Apple (AAPL) Might Be 20%+ Behind MacBook Shipment Goal

December 4, 2012 6:48 AM EST
Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) is indicated lower Tuesday amid chatter that it is trimming orders for 13-inch MacBook components.

According to Digitimes, Apple is say to already have enough inventory for components, with vendors unsure of when orders will resume. In addition, vendors said that current shipments are about 20 percent shy of Apple's original estimates.

Part of the slowdown might be due to Apple recently announcing that orders for its new iMac opened up, while other consumers might be opting more for the iPad over anything else.

Still, being 20 percent behind a shipment goal might make some investors uneasy, particularly given that holiday spending is expected to increase this year.
