Mac dealers in the U.S. have begun to receive initial shipments of Apple’s new 17-inch Studio Displays. A number of independent dealers told MacMinute they started receiving anywhere between two and five of the mid-range, US$999 displays either last Friday or on Monday. All-important demonstration units were not part of those first shipments, they said. “We were pleasantly surprised when they came through the door,” one dealer told us. “Apple is telling us the trickle should change to a steady flow of 17-inch display shipments over the next two weeks.”
