MacBook Pro M1 Max Shipping in 2022 — Consider a 10-Core iMac 5K with Gorgeous Large Display Instead, and Save $1500 too!
If you wanted a MacBook Pro M1 Max this year, such as to write off as a business expense, it looks a little late to get one from Apple. Rats!
The model I’d want for myself is the $4899 one shown below. Well, of course I’d want an 8TB SSD, but for my own uses, 4TB will always be enough since it would not be a primary machine (and I have 16+8+8 = 32TB of SSD on my 2019 Mac Pro).
Give authorized Apple dealer B&H Photo a try—maybe they can deliver from a batch they’ll get from Apple (no promises, dunno).
In the meantime, a 10-core iMac 5K is a far better choice for a desktop setup, including a far larger screen, more memory, etc. And it’s not likely to ever disappoint. Just be sure to order it with only 8GB of memory, save the sales tax by buying it at B&H using their Payboo card, then add 128GB memory from OWC.
