Banana And Cherry iMacs In New Bunch
[Editor's Note: We orginally said that the Tangerine and Lime units would be replaced. This has been properly corrected to say that the Tangerine and Strawberry units are out to make room for the new Banana and Cherry models.]

A few days ago, the San Francisco Chronicle ran a story saying that Apple would be shipping a Banana and Cherry iMac to replace the Tangerine and Strawberry models that weren't selling so well. We passed this onto our Observers with the opinion that this was a great move. [Editor's Note: We have also run some opinions that Apple should make this move] Yesterday we received SKU numbers from an anonymous CompUSA employee that confirmed 333 MHz models were on the way, but the SKU numbers went with the original 5 colors and seemed to indicate that new colors were not on the way.

A lot can change overnight and we received e-mail from several retailers that told us we should have stuck to our guns because the new colors are a reality. This came from a retailer requesting anonymity:

Just because CompUSA and even wholesaler Ingram Micro has sku'd up Tangerine and Strawberry iMac's doesn't mean that they won't ship Banana and Cherry instead...because that's exactly what's going to happen...

The SF paper is dead on accurate, FYI...

Anonymous reseller...

Other mail was similar, and it appears that the new colors are a reality. Apple is once again showing that they know how to Think Different.
