The reason I ask is... My wife's 2017 machine has had SO many repairs: two keyboard repairs, one screen repair, and then the touchbar stopped working. All under Applecare. The genius said it was just way too much, and they're going to replace the machine. My wife really tried to get a 2018 machine, given the fact that it might have a fixed keyboard. The guy said he could do a 2018 machine if hers were a stock model, but because it was CTO, he coudldn't do a direct replacement in the store. He'd have to order a CTO 2017 machine for her. He put the order through... He said it would take ten days, and it looks like it still isn't quite ready yet. What are the chances she just gets a 2018 model? I can't imagine CTO 2017 is a thing anymore... more likely is they have a stack of refurbs of every possible configuration in the back somewhere. Curious to hear your thoughts!
