So many of us are going to be waiting a month or two to see what other bugs are revealed in the 2019 models. I'm really hoping to get one later this year - wouldn't want to be an early adopter though.

On a tangential note, I wonder when iMacs will get T2 (or whatever version) chip?
When Apple finally decides to remove the spinning HDD from the entry level iMac SKUs. T2 don't work with spinning hard drives.
