The big questions are how long is your riding season and how long can you wait? You could most likely walk out of the dealership with the bike you want for a good deal tomorrow.
If you wait until very late Jul or early Aug (new bikes are announced at the dealers meet - most likely the last week of Jul). They will most likely prebuild some of the 12's (last year it was XC's in black) but you'll have limited color selection.
If you pick a 12 that wasn't prebuilt you'll have to order. Delivery should take 4 to 6 weeks but depending on the amount of orders and the number of dealers in the region it could take longer. It's not cost effective to ship 1 bike at a time so they use distro delivery.
