    Anyone else notice that the 12 core is going to take more time than others Pros? Do you think there going to do the system refresh soon?

    This sounds like the "Ships in: xxx yyyy days " notifications on various Apple web stores. It is a pretty poor predicative indicator these days. Typically it is only highly accurate when people look backwards in the aftermath of a refresh.

    Apple spends $100's of thousands (if not millions) on infrastructure to allow them to keep a limited amount of inventory on stock and in the pipeline. Sometimes a small bubble may pop up where some unexpected folks decide to order and Apple runs slightly short. That's not sign of a refresh.

    A relatively low number of folks buy 12 cores. The inventory for those is going to be the thinnest and most susceptible to minor bumps in demand.
