Six months after the Mac Studio hit the market, Apple is still dealing with delivery issues. Various foreign media report the problems in their market, but what about the situation in the Netherlands?
If you want to buy a new Mac Studio, you should think about it carefully at this point. On the one hand because of the gigantic amount you have to put on the table, but on the other hand also because of the patience you have to have. It will take a while before you are provided with your copy. And by short I mean, really long.
Order Mac Studio in the Netherlands
In March 2022, Apple announced the new Mac Studio. Besides the fact that I don’t want to believe that this has been almost half a year ago, I also can’t believe that Apple still can’t meet the demand. Almost immediately after the announcement, the first problems surfaced. The hope was that this would change soon, but practice shows a different development.
Dutch consumers who want to get started with the Mac Studio are both lucky and unlucky. It may sound a bit confusing, but it completely has to do with which model you’re getting. If you go for the 10-core CPU Studio with the M1 Max chip, it is possible to pick it up on Tuesday, September 6 in the Apple Store. If you have it delivered at home, you will be provided between August 30 and September 6. Not so much going on, then.
However, if you need more computing power, you will run into problems. The 24-core CPU model with the M1 Ultra chip is a long time coming. If you order the Apple computer today, you can pick it up in the Apple Store in just under nine weeks. We are talking about Tuesday 25 October. Do you have it delivered to your home? Then it is possible to receive it between October 11 and October 25.
What exactly is going on at Apple?
Since its launch in March, Apple has been running into problems with the Mac Studio. Consumers who pre-ordered it were the big winners, because things went wrong from the official launch. Apple’s new computer was soon out of stock. New orders were soon delivered until April and things didn’t get any better.
What exactly is going on at Apple? Officially, we don’t have an answer to that. The American company does not release any reports about the delivery problems. It could be the result of a huge success in that regard. However, there is a good chance that there is more going on.
Like the rest of the market, Apple is without a doubt dealing with a chip shortage. As a result, production does not run as planned, which means that it has fewer units on offer than originally intended. An excellent example of supply and demand. Annoying, both for the consumer and for Apple.
It’s hoped that the issues, both for the Mac Studio and future products, can be resolved soon.
