Retina MacBook Pro Shipping Estimates Improve to 5-7 Business Days

Just a day after Apple added new build-to-order configuration options to the low-end Retina MacBook Pro, shipping estimates have improved from 1-2 weeks to 5-7 business days in the company's online stores. The faster turnaround time is showing up in the company's online stores in the Americas, and should spread to its Asia-Pacific and European distribution channels shortly.


Shipping estimates for the Retina MacBook Pro quickly ballooned to 3-4 weeks within 36 hours of the machine's introduction in June, holding at that level until mid-July before beginning to come down. The most recent improvement before today came nearly two weeks ago when estimates moved from 2-3 weeks to 1-2 weeks.

You don't give a ****** so much you had to tell people? Sounds like you're trying to convince yourself of something.

Was really hoping the 13" retina would be available before tax free weekend. Doesn't look like that will happen.

You didn't have to ask. I never said I was going to state the source of the discount. Just commenting that this is good news for me.


Well when you make a statement like that you ought to expect it'll pique interest. In fact, I'd wager you made the statement for the sole purpose of piquing interest. But since you can't say, I'll just assume you're a troll and move forward with my own (explained) discounts.
