Oh my. So the wait list is over 4 months? Anyone just take the plunge and get the more expensive (but immediately available) one?
Agree with @penultimatejawa . Additionally, there would likely have been a fair number of units in the initial shipment that went to pro artists, engineers, reviewers, and industry friends.Four months is a bit inaccurate given that they didn't start shipping until mid-March (I think?). It's also most likely that the wait-list was entirely front loaded, with the majority of people signing up within the first few days or weeks of it being announced and it tapering off over time. And it also seems like the number of units per batch ramped up recently (someone speculated air vs boat shipping, with a small batch arriving by air first for QA purposes or whatever).
Mostly, it's impossible to say for sure without knowing the behind the scenes at Fractal. Either way, I'd be fairly surprised if someone signing up for the wait list now has to wait nearly as long as the people who signed up early did.
@decreebass can't hurt to get on the list.
