Hello all, I ordered an iMac Pro with an 18 core configuration back on release day, and my estimated delivery date is still Feb 6 - 20th. I was wondering if anyone else has ordered an 18 (or 14) core variant and had an updated delivery. When I ordered the computer, Apple estimated 4-8 weeks. If it arrived on Feb 2, that would be 8 weeks. I understand that Intel is holding the purchase up with their release of the processors, but still this seems like Apple underestimated the wait time.
I'm in the USA, for reference.
My ultimate nightmare is that I receive this beast, unbox it ... and it's a lemon and I need to send it back for a replacement. Apple wouldn't charge me for this I know, but I would have to wait longer.Well done.... you should receive credit for your patience for sure. It must have been an agonizing wait...
Not to rub it in, but my 10-core got to me within 24 hrs after ordering it from B&H on Jan 15th (with a -$500 promo discount) and after waiting 4 weeks with no status on my previous 10-core order place Dec 15, 2017 with my business retailer, which I had to cancel.

Thanks for the link to Jonathan Morrison, great overall review!I had to do this with my 10-core, which had a misaligned screen hanging off the right side about 2 mm. Sent it back and was refunded, but ended up not ordering the replacement yet, as I'm still trying to decide between the 10-core and 18-core! Been eagerly awaiting a reviews like the one from Jonathan Morrison that came out today.
