Well, I located an Apple Mac Studio top-end except for 64GB memory instead of 128GB.
It lasted all of 5 minutes at B&H—no sooner had I requested it than literally 5 minutes later out of stock it went—and all useful (to me) models are now "end of July" delivery.
Unless there is a reader getting a new one who can loan it out for 2-3 days, I don’t see how I can review the Apple Mac Studio before August.
The supply chain for some things is atrociously bad, and Apple is now suffering major bottlenecks in delivering. Not that the US government has gotten its thumb out of its ass in doing anything useful about it.
Way back in 2017, I wrote:
...years ago I was thinking just how risky it was for Apple to rely so heavily on one country to build its products, particularly the iPhone. That risk has now emerged as not so far fetched...
Apple only doubled-down on its risk in depending on China, and getting in bed with the CCP, and those chickens are coming home to roost. China and the CCP are the next Russia.
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.
