Apple Online Stores Nearing Immediate Availability of Retina MacBook Pro Models

Build-to-order configurations understandably take some additional processing time in many markets, with customizations generally bumping estimates up to 5-7 business days. Interestingly, customizing an order in an online store in the Americas does not result in any additional processing time, with all configurations being quoted the same 2-4 business day estimate as seen for stock models.
Some customers are undoubtedly still waiting for signs of a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, which has been rumored for an October launch. With Apple also appearing set to launch a new iPhone, the "iPad mini", and updated iPod models, the company seems primed to pack in a significant number of updates for the remainder of the calendar year.
