Apple Mac Studio Coming for Review... When Supply Chain Delivers

Consult with Lloyd on your computer or photographic purchase, backup strategy, archival and storage strategy, etc.

Lead time at Apple is 10-12 weeks for the Mac Studio M1 Ultra, and it will be mid-May before B&H Photo gets units (see loaner below).

If anyone out there gets one and can loean it out for 2-3 days, I can review it quickly. Must be M1 Ultra and have at least 64GB memory.

UPDATE, May 12, 2022: I am canceling the review order for the model discussed below, because all the 128GB models have gone to "end of July" for delivery, presumably due to China problems. But it looks like I can get a 64GB model immediately, so I am requesting that instead. So all tests but one or two can run comfortably in 64GB memory, all the tests will be just as useful and revealing of the M1 Ultra potential.


See previous comments on the Apple Mac Studio.

A big call-out and thank-you to B&H Photo which will be sending the $5199 Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra 20-core CPU / 48-core GPU/ 128GB / 2TB SSD for review. This is exactly the configuration I would buy excepting a preference for a 4TB SSD.

If the budget allows, by all means get the 64-core GPU and/or the 8TB SSD since nothing internally is upgradeable.

Save the sales tax with B&H Payboo. Please and thank you for ordering through B&H with these links. It helps make my reviews possible, such as the recent review of the 2021 Apple MacBook Pro.
