Apple Thunderbolt Display: What’s the Deal with the Apple Thunderbolt Display Shortage?

Apple Thunderbolt Display: Despite the fact that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has successfully dealt with demand issues for its new iMacs, the company is still lagging behind when it comes to the Thunderbolt Display.

Apple is actually the smart money’s second favorite publicly traded company (see why it’s important to pay attention to hedge fund activity).

At this time, the Thunderbolt Display is only available in limited quantities at resellers. While this may not sound like a big deal, it could be pointing towards an update to the product in the near future.

Apple Inc (AAPL)According to a recent report by AppleInsider, “the 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt Display is sold out at Amazon, MacConnection, and J&R. Resellers MacMall, B&H and Best Buy advertise that they have inventory available.”

This is no huge surprise, however, as it has been noted for more than a month that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is having a difficult time keeping the Thunderbolt Display in stock at some of the most popular resellers.

If you don’t believe that a new Thunderbolt Display is coming soon, take a closer look at this information from the same AppleInsider article:

“In disassembling Apple’s current-generation Thunderbolt Display, the repair experts at iFixit discovered that the device employs the same LG TFT active-matrix LCD screen as the previous-generation 27-inch iMac. Miroslav Djuric, chief information architect at iFixit, described the Thunderbolt Display as “an iMac minus the computing hardware.”

“If that strategy were to continue, then some of the new design elements employed by Apple in its latest iMac would come to the next-generation Thunderbolt Display. The new iMacs include thinner LCD panels that are fused to the front glass of the display.”

There is no denying the fact that a thinner Thunderbolt Display is something that many people are looking forward to. On top of this, it is safe to say that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is in position to release an improved display now that it is all caught up with demand of its iMacs.
