    Order tips:
    Education & EPP discounts DO apply today!
    If you order the trackpad, it will delay shipment.

    I confirmed that the business discount will not beat the military or education discount.

    Each upgrade is $800 ($720 if you have the discounted)
    Except the video card, that's about $600 ($540 discounted)

    Still checking pretty much by the hour. I'm exhausted. 7:17am here now.

    I just want to get my order in. I can't see the business dept giving a discount for one iMac Pro, but if you're ordering more than one, I can definitely see that as a possibility.

    WEBSITE ISN'T FULL UP YET
    Go through EPP or Education if you got it.

    My prices were dead on, 800 for each upgrade (720 for the discount)

    10 core/64GB/Vega 64/2TB/Magic Trackpad

    Ships 1-2 weeks: Delivers: Dec 28 - Jan 5 by 2-3 Business Days



    It was showing delivers Dec 27-28 until I swapped the mouse out for the Trackpad. :(

    On the positive side, I was surprised that the regular iMac AppleCare pricing applied. Quite the bargain for a machine this pricey.

    Mine also has 1-2 weeks. 10-core, 64GB RAM, 16GB Vega.

    So glad the day has finally arrived to purchase one... life-changing machine for some of us.

    I really hope it comes in before the end of this year. I got myself the 10-core, Vega 64, 2TB SSD, 32GB option. I will consider replacing the RAM at another time if I ever need to.

    RAM is not user upgradeable.

    Actually, it is. It has been confirmed that Apple Stores or any Authorized Apple Service Center can replace the RAM. For those that choose to do it themselves, on a regular iMac, it only takes about 10 minutes to remove the display and get to that area and about 15 minutes to put everything back together.

    One option is to start with 64 GB of RAM and then upgrade once 128 GB kits come down in price. One could simply do this at the 3-year point when the AppleCare warranty is up...or you could easily pay or do work-in-exchange with an Authorized Service Center to install RAM that you buy yourself.

    At any rate, it is not as hard as people think...

    Where did you read that the RAM is upgradeable on the iMac Pro? That runs counter to everything that I have read.

    It isn't soldered down and someone verified that Apple and authorized Apple repair shops will be able to upgrade your system for you at a later date.

    Exactly zero people have done this so far.

    Based on the way people have done this on other Apple products in the past, if you do it at Apple, it's full Apple cost. If you do it at an Authorized Apple repair shop, it could be full Apple price or they may allow you to BYO memory or maybe have an alternate (lower) price than apple but they supply it.

    Note that the cost of upgrading an existing system SHOULD be more expensive than the parts, as it takes trained labor to open it up and put it back together.

    driftless, sorry for taking awhile to get back to you. I was working on a project. As mentioned, iMore received word from Apple today that it is in fact replaceable. There’s also a front page story about it here on MacRumors. It isn’t too terribly hard to do on your own. Getting the adhesive for the re-assembly is the only time-consuming process.

    Thanks. I last looked at the front page before that thread was posted. I just read it and the iMore article.

    I take it no one’s order has moved into the shipping phase yet? I’m assuming the initial supply will ship first for those with standard configs, the n the first half of the 1-2 weeks, then the second half. I ordered in the first 5 mins. The only difference can be seen when your Mac could arrive in store. Mine was listed as 2 Jan, & a few hours later listed as 8 Jan.

    No change with mine, either. I am listed for Jan 3rd (UK). I got notification that my order had shipped, but it was Apple Care!

    We'll see what happens. I have one more project to get out that's urgent for next Friday, and then I can take a week or two off and wait for the iMac Pro to go to work on the next six I will have in the backlog. No great rush for me - I am out shooting four days in the next two weeks anyways.

    I was just worried that it would be similar to the Trash Can release and we'd be waiting until March. It's great to see that you can still order today and get much the same delivery time.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if it reads "Order in Progress," it means it is being built or at least in in their queue system to begin that day. Afterwards, it should go to Preparing for shipment or similar.

    It's been nearly 7 years since I bought a Mac, so I can't remember - hope you're right though!

    It has been 3 years for me, but I think that is the right meaning for "Order in Progress". Do we know where these are being made?
