Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra: Delivered!

Alrighty! Woohoo! Yay! Yeehaw! Yippee!

Mar 9, 2022: Ordered Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra. Delivery changed a few times, last estimate June 29.
Apr 19, 2022: Ordered Apple Studio Display that should deliver by June 3.
Jun 3, 2022: Studio Display did arrive on time. Still, I can’t use it since the Mac Studio has not <sigh>.
Jun 24, 2022: Mac Studio M1 Ultra shipped and could be here tomorrow which will be the 109th day.
Jun 25, 2022: Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra: Delivered!

Holy Shmoly, the Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra backorder waiting time was super brutal, especially considering the time I spent waiting for a MacBook Pro M1 Max before I changed the order to this Mac Studio M1 Ultra the day after it was announced. Oh well, the best is worth waiting for, it’s over now!

I will say one thing after using the Mac Studio for the better part of 2 days, it’s a dream to use.

Buying severely constrained Apple products

Supply chain/Covid related product delivery delays have really been a problem with Apple. At this point I think it looks like my experience of 109 days from order placement to delivery for the Mac Studio M1 Ultra is among the worst. Currently Apple is estimating up to 67 days.

The Studio Display took a more palatable 47 days. A MacBook Pro M1 Pro recently ordered is scheduled to take up to 51 days.

Though still bad, product delivery delays appear to be shrinking. Be prepared to have a lot of patience. As a general rule, the more advanced the processor and custom the build, the longer the wait.

My Mac Studio M1 Ultra and Studio Display are here now, amen. Stay tuned for more.

Thanks!

Changed MacBook order to Mac Studio M1 Ultra

Jun 25, 2022: Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra: Delivered!

I had ordered a MacBook Pro M1 Max as I mentioned in this post: Finally a MacBook Pro M1 with all the wanted features because I need very occasional portability, and frankly until yesterday the M1 Max was the best Apple silicon you could get your hands on, but today I decided to switch my back-order to a Mac Studio M1 Ultra.

Announced yesterday March 8, 2022, I just could not get the amazing Mac Studio M1 Ultra out of my head. The Mac Studio model I ordered, compared to the MacBook model I previously ordered has double the CPU cores (10 to 20), 16 more GPU cores (48 cores total, there is a 64 cores model for +$1000, I’ll pass), double the Neural Engine cores (16 to 32), double the RAM (32GB to 64GB), double the media engine enhancements, double the memory bandwidth (400GB/sec to 800GB/sec), 6 Thunderbolt 4 ports, 2 USB Type A ports, and 1 Ethernet RJ-45 (1Gb-10Gb).

All the above for a $300 uptick (since at $199, AppleCare is $200 less). For my occasional portability needs I’ll use my 5 year old Lenovo ThinkPad for now, and get a MacBook Pro M1 Pro or MacBook Pro M2 Pro later.

Holy smokes, what will I do with it, ha! Serious overkill, but this is it folks. I promise, bar an unforeseen increase of income, this is it!

Thanks!
