Apple's G5 Power Mac and iPod products appear scarce in UK sales channels.

While the Quad G5 seems the most readily available of the present generation of professional Macs, the 2.0GHz and 2.3GHz dual processor models are in short supply, according to information received.

However, the Apple UK website indicates that customers ordering any of these Power Macs can expect their order to ship in 24 hours.

A report also indicates that iPod models are in short supply, with outstanding back orders likely to take some time to fill. Once again, Apple's website store shows just a 24-hour wait for these products to ship.

It's not clear if the information reflects a temporary supply glitch.
