Looks like it’s only the base model. Was hoping to see a 16 core option.
I'm not aware they've ever carried anything other than the base configurations, at least new stock. I do know they can order any configuration you'd like but I wasn't sure what benefit that was over just ordering directly from Apple.

I'm hoping we'll see a discount on the base configuration similar to what we saw with the iMac Pro. If there is one I may pick one up.

Unfortunately there's no discount at this time. But I suspect it's only a matter of time.
Looked at several different store's inventory and none have more than one in stock. A few zeros and some don't even have a listing (i.e., Houston). Even the one model they do have they aren't stocking any significant number. If sell the one than probably get a replacement shipped out eventually.


Have to dig, but at bestbuy's website also. All custom order so probably no chance will be on display in a store.

B&H photo the base model with 1TB is marked as the #1 seller and is in stock.

But check of several Apple stores shows nothing in stock there either. ( Apple Palo Alto and Chicago Michigan Ave & Lincoln Park says one Feb 28 . LA , Houston , NYC all one store at end of month. ).

I don't expect Micro Center to carry many but I think it's a little too early to know what they're going to do. Maybe I should stop by and speak to them about it.

Actually I noticed they have the base model $600 off if you use the link from this article. And one of the higher configs is $1000 off.

I get 10% off the Apple store for being military on all Mac pros even the custom ordered. I could probably help someone out with my discount If anyone needs. I’m about to order one for myself and purchase one for eBay for those guys internationally and perhaps make a few bucks From eBay.

That's most likely against the terms of your military discount - you could lose it completely.

Apple allows limited friends and family discounts for employees, but advertising on a forum read by Apple that you'll use your military discount for others is probably a bad thing to do.
