Not surprised they are reserving the hard drives for their high end customers but it almost would seem as if they are flipping their normal customers the bird.
All a consequence of nature and the floods in Thailand... It going to be a long time before any company makes it through really; I mean just look at how much devastation the floods caused. I detailed this a lot in prior posts relating to this subject and the main subject is how hard drives and some components from Thailand seem to make up a majority of consumer electronics.
Sure, SSD's may gain a traction because of this but it's going to be a long time before SSD's become as reliable as HDD's; and since it's not there the market for such electronics is going to be in turmoil unless Thailand manages to make a decent recovery.

That makes complete sense, I mean you would want to keep all your customers happy but if push came to shove and you had to focus on one customer the preference always tends to be those who spend the "dough" and are likely to bring back more business.

Damn thats crazy... I saw a hard drive I bought for $80 on newegg up to $220 the other day.
Has the shortage of hard drives effected Apples pricing of iMac's at all, like have they adjusted the prices of their computers to compensate for the increased price in components?
(or do you think that'll happen when their current stock/supply runs out)
Yeah! Apple supporters are all loyal & they'll bare the brunt of it with hopes of less expectations than they normally would have. Good to read this article! Good to be informed!
The hard drive used in the iMac is not the same hard drive used in the MacPro. It has a specific chipset to monitor heat that is the only hard drive the iMac can use. You can not just put any 3.5 SATA hard drive in the brand new 2011 iMac the way you can with the MacPro. Here are two supporting articles.
Yeah! It's good to see, but I don't think any of their customers will go to other brands. They seem to be a loyal lot.
