Apple’s iMac Pro started arriving early for some customers who ordered it quickly, but it’s still not yet available for in-store pick up at Apple retail locations. Certain Best Buy locations, however, show the iMac Pro as being in stock for in-store pickup today.
Apple’s base model iMac Pro with an 8-core Xeon W Processor is the only model currently available at Best Buy stores, and it’s available today in some locations. The base model, which starts at $4999, comes with the following specifications:
- 8-Core Intel Xeon W Processor
- 32GB DDR4 ECC RAM
- Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU
- 1TB SSD
Only certain Best Buy locations currently show the iMac Pro available with in-store pickup today, with other locations showing a shipping date of December 28th for online orders. In comparison, the Apple Store isn’t yet showing any in-store pickup availability that we’ve seen, with the base model iMac Pro reporting a January 4th delivery date.
Right now, only two stores near Los Angeles, California (the Torrance location and Woodland Hills location) have any stock available for in-store pickup. As noted by the company itself, as you can see in the screenshot above, there is limited stock, so if you want to secure one before they run out you should order online for in-store pickup.
In both cases, if you do order online your order should be ready within an hour, so Best Buy has a quick turnaround time.
As mentioned above, this is the base iMac Pro model, which means you’ll get the 27-inch 5K display, the 8-core Intel Xeon W processor, 1TB of built-in storage, 32GB of RAM, and Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU. You will also get the included accessories (which are all Space Gray to match the iMac Pro), including the Magic Keyboard with Numeric Pad and the Magic Mouse 2.
Thus, if you’re interested in the iMac Pro and don’t want to wait any longer, it may be worth checking out Best Buy to see if it’s available for in-store pickup and/or faster shipping in your area.
This is only for the base model 8-core iMac Pro. We will keep you updated on the availability of the iMac Pro. Watch this space.
